Hello there!  Welcome to marathons + matcha.  I’ve wanted to start a blog for a while and that was what I’m about, living a healthy life to the fullest.  I am very excited to start this journey and new to this whole life of blogging, so please bear with me :).

My name is Hallie and I’m a thirty-something living in Philadelphia who loves to run and all things fitness.  I’ve been living in Philadelphia for almost 8 years but grew up in South Jersey, where my love of running started in high school.  I joined the cross country team my freshman year then later joined the track team, where I found the 400m and 800m.

My running came back in full force upon the passing of my father in 2010 and I haven’t turned back.  I knew I was missing something for the longest time but couldn’t quite put my finger on it.  I was in a new relationship and the passing of my father put things in perspective and I knew I needed a change.  So I signed up for a 5k in NYC in 2012 and the rest is history…


Since then I’ve ran a marathon, 9 half marathons, 4 ten miler runs, a 15k, and 6 10ks.  I also recently have gotten certified in Spinning/ Indoor Cycling instructing.

I hope you enjoy being a part of this community.  I’ll be discussing all things that I love from fitness to training for my first marathon to nutrition and everything in between.

Feel free to reach out about any content you want to see or if any questions or comments.  I really want to get to know my community and help in any way I can.

See you at the finish line,

Hallie 🙂
