"At age 30, I was going through a divorce and realized how unhappy I truly was, weighing in at my all-time highest weight of 215 pounds. I had an enlightened moment when I realized that I could do things that I enjoyed doing to work out, such as hiking outside in nature. Then I thought, what the heck, why not try running?
My biggest hurdle was believing in myself. I first learned to love myself, realized that I needed to take small steps, because they lead to bigger steps."
