About Me

I started this blog in 2013 when I took up running again and moved into events at LUNGevity Foundation. I used it as a way to hold myself accountable and to spread awareness and fundraise for Team LUNGevity. Five years, 6 marathons, a new job (and puppy) later, the blog (and I) have evolved a lot. Follow along as I navigate my job with American Cancer Society (still kicking cancer’s butt), figure out my new running goals (hello marathon free 2018) and attempt to cook my way through my pinterest board (because so much time now right?).

I’m a big fan of running, coffee, sarcasm, cheese and my dog Lola. 21557552_10200822779188892_2270318723844448525_n.jpg

  3. HI! Good luck on your first 26.2! Are you planning to run the Chicago Marathon? My last run was last year on my son’s birthday because after a 31 year running career I was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer. That cusk but I still workout once or twice daily/

      I’m so sorry to hear that! This experience has taught me to never take running for granted.

  4. Thanks for giving my new blog a look. Always nice to connect with other runners, especially those who run to support a cause. And I love Chicago (having lived in Milwaukee for 10 years), not to mention the Chicago Marathon (2009) was my favorite race ever.
