Welcome to Run Eat Repeat – a running, food and healthy living blog!
Hi! I’m Monica Olivas and I run and eat A LOT … mostly in southern California where I was born and raised.
I”m a holistic health coach and certified running coach. I’m also a red-headed Mexican (which doesn’t really help with running or eating but does help explain my spicy temper?).
I started Run Eat Repeat almost 9 years ago (!!!) to document training for my first marathon and as a diet log. After my first marathon I swore I’d never do it again…
then 24 hours later I knew I had to do it again – faster. Luckily, Run Eat Repeat was growing and growing so I kept sharing my marathon and half marathon training, recipes, big life events, major fails (and falls) and more. Since you kept reading and following me on social media… I kept writing, creating videos, recipes and now a Podcast!
Since starting “RER” I have lost 20 pounds, completed over 50 half marathons and 30 full marathons!
I fell in love with running and now I want to help you fall in love with it too.
Or if you already love running – I want to help you run faster, stay on track, get motivated, show up, run your first race and hit all your goals!
I never expected this blog to turn into a way for me to connect with so many people. I love running and eating and I LOVE being able to help others that want tips on living a healthy lifestyle.
I want to share my story and I also want to help you hit your goals. If you have any questions or need some support feel free to reach out to me. Leave a comment on my latest post, on Instagram, Facebook or email me.
I am a certified Health Coach and Running Coach. I create training plans and recipes. I document my life, running, travel and more. If you have questions on what I’m doing or have a tip to share with others – feel free to leave a comment on that post.
Monica in a nutshell: – Red headed Mexican girl from Southern CA willing to embarrass herself on the internet daily right here for your viewing pleasure.
I grew up outside of Los Angeles in a small-ish city for the area. I went to Catholic school where I was the only ginger and maybe a lil bit of a weirdo… maybe a lot of a weirdo?
I went to high school and college in the area and moved to Long Beach for a year after that. The Long Beach Marathon is one of my favorites because I used to run on parts of the course.
I love: Running, Eating, watermelon, ice cream, jokes
I don’t love: Falling in public, gum in my hair or dogs that bite
I started this blog to document my weight loss journey and write about running my first marathon. I never expected it to grow into the massive success that it has. Run Eat Repeat has been named a top running blog and top weight loss blog several times. Support and love from readers like you have helped to grow this lil ol’ thing into a business that takes most of my time to run. (Run! Pun intended.)
Thank you for following along as I run around the world and share my delicious eats too! So far I’ve run in Las Vegas, Disney World, Alaska, New York, Jerusalem and so many more places!
