Let me introduce myself
I’m Jen and I live in Staten Island, NY with my husband and two great kids, P.J. (10) and Alyssa (6).
I work full-time in NYC and then I come home and go on Mom duty. On top of all that, I run and workout regularly. My love affair with running is almost 20 years strong. I have run countless races and four marathons. I was supposed to run the NYC marathon in 2011 and 2012, but did not. Instead, the week before the marathon, I lost my home and all of my family’s possessions in Hurricane Sandy.
It was a tough year, but I have learned how lucky I truly am. The storm didn’t break me, it made me stronger. Strong enough to run the NYC Marathon on November 3rd, 2013. It was an amazing experience that I will never forget. It was so great that I ran NYC again in 2015.
On top of that, I love to connect with others who are also on a journey into fitness and wellness.
People always say that they don’t know how I do it all. I do what I can and I wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s not not easy, but it is absolutely worth it! I am worth it and so are you!
This blog is full of sorted tales of my juggling act of life and my journey to find balance. Additionally I sometimes even talk about my New Kids on the Block addiction.
If you are looking for the way to make it happen, follow along but hold on tight because it’s a bumpy ride.

For now, I gotta run!
