About Me

Welcome to The Hungry Runner Girl.  My name is Janae and I kind of really like running a whole lot.    My blog is all about running, fitness, food, family and anything else that I feel the need to tell you about.

I really and truly love to run and I have been running since I was 12 years old.  I didn’t start getting into racing until 2010 when I ran my first marathon, the Salt Lake Marathon, and finished as the fifth woman overall.  I was instantly hooked on wanting to train hard and get faster and ever since then I have been chasing a sub-3 marathon and I have a feeling that 2013 will be my year to get that goal.

Another huge passion of mine is food.  I love to bake, go out to eat and take pictures of my food to share with you on the blog.  I will always have a deep love for candy, Cafe Rio, ice cream, ginormous salads, baked potatoes and steak.

I hope you enjoy my blog and I guess if you don’t that’s okay too.  Just don’t get frustrated with all of my grammatical errors.
