About me: I am a runner, a newbie weight lifter, an accountant by day, a blogger and a nut butter fanatic. I love to cook and create healthy recipes. I started this blog as a recipe website, but then made it more personal to include other aspects of my life.
My family: I have the most amazing family. My parents are the best, especially for putting up with me :) I have an older Brother Mike, who has always been the best brother; an older sister Becca, who is my role model and best friend; and my Twin, Lauren, who has also been the best twin anyone can ask for.

Recently, my family has expanded. I now have a new brother-in-law Todd and sister in law, Tracy, as well as a niece/god daughter, Taylor, and nephew, Matt.

Running: I am a former ultramarathon runner. The farthest distance I have ever run is 100 miles. I remember feeling like I wanted to quit and give up at mile 70. I almost did. Everything hurt. But I pushed through and made it. It was the greatest feeling in the world finishing that race. I am no longer an ultramarathoner, but I will always remember back and look at it with fond memories (well, minus the aches, pains and blisters). Running has given me the confidence that I would not otherwise have to overcome obstacles in other areas in my life. Follow me as I run BOSTON MARATHON 2010.
Me and Dick Hoyt: Boston Marathon Expo 2009. The most amazing guy!
