"I’ve also learned the importance of listening to my doctors, coaches and support crew. I wanted to end this piece by thanking all those who helped me, are helping me, and will continue to support me in this running journey. I am grateful to my surgeon, Dr. Lynch, my PT, Vikash Sharma, my coach, John Henwood, my nutritionist, Lindsey Elizabeth Cortes, my boyfriend, Jake, and all of my family, friends, running buddies, and coworkers".
