One thing I’ve learned throughout my fitness journey (and this applies to anything, not just running) is that EVERYBODY STARTS SOMEWHERE. It’s so easy to get intimidated […]

#runCLE // 2015 Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon Official Ambassador


I can’t even begin to describe my level of excitement for this announcement! I closely followed the official bloggers from this past year and loved reading about their journeys and training – especially after I got selected to guest blog for the 2014 Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon and completed my first 10K! It was such an […]
