Welcome to My Journey

“My ultimate goal is for people to take a few minutes a week to read my blog where I will hopefully entertain (maybe even inspire a bit) with the story of an everyday-girl-turned-marathon-runner while also using those few minutes to meaningfully increase people’s awareness of and response to women facing violence. I’m also hoping that you’ll be moved to donate to Interim Place, an organization near to my heart and one that provides critical services to women and children fleeing violence.”

Thanks for being part of this journey.
