My name is Lizzy. I am 30-something who lives in New Jersey but commutes to the Big Apple daily for work.  By day I am a cog in the corporate machine but by night and weekend, I am running and baking fanatic.  

This blog is about running, racing and my baking compulsion.  I would like to say that I eat healthy but my love of cheese, fries, hamburgers, candy and nutella usually gets in the way.  The good news is that all my running pretty much cancels out my calorie consumption (or at least that’s what I like tell myself and others as I stuff my face).

I have been reading healthy living and running blogs for a year or two now and finally decided to join the party.  Running is one of my favorite things to talk about but most of the time other people’s eyes glaze over with boredom.  Through this blog, I hope to share my race experiences, everyday life adventures and baking recipes.

Other Super Fun Stuff About Moi :

Graduated from Smith College

Loves country music, peanut butter sauce from Friendly’s and my Kindle

I am klutzy, accident-prone and generally dishelved.  Sometimes my fiancé equates me to Pig Pen from The Peanuts

    Awesome, you are amazing. I am soo jealous of your trip to Disney for the marathon in January. I ran the disney Marathon in 2010 and just LOVED every second of it. I totally want to go back and do the goofy. Time to save my pennies =) Awesome blog. Running is my favorite thing to talk about and obsess over so it is always nice to find people of the same sort. Because it is true, everyone eyes just gloss over eventually and just don’t get it!

    I just have to say that I too leave destruction everywhere I go! My husband calls me “disaster zone” all the time. Oh, and I went by Lizzy until I was 18. I think it has something to do with the name…
