How I Met My Future Husband
Running Myself Together

I can’t believe I finally get to write this story. I’ve been holding onto it (and living it) for quite some time now, and it’s amazing to actually put words to paper. Back in June, my now future sister in law asked if/when I was going to share how I met my then boyfriend. I told her, “Not until we get engaged.” I had shared about past relationships multiple times on this platform over the years, and it was always a hassle to have to delete everything (even though it was part of my story) once that relationship ended. Plus, I realized that not every relationship was destined for marriage (yes ..read more

This Year Has Been One Major Life Update

It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog post. A lot, and I mean A LOT, has been happening in my life recently. It is all beautiful and good, but I’ve had to put RunningMyselfTogether to the side a bit as I navigate all of these life changes. Taking some time away has been nice, because now I really miss writing and creating new things. So, any burnout or exhaustion is gone. But I’m trusting that this is where God has me for a reason and that once things settle down a bit, I’ll be able to dive headfirst back into this wonderful work and continue to grow this ministry. I’m writing this post ..read more

Doing the hard thing often leads to better things

I read a Jordan Peterson quote today that encapsulates everything I’ve been experiencing in my life recently.  “Leaving everything hidden in the fog because you are afraid of the danger you may find there will be of little help when fate forces you to run headlong toward what you refused to see.” Read that quote again. Let it sit with you for a minute. Don’t worry, I’ll do it too, with you. Did you feel that gut punch too? I did. Recently, I had to “run headlong toward what [I] refused to see.” I ended a long term relationship – one that I thought was going to end in marriage. It wasn’t a ..read more

When Life Doesn’t Go As Planned… Again.
Running Myself Together

Man, I feel like I’ve written this same post time and time again. You know… the one where I divulge what part of my life didn’t go as I’d neatly planned. I guess it’s just one of those things that’ll take falling on my face many times to learn: life will not always go as I plan. 2020 was, admittedly, a hard year (for everyone). 2021, on the other hand, has been a tumultuous roller coaster where I’ve learned more about who I am, what I believe, and how I handle relationships and tough situations than I ever thought I would in a 1.5 month timespan. Basically, it’s forced me to reevaluate everyth ..read more

What Is The Women’s Intro to Running Plan?
Running Myself Together

COMING DECEMBER 28, 2020!! When I started running, I’ll be honest, I had no clue what I was doing. I just went out there and ran to my heart’s delight. I wasn’t consistent and I surely didn’t go fast. But I loved it. And it’s brought me to where I am now – a certified run coach and personal trainer helping other women fall in love with running while taking care of their minds, bodies, and souls. If you want to start running, but just aren’t sure how, I have a plan for you. No, really. Like an actual plan that you can use that’ll help you start from ground zero and intentionally bring you up t ..read more

Is There Joy in 2020?
Running Myself Together

I’m currently sitting in my childhood bedroom, wrapped cozily in my old high school sweatshirt. It’s quiet here, and the quiet is partly why I love coming home. I can breathe. I don’t have to rush from place to place, making sure I have all my ducks in a row. I read. I relax. I laugh.  The other part is that, well, it’s quiet here, and sometimes that quiet creeps in and awakens parts of my mind that I was pushing silent in the busyness. I’m forced to sit in the uncomfortableness and address these little parts of me that I’ve blatantly ignored. They’re not all bad, of course. It’s easy to ..read more

If you’ve been here a while (and some info for you if you’re new), you know this blog started and continues to pioneer mental health awareness. It’s kind of my thing, you know? If you’ve been here for a while, you also know that I strongly believe in advocating for your own health – mentally and physically. Little did I know, though, that when I would start opening up about my struggles with chronic acid reflux (aka GERD), I’d find so many of YOU who also struggle with this. And let me tell you, the struggle is real. So, if you’re one of those people who struggles with acid reflux, I know your ..read more

One Mom’s Journey From Anxiety to Peace and Running

Years ago, over here on this blog, I used to share stories of other runners from all walks of life (check them out!). Well, I want to pick that back up again. I think hearing stories of encouragement are exactly what we need right now. Today, I introduce to you Jenay Franco. She’s a mother of 4 who found peace and relief from anxiety and postpartum depression when she started running. And, friends, she’s amazing. In full transparency, she is one of my running clients. A piece of my running programs are designed to help women achieve goals outside of running. For Jenay, it was her call from the ..read more

I originally wrote this piece as a LinkedIn blog post, which can be found here. But, of course, I thought you all would find it helpful, as well. Be sure to comment and let me know your thoughts! An Open Letter to Those Struggling with Their Mental Health at Work Right Now You’re not alone.  You’re not a bad employee. You’re not destined to fail. And it’s not your fault.
