About

Hi!  I am Courtney, aka ThatRunnerChick.  I figured it was high time I made an About Me page for the blog!

I started ThatRunnerChick.com in March of 2010 as a way to keep track of my workouts and my daily food intake as I trained for my first marathon.  It has since evolved to also include race reports, recipes, and tales from teaching and my day to day life!

I currently live in Massachusetts with my husband and 2 dogs.  My husband, PW, is a full-time triathlon coach and I am a high school math teacher.  (Lucky for us, we both have our dream jobs, and truly enjoy what we do!)  I am also a licensed massage therapist, and all around fun gal.  PW and I eloped in October of 2009 in Kona, Hawaii, just 4 days before he competed in his first Ironman World Championships.

 

I love cooking (and eating!) and recently added a Recipes/Meal Ideas tab to my blog, which I am really excited about.  I really enjoy creating and tweaking recipes, especially core-friendly ones, and photographing them of course!  I, like a lot of healthy living bloggers, struggled with weight for years.  I started running and focusing on my diet (and following The Core) and was able to successfully lose and keep off 50 pounds.

I completed my first marathon in October 2010 in Lowell Massachusetts.  I am now training for another in October of 2011!
