Beat The Blerch Seattle 2016

Hi there!  Thanks for visiting my blog.

My name is Pollie.

I am an Ecuadorian girl living in Washington, the Evergreen State, with my husband, our two kids and Kobe-Wan Kenobi, our crazy Havaton pup.

I love food, real food, wholesome and healthy meals, but sadly I’ve had gastrointestinal issues since I was in my early twenties (or earlier, I can’t even remember).  From vegetarian, to vegan to eating a gluten free diet, I’ve changed my eating habits more times than I can count without seeing major improvements.  At times, it seems like a lost battle but I continue to look for ways to heal my gut.

As part of following a healthy lifestyle, both mentally and physically, I started running when I was pregnant with my daughter and now I have two kids (both teenagers).  Running has become a part of me.  I don’t think of myself as a “real runner” but I sure do love it.  I started racing in 2013 and I’ve ran a couple of 5ks, many 10ks, a couple of 15ks, and a few half marathons.  I would really love to run a full marathon but between our full time jobs, kids’ school and their extra curricular activities, it really leaves little time for me to train.  Maybe soon?

Life is not always easy but I definitely make every attempt to make the best of it.

Thank you for joining me in this journey!

May you find peace and love in everything you do!
