It’s hard to believe that while achieving so much success in running, I was also struggling with an eating disorder that eventually almost killed me. In fact, at one point I was lying in a hospital bed so sick that my doctors didn’t expect me to make it through the night.
This blog addresses more than running and my battle with anorexia nervosa, which ended my running career when I was in my early twenties. I started this blog in order to send the message that healing from an eating disorder can occur. I've written a manuscript which addresses the issues that led to my own eating struggles as well as how I was able to step onto a path of recovery. My hope is that through my writing, I will be able to reach others in need. Though my blog often contains unrelated and even off-beat topics, my intention in creating it is to remove the secrecy around an eating disorder and openly discuss what is often considered a taboo topic.
