Hi, I'm Fox! I am a 30something dog lover in Pittsburgh, PA. Happy to be a returning member of the Purple Passion BL Team for our 2017 Winter Challenge!

I am a charity runner in training for the 2018 Pittsburgh Half Marathon. I am completing the Steel Challenge this year:

~ 5k on Saturday, May 5
~ First leg of the Relay on Sunday, May 6
~ Half marathon on Sunday, May 6

I am running with Paws Over Pittsburgh, the team for Humane Animal Rescue, where I am a volunteer dog walker. I am running the first leg of the relay with our North Shore shelter team, Jogs for Dogs. The doggos are my world, and I am so happy to give back to them!!

I also like lifting heavy, going to spin class at Cyclebar North Hills, and doing workout tapes (especially Richard Simmons) at home. I work out every day, even if it's just a quick one to keep going.

I love to write, dance, and am also a die-hard Erin Condren Planner girl. I play World of Warcraft (my main is a balance/resto Night Elf Druid), although I don't have nearly as much time for it as I wish I did! I have an adorable little black pitbull named Layla Grace.

I am *also* a huge foodie. That's part of the problem lol. But I am trying to work on eating healthy for most of my life, so that I can really enjoy those delicious dinners out.

My Goals:
Get beastly huge muscles. PR at the 2018 Pittsburgh half - under 2:10 goal.

My Program:
Food: Meal plan in my Carrie Elle Meal Planner. Trying to avoid processed foods as much as possible. Cook at home a lot, eat fresh & local stuff. Purchase all meat from known local ranches. NO GRAZING. Using my FitBit as a guide to daily calorie amounts.

Exercise: strength training 2 times a week, cardio every day for 20+ minutes.

Personal Information:
I used to be a dancer. My brain still thinks my stomach is in a dancer's body (it's not). I still love dancing, and I like running quite a bit, even though I'm not that great at it yet. I am a retired karaoke star.

Other Information:
I'm a total gym rat. I love working out, and I'll try pretty much any exercise (although I get a little skeptical about some of the hyped-up stuff).

I write several blogs:
