Hi there! My name is Christine, last name Newton (see what I did there?). I started a crazy journey towards a healthier lifestyle back in 2015. I went from a pretty sedentary lifestyle, to running marathons and teaching group fitness classes.

I started this journey after my second child was born in January 2015. I was depressed, suffered from anxiety, and was frustrated with myself because of the number on the scale. I wanted to be able to chase after my two little boys in the yard and show them healthier habits. It was time to take care of myself, set an example for my kids, and adopt a healthy lifestyle. While I initially lost a lot of weight on this journey, I soon changed my mindset from chasing a number the scale to chasing the next big PR!

Just before I started this journey to becoming a marathoner and ultrarunner.

I’ve been married to my super-supportive husband, James for 15 years (how’d we get so old?), and together almost 20. We have two little boys who keep us on our toes, and a whole bunch of fur babies (one dog, one cat, and two kitties in heaven).

I am working my way through the 50 states, doing a half marathon or further at each one. So far I’ve completed:

10 out of 50 states

16 half marathons

4 marathons

1 ultra marathon

I’m an Ambassador for the following companies:


Honey Stinger


And I’m part of the Oiselle Volee.

I also have a sewing and craft blog. It’s a little bit neglected at the moment, but I pop on to update it from time to time. It’s called, What’s Up, Cupcake?
