Hello there! My name is Amanda and I am just another girl who loves to run. 😊 I started running when I was 14 years old and I do not plan on ever stopping! I am a former DI cross country runner who graduated in spring 2014 with a BA in Biology and a Master’s in Education in spring 2016. I am going back to school in fall 2018 to become a Registered Dietitian.
Currently: I am 26 years old, working, and living the city life with my (new) husband. We got married in July 2017 and are high school sweethearts! I am learning how to navigate life while making my marriage, health, happiness, and hobbies a priority.
Some of my passions include running, fitness, healthy food, and healthy living. I also like coffee, tea, peanut butter, dark chocolate, wine, craft beer, concerts, reading, cooking, crafts, and Netflix. Life is all about balance. 🙂
I eat plant based (mostly vegan and always vegetarian). My love of black bean burgers inspired the name of this blog! I hope, through this blog, to share some of my passions and nutritional knowledge (eventually expertise)! Then, in the process inspire others to live healthier lives! 🙂
