Hi there. Thanks for visiting! I’m so glad you are here.
I grew up, and still live, in Pittsburgh, PA. I love all things Steeler and Penguin related! I graduated from Slippery Rock University with a degree in Elementary Education and Special Education. While I don’t have a permanent teaching job yet, I do stay busy by subbing every day.
Fitness began throughout college when it became the only time I truly felt like myself. Since I began running, I ran two half marathons, one marathon relay, one 10 mile race, and numerous 5ks and other distances. There is no better feeling than finishing up a run. I am also a Group Fitness Instructor, certified through AFAA. I love motivating others and seeing them work out and push themselves.
During the summer months, you can see me on the water behind our boat doing numerous activities. The boat is my happy place, and I can just relax when I’m down there. In the winter, I am either hiding from the brutal cold weather, or skiing down the mountains.
I married my best friend, Aaron, in July, 2013. We have been together for 9 1/2 years total, and no one makes me as happy as he does.
We also adopted our cute little Benson a couple months after we got married. He’s a little rascal who thinks he’s a dog, but isn’t so much.
A few other people I talk about:
My Mom: She’s my rock. I talk to her at least once a day, but more often than not, I’m always texting her. I love hanging out with her, and she joins me on my runs. Fitness is a bit part of her life, too.
My Dad: I’m such a daddy’s girl. I love hanging out with him, and getting ice cream from our favorite spot.
Matt: He’s my older brother who I look up to and have a great relationship with.
Niko: Niko is Matt’s Shiba Inu who is fabulous and just a really cool dog, said by me who usually hates dogs.
Myste: Myste was basically my cat when I lived at home. She loved me the most, but she stayed with my parents when I moved out.
