Hi! My name is Chelsea. I love to run, eat delicious food, and drink red wine and bourbon. I just finished my PhD in Reading Education (December 2018 is my graduation. I currently teach adjunct courses for two universities. I resigned from my full-time teaching job at the end of the school year in May of 2017. I was a reading specialist for two years for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. Before that, I was a classroom teacher for three years. During those five years as a teacher, I was also a full-time graduate student. It is a little strange no longer being in school...I don't think it has sunk in yet!
I have an amazing husband, Jake, who trains (running and riding) more than I do - hello ultras on ultras - and we both love to race. We have a perfect furbaby, Lulu, who you will see a lot of on here.
I hope you enjoy my blog! I look forward to getting to know you!

Our engagement video:
Jake, my husband (as of 5/26/18), proposed to me after he crossed the finish line of a 100 mile run. A family friend was able to get the whole thing on video, which you can see HERE. It was the best day!
