Fit Blogger We Love: Running Bun

Written on December 20, 2012 at 5:17 pm , by

Ashley dominated her Ragnar Relay miles without losing that infectious smile.

The first time we found Ashley at Running Bun and clicked over to her “About Me” page, we fell in love. When a girl lists “spandex” as the first item in a list of favorite things, we’ve found a girl after our own hearts. From her inner monologue during races to the detailed class reviews she shares, we can’t get enough of the witty runner. And the fact that she figured out the perfect solution for girls with super long and thick hair? Genius.

Read on to find out what else she can’t live without and which mantra she sweats by – it’s OK, we added it to our motivational boards, too.

5 things I can’t live without: My dogs, leggings, coffee, Bruce Springsteen concerts and vegetables.

Most embarrassing song I’ll admit I work out to: I don’t think it’s embarrassing, but others have suggested it be deleted off of my iPod: “Can’t Be Tamed,” by Miley Cyrus.

My “I Did It” moment: Finishing 33 miles at the Ragnar Adirondacks Relay in September 2012. I had just come back from a foot injury, and finishing that type of distance gave me the confidence to pick up and continue to train for my fall marathon! After the NYC Marathon was cancelled, I ran the Richmond Marathon a week later and ended up with a new PR (personal record)!

My fitness mantra: “The body achieves what the mind believes!” A great friend told me this and I will never stop repeating it to myself when I am having a hard time getting through a workout or a run!

My motivation comes from: Wanting to run faster. There is nothing like training and racing your a** off. I feel so accomplished when I reach a goal and am able to set and work toward a new one!
