Welcome to my blog! I have a huge passion for running and fitness. I've been following running and fitness blogs for a year now, and I'm so full of thoughts, I decided it's time to tell my story. I love all things running, and could talk about it all day. I'll spare you CONSTANT running talk... I love cycling and other group fitness, and I'm exploring the food world. Don't expect tons of amazing recipes or gorgeous looking food from me just yet. But I hope to get there.

I ran my FIRST race ever, a 5K in June 2011. I never ran in high school. As a matter of fact, I hated it. Ironic.
2013 was supposed to be the year of the marathon. I was completely trained, all ready to rock, and two and a half weeks out ended up with a hip injury. I ended up knocking out a new half marathon PR that fall, and more motivation than ever to run my marathon.
May 3, 2014, I finished my FIRST marathon in 3:48:29. I achieved my goal, and crossing that finish line was the greatest moment of my life. Literally. My boyfriend was waiting at the finish line on one knee...
I can't wait to plan our wedding and start our married life together!! Oh yeah, and run a few more marathons here and there!
