Where Fitness and Fashion Meet!

This blog began simply because I was looking for something that was never found. A college sports blog by a woman, for women.

I have been running since September 2010. I never thought I could be a runner and now it's something I can't imagine living without! I will be running my first marathon in November 2011 and hope to pursue ultrarunning beyond that. My philosophy on life is that no day should be wasted. Life is too short! So whether you get out for a run, a walk, a bike ride, heck, even a swim, the important thing iis to get out there and see what you're made of! Everyday can be run day!...more
