Not many people know this about me but I decided to join the running community when I was 14 years of age. I could walk or ride my bike for miles but could not run down one block without being out of breath. I also had an asthma pump and found running as child quite difficult and I was slow as hell… a baby could crawl faster than me running! 🏻‍♀️First week of high school, I decided to join the Curtis high school x-country and track-team. I had no clue how to run with proper form, bought shoes that were too big and got blisters, brought shoes that were too small and lost a few toenails… luckily they grew back! I had no clue how long to properly time my meals around workouts and got stomach aches, heartburn and headaches. I actually hated running the first two months but my INNER VOICE told me to stick with it and I intuitively knew it would be good for me. 🏻‍♀️Reflecting at USATF Nationals event over the weekend watching the best runners at their sport and thinking I spent over 22 years or more than half of my life dedicated to running. I want to thank all of my family, friends, coaches, teammates and runners who I helped coach and continue to coach for helping shape the woman I am today! 🏻‍♀️Thank you Equinox for the feature in Futhermore:https://furthermore.equinox.com/articles/2019/02/asics-runners-body-composition #usatf #running #runner #runcoach #curtishighschoolwarriors #huntercollegehawks #therunningschool #nycmarthon #precisionrunning #equinox #furthermore #wellnesscouture #wellnesscouturenyc #makeithappen 🏼
