Hey! I’m Morgan- a 23 year old graduate and former collegiate runner with a passion for health and wellness. On this blog you will find all the things that make me happy: health, fitness, running, and food! I hope you will follow along with me on your health and wellness journey!
Other things about me
Like I said, I’m a runner. I started running for my middle school cross country team in 7th grade and I ran competitively throughout my four years of college.
Running doubles as my best friend, my therapist, my social hour, and my quiet place.
Through running, I have met some of my absolute best friends and mentors. I’ve learned so much about myself and have grown more than I ever could have imagined.
I also love food-
And I realize how important it is to nourish our bodies with real food. I learned about pursuing a healthy lifestyle when I started listening to podcasts when I was sixteen. This topic has always interested me, so in college I moved on from podcasts to letting the majority of my research come from peer reviewed papers and journal articles.
I believe that what we put in our bodies has the ability to affect us in every facet of our lives- from our physical performance to our mental health. Now, I strive to create recipes and dishes that are healthy and filled with real food. I’ve been paleo, vegan, gluten free and everything else, but I’ve found that as long as I stick to real food and steer clear of processed junk and sugar, I’m healthier than when I try to force a diet on myself.
My family has always been my biggest support system- I’m not sure where I would be without them. My mom is my biggest supporter– she has taught me so much about health and wellness.
I also can’t have an “about me” page without mentioning my fiancé, Timothy. He endures the countless hours of my lectures on what he should and shouldn’t eat and supports me through my various endeavors . He’s also a highly motivated athlete who consistently inspires me every day!
Even more stuff. . .
