Haaaay! I’m Lora. I can’t hear you over the sound of how awesome I am.
I’m a thirtysomething Pittsburgh native, still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. I live with my fiancé, Luke, and our two cats, Johnny & Kaya. I like Star Trek, big hair, Chipotle, marathon medals, liquid eyeliner, and crisp autumn days.
I’m obsessed with running. It has become absolutely vital to my mental and physical health – it’s helping me grow in ways I never imagined. I’m a multiple-marathoner and an ultramarathoner – in fact, I went from 5k to 50k in less than a year. I certainly don’t break any land-speed records, and I’m not sure that I’m even a middle-of-the-pack runner. I only race against myself.
In February 2011, I committed to a healthy lifestyle after spending the better part of my twenties overweight and/or obese, unhappy, inactive and clinically depressed. I have finally claimed my life as my own, instead of remaining a slave to a perpetual cycle of gluttony and sloth.
Please feel free to comment! I love making new blog friends.
