About Maria

You’re here because you need a dose of positivity. Maybe you’re feeling anxious or a little down. Maybe you struggle with body image issues or are entrapped in an abusive relationship. Whatever your reason for being here, you need something to pick you up, and what you’re going through, I can probably relate.

I know what it feels like to be you.

Finish LineThroughout high school and college, my best friend was my eating disorder. He followed me to every class and consumed every thought. I spent years in therapy, knowing deep down inside that letting him go was far less than alluring and even a bit scary.

You may know what that feels like.

As the years went on, in crept anxiety and depression, as it does for most perfectionists,
like myself.

But by the grace of God, and a little thing called running, I turned my life around. Now, I’m happy and living the fullest life I could ever be blessed to live.

And, I want to share that with you. There is hope. There is peace. And, there is happiness in this world.

Running saved my life, and it can safe yours too.

My first two posts, Why I Cried Before, During, and After My First Half Marathon (Part I)  and Why I Cried Before, During, and After My First Half Marathon (Part II), do a pretty decent job of explaining my journey and the reasoning behind this blog.

I’m so happy you’re here, and I can promise that step by step, little by little, you can find
peace and happiness in your life. Hopefully, this blog will serve as a safe-haven and an open window showing you the greatness that comes with accepting yourself, loving yourself, laughing, and running, of course.

Thanks for reading!



Half Marathon!
