Bio

I'm one half of the duo that started Fit-Ink.com where you'll find tips, race reports, reviews, fitness stories and more. If it gets you active, chances are we're writing about it. 

As for me, this Fit-Inker hails from Chicago by way of Michigan and New York. I haven't picked up an accent somewhere along the way, but I have grown weary of city life and yearn to one day move to the mountains. When freelance writing and editing duties don't have me glued to the computer, I'm tearing up the Windy City by foot, pedal or stroke, anything to stay active, moving and outdoors. Or you'll likely find me logging some quality gym time during winter hibernation. I'm also racking up the fitness certifications...in triathlon coaching, Spinning and yoga. Name the gear and I probably have it stashed in a closet--bikes, kiteboard (so it's not mine but my husband's), tennis racquets, snowshoes, skis, wetsuits--or it's on my wish list. And I'm big on endurance sports--I think I got hooked when I was managing editor of Windy City Sports magazine. As of this posting, I've run the Chicago Marathon 13 times, finished Ironman three times, and lost count on all the other triathlons and running races I've completed over the years....the picture is me at the finish line of the 2008 Ironman Wisconsin.
