Hi everyone! Thank you so much for visiting my page! While I first began Run.It.Off, it was an excuse to justify my love of food and delicious treats! After all, the more you take in, the more you need to burn - and what better way to do that then running! Running was not always my favorite past time though. In fact, it was quite the opposite. I dreaded it! Back in high school and college, I was an avid soccer player, and only ran to keep in shape for soccer. Well, after three knee surgeries later (two ACL repairs and one meniscal repair - all on the same knee!) my doctor finally told me I could not play soccer anymore. In fact, he said I really should refrain from participating in physical exercise that involved any lateral movement because my knee was so worn down, I was at an extremely high risk of tearing something again.
Running the San Diego Marathon with my entire family 5 days before my wedding and getting my fastest marathon time yet!

June 26, 2019... Here we go again!
Half Marathon: 1:33:23
Don't restrict yourself, enjoy life but stay balanced. If you intake more, make sure you burn off more!
Needless to say, it was at this point that #RunItOff was born, and the rest is history.
At least it was until November 10, 2017 at the Disneyland Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon... After 13 miles of feeling strong with zero ailments while racing, I was about to get my half marathon PR when the unthinkable happened again - I blew out my knee and tore my ACL again! While I did achieve my PR, my knee would never be the same unless I went through surgery again.
Fortunately I had been able to complete 4 marathons without my ACL - The LA Marathon, The China Marathon, The Utah Valley Marathon AND the Boston Marathon - but in June 2019, it was time to get my knee fixed.
So while running is still my passion, I will have to refrain from running until my knee fully recovers. So these next 6 months while I am rehabing, I will be focusing on strength training and proper(-ish) nutrition.
Don't worry though, I will be back :) and God willing stronger than ever!
