Hi there! I’m so glad you’ve taken the time to stop by Sweet Miles. I’m a full time working mom, married to my college sweetheart, as well as a blogger, photographer, and fitness enthusiast. I wear many hats, but motherhood by far is my favorite.

We have one daughter, born in October 2015. I blogged throughout my entire pregnancy, and haven’t stopped blogging our pride and joy. We had a blast revealing her gender to our families, which you can watch and read all about here. There’s nothing better than navigating first time parenthood with your best friend, and so far I’d say we are doing a pretty good job!
I also blogged Adeline’s birth story, which you can read here. We are blessed beyond measure, and so thankful for a wonderful birth experience.
She has since morphed into the sweetest and most fun little girl. Life with a toddler is anything but boring and she’s regularly featured on the blog. I love documenting her adventures, milestones, and everything in between.
I originally started Sweet Miles as a way to document my running journey, races, and overall fitness. I covered a lot of miles, and I loved being a devoted member of the running community. In my running days I completed 2 marathons, 7 half marathons, and dozens of shorter races.
Since becoming a mom though, running is becoming less and less a priority, and instead I’m focusing on maintaining an active lifestyle, embracing my new role as a mom, and finding balance with everything I do. I’ve learned there are many miles in life, not just the miles you travel as a runner.
On this blog, you will find my (hopefully) humble attempts at staying active and healthy as I journey through motherhood. I often review fun products, share our family’s favorite recipes, document my daughter’s milestones, and try to motivate others through easily replicated workouts.

The sweetest miles in life are just beginning. I’d love to have you along for the ride!
