Hi, and welcome! I'm Heather, a 28 year old collegiate volleyball player turned runner when looking for a way to stay active after graduation. My journey started when I signed up for the Rite Aid Cleveland Half Marathon in January of 2013, knowing that it would be a way to keep me active and fit during the last semester of college. After running that race, I fell in love with the sport and signed up for another half and then another, and then a full, and now I'm looking for that elusive BQ. Fitness and running and healthy eating have become a regular part of my life now and as a result, I have lost over 60lbs on this journey. I have wanted to create this blog for a long time to share my experiences, tips, and advice, about running, fitness, health, recipes, etc. and to hear from others!
