I am Amanda. Honestly, I don't really how to do this but I thought "leap and the net will appear." Maybe I will only have 3 readers, maybe I won't even be that lucky... I wanted to start this blog as I signed up for my first full marathon (26.2 miles) in May 2018, about 6 months from now. I have been running for almost 10 years now and I always turn to the internet when I need some inspo or fitspo. Most blogs, youtube and social media pages seem to feature super fit people doing their thing but I wanted to show that the average person can do this, you don't need to have 8% body fat or super long legs, you don't need a coach or a team, though that may help. This is going to be just me, my sneakers and my training journey. I thought it would be a fun way to share my journey with my friends and family as well as be able to look back on my progress. Anyways, I hope you enjoy.

A few more things ...

I love setting goals.

I am sarcastic.

I love shopping, especially shoes ... doesn't matter if you gain a few pounds, they always fit. From Nikes to Valentinos and everything in between.

I am a scorpio.

I have two dogs that I am obsessed with.

I got married last year.

I work helping people buy and sell homes.

I absolutely love my home town, Kamloops.

I love adventure. I love pushing my limits. I love challenging myself.

I am a supporter of the Kamloops Emergency Womens Shelter. I trekked through Iceland for 5 days this summer to raise awareness and money to help end the cycle of domestic violence.

I love finishing a run.
