This blog is written and maintained by me, Annabelle Winters:I work as the Behavioral Services Director (and race director!) for a non-profit agency in Chicago that provides all manner of supports for adults who are experiencing developmental and/or intellectual disabilities.
I like to run. I’m self-coached, love social media, and when I’m not running or working, I’m usually reading, or searching for the next Scotch to try.
I live in Chicago with my fiancé, Jorge, and our two beloved Shi-Tzu’s, Lucinda and Penelope.
I chase Unicorns. I wear my passions and my values on my sleeve. I expect tolerance, compassion, kindness, and the pursuit of excellence from all people.
Please, as you read, keep in mind that everyone has individual health concerns that should be taken into consideration when beginning an exercise program or making changes to your diet. Although I have considerable experience in the mental health, and health & fitness arenas, I am not a physician, registered dietician, or licensed counselor.
