THE STORY:

Hey folks, Erin here. I'm a 22-year-old PhD student in condensed matter physics at Pitt. Aside from physics, I run, read, knit, drink coffee, plot the downfall of global capitalism and play with my cats.

Throughout my adolescence, I struggled with disordered eating and overexercise. After years of hiding it, my disease culminated during my sophomore year in college. As I was training for the Boston marathon (and still quite sick), I fractured my hip due to the weakness in my bones caused by years of Bulimia. Thanks to the resources and endless love available to me, I eventually got better. Not everyone struggling with an eating disorder has the resources I had.

Read more about my story here if you'd like: http://bcgavel.com/2015/03/23/authentic-eagles-erin-sutton-on-eating-disorders/

Years later, I'm healthy and determined to do something about these ubiquitous, destructive diseases- from helping support someone's recovery to ending the stigma surrounding eating disorders. If you are able, please consider donating to my run for the Emily Program Foundation to show those struggling with eating disorders that they are loved, and that it DOES get better. Thank you thank you!

If you donate to my run, I'll write your name on my marathon tshirt and you can pick any song in the world for my marathon Spotify playlist!
