"The aftermath of leaving my abusive husband and trying to forge ahead in life has been painfully difficult. It is overwhelming to try and imagine what my future might hold. One of the ways that I have regained my life is through running. I first read about Elizabeth when I was training for the Portland Marathon. She was featured in the race publication. I began following her story online and have found inspiration in the way that she continues to speak out against domestic violence, speaks up for survivors and continues to care for herself. Her story has made my next steps in life feel more realistic and tangible."

"Many of the times I thought I was crazy when I felt so kicked in the stomach and bordering suicidal I'd read an article you shared mental and emotional abuse. The first time I saw it I had chills. I realized all the things in the list were happening to me. I cried and cried because at last I knew I wasn't wrong." - From Gail in Colorado Springs, CO
