This blog focuses on running from an amateur perspective – Before starting this blog, I had never run more than 8 miles in my life! Now I have completed three half-marathons in three months, and am striving to continue with more in the spring!
In many ways, running is an analogy for life. I find there is inspiration out on the road – inspiration to be found within yourself and within others. Running stories are incredible, and running long-distance truly changes you, as cheesy as it sounds. I find that quality alone time allows me to clear my mind and gain some introspection.
For those who say, “I can’t run that far,” that used to be me! I firmly believe that – barring certain medical conditions – anyone can build up the base to run a long-distance race. It is a wonderful form of weight-loss, a stress-reliever and an excellent way to gain mental clarity. If you think you can’t do it; I will be your cheerleader! You will find you have more energy, feel healthier and happier once you start training. Plus, everyone should experience the runner’s high!
The13thMile blog topics focus on tips and tricks that I learn, my training challenges, the training challenges of others as well as anything and everything related to running, overall fitness, cross-training, weight-loss, nutrition and diet.
Please feel free to reach out to me – I would love to interview readers, experts, nutritionists, personal trainers, coaches, marathoners, etc. If you have a story to tell, I encourage you to contact me.
