Hit the Bricks refers to my team slogan for when I run with my cousin/running buddy, Charlotte. As a former high school and college athlete, I had trouble in my early twenties figuring out how to exercise and be healthy without a sport to do so for. I realized I needed to amend my ways when I got older and my body started reacting differently to certain foods and a lack of exercise. A good friend convinced me to run one 5k and my running “career” was born. I’ve run multiple short races, a half marathon, and have my sights set on another half and even a full in the next few years.
The rest of my life is filled with eating well, my job working with teenagers, and having fun with my husband, family and friends. I try to lead by example and help the young women in my life to make smart, happy, and healthy decisions. This is where I will discuss my exercising (I do take breaks from races), running, healthy eating and other adventures.
