about: My name is Jessica, but most people know me as Jess. Starting this blog was a no-brainer. I cook a lot and run even more, so I thought it would be fun to share my recipes, running stories, training tips, and encouragement with others. Without further ado –

welcome to Eat Happy Run Healthy!

in a nutshell: I’m a runner with a spice for life and an active appetite. My husband, Kevin, and I live in Seattle, WA with our furry kids, Detroit and Vegas. I’m the Community Programs Coordinator at Brooks Sports.

me in 4 words: Tall. Loud. Redheaded. Runner. 

activities i love: If I’m not in the kitchen or out on a run, I’m most likely eating, coaching, sleeping, hanging with friends & family, volunteering, doing something creative with Kevin, traveling, date nighting, or face down in a cookbook.

a peek behind the apron: Mr. Lyons is the creative mastermind behind all our videos and my #1 taste tester. I come up with the recipes, we get creative in the kitchen, and he makes magic happen in the editing room. Here’s my no-so-shameless plug for his video production company – yesandvideo. I also cross-over and spend time with his business as well – Jess Lyons, Producer – so you never know when I might show up on set.

want to know more about me? Dig into the blog. It’s where I spill the beans and bare it all. Here are some teasers to whet your palette:

my rave run: San Sebastián, Spain
favorite marathon: Marine Corps Marathon
go-to running shoes: #1 Brooks Glycerin, #2 Brooks Launch, #3 Brooks Cascadia
most craved food: almond butter (here’s a link to my recipe)
