Morning! It’s the weekend! My parents are actually in town, Bobby and my dad are playing in a charity golf tournament for Bobby’s work, so mom and I are going to be hanging out today.
Love these two. They crack me up.
I hope you all have fun things planned for the weekend, too. I am headed out to be with my mom, but I wanted to leave you with something fun to read, so it’s time to learn about another blogger in the latest addition of RWS Features!
Meet Jess! Jess blogs at Run With Jess and you can find her on twitter @RUNwJESS. She is a runner and fellow coffee lover with a great attitude and sense of humor. be sure to stop by her blog and say hello!
1.) How/Why did you start blogging?
I started writing Run with Jess in Jan 2011 as my running journal, a place to collect and evaluate my own thoughts. It forced me to put more thought behind my training plans and made me accountable. I was quickly surprised at how many readers came my way, and even more delighted with the friendships I’ve made around the country via my blog.
2.) Describe your blog:
I try to keep Run with Jess about running and weight loss… overall fitness and health issues. While my kids/family/work are super important in my life, Run with Jess is my place to talk running.
3.) What do you wish to accomplish by blogging?
Initially, I just wanted to keep myself on track. Through the last year however, I’ve discovered some people are inspired by my stories and training. So I try to keep things real… tell it like it is. I incorporate as many “tips of the trade” into my writing as possible. Hopefully readers learn about some new products through my reviews or pick up alternate methods in training. Running has been such a powerful force in my life, that I really just feel the need to “pay it forward”…
4.) What is your biggest healthy living accomplishment?
My biggest accomplishment is still in the works. I hope to raise my two daughters to be healthy and fit. It’s not easy in this society of packaged and convenience foods. I hope they can avoid the depression and social judgments that come with obesity. But most of all, I just want my girls to be happy with their bodies and never stress too much over the image in the mirror. It’s a large task that will require my attention every single day.
QOTD: When you were a kid, did you eat healthy? Or was it a habit you formed later in life? Also, be sure to go by Run With Jess and say hello!
