Hello! My name is Bianca and I’m a wife, mother, foodie and fitness lover from Michigan. I started running regularly in 2013. If you asked me to describe myself from 2014 to early 2017, I’d say I was a ‘challenge seeker.’ That led me to run 8 half marathons, two 25k’s, two marathons, complete a sprint triathlon, and a century ride (100-mile bike). I was always looking for the next big challenge. Things have since changed, and while I still enjoy a good challenge, I’ve become focused on exercising for heart health. I still run for mental clarity and the fact that I enjoy running, but we only get this one life and I want to make sure I’m around for as long as I can. As far as racing goes, I’m turning my focus to 5-10k’s for the most part. I’m excited to see my time improvements now that I’ll be focusing solely on these shorter distances.
I am not a “fast” runner, but I’ve always loved the challenge and how going for a run makes me feel. I love the example it sets for my daughter. I love that she sees the amazing impact that being active can have on your life. I love that running brings my entire family together. Competing or not, they’re all there at the races. Other than running, I love to bike, swim (when I have pool access), and practice yoga.
I started sharing my fitness journey on Instagram in August of 2014 to keep myself motivated and to hopefully inspire others to live a healthy lifestyle as well. I fell in love with the running community on Instagram! So many wonderful, sweet, inspiring people! After months of contemplating, I decided to start blogging just as another way to document my journey.
Some of my favorite things: Mexican food, music (everything from Hanson to Keith Urban to Maroon Five), a weekend with family at the cottage, and my smushy faced boxer dog.
Thank you for stopping by & happy running!
