Hi all! My name is Ashley, and I am a 23 year old living Baltimore and making the most of this amazing city. I have been active my whole life, and have grown up playing sports. In high school I played field hockey and lacrosse, and then went on to play field hockey in college. I had the greatest experience in college, and made some of my very bset friends there.
The thing about playing a sport in college, is that your life is so structured. I didn’t have to worry about gaining the freshman 15, because I was practicing at least 2 hours a day during season, and in off season we would have practices and lifting scheduled into our routines too. I actually ended up losing a few pounds throughout school, even though my eating habits were awful. I felt as though, since I was so active, there was no reason for me to eat well.
I’ve graduated, and realized that now is the time to figure out how to fuel my body the right way. I am on a journey now to balance work, play, and being active. In 2009 I completed my goal of running a 10k. My goal for 2010 is to run a half marathon. I have just recently signed up for the DC Cherry Blossom 10 mile race with some of my best friends. I’ll be documenting my training for the race, my yoga practice, my friends and family, and my food. Sit back and enjoy the ride!
