While I was finishing up my PhD, I embarked on a new challenge: running. Though I’m admittedly a newbie at running, the challenge helped me both mentally and physically. I had a set-back right before graduation with a foot injury, but I kept at it with walking and running intervals. I decided to mark the occasion by participating in the Star Wars 5K this month with my son and my brother. It was admittedly a blast!
Aside from my mental disabilities scholarship and wellness writings, you will also be seeing a lot more of my writing focused on newbie running and how it’s helped my own mental health. Stay tuned!
