First Blog Post and First Blog?!

January 1st, 2015. A lot of firsts for me today! I am officially publishing my first post, and I cannot begin to tell you all how excited I am to join the blogging family 🙂

But it looks hard, gosh does it look hard. How on earth will people find me under the thousands and thousands of other cool blogs? And I don’t have the money to just spend aimlessly to make my blog high-tech and super sophisticated.

However, with my fears aside, I know that I have a lot to share with you guys! I know that I can’t wait to share my workouts, motivation, recipes, and daily posts with you! I would love to be a trainer, so I hope to kind of live that through this if you all will let me 🙂

At the same time, not everything on my blog will be all fitness/nutrition either. Which is the point of my blog. I want to write about life and running. I might vent about being a junior in college and how poor I am; I might share really thought-provoking posts. I might share ideas that just popped in my head, and I wanted to get them on here. The point is, I have so much to say, and I can’t wait to begin!

Let the New Year ring; I am ready for 2015.

Some things you should know about me besides running:

I love dogs, well my whole family loves dogs.

This is Meeko! He's only 2 and follows me around constantly :) The puppies need sweaters because Illinois is a frozen tundra, and they are little dogs...we can't have them freezing!

This is Scout, the older of my two Yorkies. He is almost 4 years old and is rocking a cheetah sweater on the right.

 I love smoothies….a lot.

Pure fruit smoothies. Mango, strawberry, berry, banana, orange, anything!!! I have also been seriously asked if I am a fruititarian or not...

 I am kind of a transcendentalist.

Well, not necessarily. Because I am also too extroverted to be a true one. But I do love nature. You all will see this soon, but sometimes certain changes of the season or a pretty flower can make my whole day. Or beautiful sunrises like this on my run :)

I am a coffee lover through and through.

I'm a coffee lover!!! No I don't really drink it black....I just like this shot. I drink coffee typically at one point in my day every day, but during the semester, I easily drink coffee twice a day to keep me sane and focused :)

My fave is a grande (medium) Americano with 3 pumps of white mocha. It’s one pump less than the usual, and this drink keeps the bold flavor while still being sweet and savory!
