I'm a 23 year old female college student, a vegan ultra runner, an abuse survivor and I struggle with depression, PTSD, self mutilation, suicidal tendencies and an eating disorder.
I have survived years of emotional, physical and sexual abuse, 4 suicide attempts and have been self-harming since I was 8 years old.
I took up running in January 2012 and have been running ever since. I ran my first half marathon at 3 months; my first ultra (50K) at 6 months; my first marathon at 9 months; attempted my first 50 miler at 9 months (mile 43) and attempted my first 100 miler at 16 months (mile 80).
