Welcome to Skinny Chick Blog!
My name is Jacqueline or just J for short, but never Jackie.
I live in Mountain View, CA with my husband Mike and Jack Russell, Bam.
I love cycling, pizza, cupcakes, racing, wearing yoga pants every day, not doing my hair, photography, beach days, coffee, running and my family. In that order, but backwards.
Running is my passion and I believe that race bling is the only acceptable form of wind chimes.
Here you will read my ramblings about my love of torturing myself by training hard, coffee, daily adventures, and the extremes I go to stay outdoors as much as possible. I am convinced that I’m solar powered.
I’m your middle of the pack runner, everyday chick who pours my heart into this little running passion of mine. I also deal with injuries and other issues. I’m not superwoman (yet!) and may never be a marathoner, but I can relate to other runners who strive to be their best, reach for PR’s while still living life, dealing with life issues and drinking an embarrassing amount of coffee.
As of 2013 I am officially off the broken runner list after struggling with the injury punks off & on for about 2 years. With the help of my PT ninja and a lot of dedication to strength training I am finally able to torture myself as I please. Bring on the hurt, but only the good kind mmmkay.
I am a horrible cook and as Mike lovingly say’s I could burn water so I stick to easy, healthy meals. I use the word “healthy” loosely because I was diagnosed with IBS C last fall and a big part of managing it is through a medium fiber diet. But the words medium fiber and healthy is like an oxymoron, so I’m working on finding the right balance that works for me. It’s so fun.
I hope you’re sensing my sarcasm.
My goals are to stay in half marathon shape, crush PR’s, stay injury free, and be thankful for the simple things while offering you free entertainment & encouragement along the way.
I write like I talk. So if you’re confused, just think blonde.
I enjoy hanging out with you guys, virtually or in real life, so feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Promise I’m only socially awkward in person. Okay that might be a lie.
I hate rules, I don’t even know why I’m making these up. Oh yeah it’s for those people.
- There’s no crying in running. Crybabies will be banned and get the SCB beat down. Whatever that is.
- If something offends you on the blog, please bring it to our attention so we can all laugh at you.
