I am an architectural designer and an avid runner. I started my running back in 2016 with the goal of losing weight after graduating from architecture school. My first race was a 10K in 2018 when a friend asked me to join her. I said I would never run another race but signed up for a half marathon soon after. Eventually got hooked, and last year, I was suppose to run both Chicago and NYC marathons but ended up running them solo and virtually around a half mile loop. My goal is to run my first live marathon, set to happen this upcoming October. I really enjoy running and it makes me feel free and happy!
