I’m a former sponsored athlete (I'm still training, just unsponsored) writing stories about the harder and darker side of running that we usually don't talk about.

Running is a really great sport, but it's also very hard and can make people who are struggling feel very alone.

I'm writing stories that bring those struggles to light, so we can all feel less alone.
