I started exercising regularly in 2008 after graduation from Clemson University. Since beginning an exercise regime, I have evolved into trying all kinds of different ways to stay fit. I initially started out with basic elliptical and strength training and even had a personal trainer one month. Once I switched gyms in 2010, I was introduced to group fitness classes and soon fell in love with Zumba, Body Combat, TurboKick, and Hip Hop Hustle. In 2012, my gym started offering a new class called Boot Camp. I went to one class and was intimidated by it that it took me another month before I tried it again.
It was also at the beginning of 2012 that I decided to train and run a 5K. I talked with the running girls in my Boot Camp class and soon was on my way to run a 5K. Not long after I ran my first 5K another running friend convinced me to attempt a half marathon. I went from not being able to run 1 mile in February to running 13.1 miles in October. I am currently attempting to maintain my running and overall fitness endurance.
I started this blog in an attempt to discuss my endeavors in life with fitness being the central element that connects everything together.
