What’s your primary workout?
Running! I try to mix it up with some cross-training but always prefer to run.

How long have you been working out?
I have been running for more than 15 years. I started running when I was in middle school
because I was a little overweight, and just never stopped.

How often do you work out?
I try to run at least four to five days a week and cross-train a few days a week as well.

What’s your favorite outfit to Sweat Pink in?
I LOVE wearing bright colors and interesting combos (much to my husband’s dismay). This outfit that I ran in during the Ragnar Relay is perhaps one of my favorites:

As you can see, I love sweating pink in the brightest pink possible!

What’s your favorite healthy snack and meal?
Just like your favorite five-year-old, my favorite healthy snack is animal crackers! I love them because they are a “healthier” carb and actually a good source of calcium. I recently had some dietary changes and have to cut down on fruits and vegetables, which used to be my go-to snack.

As for meal, one of my favorites now is to roast up some potatoes, chicken sausage and broccoli
and sauté in a skillet on the stove. I add in my favorite spices – like rosemary, garlic and freshly
ground pepper.

If you could have one cheat day where nothing counted against you, what would you eat and do?
I don’t know where to start! Just kidding. Actually I would probably have a few pieces of pepperoni pizza and follow up with some Blue Bell ice cream for dessert.

What is your biggest motivation to staying fit?
Staying fit isn’t just an appearance thing – you feel better when you are fitter. That’s my biggest motivation. I want to be the best version of myself for my husband, my family, my friends. Working out and running makes me that person.

Any advice for the beginners out there?
Stay with it! It’s hard at first, and it gets better. There’s a point you reach where you have an “ah ha!’ moment and realize that this is what everyone is talking about. That’s when you find yourpassion and your love… once you get to that point, there’s no turning back!

What’s your favorite thing about blogging?                                          I love all the amazing people I’ve been connected with and all the great advice I’ve received along the way. There would be no way that I would have ever ran a Ragnar Relay without the blogging community! I’ve been introduced to some amazing products – like PRO Compression, CLICK
Espresso Protein and Sparkly Soul – that I would never have found on my own.

How do you hope to inspire people?
I hope to inspire people to make fitness and health a priority in their life. It’s so easy to come out with excuses like “I don’t have time” or “I can’t afford that” and I just want to show people that no matter your fitness level or how busy you are, you can do it. Health and fitness needs to be a
priority in our lives, like brushing our teeth or washing our hair. I hope to inspire people to take the jump to make it a priority like that.
