Hi! Welcome to my blog! My name is Heather, I’m 36 years old (eek!), and living in Cleveland, OH. I’m a Diet Coke obsessed, marathon running triathlete, mom, & wife who enjoys exercise, cupcakes, and Marc Jacobs.
I started this blog as a way to document my very first marathon training. I also have a full time job, an 10 year old, a husband, 2 dogs, and a running team that I coach. It’s a delicate balance. I want to show people (you!) that there is a way to find balance in your life in order to make yourself happy, and the people who depend on you happy, too. I ran the Pittsburgh marathon on May 2nd, 2010 and wasn’t as happy with the experience as I thought I should be. I ended up running the Cleveland marathon on May 16th (two weeks later) and felt fantastic! It was everything I expected Pittsburgh to be, and am now proud to call myself a marathon runner. Of course, I am now addicted, and have run 3 more marathons since them. I am also currently the running coach for the Cleveland Liver Life Challenge team. I love helping others reach their running/walking goals and being a part of the Team – it’s been nothing short of life changing.
I am also completely passionate about healthy living and whole foods. In addition, I have a not so secret love for baking. I don’t have as much time for this as I’d like, but one day I will. Right now I’ll settle for my mom’s fantastic baking and my once in awhile homemade bread, cakes, and muffins:
So, join me in my journey in balancing my many “jobs”, in addition to my marathon training!
