Hi everyone! And an extra special welcome to my fellow Grow Your Blog blog hop members! Today I’m getting the chance to “meet” a lot of other Sweat Pink Ambassadors who are interested in finding new blogs to follow, and I was thinking about what I might want to know if I came across this blog for the first time ever. And then I realized that because I’m usually blogging about running and hiking and other fitness stuff, there’s so much I don’t get to share about me with my readers. So today I decided to share some facts about me – one for every letter in the alphabet! Here’s the ABCs of Run Away With Me:
A – I moved up to Anchorage, AK last year and absolutely love living here!
B – I have a slight obsession with books. There is nothing better than cuddling up with a blanket and coffee while reading a good book, am I right?
C – Coffee is a necessity in my life. I like it either black or in a PSL 🙂
D – The 2014 Disney Princess Half Marathon was my first half ever. I dressed up like Ariel! You can find that fun recap here.
E – I really love to eat! For the past 7 weeks I’ve been eating clean while doing the Whole Life Challenge and have been loving how a life without sugar (and bread, pasta, dairy, and any weird added ingredients) feels. But once it ends on Friday I might add in some dairy again, mostly for pizza. Pizza is my favorite thing on earth ❤
F – Fall is my favorite season! I love the cool weather and changing leaves.
Fall in the Yukon!
G – I have been wearing glasses since 4th grade. But you’ll never see a picture of that because it’s really uncomfortable to workout in glasses. Contacts for the win!
H – I’m a huge Harry Potter fan. Going to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Florida was so awesome!
Drinking a butterbeer in front of Hogwarts!
I – In case you want to connect with me, I’m over on Instagram and Twitter at @runawaywithkk
J – I’m kind of obsessed with John Mayer. I think I’ve seen him in concert 4 times!
K – The only nickname I’ve ever had is Krissy, and only my grandpa was allowed to call me that.
L – My current half marathon PR is from the Love Run Half in Philly. I feel like I’m on an eternal quest to beat my time of 2:30!
M – John Muir is my inspiration in life. If you’ve never read any of his books, go do it! The mountains are definitely always calling me.
N – If you ever see me watching sports, it’s going to be the NHL. I’m a big Philadelphia Flyers fan and have gone to too many games to count!
O – I’m the oldest sibling in my family and have one little sister.
P – I grew up outside Philadelphia and spent most of my 20s living right on the West Philly border. I definitely get homesick sometimes.
Q – My quickest 5k was 28:41. Sub-30s are hard!
R – This letter was super easy – I’m a runner and super proud of it!

S – I’m kind of obsessed with snow. It’s snowing right now and I can’t stop looking outside like a little kid!
T – I teach health education for a non profit and absolutely love my job.
U – I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh undergrad. Hail to Pitt!
V – My favorite vacation spot is Bar Harbor, ME. I really want to run a half there someday.

W – I’d take winter over summer any day!
X – You definitely won’t see me in Xtratufs anytime soon because I HATE being out on the ocean. I get seasick!
Y – My favorite color is yellow
Z – I’m not a morning workout person – I love my extra ZZZZs in the morning!
