About the Author Behind Living Life Between the Miles
After a few months of Texas living, we decided that a furry friend would be a great addition to our family, so we adopted Brandy from the Humane Society when she was 4 months old!
For a while now, I’ve wanted to start up a blog of my own after reading many health and fitness blogs. It was only after my husband kept encouraging me to bite the bullet and do it, that I actually did! The meaning behind the title “Living Life Between the Miles” is simple. I will be sharing bits and pieces of my life on this blog from running and cooking to traveling and teaching. Through this blog I will hopefully inspire and motivate others to get active and maintain healthy lifestyles while keeping myself accountable at the same time!
I have enjoyed running for pleasure since high school when my dad first introduced me to it. Running is my time alone with God, it’s my stress relief, and it’s where I feel my strongest. I enjoy trail running the most, and you can often find me looking for new trails to run on. This past year I wanted to take all my running and put it to good use, so I signed up for my first half marathon.I finished in 1:57:53 . Since then I have run smaller races but am looking forward to signing up for another half or possibly a full.

In the past I have struggled with an unhealthy relationship regarding food. Over the past 3 years I have finally made peace with calories and begun to view food as fuel that will help my body run properly. I enjoy tweaking dishes to make them healthy and experimenting with new healthy foods that my picky husband will eat
I will also be sharing some of my adventures as a First grade teacher on this blog. Working with children is such a blessing, and I always come home with new funny stories to share about my kiddos.
Happy reading! Thanks for stopping by
