When I started my blog, my goal was really to focus on fitness, hence the name Fit Talker (a play on words from sh*t talker). However the blog has changed quite a bit over the years.
Some degree of fitness was always involved, but the focus varied.
I got certified as a Spinning instructor in August 2009 and for the longest time, this was a spinning blog. I used it as a place to share my playlists and class profiles. Now, thanks to Facebook Groups and services like Spotify, it’s easy to share music and profiles, so that fell off the blog.
Then it was just general fitness. Then about me getting back in shape.
Then it was about my training for my first half marathon, which I completed in October 2015.
And right now it’s become more of a running blog. I seriously NEVER would have guessed that I’d ever write about running.
I still don’t consider myself a runner. I’m working on being a runner, but it’s going to take some time. I’m not fast. I might never be fast, but that’s OK. I’ll still work to improve my times, but I’ll probably never break 9 minutes (if that!)
You probably didn’t click on “About Me” to learn about the blog, but more likely the person behind it. So here’s a little about me.
I live in CT. I’m originally from NY but moved here 8 years ago (holy cow!). I live with my boyfriend and our (most amazing) dog, Minnie. I am completely and totally obsessed with Minnie, and love dogs in general. She’s a pitbull and so I’ve unofficially become a breed ambassador trying to teach people the truth behind the breed.
My full time job is in product management, my part time job is teaching spinning. My boyfriend has a pizza trailer (similar to a food truck) and that has unofficially become another non-paying part time job.
I love food. I love to travel. I love to bake (but not really cook). I’ve always loved to workout, even when I couldn’t find the time or motivation. I’m very much a type A organized, structured type of person and want to work on being more spontaneous.
So that, in a nutshell, is me. Thanks for stopping by and reading. Don’t be a stranger!
