Growing up, books were my best friends. I fell in love with writing and, ever since, I’ve lived my life wrangling words. Enjoying the Journey: Observations on the Fit Life is my place to explore all aspects of living an adventurously joyous life.
Writing, Work, and Passion
I’ve been an educator, freelance writer, editor, and content strategist, but fitness is a long-lasting passion. Working out started as a management tool for family, stress, and weight and became a love affair with long-distance running. When my Ironman coach suggested an online training diary to connect with other athletes, I started blogging. That fitness focus led to landing my dream job: editor in chief of a local fitness magazine. That marriage of workouts, words, and creative team management (don’t forget marketing, website development, and social media–all part and parcel of publishing today) were great years.
All good things come to end, though, and when I left the 9-to-5 grind for freelancing, Enjoying the Journey was waiting.
You can find me in Austin, Texas, writing about adventures, working out with friends, enjoying good food, and still reading anything I can get my hands on.
