Hi there! I’m Jessica, and I live in New Jersey. In 2004, I weighed nearly 300 pounds and suffered from debilitating anxiety, depression, and obsessive compulsive disorder. My mother being diagnosed with breast cancer was the wake-up call I needed to turn things around, and over the next six years, I lost more than 100 pounds through sensible eating and being more active.
Today, I’m a marathon runner and triathlete, and I’m loving where this running thing has taken me. I started this blog to document my fitness adventures, share some recipes and race recaps, make some friends and have some fun along the way.
I’m glad you found me – and I hope you enjoy the ride!
