Just remember that you are strong enough to do anything … Continue reading Find a way, not an excuse.
Last week was the first week in a while that I stopped going to physical therapy. It seemed that each time I went, it was doing more harm than good. I am aware that I am very unique and simple, traditional forms of therapy won’t work. Unfortunately, after much discussion, it seemed best that I no longer go.

So the first few days on the medicines all I did was sleep. Had trouble sleeping at night though because the pain would kick in. I still spent a lot of … Continue reading I can, I will.

Doing races is so exciting! I love everything that comes with it. From the butterflies in my stomach, to getting tired in the race, to crossing the finish line. So many things come along with deciding to race! I almost always post on instagram and twitter each time I run. Many of my personal friends on FB get tired or annoyed that I post it every single time. But … Continue reading The Scoliosis Runner
