Welcome to RunningonChange! My name is Brooke and one of my greatest passions is running. I have been active since I was a kid playing, soccer, lacrosse, basketball, softball etc… in high school I played soccer and lacrosse and during the summers our soccer team would train with the cross country team but I never really picked up on running competitively until I was in my twenties.

Running has been my go to stress relief/weight loss tool and it is something that I have become really passionate about. Two years ago I embarked on what will be one of the best decisions I have ever made I joined weight watchers and lost 70 pounds. Running was the one thing that carried me through that difficult time in my life, it was my go to activity to make sure that I stayed on track with my weight loss and eventually it became my addiction. I love to eat healthy, but I have my bad days sometimes.
