I believe in compression! And I also believe that compression should be affordable (and fashionable!)—that’s why I love Tiux. This training season more than ever before, I’m going to be hyper-sensitive to my recovery and training safely. I’m currently recovering from a stress fracture in my hip and for the first time since I began running in 2009 I’m starting over from scratch!
Qualifying for Boston at CIM in 2016. My dad and I both qualified at this race which is completely representative of our running relationship! My dad started running at 57 years old after I dragged him on a long run with me…he promptly signed up for his first half marathon and now we run races together all the time! So, I’d definitely say bringing my dad into the #runlife is a major achievement of mine too!
Staying healthy in my recovery! I also want to run sub 3:30 at Boston.
Never forget WHY you’re running.
Listen to your body.
Recovery is just as important as the hard training days!
