“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” ~Lao Tzu


Word. I’m Erica. I live at the beach, where I used to run a lot. Then I had a kid. Now I run a little (but I’d like to run a lot). I train big people, coach little people, and feed one tiny person (and a dog). In between working part time, diapering, playing, walking, running, and feeding, I do a lot of research on a wide variety of topics. This blog is a way for me to share some of that research and my own experiences with you. It’s also a way for you to check out the services I offer. Achieving personal health and fitness is a lifelong journey, not a destination. Let’s share the stoke and together, I can help YOU make strides on your journey towards your true potential.
