Off-Day ActivityWalking- and chasing my three year old for hours. Yoga too.

I am a mother runner of two energetic boys, a 6 month old and a 3 year old. They are my favorite running partners and frequently join me on my runs, either in the double stroller for individually in a single stroller. I actually pushed my oldest son, Cameron, for a full marathon and we did it in about four and a half hours. This and completing the Mount Washington Road race are probably my two favorite running memories.

I started running about 5 years ago when I got an office job. Before then I'd never been active, and I love it. Now, I run, do yoga, and strength train. I have become so much more confident and truly believe in the power of moving your body.

I am currently nursing my 6-month-old, who has a dairy allergy. Finding a dairy-free way to fuel my body for long runs and as throughout the day due to breastfeeding hangriness has been phenomenal. I ate picky bars and granola, and pancakes, during my pregnancy as well, and love that it is something healthy I can share with my 3-year-old too.

When I'm not running or working, I can be found reading or listening to fantasy books, or with my husband at a local craft brewery (carb loading, amiright?). Being a mom has kind of taken over my life, but running helps me keep that ME part alive.

That being said, I LOVE that I am able to share it with my boys by taking them with me. I want to teach them from the start how important movement is, how important the outdoors is, and how important it is to challenge and believe in yourself. And I think I will.

I am also an ambassador for Her Tribe Athletics, a local woman-owned athletic clothing business. I am very passionate about supporting other women and helping them find their own strength, no matter where they are on their journey.
