Eve runs her world

My first exposure to running started around the age of five. My grandmother would take me to the park with her in Brooklyn as she ran on the track. This is a picture of me waiting for her to finish. I can remember going to watch the NYC Marathon once as a child and being amazed by all of the runners.

It would take almost 25 years to bring me full circle back to running but I made it and I am happy that I did. The farthest that I had ever run is two miles on a physical fitness test in the Army but I was determined to change that in October of 2011. Two years later and here I am training to run the NYC Marathon. I’ve run three Marathons, over fifteen half-marathons, and a handful of 5 and 10k’s.

Running has been my therapy and has literally changed my life. I like to think that it’s all my legs and lungs but I know that my mental toughness has played a big factor.

It is hard balancing my Army career, raising three boys, being the best wife possible, and completing my education, all while training for a marathon. So far I have been able to do all of the above and keep my sanity! 🙂

Live Love Laugh

Run your world!
