Amanda is a slow runner, occasional healthy eater, blogger, event planner and Boston Terrier lover. Against the odds, she runs after 5 knee surgeries, asthma and a heart condition. She is proof that the only barriers you encounter are the ones you place on yourself.
Amanda began running in 2010 and hasn't looked back since. She is not an elite athlete but tries her best at a sport she loves. She is constantly working to make herself a better person through healthy living and exercise. She struggles with both, but is constantly reminding herself that tomorrow is new day. After running over 50 area races over the past three years, including six half marathons and one marathon, you can say running is her favorite form of exercise
She has an amazingly supportive husband and family, without them she wouldn't be the person she is today. More info on Amanda can be found at www.therearetwosides.com
