I’m sure you’ve heard these statements before or maybe you’ve said something similar yourself.

Let's talk about culture

 

It’s one thing to be a runner, but it’s another thing to be a Black runner.

We have the magic, melanin, and motivation for success.

But we also have to deal with the stress, silent killers, and social injustices that come with being Black.

This blog will also be a place for information, advocacy, and an outlet on some of the things that we are dealing with in the Black community.

Hello Friends!

 I started running around the age of 12 when I found out that middle schoolers were allowed to run and compete in cross country with our feeder high school. 

My parents swore there was no way I’d make it running countless miles as a sport so I joined the team to prove them wrong! 

Fast forward over 10 years later and I have now ran 1 full marathon, a few half marathons, and countless 10Ks and 5Ks.

Aside from running, I work in public health and have a special interest in health disparities – meaning the differences in health and healthcare between population groups. 

These differences often limit the quality of healthcare they receive and their overall quality of life. 

My hope is that through this blog, I will inspire and empower you to not only start running but to live a healthier life and be a true role model to those around you.
