2016 Recap // 2017 Goals

2016 was a year of educating myself on nutrition, training and recovery.


Though I struggled with Plantar Fasciitis and Iliotibial Band Syndrome (ITBS) throughout the entire year, I was able to get in 4 awesome races and even one big PR!

  • Race 13.1 Wilmington
  • Tarheel 10 Miler/Fleet Feet 4 Miler
  • Across the Bay 12k
  • Bull City Race Fest Half Marathon

While being injured is never fun, it allowed me to focus more on nutrition and recovery.

For those of you who have followed my blog from start, you saw my journey of eating whole foods. For the first half of the year, I challenged myself to give up processed foods and it was surprisingly fun! I was constantly learning new recipes and becoming more familiar with new ingredients. Going into the new year, I want to continue to build on this challenge and incorporate these clean recipes into a balanced lifestyle.


2017 will be a year of challenging myself to reach new heights while also keeping my limits in check.. since I would rather not waste an entire year being injured again.
