Fit Blogger We Love: Enthusiastic Runner

Written on April 12, 2012 at 3:46 pm , by

Jocelyn loves to travel to new places, train for races and enjoy life!

Jocelyn grew up in Connecticut, where she was enthusiastic about sports all year round. But when she moved to the Big Apple after a four-year college stint in Oklahoma, she realized a new fitness goal was in order. So Enthusiastic Runner was born, where Jocelyn details her fitness adventures as she trains for her second marathon and first half-Ironman! We love catching up with her throughout the week, so get to know her here then pop over to her blog for more fun.

My favorite way to work out: Any workout that I can do outdoors! Whether it’s running, hiking, biking, skiing, tennis, softball or golf—I just love being outside.

5 things I can’t live without:

  1. My family and friends. I’m very lucky that I have amazing parents, a great sister/roommate (Hi Krista!) and friends who GET me.
  2. Running shoes. I always keep a pair at work in case I want to run home from work. [Editor's note: check out our 2012 sneaker guide to find your perfect fit!]
  3. My passport. I absolutely love to travel. Last year, I went to Singapore, the Philippines, Kenya, Tanzania, Turkey, Seattle, Oregon, Oklahoma, Austin, Montreal and Bermuda—all for fun!
  4. Country music. I can’t get enough! One of my favorite songs to run to is “No Reins” by Rascal Flatts.
  5. TV. As much as I love being outside, I’m addicted to watching the tube. I like to think they balance each other out.

On my fit life list: I have a few, actually. I want to qualify for the Boston Marathon (this might take a while), climb Mount Kilimanjaro, go to surf camp and bike across the United States.

My fave fit snack: Picky Bars. I was introduced to them last year and now I am addicted. They taste great, plus they’re gluten and dairy-free!

Most embarrassing song I’ll admit I work out to: “Faded” by soulDecision. It reminds me of high school dances (which were always fun)…and it’s really catchy!

  • Jocelyn Fan

    @ Meg – It’s extremely rude to nominate another person on this blogger’s page. Jocelyn is an inspiration to everyone she meets, a ray of sunshine to all, and a really good skateboarder. Before you try to sell someone else, how about congratulating Jocelyn on her impressive accomplishments and thoughful blog? This peice is well deserved and well written (nice job Samantha Shelton!)

    Yay Jocelyn – I adore her sense of adventure and her enthusiasm for the sport of running and for all runners! I can’t help but smile when I read her words and I have no doubt that she will make all her running dreams come true! :)

    We were the first to showcase the Beats By Dre kristin collection with you in August of 2009. Since then, the Kristin collection has turned into one of the most coveted and acclaimed lines by Beats. Back in October of last year, Vlad and I previewed Beats By Dr Dre’s Spring collection, in which the Kristins were well represented.
    For Spring 2011 the Monster Beats Norge takes center stage in their line yet again.Nye Beats By Dre still offers their Poppy collection for those that want the glitz and fun, their monogram bags for those that want to sport the brand’s recognized logo, but the Kristin collection fits into its own sleek and refined category that I absolutely appreciate and adore.It is the many options that make the Kristin Collection my Beats By Dre for this week.

    There was a time when huge celebrities who largely avoided domestic advertising in order to maintain their pristine images for Belstaff Down Jackets fans did ad campaigns overseas for big bucks and Americans were none the wiser.Michael Kors Outlet, we now have a peek at Gwyneth Paltrow‘s first ads as the international brand ambassador for Belstaff Jackets UK.American consumers already have a vision of Coach and a vision of Gwyneth Paltrow, and those two vision don’t necessarily intersect. And that’s fine, because Belstaff Jackets is already raking in bushels of money on its current, carefully crafted American branding.But for an overseas audience that’s less familiar with the position that Beats By Dre Norge has in the American fashion landscape, the fresh-faced, blonde, blue-eyed actress against a blurry, fast-paced Manhattan backdrop likely reflects exactly the combination of urbanity and Americanness that Coach Outlet would like its foreign customers to see when they look at one of the brand’s handbags. She certainly does look happy with her patent leather satchel.
