Life sometimes catches you completely unawares.
First and foremost I am a mother. I am a mother to two wonderful children.
I am a daughter. I have a strong relationship with my parents and am moving back to my hometown to be close to them again.
I am a runner. I started training for 5Ks and found that running opened up a whole new place of peace for me. It gave me a way to release my anxiety and stress plus get me moving and exercising.
I am a survivor. I nearly died in October of 2011 of multiple and massive pulmonary embolisms. I refuse to let that hold me back. I have made it my goal to show that I can survive by running a marathon.
