This build up is going to be different. I will give my body the full time and care it deserves and enjoy the process. I also will start sharing more of my journey – being open on social media will help keep me accountable to both myself and the running community. This summer I have gotten to know the local, NYC running scene more and realize how helpful it is to be apart of an open running community, where we share with each other the ups and downs of the journey.
