"I am from Southern California, I have lived here my whole life and although I think about living in other places, I love the idea that I can run in shorts 365 days a year here!  I worked in the fitness industry as a Trainer and Group Exercise Instructor along side my full time work which is what kept my fire lit in the health and fitness industry.

I have been a runner since high school although I took some time off during my pregnancies - I had my two boys 23 months apart! After they were born I became a certified Spinning Instructor alongside working in Marketing & Business Development and Marathon Training. I had a goal to run another 26.2 after having kids! My boys have served as constant motivation for me to be the best version of myself!  I've run 32 Half Marathons across the years and 5 full Marathons with my 5th being my first BQ!

I shared my post baby weight loss journey (of 70 lbs) though Instagram and was surrounded with endless motivation & support. That's actually where I came across Handful!  I was immediately drawn to their bright colors and fun patterns, I love putting together my running outfits almost as much as running, and these bras have been a perfect and practical obsession for me!  They are so comfortable and supportive for any thing from lounging on the couch to running 26.2 miles -  I wear them all the time, not just for running!"
