Hi and welcome to my little corner of the Internet! My name is Jess, and I’m a twenty-something currently living in Washington, D.C. I’m a runner, rec league sports all-star, and lover of all things food, fitness and fun!
I love training for races of all different distances, although the half marathon is my favorite, and I’m border-line obsessed with my many rec league softball teams. (I also play flag football and volleyball).
Aside from running and my rec league sports, I’m a huge fan of the University of Maryland Terrapins.
I graduated from UMD in December 2007 and still make it back to campus for several sporting events each season. In fact, I have season tickets to football and basketball. Tailgating is definitely my favorite fall activity.
In my day job, I work in digital media and strategic communications for a government agency. Basically that means blogging, Facebook and Twitter are a huge part of my full-time job, and sometimes I get to visit the White House. It’s a fun gig.
I’m also going back to school part-time to get my MBA. When people ask me why, I half-jokingly tell them it’s so I can rule the world one day.
Aside from my fitness and sports antics, you might also see the cuties below making some guest appearances on the blog from time to time.
I’m lucky enough to live close to my cousins, who have some of the most adorable kids around, and I love spending time with them. (Please promise you won’t put me on STFUParents.)
Overall, I’m all about having fun and enjoying life while still being healthy. Health and fitness shouldn’t be a chore, it should be fun! Because as I like to say, “Life is funner, with a runner!”
