Welcome to Skinny Chick Blog!
My name is Jacqueline or just J.
I live in Monterey, CA with my husband Mike and Jack Russell, Bam.
I love pizza, racing, wearing yoga pants every day, not doing my hair, photography, beach days, cycling, coffee, running and my family. In that order, but backwards.
Running is my passion, though my feet won’t allow it these days. But I still believe that race bling is the only acceptable form of wind chimes.
Here you will read my ramblings about my love of torturing myself by training hard, coffee, adventures, and the extremes I go to stay outdoors as much as possible, since I’m convinced that I am solar powered.
I’m your middle of the pack runner, everyday chick who pours my heart into this little running passion of mine. I also deal with injuries ( a lot lately) and other issues. I’m not superwoman (yet!) and may never become a marathoner, but I can relate to other runners who strive to be their best, reach for PR’s while still living life, dealing with life issues and drinking an obscene amount of coffee.
I have been on the bench from running since 2014. I’ve battled and still in a fight with Sesamoiditis, Morton’s Neuroma and hip surgery. You may check out the “Injuries” page for the latest updates on progress.
Along with injuries, I was diagnosed with food allergies and intolerances in November of 2015. Life is truly a party these days! Cooking has never been a passion of mine, and if we’re being real, I despised it. Nowadays I’ve learned to embrace it, and dare I say actually kinda like it. Yes, miracles do happen folks! So while I am far from a gourmet chef, you will see an occasional recipe or link to my favorites around here from time to time.
I enjoy connecting with you guys, virtually & in real life, so feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

I hate rules, I don’t even know why I’m making these up. Oh yeah it’s for those people.
- No crying. Crybabies will be banned and get the SCB beat down. Whatever that is.
- If something offends you on the blog, please bring it to our attention so we can not care and laugh at you.
