You know those running blogs, Instagram feeds, or Facebook posts that show a perfect life. Where every run feels amazing, and they just LOVE every minute of every run?
This is NOT one of those runner blogs.
Life is not the sunshine and rainbows most people show the world. Elite runners go through the same doubts, fears, confidence issues, and setbacks as everyone else (even if I am the only one who will admit it!), and on my blog, I will share those experiences (good and bad) with you, check out my honesty page for those posts.
Don’t worry though, it’s not all doom and gloom! I am an optimist and it’s not all bad. I also will share lots of advice for you from what I have learned about running. You will get glimpses into my training as a marathoner, what to eat before running, recipes I love to include in my runner diet, and most of all, why I am not going to eat 100% healthy or give up my favorite foods to be a skinny runner over an athlete.
My family, friends, and health are more important to me than anything, so I will never recommend anything to you that I would not use myself.
I hope you find my honest ramblings about my struggles useful to help build your confidence in who YOU are, as we are all out there together, fighting those mental demons. Be Brave. Be Strong. Be YOU! I really love getting to know other runners, so please, help me get to know you!
