A Northern-born gal with a southern heart, I currently reside in one of the many harbor-towns in southern Wisconsin. I have a habit of waxing poetical; constantly run late, and am a self-proclaimed crazy cat lady (and proud of it!).

For years I've had an on-and-off relationship with fitness and clean eating but that all changed in 2016. I started the year with a goal of loosing 40lbs. I counted calories and worked out several days a week and ended the year down 25lbs.

Everything really changed in 2017 when I completed my first half marathon, the Surf City Half Marathon in Huntington Beach California. That really cemented my love of running, and I also decided to go paleo around that time.

I'm currently training for my second half marathon in October, followed almost immediately by training for Surf City 2018. On my off days from running I love biking, weight lifting, kickboxing and begrudgingly practicing yoga.
