Anna [ah-nuh] noun ME

Hello readers..and welcome to my blog!

I started Anna’s Adventures in Health [AAH] as an outlet for all the wonderful things I get to experience and learn as I continue on my way leading a healthy happy lifestyle! I post on anything and everything from workouts, new recipes, fun facts, and random life experiences.

I graduated from James Madison University in May 2012 (Go Dukes!) with a B.S. in Dietetics.  In August I started an 11 month dietetic internship in order to receive my Registered Dietitian certification.  I was not your ‘traditional student’ though as I discovered my passion for nutrition a bit later in life than others.  I have a B.S. in Business Administration and worked in Northern Virginia for a couple of years before deciding to go back to school at JMU.

You can read more about that in the Start of Something Great.

While I am excited about a career in Dietetics I am also passionate about fitness.  I’ve competed in 7 triathlons and many running races and just completed my first marathon last December.  Beyond training for races, I lift weights several times a week, take spin class, and even try to add yoga in the mix.  I enjoy exploring the town, especially the back roads for biking, farmers markets on the weekend, trail running, or coffee shop downtown.  I love food, music, a good book (and pretending to have intelligent conversations about them with my “book club”).

Health [helth] noun the general condition of the body or mind with reference to soundness and vigor: vitality.

I hope you’ll stick around on my adventure!
