I love to run. I love my family, friends, volunteer work, coffee. But I LOVE to run.
Running has brought a measure of stability to a very uncertain period in my life. In short, running grounds me.
Through running, I find my center, and my space. Running is simple. One foot in front of the other.
The very act puts me in touch with my inner self. When I run, I discover that I’m capable of more than I ever thought I was. I run to be better, stronger and faster. But beneath it all, running brings me joy. Running is the essence of who I am.
Our sport becomes not just what we do but an integral symbol—on all levels—of who we are.

When I run, I am a better person. I am a better daughter, sister, friend. I am a better colleague and employee.
There is something immensely satisfying about completing a workout, be it a Sunday morning long run, or a particularly brutal speed or hill session. Tired achy legs, soggy pony tails, and suddenly all is right with the world.
