I’m Stephanie, I’m 28 and I love to run, eat, drink craft beer, and my husband and I have a stuffed monkey, Bongo.

I started running on the treadmill in 2008 because I was trying to get healthy and lose some unwanted pounds. Before I knew it, I was running 2 miles at a time and signed up for a 5K. I’ve been addicted to racing ever since. I’ve run over 30 races and I’m still going strong. This year I will be running my 2nd marathon at the NYC Marathon on November 4th.

I absolutely LOVE food and beer. I’m a huge foodie and love to try new things and visit new places. My husband and I keep our kitchen stocked with beer at all time. What can I say, we’re beer geeks! I love to cook and bake, but I don’t do it nearly enough. My favorite ethnic food is definitely Indian, I love spicy foods and I have a huge sweet tooth that cannot resist cookies.

I graduated college with a degree in Film Production, but things have changed since moving to New York City in 2009. I currently have a full time job at a post-production television company in Manhattan, while also maintaining 2 blogs. Obviously, I write here, but I also am the Head Editor over at IReallyLikeFood, which is a blog about anything and everything food.

I recently got married in September 2011 to the love of my life, Derek. We were together exactly 8 years before we tied the knot and I’m so excited to spend the rest of my life with him.


  1. Hey Stephanie,

    Great blog! I also very much share your passion for good beer and horror movies 🙂

    Can’t wait to read on!


  2. Hey Stephanie,

    I love your blog. I just started a running/food blog myself and am enjoying reading what other people have to say about it (especially fellow NYers)! Keep up the good work.


  3. Hey! Just came across your blog and wanted to say that I really like it! I have some catching up to do!

  4. Hey Stephanie…great to find you…I have to say that your wedding was the best of the season!! My best to you and say hi to Derek,,,CHEERS!

  5. Stephanie.

    I love your blog, and your photos on Instagram but after reading your “about me” section and having a little tear roll down my face I love it and you even more. You and Derek remind me so much of my wife Ashley and I. These reasons help further validate my nominating/awarding you the “One Lovely Blog Award”. Hopefully you will swing by my blog at and read more about me, my life, and the award. I look forward to reading more of your posts in the near future.
