I’ve always wanted to be a runner. In my early teens I would hop on the treadmill in my parents’ basement and run a mile a day, but that’s as far as I got. I decided to revisit running again in 2012 with the Ease Into 5K program and I fell in love. I went from struggling with 1 minute of running to running 45 minutes with no issue.
In 2012 I participated in a 5K for the first time in my life, and I’ve been addicted ever since. I’ve discovered virtual 5Ks and participated in many, and I even host my own every year on October 15th called the Tiny Angels 5K in honor of Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day after the loss of our three babies. I love collecting bling, and more importantly, I love what each medal stands for. My husband bought me beautiful holders for both my medals and my bibs and I display them proudly in my office.
