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. I took a year off from long distances, and am currently back chasing my “big” goal of a sub-2 half marathon finish. After this is achieved, I’ll be going back to short distances with heavier weight room focus until I feel the itch to race longer distances again.
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), boating with my family, my adorable dog, reading (anything health related and sometimes “chick-lit”), and gardening.
Thank you for stopping by & happy running!
