About Me

My name is Krysty, and I live in Minneapolis, MN with my Boyfriend, Fiance,  Husband, Jeff a.k.a. The Amazing Jeff, a.k.a. the Hubby or the Husband.  We will soon be adding a new member to our family this fall, She is now known as The Bump, but her name is Hadley,  and we could not be more excited!

UPDATE: Auska sadly left us on April 19th 2013.  Her poor little body had some serious medical issues that she could not fight.  We miss her everyday.  RIP sweet baby.

I started this blog during my training for my first half marathon with Team in Training.  I wanted to write about my experience training, and learning about this thing called running… I had never considered myself an athlete of any kind.  I literally went from couch to half marathon in 5 months.  You can read about my Minneapolis Half Marathon here.  Along the way this blog has undergone some changes, all for the better.  I want to write more about the training, eating right and exercise, and more about life in general since now I find myself unemployed like many of my fellow Americans.  So with the changes of life, this blog is now more of a money-saving, weight-loss-journey, adventures-in-being-a-SAHW/M sort of blog.  But I am just fine with that.  I could not love my life more right now.

I also started to make some handmade gifts and accessories, originally for fundraising for TNT, but now hope to actually make it work for steady income.  I have named it K@tastrophy Designs, you can read more about that here, and here.  I like to fancy myself a crafty, and creative individual.  And K@tastrophy is a way for me to display that and share it with the world!

  1. ha — you are totally right! I saw your blog name and immediately stopped by. I would totally run for wine too.

  2. Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I have nominated your blog for the Very Inspirational Blogger Award!

  3. Your site is absolutely amazing! I have just been made aware of it (via pinterest) and am trying to catch up. You are such an inspiration and so helpful with all the information you are willing to share. You aren’t hesitant to put it out there and answer questions that, sometimes, we don’t want to ask. THANK YOU! And I look forward to much more 🙂

    1. Hi Jackie!! Thanks for stopping by and thanks for your kind words! You totally get me…I tell it like it is. No use in sugar coating it! 🙂
