Running brings so many different things to different people. I think that's what makes it so powerful, so many different people brought together for the love of pushing themselves mentally and physically.
I have been an athlete for most of my life. Mainly competitive swimming in high school and college along with coaching swim teams during that time.
I started running again after having my kids to get back in shape and be healthy. After a few 5 and 10k's I decided to train for a half marathon and it was when I crossed that finish line that I knew I was in love and wanted more! I was in love with feeling healthy and strong knowing my kids saw that too. It was amazing. I did many more half marathons and other races and then decided to challenge myself again, I was going to train for a full marathon. I turned to Charm City Run. The support they gave me and the confidence they helped me build in my running pushed me across the finish line for 2 marathons and many more to come!
No matter the distance, pace, or what drives you I will help you reach your goals! Together anything is possible!! I always tell my friends, in life it takes a village!
