Hi, I’m Melissa.  Obsessive runner, trainer, group exercise & spinning instructor, and toddler Mom to two energetic little boys!

 I’ve been running since high school, where I ran four years of cross country and track.  I didn’t really start enjoying it until after that though, when I was doing it for me.

I had zero competitive edge until after my boys were born, and I was on a mission to take my health back, for them and for me.

There is something about running that is so addictive, and it bonds people together like nothing else I have experienced.  I have made some amazing connections and friendships through the running community

 I’m striding through life one run at a time, while feeding my addictions for Half Marathons, caffeine and guacamole!

Follow me here for the fitness shenanigans of an endorphin junkie, boy Mama!

  1. Hi

    Do you do personal training?

    I’m running my first marathon this August. Have a few halfs, 5ks, and 10ks under my belt.

    Could use some coaching on schedules and eating.

    Enjoy your inspiration!

    • Hi Brian! That’s exciting about your first marathon! I’m not doing a whole lot of training on the side right now, just some stuff in my spare time – but feel free to email me if you’ve got some specific questions! 😊Fitwithliss@yahoo.com

    • I am a runstreaker so I run everyday, but my “rest days” are just an easy 1 mile minimum. I do Spin a couple times a week which I believe is great for helping sculpt out the leg muscles! As for strength training I am mid marathon training cycle so with my high running mileage I am not doing a whole lot of lifting other than some short arm circuits a cpl times a week to keep my arms toned. As for diet I eat pretty clean, a big game changer for me was eliminating (almost all) gluten. No bloating after you eat! Also, water intake plays a big role as well! 😊
