Christina and I first met a few years ago working for the same company. Since then, she has gotten married, created her blog, Run Life Eat Repeat, and started down a path of finding her best health. I have followed her journey (and delicious recipes) for the past few months, and am always inspired by her determination to find sanity and sustainability in her health goals. As her story aligns so well with my own philosophies on fitness, and food, I asked her if she would be willing to share her experiences...
I found my way into the world of fitness during my freshman or sophomore year of college. My love-hate relationship with dance had reached a peak (you can read more about that here), so I started searching for another venue to satisfy my need to move. While the emotional side of dance proved too tough, I did not want to walk away from consistent physical activity. I tried a number of options: running, intramural sports, even considered joining the women's club rugby team. This is an okay time for a brief pause and a little laughter for anyone who's met me; I love sports, but I truly believe I was born to watch them, not play them, and to this day, I avoid running at all costs.
Walking enthusiast, kitchen experimenter, sports lover (watching, not playing), and future world traveler.
