I’m a city girl at heart that has fallen in love with running and the running community. I’ve grown up in the suburbs of Pittsburgh and I love everything about the steel city! Growing up, I was very involved with athletics and sports teams. I was even on the track team despite the fact that I couldn’t fathom running more than a mile straight (I specialized in jumping events and hurdles). It wasn’t until 2013 that I finally fell in love with running. You could say that I’ve been hooked ever since my first race!
Professionally, I am trained in the health sciences as a Nurse and formerly as an Athletic Trainer. In addition to my degrees, I am certified as a level 1 running coach through the RRCA (Road Runners of America Club) and I hold a Performance Enhancement Specialization Certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). My goal with my blog is to share my love of running along with fitness tips, race recaps, and motivation.
