About Me

Welcome to my Life In The Run! 

I'm Kate, and I'm a fan of all things fitness. I began a life long love affair with running over three years ago, and it has changed my life in so many positive ways. I've ran several half marathons and am currently training for my first full marathon taking place in April, 2015. I hope you enjoy reading about my workouts, food finds, and daily happenings. 

Start line of my 4th Half - 3/15/14

I didn't always enjoy working out. I spent the majority of my young life out of shape, and in the winter of 2011, I hit my highest weight and lowest point...

I knew it was time for a change, so I started working out. I began by running a few days a week and in August of 2011, I ran my first 5k, then my first 10k, then in October of 2011, my first Half Marathon. And the rest is history…

My first 10K - 9/10/11

1st Half Marathon - October, 2011

2nd Half and PR 2:05:37 - 5/6/12

3rd Half Marathon - October, 2013

I strive for balance in my life, so when I'm not running, I cross train with yoga, the elliptical and spinning...

And as much as I love working out, I love food more. I didn't really start seeing changes with my body until I learned how to control portions. I now follow the 80/20 rule. I eat healthy 80% of the time and not so healthy 20% of the time. And that's a-okay.

Mostly healthy 
Sometimes not

I hope you enjoy reading! Let's motivate each other to be better than yesterday and reach our goals tomorrow.
