My name is Talia, I am 29, a New Yorker and I love life. I live by the ocean along with my husband, our pug mix, and lupus. I do not love lupus.
When I was sixteen I was diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), an autoimmune disease. There have been ups and downs in my health in which I denied the existence of the disease for a long time, refusing to fully acknowledge that I needed to be responsible for my health.
How can it be that I have lupus? I look healthy. They must have it all wrong.
In May of 2013, I decided to claim responsibility for my health after a flare. This blog was created with the intent to share my journey to become a stronger version of my weaker self. Both physically and mentally.
As I set out to see if I could rebuild myself, 52 miles per month represented my running goals- could I complete 52 miles each month? I found out that I could. Gradually I made running, yoga, and living a healthier lifestyle my prerogative. Sometimes I’m uber successful, other times I fail in my endeavors.
Though this blog was initially about running, it has evolved as I have grown. I am full of opinions and have a propensity to share them.
Thanks for stopping by 🙂
Much love, Talia
