Meet the Girl Behind the Blog

This is my world – faith, family, fitness and food!

My name is Sarah, I’m the author of How My World Runs. I am 41, married for 21 years. We have one daughter. I started this blog for myself, a place to write how I lost weight and started running, it turned into something I love!

We have 2 dogs, you’ll see snippets of them here from time to time. Our daughter, Ally, runs with her high school cross country and track team. We are involved in our town and church. I am a believer in Christ, my family as well. I believe that fitness is a part of faith. That God intended for me to be healthy and to be an example to those around me.

I have crazy, naturally curly hair.  I use a lot of different products, but my favorite is Deva Curl. (affiliate link)

I started running in September 2011 after walking off 30 pounds. I ran off the last 10 or so. I never thought at my age that I’d have something to be this proud of. I run to set an example for my daughter. I run for my health. I run to compete against my old self, the out of shape self, to prove to her that I don’t have to be her anymore.

Fast forward to 2016, my husband and I started eating Keto. We were both working out 5-6 days a week but were gaining weight. After his research and my doctor saying maybe it’s the carbs, I gave it a shot! We are one year in and doing well! Here’s a post about that.

Here are two of my posts about how I started this journey.

I can’t believe I’m posting this picture, but here I am October 2010, 40 plus pounds over weight. Sadly this picture wasn’t enough to get me active until June 2011.

Here I am November 2011, down 3 sizes and probably 30 pounds.

And March 2012, down 42 pounds!

December 24, 2012, keeping it off!


Join me on my journey. I hope to encourage you and learn something along the way!
