Hello there. And thanks for stopping by!
I’m Paula and I live in Orlando. In the real world, I work as a Technical Writer and am married to this hunk of love right here:
I love fitness, cupcakes, celebrity gossip, music, movies, TV, and running. I have an inordinate amount of useless celebrity knowledge. If I could remember anything besides stuff like the names of James Cameron’s ex-wives, I’d probably be doing something else besides blogging. Like, brain surgery.
I have always struggled with my weight. I have been up and down my whole life, and when I’m down, it’s hard for me to stay down. (Just check out my Celebs page and you can see all the weight fluctuations there.) I started running after high school to lose weight. At first, I could barely run around the block, but I keep working at it until I could run 6 miles comfortably. I never challenged myself with distance or speed until two years ago.
I ran my first half marathon on October 4, 2010 after some
encouragement begging from my friend, Tiffany. My friend, Michelle, jumped on board (it was her first half too) and my support system was set! Now, my goal is to run a sub-2-hour half marathon. I’ve gotten really close. Twice.
I also ran my first full marathon – the Savannah Rock n Roll on November 5, 2011. It was one of the toughest things I’ve done physically and emotionally and I kinda hated it. Then I ran my second marathon six weeks later and loved it. A lot. It was the kind of race experience that reminds you why running is so rewarding.
So, with this blog, you’ll read about running, Crossfit, and my unnatural love for movies, TV, concerts, and binge eating cupcakes and Peeps. And probably some other shenanigans too.
You’ll also get random pictures of my bunny you didn’t even know you wanted until you got them.
