I never knew how to answer that interview question, “Tell me about yourself.”  Similarly, when I started this blog (along with my previous attempts at blogging), I was stumped.  How do I share enough so you know me, yet not too much?  How do I condense “me” into a couple paragraphs?

I guess you could say that I am under construction (though, aren’t we all?).  I’m always working on something, and, since this blog is kind of about my life, there will be a lot of variety here.  I’m in graduate school.  I’m also a wife, a sister, a daughter, and a puppy mama (for two adorable pups!).  And, I’m an amateur photographer (a hobbyist, really), and always working on my cooking/baking skills.

I’m also working on becoming a healthier person.  This includes healthy foods and exercise (I’ve lost over 60 pounds!), but also the stuff that we don’t really talk about – self-care, getting enough sleep, etc.

I am a runner – albeit a SLOW one.  I’m probably never going to win any age group medals or qualify for a major race (like the Boston Marathon).  But I still try to think of myself as a runner.  For me, running is meditative.  It is relaxing, and a chance to be at peace with myself.  It also helps me gain perspective when life gets overwhelming.

I’m also pretty excited about heavy weight-lifting, and prefer powerlifting to bodypart splits.  I work out at a pretty intense gym, and I love being (usually) the only woman in the room.  Being strong is empowering, and it helps my running!

I’m sure the direction of this blog will shift from time-to-time, as my life is generally in transition.  But, the core will remain the same – things that excite me, things I’m working on, things that make me happy, and my progress on the roads and in the gym.

Thanks for stopping by!
