Hi, my name is Marissa. I'm a 21 year old Boston College 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?
This is what someone said to me today who I haven’t talked to/seen in a while. He also ran the marathon when he was a BC student.
He didn’t say I looked “skinny” or “like I lost weight” or “good” or “small”.
He said really fit!!
I think this is definitely something to be proud of. :) I was having an awful day and this definitely made me feel a bit better.
I really pushed myself on my work out today. I ran a 25:20 5K, biked for 5 miles and worked on my abs and legs. I was really sweating and feeling good, totally letting stress and depressed thoughts melt off of me (for the most part).
A little while ago I had my post workout snack:
Mmm, peanut butter. :)
