Thank you for visiting bubblyrunner! My name is Jen, and I love running and champagne, hence the blog title 🙂 I also try and maintain a positive outlook on life as much as possible and see the good in everything, and this is something I continually am working on and striving for.
I began running off and on after college, and had a love-hate relationship with it. I completed a few 5K’s and a 10K, but was not consistent and would often go months at a time without running at all. When stressed with school, work, or life in general, I would often cope by imbibing too much at happy hours, which led to poor food choices, unproductiveness the next day, and an overall feeling of ‘blah.’ One morning, I decided to lace up my shoes and just run. I remember feeling out of breath before my first mile and thinking my heart was going to explode out of my chest. But more than that, I remember how I felt after I finished–I felt accomplished, proud, and HAPPY. Fast forward to now, and I have completed three (soon to be four!) half marathons and continue to run 4-5 days a week. Running brings me peace and is how I maintain my sanity.
I am a wife, school psychologist, and mother to a lab/basset hound mix named Rusty. I am an avid Green Bay Packers fan (although I live in Washington, D.C.) and love cooking and baking, as well as champagne & wine (obvi). I hope you enjoy bubblyrunner!
