Finally got a long run done…

After the issues with my left leg the IT Band and the piriformis muscle, a few frustrating short runs, walks, and some tears. Today I was able complete a long run! I was totally excited but boy was I exhausted..whew! I completed 8 miles!! YAY!!


It was my longest run yet. I started about 8:30 this morning I meant to be out by 7:30 because it was going to be hot today but I overslept. Before I left home I did some foam rolling with my leg so I guess that helped with the run. It was slow so I was just a little disappointed but I guess goal was to complete it and I was glad to have finally accomplish this goal..maybe this half-marathon is going to happen…

Begin with the end in mind…

I was born and raised in WV. I live in Charleston, WV. I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Charleston and from Marshall University Graduate College with my Master’s Degree. I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor. I have been in the field of mental health and substance abuse for about 26 years. I started running about two years ago by beginning a running program to help me prepare for my first 5k. I had wanted to run a 5k for years but never got around to doing it. Two years ago there was an event that happened which sent me on an emotional rollercoaster; starting this program was a way to get off that rollercoaster. Once I finished that first 5k I got the running bug and haven't stopped running since.
