Press

It feels kind of silly that I have a need for a "Press" tab on my blog! ;) My weight loss and blog have gotten some media attention, so I will post that stuff here.

Runner's World Magazine
I was featured in the April 2014 issue of Runner's World magazine, along with my Ragnar Relay Florida Keys teammates. This was SO exciting for me! I love RW.





Woman's World Magazine
I was featured in Woman's World magazine (the March 31, 2014 issue) for my weight loss story--the fact that I lost the weight while eating foods that I love:

Fitness Magazine

I was extremely honored to be selected by Fitness Magazine as "Best Weight Loss Blog" in their Fitterati awards. Twelve bloggers were named "Fitterati", and we contribute to a blog on the Fitness website, which you can find here.


I also appeared in Fitness Magazine after winning the award:



Local newspaper
Twice, I've appeared on the front page of my local newspaper (I come from a VERY small town) in regards to my weight loss, my appearance on The Dr. Oz Show, and the production of From Fat to Finish Line, a documentary currently in the works.



 The Today Show, airing on 1/10/2013. Here is the clip from the show (about 5 minutes) and some photos. It was SUCH a fun experience!
