Allie is a freelance writer, athlete and mom, but not in that order. Her work has appeared in Runner’s World, Women’s Running and ESPNW. On her blog – VITA Train for Life she chronicles her life as a runner and triathlete and hopes her successes and failures help to motivate and inspire others, even the over 40 crowd she somehow found herself in! The rest of her time is spent raising her twin boys with her husband in the Northeast where they live a big life! Join the party.
