"I'm 22 years old, and I've come a long way since I first set foot on the field to run over 11 years ago. What motivates me? Running is my sweet escape, I found that throughout the years it has become the best therapy, and not only that, it's exercise. Whenever I'm stressed or have too much going on, I take a break and go for a run to be at peace with my thoughts. Likewise, I wouldn't say that I run to lose weight, I run because at the end I feel good! There is no way to precisely explain it. I feel accomplished, happy, and fulfilled. If I don't run at least 2 to 3 times a week, I feel unproductive. I'm not sure, there is something about conquering your mind and pushing your body beyond its limit that attracts me to this sport."
