I started walking/ running as a way to escape the stress of dealing with school and my family life (I lost all 4 grandparents and my great-grandmother while I was in college and I didn't always know how to process my emotions over it, which lead to some rocky moments with my parents and friends). Amazingly, I have fallen in love with it. I'm also the first to admit that running gives me self-confidence I haven't had in a long time and has truly helped lessen my seasonal depression. I LOVE pushing my body to its limits and finding out what I'm capable of. Back in high school, I was a rower and I considered running a (painful) punishment. Now I don't know if I could go without it for long without losing my sanity ...
... hence the name of my little blog. I am always searching for a way of life that makes me happy (and sane). I don't know if I'll ever find it, or how I'll get there, or when, but I'm sure going to enjoy the journey!
