Living Fearless

Over the years, many friends have encouraged me to start a blog. So today, I decided to take a stab at blogging. They encouraged me for a couple reasons. First, my husband and I have a unique story that many couples do not share. One thing that sets us apart is that sisters from my family, married brothers from another. Let me explain, I have one older sister and my husband, Michael, has one older brother. My sister and his brother got married, a few years later, God brought us together and Michael and I got married. The second, unique side to our story, is that we train and compete together in athletic competitions. Michael and I share a strong drive to train, compete and get faster/stronger/better in our sports. Third, I am a Registered Dietitian who loves to practice what I preach. My friends feel that I have some insight regarding food, health and fitness that others may be interested in reading about. Using my knowledge as a Registered Dietitian to enhance athletic performance has been very helpful in both mine and my husbands athletic adventure.

My husband and I have been competing in races since we were dating in 2004. We have competed in Spartan races, 5k to full marathons as well as 70.3 & 140.6 Ironman triathlons. Throughout our journey, we have faced fears, pushed through tough experiences, grown stronger as individuals and a married couple. You know what they say, “The couple that trains together, stays together.” In our case, training has been a huge part of our relationship.

In past experiences, I have learned, fear is one thing that can hinder success. Learning to face your fears and growing from tough times has and I am sure will continue to be a part of my life. In days to come, the focus of this blog is going to be all about living fearlessly no matter what you face! I will even throw some Dietitian stuff in here too…like some of my favorite recipes and nutrition tips. Enjoy!
