About Me

I’m Katie. A 24-year-old, fitness enthusiast! I started this blog as a sort of outlet- someway to get my creative juices going and share what I love with others.  But, really I just decided that I like to read other people’s blogs, why not write my own? Read random facts about me here. And another section about me HERE!

I am a recent college grad (with no “real” job”) with a major in Health and Physical Education. During my college days I played field hockey. I had the time of my life, and made the best friends ever!

There’s me!

After my field hockey days were over, I was at a loss for a while trying to find something that would keep my attention while getting my fitness kick. That’s when a certain guy I know introduced me to running and cycling…particularly duathlons (Run, Bike, Run). I did my first one in October 2011 and was HOOKED. My competitiveness came out and I was instantly addicted to the endorphin rush of the sport. I asked for a road bike for my graduation present and just recently did my second third duathlon and can’t wait to sign up for more. When not running or biking, I love classes at the gym where I work, like Body Pump, and HIIT classes. There’s nothing like  the feeling after a good workout, NOTHING! :)

After my first Duathlon!

That being said- if you have come looking for running advice… you probably won’t find that here. HA! I’m experimenting just as much as you are with training. The only advice I can give you is for amazing run gear, check out Oiselle! They are a fantastic company making great running gear for WOMEN only. So you know its good cause they know exactly what we like :) I also happen to have been chosen as an ambassador for this group in September 2012 and couldn’t be happier to be involved with this wonderful group of women.

I also love to online shop, buy tons of workout clothes which by far outweigh my “normal” clothes! I read lots of books, love going to the beach, and am a diehard Pittsburgh sports fan!

Feel free to contact me at katiemoves1 [at] gmail . com, I would love to hear from you!

    ……are we the same person?!?!?! haha seriously I’m so glad you commented on my blog so I could find yours! I too have excessive amounts of energy that need to be expended through workouts, and biking and running are my favorites too! Duathlons sound like SO much fun. And yes to chocolate, coffee, and coconut. and online shopping and being addicted to workout clothing. Can’t wait to keep reading! :-D
