Maintaining a healthy balance in life has always been a priority of mine. While I love running and training for a marathon, I also crave social experiences and time spent with loved ones, including my fiancé, family, and good friends.
I enjoy running with friends as a way to combine my two passions, but it is not always possible. Work is also priority, so I often try to combine running with work such as run-commuting to and from the office.
As far as diet, I usually stick to the 80/20 rule; eating healthy, balanced meals 80% of the time, 20% of the time is spared for indulgences such as ice cream and wine. (Both I could never live without!) I am a believer of eating with moderation and following this kind of diet, along with exercise, has worked well for me.
