I've always been fairly active but once I started my career as a Flight Attendant, I knew that eating on the go and an abnormal sleep schedule could wreck havoc on my body pretty quick. I started running to keep myself healthy (and the cocktails to a minimum) and quickly 5 miles turned into a half marathon which led to a full marathon.
My running start- Couch to 5K
Flying Pig Half Marathon in Cincinnati, Ohio (2009)
Flying Pig Full Marathon in Cincinnati, Ohio (2010)
Melissa's Road Race in Banff, Canada (2010)
I took a break from running and fell in love with Bikram Yoga, Body Pump and Spinning.
Once pregnant, I tried to stay active through some pretty bad morning sickness. I stuck to walking 3 miles most days and light weight lifting at the gym with Geoff and took prenatal yoga classes. Now I'm attempting to get back into shape post baby. I'm a work in progress but feel free to follow along with me as I make changes to get my body back after having my first child!
