Read, Run, Repeat

A tale of fitness, books, food, and life in between

About Me

Welcome to my little corner of the blogging world!! I’ve been an avid blog reader for about a year now, and I decided it was time to start my own 🙂 I’m a 30 year old upstate NY girl, and I live with my fiance, Pete – we are (finally) getting married in late September 2014! We also live with our  three  (spoiled rotten) “fur-babies” in our 97 year old house.  Fiona is our dog, and we have 2 cats,  Bella & Jackson. Pete and I have been together for almost 6 years; we have a lot of fun together and many crazy adventures — especially with all the animals that decide to make our yard their habitat! We’ve had opossums, bats, hawks, skunk, squirrels, chipmunks, moles, and a toad that we’ve named Jesus, since we will unexpectedly jump out of the grass, and we end up yelling “JESUS!”

 I currently work as a School Psychologist at a private school with children with Autism and developmental disablities. I mostly work with preschool kiddos, and my job can be challenging and rewarding all at the same time! I am extremely close with my family, and my younger brother has Down syndrome; he is the person who led my down my career path and has had an enormous impact on who I am.

I love to read, and exercise — especially running and strength training– and I am working on  eating purposefully and healthy. I ran track and cross-county all through high school , but an injury side-lined me for quite a while. My lifestyle change really started about 2 years ago when my co-workers decided to start a “Biggest Loser” challenge; I started off just wanting to drop some unwanted pounds, but then I realized how much better and happier I was feeling as my lifestyle became healthier 🙂

I love flip flops, peanut butter, the NY Yankees, anything blue, and having painted toenails. I eat a banana every day.  You should also know that I am a self-proclaimed coffee addict and perfectionist. I love lists, charts, and bullet points and procrastinating gives me anxiety! Thunderstorms, basking in the sun with a book, new shoes, and margaritas make me happy 🙂

I welcome you into my world as I blog about my life’s adventures! Thanks for stopping by!

My usual suspects 🙂

Here is Pete and I!
