About

After graduating college I had no idea wanted to do with my life. I had this extreme urge to find my purpose but at the same time I felt lost. With the fear of one day, waking up and living a life I hated, I made the decision to hit the road. One experience to the next has lead me to a wonderful life doing what I love. A life I am completely happy and proud of. It wasn’t the smoothest of journeys, but I’ve learned so much along the way.

My goal is to simply inspire you to live fully by doing what you love. I know running isn’t for everyone but I hope my story will get you excited about following your dreams and passions. I won’t bore you with the details of my training plan. How far I ran one day and at what pace. This is more about my journey along the way of finding and pursuing what I love to do.

Start from the beginning here: New Beginning
Enjoy!

    You’re a really good writer. I need to read more, but did running help you get the confidence to actually live the life you wanted? If so, I can totally relate. Its why I started blogging. My first two entries are about how it changes you from the inside as well as outside. I look forward to reading more.

      I would say initially, no. I wasn’t running at all when I went to Spain and when I first took off out west. As the story goes on, I’ll explain more, but I think at first the urge to actually live had to do with me being not happy with where I was in life. But once running took over, it put a new confidence and taste for life.

      Thanks! Yeah I agree. Most running blogs get caught up with intervals, splits and results. Only a select few really want to read about that stuff. What really matters is the journey and the lessons learned along the way.

    Hey Joey,

    I just realized your blog title is actually road to “a” 100. Even cooler than initially thought! I contemplated naming mine Road to 100, as in age, but I want to be 110 so that just wouldn’t work πŸ˜‰ lol

    Great motivation you have! Keep running πŸ™‚

        I recently finished Med School, and now what it’s expected of me is to start working in some Hospital or Clinic and make a living out of it, but I don’t want to do that. I don’t want to spend the rest of my life trapped in here… I want to travel, I want to get to know other people and cultures. I’m thinking maybe volunteering abroad. Some say it’s crazy but it’s what I want to do.

        I recently read somewhere that the people that think you’re crazy say that because they gave up on their dreams. Deep down they don’t want you to go for yours. I say go for it! Maybe teach abroad or volunteer. What better time is there than now? And you won’t get this opportunity again once you do have children or are tied to more responsibilities.

    Great blog, and I feel exactly the same! I am a twenty year old gal cycling around the world, following my passions, and trying to inspire others to do the same. It is amazing how much happiness just doing what you love can bring, and what doors open from there. Maybe someday I too will be running one of these races in a few years, definitely something they interests me!
