My name is Ashley and I live in the beautiful, Pacific Northwest with my husband and our three furry babies (two cats and a dog). In my professional life, I am a teacher. In my distant dreams, I run for a living, eat massive quantities of pasta and don't gain a pound...a girl can dream, right?
Running is in my blood, I grew up with a marathon runner for a father and had always had it in my veins. It wasn't until college when I found running to be an incredibly cathartic experience. The stress of school and life itself became enjoyable and all around manageable with a short run between classes. Two years ago, I decided to train for my first half marathon and became serious about racing. I knew I could succeed but needed to commit to a goal. And I did, I completed my first half marathon in April 2012. Now I am forever hooked!

My dream is to inspire others, to encourage those who don't think a healthier lifestyle is possible. On my blog you will find my adventures in running, my tips on healthy living and recipes I cannot seem to get enough of. Join me as I pursue this journey in running shoes with these little legs carrying me every step of the way.
