paceofmind is an ongoing exploration of how running has and continues to enrich the relationship I have with myself and the places I’ve come to live. Running re-entered my life after a two-year hiatus. A former collegiate athlete (truthfully, more known for my endurance during “40Hands” than out on the track) one afternoon I made a decision that I wanted to regain control of my life and laced up my shoes. Years later I’m continually amazed at how running has given me peace of mind with each stride. no matter the workout might lay in front of me… every mile is a memory; every stride a steady pace towards my future.
paceofmindwas an idea originally developed while I was living in San Francisco, working for an all female running company. Making a living through a hobby was a dream come true, until a much grander dream, one that I poured years of schooling into, to become a curator, outweighed my desire to live in the best city in the country. On February 5th I received the call I had been waiting for; I landed my dream job as the Operations Manager for Bucknell University’s TWO art galleries… a job that has brought me 3,000 miles out of my comfort.
