Interesting Story
Qualifying and training for the Olympic trials has been a major test for me. I work full time in an office and was also in school for my masters degree when I qualified. Balancing my time among work, my relationship, buying a home, finishing school, other responsibilities and running has pushed me more than I ever thought possible and I’m honestly so proud of the person it forced me to become!
