My name is Linzi! I’m a newlywed military wife and I am passionate about fitness, healthy living, and life! Over here I blog about my journey to finding a healthy balance in my life.
I am a 28 year old who loves running, spinning, kickboxing and yoga (to name a few things)! My goal is to inspire others through my own fitness journey.
My fitness story:
In November 2008, I hit a point in my life where I was really unhappy with everything (my body, my job and even my love life). So I set out to make some changes and in the process haven’t really looked back!
I joined a running club and learned how to run a 5k. Since running my first 5k race in May 2009, I was instantly hooked and made a huge goal to run a marathon.
By October 2010, I ran my first marathon (The Nike Women’s Marathon in San Francisco), by October 2011 ran my second marathon, and have gone on to train for and run over 16 other races! As well as have dropped a few pounds just by making some small changes in my lifestyle.
In the process of running and trying out other fitness classes, I learned to love my body not for what it looked like, but for what it could do for me.
Once I found confidence in myself through running, I also found love! I met my best friend in April 2009, and we were married in July 2011!
We are both runners and love to inspire others through fitness!
I am passionate about planning events and working in the Marketing field. As my new life as a military wife takes me across the country, my actual day job will vary. But in the mean time, I will strive to become the healthiest version of myself while documenting my journey here on the blog.
I am an original Idaho Spud born and raised in Boise, Idaho –but will now be blogging about my running and life adventures on the road as I see where this new military life takes us! Starting in Georgia, and then who knows?!
