I am a small town girl from East Tennessee working my way towards a healthier lifestyle one run at a time. This May I will be a college graduate and will then start graduate school to get my masters degree in English Education. I've completed 11 half marathons to date in addition to multiple 5ks and 10ks. Running is something that has really pushed me out of my comfort zone and tested my willpower. It has given me confidence and something to look forward to as well as weight loss. I also started a blog to share my fitness journey: http://thegogirlblog.com/ Oprah had it right when she said "Running is the greatest metaphor for life, because you get out of it what you put into it".
