IMG_1059 1I am a twenty-something living and studying in DC. I study conflict resolution and am passionate about social justice issues. I am a runner, nutrition nerd, graduate student and environmentalist. I will blog about these topics…with a heavy bias toward running posts.

As of the fall of 2013, I’ve done 5 half marathons, a sprint triathlon and one marathon. I run slowly. I ride my bike when I can. I swim whenever I can convince myself to get to the gym. I love strength training, but don’t do it enough. And I’m working on convincing myself that yoga is okay.

I love to eat, but am fructose and lactose intolerant so my recipes are often modified with lots of substitutions. Basically this means very little processed food and a watchful eye on everything I eat.
