MY BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENTS

After crushing my right foot and getting diagnosed with type 1 diabetes all within months of each other, I was told I would never run again...let alone run marathons. I refused to listen to the doctors and less than a year after surgery I ran my first half marathon and haven't looked back. Almost 5 years later, I've completed over 19 half marathons and a trail marathon. My "biggest achievement" is living with Type 1 diabetes - I should get a medal for that...so running with T1D is even more of an achievement! I might not be the fastest person in the race but I'm definitely one of the most determined! This Summer I decided to go for something even crazier than a marathon...running 42 miles (or more) in 24 hours in my favorite race - Spitfire Scramble, a 24 hour trail relay. #fingerscrossed
