Guest Bio

Dominique has always been a runner. Running has intertwined itself in her life at various stages. Growing up she used running as a way to escape her home environment. She used to run and walk between towns trying to make sense of why things shook out the way they did for me. In her older years running was her way of maintaining an unhealthy view of what she thought her body should be. The beautiful chapter of her run journey began the moment she decided she wanted to live. She started extending herself grace. The grace that she now tells everyone else to do for themselves. She discovered healing through therapy and running was a vital part of it.
She also has a website, a blog, and a podcast.
