Meet Mindy, Kristen, and Jillian!
My name is Mindy and I am the voice behind the blog www.roadrunnergirl.com. I love to run and half marathon races are my favorite! I’m also a fan of coffee (especially Starbucks frapps) and runDisney! I started running a few years after having my two boys to become healthier and because I was ready to be a good role model to them on how to live an active and healthy lifestyle. When I first started running I didn’t know that I would fall in love with it! It has definitely changed my life for the better! I love sharing my passion for running with other women. I am an officer of a running group that trains ladies to run…whether it be a 5K or a half marathon. I believe that if I can do it, so can you!
I love having the perfect outfit for my run! Cute BAMR Bands are a must to complete the look!
I have a bachelor’s degree in Primary Education. I’m currently a preschool teacher and love every minute of it! I love to teach, encourage and motivate others to be the best that they can be!

Kristen Van Horn
My name is Kristen and I blog at theconcreterunner.com. I am a middle school physical education teacher and coach, as well as the mom of two beautiful children (MacKenna – 3, Miles – 8 months). When I’m not working or spending time with my family, you can find me hitting the concrete, training for my next race. I am a competitive 5K runner, but love to run races of any distance. Running and fitness are my passion, and I am constantly striving to become a better runner and athlete, all while being a positive role model for my kids and students.

Hi everyone! 🙂
My name is Jillian, I’m 23 years old, and I live in Nova Scotia, Canada! I’m a Marine Biologist! I studied at Dalhousie University for my undergrad, and I’m currently studying at Acadia University for my Masters of Science in Biology! I like to describe myself as an adventure seeker, optimist, world traveller, animal lover, and country music fanatic. I currently have 2 pets – a cat named Oscar and a dog named GP!
Anyway, onto the running part of my life! Running has always been a huge factor in my life. It wasn’t until July 2011 that I completed my first road race (the Tely 10 in Newfoundland). I had run other races for track and cross country all through high school, but road races were new to me! After that race, I was hooked on racing. I have now moved onto running marathons, and loving every minute of it!
In November 2013, I was in a severe car accident that resulted in a serious concussion. I was unable to run for almost 6 months and was essentially on bedrest the majority of that time. It’s taken almost 2 years for me to recover and be back to feeling comfortable with my running and my pace. I am no where close to where I want to be, but I am a heck of alot closer than where I was!
Here are my race stats:
42.2 (full marathon) x 2
21.1 (half marathon) x 5
10km x 3
5km x 9
Other distances x 9
