Meghan has been athletic most of her life, but it wasn’t until 2012, when she picked up the book Run like a Mother, that she was inspired her to run her first marathon. No stranger to running at that point, Meghan had already completed several 5Ks. The book, however, was the perfect inspiration to elevate a journey that started when two things in her life came together: running and motherhood.
After her son was born, Meghan suffered from post-partum depression. In an effort to avoid medication, Meghan battled her depression by taking her newborn out for walks. With the help of a jogger stroller, the walks turned into runs. The runs gradually increased in distance, beyond even the 5Ks that Meghan was used to.
