Fit Blogger We Love: The Concrete Runner

Kristen takes advantage of a jogging stroller to still fit in her workouts - we love it!

When we sign up for running races, we're usually just happy to be outside, soaking in the weather and enjoying the camaraderie among all the happy-to-be-there runners. But for Kristen, there's a little bit more to it: this girl actually wins races! We can't help but be in awe when we click over to The Concrete Runner and soak in her different experiences, especially now that she's balancing life as an athlete and new mom (and OK, we admit it: we can't stop looking at the photos of her adorable daughter). Who knows, maybe some of her speedy secrets will rub off on us?

My favorite way to workout: I love to run! It's always the best part of my day and keeps my stress levels down (for the most part).

My biggest indulgence: Frozen custard or ice cream - I eat ice cream for dessert almost every night. It helps curb my craving so I don't overdo it!

My "I Did It" moment: Winning my first 5K. I've never worked so hard or raced smarter than I did that race. It was one of the best moments of my life!

My biggest motivator: My daughter. I want to be a healthy role model as she grows up, and I hope that someday she'll want to run with me!

Olympic sport I'd love to try: Gymnastics! I've always loved tumbling, but was told I would be too tall for gymnastics. I wish I was as athletic as Olympic gymnasts are!
