Hello! My name is Ashley Lynn and I am an almost 30-something living in beautiful, scenic PA. I wouldn't trade our PA winters or hills for anything- they make me a stronger runner-- especially in the Fall! I am a #teamsparkle lovin', Procompression wearing, ASICS-obsessed runner powered by Nuun Hydration and refueled by Chocolate Milk! I am once again an official 2018 Rock'N'Blogger gal! I sport Asics everywhere I go! I am also a fourth-year Nuun Hydration ambassador! I have a passion for running, yoga, snowboarding, SUP yoga, DISNEY, runDisney, and writing. I was bit by the running bug almost 7 years ago (2011) and I have happily "infected" several friends, family members, and "strangers" since. I have gotten my Dad, sister, and now husband to run their very first 5K's, and a good friend to run her very first half marathon and then her first FULL marathon! When I first started my running journey I couldn't run more than a 1/4 mile without having to stop. (Or cry). I have since run too many 5k's/10k's/odd-numbered k's to count, 10 half marathons, the Broad Street 10-miler, the Washington D.C. Cherry Blossom 10-miler, and 1 full- The Steamtown Marathon in September of 2014. I like destination races most. I am a #fivepeat to the Scranton Half Marathon and the Berwick Run for the Diamonds 9-miler. My past "big" races included the Runners World Hat trick in Bethlehem PA, the @rundisney Wine and Dine Half Marathon, and then the LAS VEGAS #stripatnight Rock'N'Roll half marathon that I won through an Instagram/Twitter contest! My first challenge started in 2015, when I set a steep #15in2015 race goal- although it turned more into a #25in2015 type of year. This year, I am aiming for #30in30 to celebrate turning 30! I have also happily organized a local 5k the past 4 years to give back to the community I grew up in- "Christmas in Conyngham Classic 5k/ 1-mile fun walk. Our journey has been nothing short of amazing! Check it out _here! You may know me as @ashleylynn411 on Twitter or agregory11 on Instagram. Send me a message or leave a post- I am happy to communicate and be part of the #werunsocial @werunsocial endeavor!
