Commonly Asked Questions

Q. I see you write your name both Mae and May. Which is it?

My full name is Meagan but my nickname is Mae. I decided to name this blog “Ohh May” after for the month I planned to publish it in and as a play on my nickname.

Q. I see your posts go all the way back to January 2009, but I didn’t know you existed until May 2009. Why is this?

My blog was private for a long time (while I discovered if I could actually be committed enough to have my own.) My earlier posts are quite sporadic and were more like a journal for me than anything else. When I decided to go public, I actually started posting meaningful things! :-P

Q. Have you ever struggled with your eating?

I have IBS and it caused me to lose a lot of weight when it was at its worst. I was afraid of food for a while, not because of an eating disorder but because of how much pain it put me in. I learned to control it through diet, and am now back to a normal healthy weight.

Q. How did you handle the injury and the end to your running career?

First of all, I hope its not the end… I’m not going to lie, I didn’t handle it well. I was depressed and upset for a long time. My team needed me and it was so painful to sit back and watch my records break. I really try to stay positive and I’m much better with it now, but losing my passion and my stress outlet was one of the hardest things that’s happened to me.
