Why I Became a Worth Living Ambassador

I had been searching, over the past few years, for an organization that I could lend my voice to when it came to mental illness awareness. I had contemplated many, and given my voice to certain campaigns, but something was lacking for me.  The ups and downs with conversation about awareness started to wear me …

Contemplating 2018

  So as I sit and mellow out for the next little while, I am contemplating my "plan" for 2018. 2017 has been a weird roller coaster ride.  Running, injuries, body imbalances, Mom and TeenThing madness and general chaos. I have given myself some time off from running, as I needed to work on a …
