My path to running started modestly. Like many runners, my vehicle was soccer. At a young age being on the field was exhilarating but I realized my ability suited better on the roads and track. When I joined the middle school cross country team, initially, it served as something social until I found myself eager to return the next day.
Transitioning to high school proved to be a wild ride. I didn’t hit my full stride until senior year, acquiring a checklist of accomplishments and fostering a positive attitude. I set Connecticut State records and even raced to my first National Championship in the 5k.
