Fit Blogger We Love: Mile 26 and More

We came across Heather’s blog, Mile 26 and More, from one of your recommendations on our last Fit Blogger We Love post, and we’re still wondering how this mom and marathoner juggles work, parenting, training and teaching fitness classes all while making it look fun. Here are more tidbits about this multitasking runner:

5 things I can’t live without: iPhone, Lululemon racer back tanks, running shoes, dark chocolate, my family

I’m happiest when I’m: Being active with my husband and son.  We love bike rides, hikes, parks, swimming, you name it!

Most embarrassing song I’ll admit I work out to: My iPod has mostly hip hop music on it, but there are a few songs from the musical, Newsies, that pop up once in awhile.  My sister and I LOVE that movie!

My fitness mantra: “Try Before You Cry!”  I always use this when teaching my group fitness classes.  You never know if you’re going to like something, or how strong you really are until you try!

My “I Did It” moment: Crossing the finish line at the Cleveland marathon with my husband and son.  This was my second marathon in 2 weeks and the first one was not what I had hoped for.  But the day of the Cleveland marathon was “my day” – perfect weather and the perfect race.  I felt great and finished right under my goal – I was seriously on cloud 9!

    You couldn’t have picked a better fitness blogger to feature! I call her “supermom” because she really does it all and does it so well. I am proud to call Heather one of my friends – in blog land and real life.

    Heather is a great person. I work out at her step class in Parma. She motivates me ever class that I attend. Heather makes working out fun while kicking my butt in the process. After her workouts I feel great. She is such a great motivator:)
