HI! I’m Alyssa.

I currently reside in Richmond, Virginia with my black lab/running buddy, Chloe. She’s got the biggest zest for life you’ve ever seen.

It’s true what they say about running being cheaper than therapy. And I’ll even reference that fantastic Legally Blonde quote, “Exercise gives you endorphins; endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands.”

When I’ve laced up my Brooks and am pounding the pavement, I’m in my happy place. I am also an avid spinner and barre belle. I’ve found my passion in fitness, and I’ve completed a marathon and 8 half marathons.

You can probably find me working out most days at a myriad of different times. Even, perhaps… in a parking lot? In flip flops? Don’t make it weird. That was a strange day.


I’d consider brownie batter, wine, and smiles the perfect diet (hey, one’s calorie free). And that’s kind of a lie, because most of my homemade dinners are made up entirely of veggies.

I’m a (mostly) healthy girl with unhealthy adoration for online shopping, musical theatre, and ridiculous costumes.

Corny as it may sound, my blog is meant to capture all that is “blyssful” in my life. From great runs to my adventures in nutrition to my crazy misadventures, I cover it all.

So gimme a ring if you need some sass, enthusiasm, wine glasses, a Broadway song, or a good laugh. Or an inordinate amount of Anchorman/Wedding Crashers/Stepbrothers quotes.

I’m always down to lend all of the above.
