About

A Running Tally was created in 2011 with the intent of chronicling my personal continuous improvement efforts in hopes it might be of inspirational use to you on your own journey. I focus a lot on health and fitness goals in this blog, but other topics are also included.


I am an engineer, wife, sister, daughter, and a child of God. My nearly 30 years of life experience have taught me much, and perhaps most importantly, how much I have yet to learn. On a personality level, I fall into the INTJ (Introverted iNtuitive Thinking Judging) category (for you Myers-Briggs enthusiasts). I bring an inquisitive approach to life, and I value both analytical and experiential data, which is reflected in my career choice of engineer. The overarching question I have is this: "Does it work, and why or why not?" The next question is: "How can we make it better?" I am a firm believer in continuous improvement, and I try to apply that belief to my everyday life.
