“EVERY MORNING IN AFRICA, A GAZELLE WAKES UP, IT KNOWS IT MUST OUTRUN THE FASTEST LION OR IT WILL BE KILLED. EVERY MORNING IN AFRICA, A LION WAKES UP. IT KNOWS IT MUST RUN FASTER THAN THE SLOWEST GAZELLE, OR IT WILL STARVE. IT DOESN'T MATTER WHETHER YOU'RE THE LION OR A GAZELLE-WHEN THE SUN COMES UP, YOU'D BETTER BE RUNNING.”
― CHRISTOPHER MCDOUGALL, BORN TO RUN: A HIDDEN TRIBE, SUPERATHLETES, AND THE GREATEST RACE THE WORLD HAS NEVER SEEN
Confession: I'm just another runner chasing early morning sunrises, fueled by craft beer and novelty doughnuts. Most weekends, you can find me racing in Virginia, Maryland, or the District. I've run a ton of races -- road and trail -- from 5ks to marathons with my sights set on making another comeback. I hope you'll follow along my running journey which seems to be perpetually marred by injuries and derailed by puppy snuggles.
