I run for my health and for my Uncle James, who's battling lung cancer. He's been so strong through his battle, encouraging me to step strong through the next level of races.

I got into running during the lowest part of my life, when I didn't like how I felt or looked. I couldn't afford therapy for depression and anxiety, so I decided I'd try a more personal method of therapy. I was the kid who could never run a mile straight in high school, but I began to build up to one mile, then two, then three, then ten... I began realizing that the more I was able to push myself towards the next stop sign or mile, the more I felt positive and at peace with where I was in life.
