Constance, Connie, CC. Constantly on the Run.
Digital Media Manager by day, blogger by night. I’m a running and group fitness class fanatic chasing after that Boston unicorn, I have been on a plane at least once a month since October 2016 thus am an avid user of Scott’s Cheap Flights with still a very long bucketlist of adventures to check off, I’m convinced French should have been my first language after my spontaneous trip to France and have been using Duolingo and YouTube videos since to learn it, I love fashion and in fact designed my sophomore year formal dress however I try to find all the deals because adventures > possessions. I love meeting new people and trying new things (unless it’s fish because pickiest eater ever, kind of) but also love a good cuddle sesh on the couch with my Little Lu.
I originally started this blog to share my running journey but over time, it has evolved into so much more. I’ve probably gone through more changes in the past year than people will in 5 but I am so thankful for what it has shaped me to be and hope that by sharing my experiences, it will also help all of you. So I hope you will take a leap of faith with me and keep this blog running!
Personal Records (on the course)
Due to soccer and a short stint of track in high school, I’ve always been a “runner”. But it wasn’t until about a year ago that I wanted to actually improve my times so with that being said, I don’t have a ton of races that are true PRs but you gotta start somewhere!
