So half marathon number 8 has been completed. I have my 3rd OUC Half marathon under my belt. I had not been well enough to train so I wasn’t expecting much out of this race. Boy I was wrong… I usually have a pre-race routine the night before a race. I will lay out my gear, and everything I will need for the race. The morning of, … Continue reading Run Orlando

I love helping and motivating others. I constantly share my story to show others that ANYTHING is possible. It may not be easy and you might have to give it many tries…but it can happen. Did I ever think that I would be up and running again? No. I stopped running for many, many, years! Let me tell you, the first year back running was … Continue reading RunHaven story of inspirational triumph
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. Every time I went, I ended up … Continue reading It’s just the beginning..

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
I am excited on how busy my race schedule for 2015 is shaping up to be! Since being accepted into the TCS New York City Marathon, I’ve had to switch gears a bit. I will have to do most of my training in the Summer heat which I am not looking forward to, but I’ll take it. Luckily I have a treadmill where I can … Continue reading Track Shack’s Winter park Road race!
What does the word “impossible” mean to you? For me it means a challenge that I gladly accept. Almost my whole life, many have told me that what I do is impossible. There is no way that someone with the severity of my Scoliosis can not be a runner, much less a marathoner. Having Scoliosis from a very early age did change how I saw … Continue reading Impossible is nothing.
