You guys- my first guest post! The first one is from a fun-filled friend, Kristen. She’s a fabulous gal with some witty spunk. She just started up her blog and promotes and educates a healthy lifestyle too. Follow, like and support her blog!
Hello, hello! I am excited to be guest posting today on Chelsea’s blog! My name is Kristen, a 26 year old Midwesterner. I am pretty new to the blogosphere myself. I blog mostly about running, vegetarian lifestyle, and other fun that comes up along the way. I didn’t really have any goals when starting my blog other than I wanted to be able to look back over the years and see where I have come. I have been inspired to be healthy since college when I gained the freshman 40 pounds. I decided to make exercise a priority but didn’t start running until about 4 years later. I now have run 2 marathons and 6 half’s! As a now avid runner I wanted to fill you all in on some of my confessions.
My neighbors may think I am insane. When they are letting their dog out at 4:30am you are jetting off to your run in a reflective vest they may turn their head. My neighbor then sees me return from my run, and may think it’s strange that in 9 minutes I am now backing out of your driveway to leave for work. A fast shower is a skill that I have learned to appreciate.
I own more sports bras than real bras. Priorities right?
While I am running a race I often think about the next race I am going to sign up for. They’re addicting that is for sure.
My significant other doesn’t appreciate the smell of my running clothes. It comes with territory.
I can’t eat whatever I want if I am training. As a vegetarian it is so easy for me to turn to carbs as my only option. I have to make sure I plan ahead to include protein or I won’t get the nutrients I need.
I will end up asking for running gear for birthdays and Christmas. My friends and family always know they are safe with gifting me with running socks or sports bras.
