About Me

TDP_9200I’m Kristen, aka The Running Mom.  I’m married to the most amazing and supportive man who happens to be my high school sweetheart.  I’m a mom to two sweet little boys.

I’m not the best or fastest runner out there; I just love to run.  I love it even more when I have the company of my sweet boys (well, except for that added resistance!).  I have run 5 half marathons, 3 marathons and a handful of other race distances.

I have a million reasons why I run which are always changing and evolving.  I love to do crazy things like run 20 miles pushing my son in the jogging stroller.  I also love to do normal things like cooking, baking, traveling, and spending time with my little family.  I am a vegetarian and a big believer in clean eating.  I have a sight obsession with Europe, specifically France and more specifically Paris.  I’m still hanging onto hope I can convince my hubby to move there.

I’m currently a stay at home mom to my little princes Zain and Ezra.  I have both my B.A. and M.A. in International Relations with a concentration in Cross-Cultural Communication and French.  Before becoming a mama, I worked for a large international organization followed by a non-profit organization where I was a teacher.  I am currently studying to become a certified health coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.  In January 2014, I will begin a Master’s of Science program in Nutrition and Integrative Health at the Maryland University for Integrative Health so that I can become a nutritionist.

Happy running!
