Whenever I stumble across a good blog I always check out their About Me section first. I enjoy “getting to know” the person I am reading about and it helps me make a better connection with them.
My name is Courtney and I am a 27-year old living in SE Iowa. I have a husband, Morgan, and we have a four-year old German shepherd named Charlie. He is a bit ornery.
I have two bachelor degrees; one in exercise science and the other in elementary education. Although I spend my days in the classroom as a teacher (I teach 5th grade), I am a certified personal trainer and truly enjoy helping people achieve their fitness goals. I also LOVE to talk about running, so that is where the idea for making a blog came from.
I have been running distance for about nine years now. I really started running more when I was a freshman at the University of Iowa (go Hawkeyes!) I have developed a genuine passion for running and hope to share that with you. I am madly in love with half-marathons and could run one every weekend if I had my way. As for the marathon- I have run four of them, and plan to continue running more of them. Each marathon I run I begin to appreciate it more and more.
In my spare time I absolutely love being with my family and friends. I also love reading, drinking endless amounts of coffee, traveling, being outdoors, and watching Sex and the City re-runs and anything on HGTV. Kara Goucher is my absolute idol and she has liked SIX of my Twitter posts. I may also have her autograph framed. I think liking 6 Twitter posts is the equivalent of best friend status. Right?!
I love answering questions and talking about health and fitness in general, so please feel free to leave a comment!
