About Me

Hello! I'm Celia. I'm a runner, city dweller, and former small-town Iowan. My husband Kurt and I live on the northwest side of the city of Chicago and love outdoor activities, traveling, and trying new restaurants. I grew up on a family farm in northern Iowa. My parents' still farm and I get back to visit as often as I can. I have a background in journalism and law, and I currently work in the energy industry by day.


I started Chicago Jogger in August 2013, not long after my wedding. K and I got married in our favorite Midwest destination - Door County, Wisconsin. I spent most of my extra free time over 10 months planning this event, and once we were married I decided I needed a creative outlet as a hobby.


I have been a regular reader of healthy lifestyle, food, and fitness blogs for years and decided to focus Chicago Jogger on running, healthy recipes, and city living. I consider myself a lifelong casual runner and hope to motivate others to run, stay active and try healthy recipes more often. I started running on the middle school track team, and joined cross-country in high school. I wasn't winning any races {far from it} but participating resulted in friendships I still hold today.


Thank you for stopping by! I really appreciate the visit. Email me: chicagojogger@gmail.com. You can also connect with me on Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.
