I was able to get in a glorious run this AM with the run club…it was quite chilly I have to say but the day has shaped up to be a beautiful one! 78 degrees practically feels like freakin’ springtime. Thank you Texas and mother nature.
So we are getting back to the basics today! Since it is a new year and we may have some new readers joining us I thought I’d do a fun little ‘about me’ type of survey. I have to thank Bethany over at Simmering Mind for the idea. Hope you enjoy!
Name: Chelsea Ross
Age: 32…or is that 21? Nah, 32. Like a fine wine I get better with age. Flirty thirties is the best.
Food: Sushi, wine (YES IT IS A FOOD JUST GO WITH IT), cheese and chocolate.
Drink: Water, chai tea with almond milk, coffee, kombucha.
Book: The Coldest Winter Ever by Sister Souljah
Song: Spanish Joint by D’Angelo
Movie: Love Jones. Highly recommended.
Band: Oh…good question. My taste in music is pretty diverse and since I teach spin class I’m always listening to and looking for new music. So, probably too many to name just one.
Solo Artist: See ‘band’ answer above.
Place: The open roads or a beautiful trail to get my run on.
Subject: All things running, fitness, beauty and nutrition.
Sport: Basketball would probably by my favorite sport to watch.
Actor: Boris Kodjoe simply because he is a beautiful man.
Actress: Jennifer Lawrence
Schooling: Graduated college in 2006 (I’m OLD -in fact I’m so old I had to correct myself just now because I put ’02 initially instead of ’06!! Good gracious) with a Bachelor of Arts degree in broadcast journalism. Best decision I’ve ever made. I’m in love with my job working behind the scenes as a Promotions Producer in television. I write promos and commercials for Christian television. (I know, I know, I NEVER talk about work! But yes, fitness is my side hustle. TV is my career. Now you know.)
BF: Best friend? Boyfriend?? Not sure what this means. I am currently single after having been with someone for close to 5 years. It was not an easy breakup (it has been a super hot MINUTE too since the breakup–so I’m truly okay!! Some of you may remember) but I wish him the best. I’ve been off and on dating since then and I actually love it. Living life, meeting people, having fun. The end.
Political ideology: HA…we won’t get into all of that. Moving right along…
Tattoos: Sun on my lower back. It’s a tramp stamp. Don’t judge. I was 18 and young and silly! Sometimes I forget it’s even there.
Piercings: Double piercing on both ears.
Languages: English, took a few Spanish classes…I took a French class in college and it was super hard! I need to get back to trying to learn it again soon.
Reason behind your blog name: When I first started the blog I was teaching dance classes at 24 Hour Fitness, it was my first gig as a group fitness instructor. I loved it at the time and also was training for a marathon. So I thought ‘thedancingrunner’ was a fitting name. I teach spin class/indoor cycling now and have since taken a hiatus from teaching dance. BUT…I still dance on my BIKE so I kept the name.
Why you blog: I love connecting with like minded people from all over the world…and promoting fitness and having FUN while working hard. Yes, it is possible to do both!
