Well, hello there. I’m Paula. This is me.
No, the one on the right. The cute one on the left is my husband. We live in Orlando and in the real world, I work as a Technical Writer (and sometimes Instructional Designer).
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.
My weight has always been up and down. (Just check out my Celebs page and you can see all the weight fluctuations there.) I can’t blame anyone but myself because food is delicious and I like to eat it. A lot. And in mass quantities. So, I started running after high school to
eat more lose weight. At first, I could barely run around the block, but I keep working at it and eventually I could run 6 miles comfortably. I never challenged myself with distance or speed until four years ago.
I ran my first half marathon on October 4, 2010 and since then I’ve run 2 full marathons, 21 half marathons, one 15k, a handful of 10k and 5ks, and a few mud/color runs. My biggest goal: a sub-2 hour half marathon. I’ve gotten close. Twice.
So, with this blog, you’ll read about running and how I find it rewarding just making it through a race without having to poop. You’ll also hear a little about Crossfit (which I do 3x a week) plus 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 that you didn’t even know you wanted until you got them.
All grown up.
Anyway, welcome to my blog. Glad you stopped by. Unless you hate it, then I’m not glad.
