If you're new here and want to find out more about me, check out the about me tag!
Thanks for stopping by Hit the Ground Running!
In 2017 I was diagnosed with chronic exertional compartment syndrome and underwent bilateral fasciotomies on my lower legs. I am therefore in the second half of my running story, and am a different runner than I was prior to that experience. You can read more about that entire process on my CECS page.
Besides running, I enjoy writing, reading, traveling (although I don't do much of it), and generally trying to force myself out of my comfort zone. I am an unabashed Potterhead (Ravenclaw). Matt's and my dream is to move to the PNW someday.
I taught 8th grade ELA for seven years before coming out of the classroom; I now work as a curriculum resource teacher (CRT). Basically that means I mentor teachers, support with lesson plans and resources, etc, full-time in my K-8 school. I also coach the girls' volleyball team and track & field.
When I was 11, I was diagnosed with Celiac. I eat an entirely gluten free diet, and I have for over 20 years. I also eat a mostly plant-based diet at home in a small effort to help the environment.
I strive to keep this blog positive and upbeat, but I also pride myself on keeping it real. Expect a little bit of everything here, from updates on my training to life in general. I hope you find something you like and stick around!
