Hello! My name is Bianca and I’m a wife, mother, foodie and fitness lover from Michigan. I started running regularly in February 2013 to get fit. I quickly realized what a great stress reliever it was! 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 more focused on exercising for heart health, as well as for mental clarity and enjoyment. I’ve opted to “allow” myself 1-2 half marathon races a year if I’m missing the longer distance side of running, but really focus more on the shorter distances.
I’ve always loved the challenge of running 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 like to bike, lift weights, and practice yoga.
Some of my favorite non-fitness things: Music (everything from Hanson to Keith Urban to Maroon Five), a weekend with family at the beach, my adorable dog, reading, and gardening.
Thank you for stopping by & happy running!
