Hey Everyone! Welcome to Endorphin Junkie :)I have been reading food and fitness blogs for several years now, and really wanted to start my own! I chose the name ‘Endorphin Junkie’ because I’m literally addicted to the high exercise gives me every day (except rest days of course…)
I’ve played sports since I could walk, and started running in college when my Dad signed me up for my first half marathon. I’ve now run several half marathons, 10 milers, 10Ks and 5Ks and hope to run a million more 🙂 My sister also runs and is a Zumba instructor, so we keep fitness in the family.
I’m also addicted to sweets (chocolate specifically), so I spend some of my free time baking. I’ve baked cupcakes for a wedding (with the help of my Mom)…but mostly I just bake for myself and various parties that request baked good (which is every party…duh!).
I married my best friend on August 7, 2010. My husband, Andrew, isn’t a runner (yet!), but he is one of my biggest fans and supporters and has gotten up at crazy hours of the morning to watch me run. I don’t know what I would do without him!
I completed my Doctor of Physical Therapy in August 2017 from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (GO HEELS!!). While the program was three years, this process took over five years to complete. I can’t believe I’m a licensed PT, and can’t wait to share the knowledge I gain from this amazing profession!
I hope you enjoy my random posts about running, fitness, food, baking, chocolate (or lack of chocolate), adventures, and aren’t annoyed by my spelling and grammar errors. Thanks for reading 🙂
