Emily is a runner, blogger, heavy things lifter and accountant living in Blue Ash, OH, suburb of Cincinnati. She is the mom of Addison, born in August 2013, dog mom to Teek and Zeus, and wife of Jason. Emily is originally from Toledo and is a graduate of Central Catholic, where she hated running, even just the mile that she might need to run for softball conditioning.

Emily ran her first 5K in 2009 when her friend signed her up to run the Race for the Cure, knowing that she would not be able to back out once the money was paid. After that, she slowly started running more races, until eventually she was hooked running her first (and only SO FAR!) marathon in 2011. She took a short break from running in the summer of 2013 when she was too pregnant to feel comfortable running. Now, Addie joins her in her stroller for lots of runs.
