Trying to grow as a runner is overwhelming!  We learn, we train,  and we put the work in but sometimes it doesn’t end with the result you were looking for.  


Trust me, I feel you and I have been there.  Quite literally, I have been there the past 7 years working at this and I just ran my fastest half marathon at age 43 which was faster than anything I did in my late 30’s!  


In this episode, I share my journey to unlocking my fastest half marathon time in 7 years.  I’ll take you through the race recap, training process, nutrition, and mindset that helped me achieve this goal.


Throughout this episode, I share tips and tricks that worked for me in hopes of inspiring and helping fellow runners achieve their goals.  I summarize 5 key takeaways and lessons learned in how I broke through this plateau in my running journey so it can help you in your running journey.  So whether you are a seasoned runner or just starting, this episode is for you!  Join me as I share how I unlocked my fastest half marathon time in 7 years.
