Hi my name is Jordan and I am 24 years old, working and living in San Francisco
After college I was so unsure of what I wanted to pursue in life and decided the best thing to do was move in with my best friends (the most amazing women I know) in Boston and begin to figure out life. After a year at a tediously boring desk job and doing long distance with my boyfriend I decided to take a leap and move west. Over a year and half ago I moved out to San Francisco from the east coast to live with my boyfriend and since then I have managed to turn my internship at a small public health non-profit into my full time job organizing walk-athon events.
In addition to this fulfilling job I have explored my passion of running and eating and living a healthy lifestyle. During the few stressful years getting into and then going to college I was battling extreme stomach pains and abnormal bowel movements. I was eventually diagnosed with colitis and I have since adjusted my lifestyle to deal with this unpredictable chronic condition.
I was always athletic but I decided to move exercise to the top of my daily to do list in order to keep my intestines happy and my mind focused on positive thoughts. Throughout college I played on our women’s club lacrosse team and ran 3 miles every other day or so. Now I have stepped up my running and half/full marathon training is incorporated into my every day life. I have also drastically altered my diet, eliminating several types of food that I know will cause a flare up, such as dairy and fried foods.
Living in my new Bay Area home I have pushed my boundaries and found new layers of myself, indulging in passions I never thought I would possess. So,
I invite you to follow me as I continue to discover my next steps as I run, eat and live a healthy, full life…
