Fit Blogger We Love: Caitlin Lives Well

Caitlin is all smiles after finishing the Chicago marathon in 2011!

A devoted runner with a fun-loving attitude, Caitlin from Caitlin Lives Well is a great role model for finding balance within healthy living. Her tagline sums it up quite nicely, actually: "choosing health, one day at a time." After all, that's all anyone can do, isn't it? Read on to find out what makes her happiest and what intense workout trend has piqued her interest.

My favorite way to work out: Running, indoor cycling and I'm a new CrossFit convert. Last week I did a WOD [Editor's note: This is CrossFit speak for "Workout of the Day."] and couldn't walk down stairs without cringing for three days, so I was immediately hooked.

On my fit life list: Complete a triathlon, run the Dublin and London marathons, become a run coach and coach new runners/first-time marathoners.

My fitness mantra: I run because I can. When I get too caught up in PRs (personal record), splits and bad runs, I remind myself that I'm blessed with my health and the ability to move.

I'm happiest when I'm: Running on the beach. Running, endorphins, sun, sand, doesn't get any better.

My motivation comes from: Surrounding myself with awesome, fit people. I have an amazing husband and incredible friends, teachers and coaches—working out with them is fun, inspiring and keeps me going.
