Hi, I’m Alyssa, and I’m currently a dietetics student at the University of Kentucky. Running is a huge passion of mine, and I hope to give you inspiration and motivation by sharing my thoughts, tips, and experiences with you.
Running has been a passion of mine close to 5 years now. I started running cross country at my high school sophomore year and haven’t stopped yet! I will have you know that I am NOT a fast runner. I may have ran competitively, but I was never very good at beating other people. I run because I love the way it makes me feel, and I want to be able to beat myself.
Since cross country ended my senior year, I started running longer distances with my parents. My first longer run was a 10K Thanksgiving race back in 2013, and now I’m training for my second half marathon! Below is a picture of my dad, stepmom, and me after the Flying Pig Half Marathon in 2014.
