Eating Disorders, Running, & Period Loss

When I was in high school, I was recruited by dozens of college cross county and track programs. This was a strange experience, and sort of an ego-boost. Because of my burgeoning eating disorder, I often isolated myself in the name of "being best." I thought that if I trained hard enough, or dieted enough, I would be fast enough to earn a scholarship.
