I worked VERY hard during my years at Stanford and earned my B.A. in Psychology while participating on a team that finished 3rd overall in the Women’s College World Series.
Following graduation, I returned to my hometown and pursued my master’s degree while serving as an assistant softball coach for Creighton University.
Running kept me in shape, but I never raced. Then, I met Harmony who asked me to participate in a 100k relay. I never realized the community I would be introduced to.
After the race, I was inspired and began my blog Blonde Ponytail in an effort to record my fitness journey, connect virtually, and learn from others. You can read more about my races or my approach to training. I even inspired Spencer to run a couple races with me.
We have raised our game and tackled CrossFit. We love the challenge behind the workouts and the functional aspects of that training. It certainly keeps us humble!
Another frequent character on the blog, is my golden retriever, Cooper. You must love him or we are not friends.
Most recently, Spencer and I welcomed a baby girl to our family on June 11th. Meet Jada Ruth Allen.
The blog world and fitness community are simply amazing. I have met so many wonderful people in real life as a result. I also am honored to be a FitFluential ambassador, ReebokONE ambassador and an ambassador for NUUN.
