My transition into a runner (a title I still feel weird using) started with running a 5k every summer with my best friend. Each spring I would start training, build up to three miles, run the race, and then call it quits until the following spring. In 2011, tired of restarting year after year, I decided to start building a running base that would keep me going beyond one 5k per year. I spent the next two years building up from 3 mile runs to running my first half marathon in 2013.
