Mom, runner and nurse
Hi my name is Toni and above all else I am a mom who is married to her best friend. I am also a registered nurse with a passion for running, health and fitness. I have been passionate about running and fitness since I was 19, but my passions were put on the back-burner while I started my family and went to nursing school. After the birth of my second daughter, in 2008, I fell back in love with fitness and running while working to get my pre-baby body back. My life today is all about balancing my family life, my work as a nurse, my blog and my passion for running and everything fitness related. It is not always easy to fit it all in but when I take care of myself I can take care of everyone else that much better. I have always wanted to run the New York City Marathon and this year on November 4th I will finally get the opportunity. My goal is to finish this race, uninjured and hopefully in under five hours! After I finish the marathon the sky is the limit and who knows what my next adventure will be, but I certainly plan on continuing to push myself and setting an example for other mothers. I plan to make the next year of life the best one yet, so follow me on Real Health as I share stories of living my life to the fullest while inspiring others to do the same. You can also follow my adventures on Running, Loving, Living, on Twitter at @tonee78, and on Facebook.
