About me.

 Hi!

My name is Gabby.

IMG_1015

Let’s get the facts straight …

  •  I’m studying at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. I’m a Neuroscience/Behavioral Biology major and am a member of the Varsity Women’s XC/Track teams.
  •  I’ve been running for about 8 years and consider February 17th my “Run-a-versary.”
  •  I have a Fuji apple addiction. I love fruit and eating healthy in general, but don’t get me wrong … Poptarts are my (occasional) downfall.
  • My family and friends are beyond awesome and I don’t know where I would be without them! Cliché maybe, but it’s true nonetheless.
  • My heart will always be in the Pacific Northwest, no matter where I live.
  • My favorite length race is probably in 10Ks or 5 miles – road races, though. I’ve run the 800m, 1600m, 3200m, 3K (and 3k steeplechase), 5Ks, 6Ks, 8Ks, 10Ks, and 5 mile races … but the longer distance are definitely my favorite.

I don’t have a super inspirational story to share since my life really hasn’t been too dramatic (so far?). I’m just a Northwest gal who loves to run, write, eat, and go on adventures. I started this blog just as a way to share my own running experience and I’ve been amazed by the amount of support I’ve found from my fellow bloggers as well as fellow runners out there.

See you around. :-)

  1. Agreed about John and Michael..I use first names to pretend I actually know them. I must admit, I too love shows about jail time and cops. Very interesting TV right there!

    • Oh how I wish I knew them! But, I suppose using their first names is a start. And agreed, very interesting, if not a bit scary at times. Haha glad I’m not the only one who enjoys it!

  2. First of all Happy belated run-aversary! I hate running and because I do my trainer at the gym use to make me do it on the treadmill at the highest elevation just to watch me suffer! lol What made you start? And as far as having no rhythm, at least you know it. Have you ever seen people who have no rhythm dance and swear they can actually dance? Like Elaine on Seinfeld. So sad. lol Keep running!

    • Haha I think I would hate running if I had to do that as well! I played soccer for years before and always enjoyed running, but once I was in junior high, was able to try cross country and after my first season was hooked! Since then, I’ve stuck to cross country and track, and now run year round. :-) Haha yes … I wish I had rhythym, but alas, I don’t. I look up to those people who think they have rhythym and get out there and dance anyway. That’s true confidence! Haha thank you for your comment, best of luck to you in your running too! :-)

  3. I love running too, but sprint is my forte. I always end up sight seeing every time I do cross country, hence, I’ll always be the last person to arrive at the finish line. lol. I’m amaze how cross country runners can manage such focus. My give my respect to you. Oh, thanks for the like, btw. :) 3 cheers for running :)

    • Sprints? That’s great! One of my biggest goals is to become faster… I’m jealous! :-) Haha I totally agree about cross country being so scenic. Makes me wish I wasn’t actually racing so I COULD enjoy the sights! Haha the focusing part about racing takes some practice, but thank you … and yay for running! No problem for the like by the way, I enjoyed your blog. :-)

  5. Gabby, thanks for landing on my post. I wish I ran earlier–I ran one season of cross in 10th grade and had to quit because of knee issues. But I started running again 8 years later and have never stopped. 30 years I’ve run and I know it has changed the course of my life. I will run until the day I die. It seems you love running in the same way. Hope you enjoy your journey as much as i have. And thanks again for reading my post. If you like what you see and you read further posts, leave a comment. I’d like to know what you think.

    • Of course! I enjoyed your post, might have to stop by again. :-)
      That is so great that you have been running for so long and plan on it for the rest of your life! I love running and want to make it a lifetime activity, not just one that I did during highschool. :-)

  6. Hi! I’m just a little bit older than you (ie quite a lot!) but we are very similar in many ways. I have a granny smith apple addiction that I must fulfill daily! I love running though I’ve been doing it for a little bit longer & I prefer half & full marathons. I also love to cook & bake though I can’t eat gluten. Good luck with your running! xxx

    • Why hello! I am SO glad you decided to drop by and check out my blog. Sounds like I’ve found my twin! (If not a bit older of one. ;-) My mom is gluten free so I can understand baking without gluten and how it can be tricky. Granny Smiths are alright, but have you ever tried Fujis!? ;-) Someday I hope to try half marathons. Seems like the perfect distance! Best of luck with your running as well … twin. :-)
