I was never active growing up. Like ever. I never ran the mile during PE and it was never a thought! I took up running after college as a way to spend more time with my dad who is a long time runner- currently have 25+ marathons under my belt. Eventually I took up cycling with two century rides and then became an IronWoMan last year! And now- I work for a bike ride that supports cancer research! Crazy how things work out, but I have no complaints. I love staying active and love spreading the positive benefits of being active.
