We. Are. Family.

GOIN TO THE CHAPEL and we're gonna get married. ITS WEDDING DAY!!! I don't know if you noticed but there was no post yesterday....and I think you can guess why. 

My day started at 6 when I went out for my Saturday run. I GOT SO INCREDIBLY LOST. My 4 miler quickly became an 8 miler. That's how lost I got. The joys of running while on vacation. LUCKILY I got my long run in because this morning was rough and there was no possible way a run was gonna happen. A happy accident.

After my amazing run I made some of the most magical sangria Camarillo has ever seen and promptly started drinking at 10. I mean it's 5 o'clock somewhere right? Then it was rehearsal time. We rocked it.  

What a handsome couple.

After a couple 12 packs, a pitcher of sangria and 3 bottles of wine it was rehearsal dinner time! Luckily it was stumbling distance so we headed over for the craziest dinner I've ever had. More wine, tons of steak and a pack of stickers = my kind of party.

It was all downhill from there and I, of course, ate it walking back to the hotel. Because I'm that girl. So I took my shoes off and flung them at the nearest groomsman to take care of. Then bathing suits were put on and of course I ended up in the pool.

I somehow managed to extract myself from the party and was in bed by 11 but this morning was not fun. But the only way to combat a hangover is with champagne so here we go again!

Alright boys and girls, I have to get my dress on. But I'll catch ya on the flip side.

It all started when a silly joke made headlines back in 2014 when I took selfies with hot guys “hottie hunting” my way through the New York City Half Marathon. But ironically enough, I haven't always been a runner. As the self-proclaimed former President of the "I f*cking hate running club", I spent most of my life finding ways to avoid physical activity. Growing up, I missed over 70 days of PE my senior year. Working out was something I thought I had to suffer through in order to lose weight. 

Then, in 2009, my younger brother passed away unexpectedly and struggling to manage my grief, I gained more than 75 pounds. With the weight gain came a new fight to regain my sense of self and learn to love the body I saw when I looked in the mirror. Then one Thanksgiving morning, drowning in grief and self doubt, I decided to go for a run. I didn't make it half way down my street before I had to stop to walk but for some reason, struggling forward made more sense than getting back into bed. It turns out that running is a lot like grief, neither ever really get easier, you just get stronger. 

Over time, I realized that while some people are in fact born runners, others are made. I created this blog Run, Selfie, Repeat and my new podcast by the same name with the hopes to inspire others to say yes to themselves while making them laugh hysterically because laughing, in my opinion, is the solution to everything. 

Named by Women's Running as one of twenty women who are changing the sport of running and by Competitor Magazine as one of 12 Influential and inspiring runners under 30, my mission is to inspire others to get embrace a healthy lifestyle and pursue the strongest version of themselves possible.
