I love helping mothers lead a healthy and fit lifestyle and set a good example for our children. After growing up playing team sports and playing lacrosse through college, I took up distance running to stay in shape. However, since moving to Jacksonville four years ago, new goals designed to break out of my comfort zone have made fitness much more than just fitting into my clothes. No more run, bicep curl, and sit-up routine! It started with setting time goals for races (new half marathon PR) and evolved into trying new types of races (a full marathon, a kayak/run biathlon, a run/swim/surfboard paddle trident, and a traditional sprint triathlon). Breaking out of my comfort zone has allowed me to continue to challenge myself while rediscovering the fun of exercise through a variety of activities I had never even considered, like trapeze, ariel yoga and stand up paddle board yoga. My business in three words: Strong, Healthy, Mothers. As a regular contributor to A Healthy Mom you can follow me here or on my facebook page.
