Hi! My name is Jess. I’m a twenty-something currently living in Washington, D.C. I’m a runner and love training for races of all different distances, although the half marathon is my favorite.
I’m not fast, and I’ll certainly never win any races, but I love running because crossing the finish line makes me feel like I accomplished something.
Aside from running and healthy living, 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 football and soccer games each season.Tailgating is definitely my favorite fall activity.
In my day job, I work as a social media strategist for a government agency. Basically that just means blogging, Facebook and Twitter are a huge part of my full-time job. If you’re curious to see what I do when I wear my 9-5 hat, you can check out my work blog, Twitter and Facebook accounts or check out my first on-camera interview in my professional role. (I’m near the 35-second mark.)
Overall, I’m all about having fun and enjoying life while still being healthy. Health and fitness shouldn’t be a chore, it should fit naturally into our daily lives.
