About Me

Hi, My name is Kristin Pizzi. Welcome to my blog!  I live outside Boston, Massacusetts and have pretty much lived in Boston all my life, except for a one year move to San Diego. I even went to college 5 minutes down the road.  Although I dread the winters here, my family all lives in Massachusetts, so it looks like I am here to stay.

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!
