IMG_0072Hello and happy day to you! If you are reading this, it means that you have stumbled upon my blog. Welcome and thanks for reading! My name is Ashley (also known as RatherBeRunnin’) and I am a thirty-something runner from San Luis Obispo, Ca. I have been blogging since 2012 and running since 2008.

Allow me to tell you a little about my blog… I definitely have my own unique writing style. I know that life isn’t easy and I don’t pretend that it is, but I think it’s important to remain positive and “keep it real”.

Running continues to teach me new things every day and I enjoy sharing those lessons with my readers. Every Wednesday, I post a motivational photo (called Inspirational Wednesdays) and (almost) every Friday, I post a recipe or talk about something food related (I call it Foodie Friday). I love to recap the races that I run, (check out my race calendar… I run a lot!) and review new products that I am fortunate enough to be able to test out. Sometimes I ramble, sometimes I have thought provoking things to share, and sometimes I just write for the sake of writing- whatever the post, whatever the day, I can promise you that you WILL be entertained.

To read my blog, click on the category tabs at the top of this page and find something that peaks your interest or search for a specific topic on the right. If you like what I have to say, feel free to follow me and stay up to date on my latest posts.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon!
