April 2013 - I signed up for first 5K with my family to support Autism. I had done no training and just thought I would be ok because I was "in shape" from playing basketball each day. Well the day before the 5K I got a severe sprain and was on crutches watching the 5K. This was really my first introduction into the world of running. I immediately had strong feelings of wanting to be out there competing with people.
May 2013 - Got off crutches & on May15th did my first run since high school. It was just an out & back run on a gravel road from our house. I lost count of how many times I stopped for air or to just walk. It was rough, but i was determined to keep trying.
I have had many challenges and tough runs but have got myself ready to run my 1st Marathon on May 4, 2014. That is less than 365 days from my 1st run.
I will finish the 12 months with over 1000 total miles logged.
Here are my races for the past 12 months.
