After years of telling my children “you can do anything you set your mind to” I decided to put the old adage to the test myself. I had always wanted to be a writer, but had never submitted anything. Unbelievably, my first article was picked up by two publications. I am a regular contributor to http://www.Irongirl.com, The Streak – Annapolis Strider’s publication, and the Washington Running Report. I have also been published in the eNewsletters of FitPregnancy, TrailRunner Magazine and RunWashington.com. This month my essay, New Discoveries, appears in the Washington Running Report and I am Not Afraid appears in Trail Runner Magazine’s Inside Dirt eNewsletter. In the coming months keep an eye out for additional articles in Washington Running Report, The Streak, Irongirl, and The Florida Runner and Triathlete.
