My Fitness Journey
I began running in races about 4 years ago. I always loved running and working out, but never really looked into the competitive side of it until one of my good friends competed in her first triathlon. I was so excited for her and after hearing all about her training, I just had to compete in one too! Since then, I continue to look for new races to challenge myself. I have completed a triathlon, several 5k’s, one 10k, two 15k’s and one half marathon. Another goal of mine is to travel somewhere beautiful and compete in a race there. Not sure where that is going to be though!
Here are some links to post about some of my past races:

Dirty Girl Mud Run/ Obstacle Race
On my list of must complete races has always been a mud run/ obstacle race. I finally completed my very first one on November 23, 2013 and had such a blast at this women only event. It was so much fun and only got me amped up for more!
Check out the links below for my blog posts on the event and an event video that I created and posted to my YouTube Channel!

Definitely one of my favorite forms of fitness! Not only is it extremely fun, but I don’t think my arms and back have ever been so toned! Read more about my experiences with Pole Dance Fitness below!

30 Day Ab Challenge
My main concern after delivering my baby girl, was my tummy getting back into pre-pregnancy shape. I didn’t know what to expect or how easy or hard it would be, but I was determined to get myself back where I wanted to be. I found a great 30 Day Ab Challenge on a fitness blog I was reading, and decided that committing myself to 30 days of Ab focused workout routines would be perfect to help me achieve my goal! The results were amazing and I not only felt stronger, but saw a noticeable amount of definition!
