Daughter. Sister. Aunty. Friend. Traveler. Marathoner.
Hi, I’m MJ!
I am a lover of culture, experiences and adventure. I always wanted to travel but waiting on others to make up their mind and join me, took years! Out of fear, I always ended sitting on my couch, watching movies during my vacations or better known as staycations. That, or I was financially not able to travel. In 2017, I finally realized that if I want to see the world, I would have to do it on my own, and my traveling journey began.
I have a 9-5 job; I am a runner; a fur-baby mom to 2 amazing shih tzus and formerly 1 Toy-Maltese (now in doggy-heaven). I have a wonderful older sister and younger brother, 2 nephews and 2 nieces, and I am a proud Mexican-American! Besides traveling and running races, I am a huge mental health advocate and fitness & wellness enthusiast. I think that we don’t really discuss the huge need for mental assistance programs and promote self-care very little. I hope to become a yoga teacher in 2019! I also enjoy cooking, taking long walks in my neighborhood, reading and shopping on Amazon (lets be real, who doesn’t?), I love champagne and am obsessed with anything Frida Kahlo. In 2018, I co-founded Leap of Fitness, a page where anyone, anywhere, can enjoy fitness.
Welcome to my world! I would love for my journey to inspire you to not only discover the world, but also to inspire you to take care of your body, mind and health!
