My name is Anna and I’m a Supply Chain Manager by day (i.e., stealth Excel Ninja), research junkie by night.  Based on my magazine and book collection, I would say my passions in life are: healthy eating (or at least owning books about healthy eating), cooking, working out, running (yes, it gets its own category), personal finance, saving time, a lot of chick literature, and the occasional sophisticated book that might make a fancy “Top Books” list.

I live in Minneapolis, MN with my boyfriend, Matt, and our pets.  We live near a few lakes and a terrific trail system so we spend a lot of time outdoors when it isn’t freezing cold.  I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Operations Management from the University of St. Thomas and my Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Minnesota – Carlson School of Management. 

Now that we have the introduction aside, let me tell you why I am blogging.  In addition to being a research junkie, as my boyfriend would say, I am a “sharer”.  Not only do I like to research my passions, I like to share what I’ve learned and my opinion about it.  I may not follow the advice 100% of the time (my willpower and I don’t always agree), but I like to try anyway.

p.s., this is me in my pre-first marathon glory (October 2011):

ready to run 26.2 miles!

    I’m so proud of my daughter in so many ways, but I am especially proud that she has taken responsibility for her health by being proactive! I love you!

  3. I’m definitely a researching and sharer. I actually started my blog primarily because I’d read so many interesting things about heath/fitness but didn’t really have a place to store everything.
