Sweaty Notes: My Running Journey

If you told my younger self that I’d be running today, I would have frowned at you and said “Whatever”. If you told her that she’d be loving running, going for longer distances and faster paces, there would have been a lot of laughter, maybe even tears. A few years ago I was diagnosed with…
