About Paige

I am a runner, wife and mother of three. I've been running since I was a kid and had my first taste of victory when I beat all the boys (and girls) in my grade at a school run.

So, I try hard to find the balance between challenging myself with running, while still having lots of fun on the side.

3 Orthovisc injections later….
