I feel my story is unique because I am not a typical runner. I used running to quit a 20-year smoking addiction. While still a quitter, I am trying so hard not to be a quitter with running!
In the beginning of my blog, I get real about the constant battle I face with bad habits while trying to maintain a commitment to fitness. I still have my fitness ups and downs and my relationship with running is a love – hate one.
Now that I have four years of running under my belt, I am taking fitness to the next level by incorporating more focus on what I am eating along with keeping an active lifestyle. As a vegan committed to more whole food eating sans gluten, alcohol, sugars (refined & artificial) and processed foods, I am a proud urban gardener (living in both Detroit and Brooklyn). I like to make everything I eat which means I must constantly plan ahead. Feel free to check out my recipes and videos on my Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/vegetabletable.
When I am not busy being an anti-fitness fitness-fanatic, I am wife to my best friend, mother of three beautiful daughters and many many pets.
The reason I blog is two-fold: Blogging adds a layer of social accountability for me which keeps me committed to better health but moreover, I hope to inspire others who struggle with fitness, like me. I like to say that if I can do fitness, anyone can do fitness. I hope you will join me!
