A native Kansan (now located in Portland), Kirsten has been an athlete her entire life. Before running, she fueled her competitive spirit with sports like soccer, volleyball and gymnastics. By day, she works in Marketing. When Kirsten is not at her desk, she’s often training or sharing her sweat adventures via @ClassPass. Health and wellness are her passion. Her goal is to provide an a-z guide to boutique fitness and other workouts.
Kirsten is a runner at heart and that is why she is a proud Garmin Ambassador. She runs destination marathons multiple times a year. She has crossed finish lines in San Francisco, LA, Portland, Chicago and other locations. As a non-fitness professional, she started blogging to share her fitness journey in hopes that others would take the leap too and conquer similar challenges all while learning to love + appreciate the skin they’re in. Her stance has also been focused on giving back to the community. In 2016 she held three charity workout events to raise funds for the Victory Project as well as involvement with Yoga on the Pitch & Indulge KC for REbel. She and her then fiancé, Chance Myers were awarded 2016 Humanitarians of Year via Sporting Kansas City.
Wtfartlek.com (What the Fartlek) covers fit fashion, healthy eats, charitable causes, boutique fitness and running with the focus on helping others make healthier choices all while discovering the best version of themselves.
What the…? The blog title is a play on words, with fartlek being a running term. I know, it makes me giggle too.
