Quotes:

“I never used to like running. That the funny thing.... but I used running as an escapism... as a way to fight my demons” 

“I struggled really bad with my mental health... and I was turning to drugs to help cope with my pain... and then running came into my life... this changed everything” 

“You always have this little person in your head and when you learn how to push past it, you can adopt this mindset to move through self-doubt to any obstacles that you come across” 

“I think that when you are in a tough place you naturally gravitate yourself towards mentors and people who you feel lift yourself up... as much as you can keep going towards that light... its going to change your life... because one day you might just become it” 

“I think that it is often hard to ask for help but its so important... like how are we going to get better without seeking out people who can help us... it just doesn’t make sense but hey thats why the stigma is so powerful when it comes to our mental health”
