Hi, my name is Marissa. I'm a 22 year old Boston College graduate student and marathon runner. I have a passion for fitness, running and nutrition as well as music, art, concerts, playing instruments, marching band, cheerleading, fashion, Neuroscience, Psychology, cooking, Boston, movies and of course certain tv shows (The OC and One Tree Hill in particular).

This blog is for things that I like and also to inspire a healthy lifestyle for myself and others. I love sharing interesting things with the world and hope that I can help people along the way.


My goal is to get healthy and REMAIN healthy for life - Eat better, exercise, and just be the best version of myself. Just watch me.

This is your life. Are you who you want to be?

 

Sometimes,
I feel like ripping apart my skin,
and searching for a reason for why
I feel this empty.
Maybe my veins are tangled,
or something is lodged
in my ribcage.
Because it feels like
something inside of me is
missing or broken.

what doesn’t kill you
leaves scars
ruins your lungs
dries out all your tears
leaves you lying awake at 4 in the morning
wishing you weren’t alive

I wish being happy wasn’t so hard.

 I wish there are things that I just never found out. 

10 Yasso 800 meter repeats tonight all within 3:40, last one in 3:18. Yesterday I was crippled with anxiety and unable to do anything, but today I did this. Countdown to Wakefield marathon: 16 days
