I'm so excited to announce our first featured blogger! If you don't know Lisa, you should. As a running coach, she's motivational, as a mom, she's inspiring and as a person, she's just plain awesome. Oh and did I mention she's a fellow FFA and Oiselle Team member?!
My husband and I have been married for 8 years and have three children, two of which are twins. He's a US Navy Diver and my official marathon and blogger support person, so basically I would not be very interesting without him, kidding of course, but seriously an amazing man.
Outside of fitness, what are your favorite things to do?
My favorite things to do outside of fitness are to go for a hikes with my kids, spend time with and doing thing for my friends and, to be creative, things like cooking and making crafts with my children, I find a huge satisfaction in creating something.
What TV show are you embarrassed about watching?I am more embarrassed that we don't have TV. We just find it a waste of money that we don't have, I don't miss it one bit. Maybe a wee bit.
How long have you been blogging?
I have been blogging since 2008 but really became serious in November of 2011
Previous to RunWiki my blogs name was Eating Off the Floor, because when you have three small children you not only don't have time to feed yourself, you're cleaning an abundance of food off the floor. I found that most of my nourishment came from there. RunWiki was a name that came to me on a run, Wiki means “fast” in Hawaiian. I was living in VA. And missing the warm weather dreaming of a Hawaiian running vacation, and so RunWiki it was.
Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging more like a journal, it is still one of the main reasons I blog. I just need to get out my angst with regard to running and life. The down side to this is, my readers might think I am always dreamy , dark and emo, when in reality this is only one small part of me. I have a good sense of humor and happy most of the time, I feel compelled to write when I'm down, I've had a journal since I could write and when I look back them I seem so depressed, but really it's just a way for me to purge. I never write in my blog unless I have an answer to the problems... nobody needs a Debbie Downer.
What are your fitness goals for 2013?
My fitness goals for 2013 are to PR in the marathon this April in Boston, to run my first 50 miler and to run a few relay's.
What fitness related achievement are you most proud of?
Fitness related achievement I am most proud of is by far finishing my first ultra marathon in June 2012, qualifying for Boston would be a close second
What is your “go to” comfort food right now?
My go to comfort food changes, but right now it's Trader Joe's Chocolate dipped Almond Horns cookies with a big ice cold glass of Silk Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk, my mouth is watering as I type the words. It's a love/hate relationship.
