4 Lessons Running Taught Me About Being a Leader


From being captain of my high school track and cross-country team to running 12 half marathons, and two full marathons, endurance training has been a part of my life since I was 15.

I even just signed up for my first-ever triathlon, something I never imagined I’d want to do—but that seemed like the perfect next step in pushing my boundaries.
