A native Kansan (now located in Portland), Kirsten has been an athlete her entire life. Before running, she fueled her competitive spirit with sports like soccer, volleyball and gymnastics. With all the options out there these days, fitness can be fun! She aims to expand views on fitness so people feel inspired to try something new.
Kirsten is a runner at heart and that is why she is a proud Garmin Ambassador. She runs destination marathons multiple times a year. She has crossed finish lines in San Francisco, LA, Portland, Chicago, Vancouver, B.C. and other locations. As a non-fitness professional, she started blogging to share her fitness journey in hopes that others would take the leap too and conquer similar challenges all while learning to love + appreciate the skin they’re in. Her stance has also been focused on giving back to the community. In 2016 she held charity workout events to raise funds for the Victory Project as well as involvement with Yoga on the Pitch & Indulge KC for REbel. She and her then fiancé, Chance Myers were awarded 2016 Humanitarians of Year via Sporting Kansas City. Peep her instagram to stay up-to-date on upcoming events.
