Our MISSION:  Living Fit [Columbus] is a Dublin-based fitness group & blog that wishes to promote a lifestyle of fitness, health & happiness.  And the occasional cup of coffee.  Screen Shot 2014-03-02 at 12.46.10 PM

Our GOALS:  

  • Tour Columbus finding the latest and greatest fitness studios, facilities and workouts
  • Tour the US and beyond to discover adventure through hiking, running, yoga and more
  • Interview fitness experts and share their knowledge with our readers
  • Promote fitness, health & wellness information
  • Help motivate those around us to be FIT and FABULOUS!

    • A former sprinter, Deedra has (finally) gotten into distance running, is a cyclist lover and races for the Pelatonia each year.  Learn more about her HERE!
  • Peggy Bohn ~
    • Regular runner, team cheerleader… our version of John Bingham, the Penguin!  Peggy is more of a ‘walker’ (although try and walk as fast as she does!), so often the caboose of the pack… but she likes it that way!  Peggy is one of the happiest, healthiest 60+ people you will EVER meet. Learn more about her HERE!

Living Fit Alumni [former TEAM members]

  • Christine Loncaric – was a regular runner & blog contributor for years! She helped us train for many races and we got to witness lots of her PRs. She was our Instagram co-founder, giving us the push we needed to get it going! Sadly she moved to Cincinnati in 2018, but we hope to plan many destination races to keep in touch… starting with Flying Pig ’19!
  • Lan & Mahvish  – our running yogis! Lan & Mahvish were early regulars and helped us see the many benefits of yoga for runners. They’ve both since moved but we hope to run+yoga with them again someday!
  • Kathleen – fellow fitness enthusiast who enjoys running, yoga, Cross Fit & has a minor obsession with fashion (lululemon and Ann Taylor Loft to name a few). She’d be happy to test or review any product you throw her way! Kathleen ran her first half in 2012, was very active in helping us grow the Living Fit blog and trained with us for the Cap City half ’14.
