Hi! I’m Andrea.


On A Fun Run is all about me enjoying this running journey I’ve started while striving to maintain a healthy lifestyle, step out of my comfort zone, cherish time with family and friends, and laugh every day.

I started running in August 2012 and have been “on a fun run” ever since! I continue to learn, grow, and improve with every run. I started this blog to document my training for my first (and second) half marathons! My second half marathon (in November 2013) was part of a program called Team Challenge where I raised money for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America while training for the Las Vegas Rock ‘n Roll Half Marathon. Check out this post for my personal story about why I joined Team Challenge. I’ll be did my second Team Challenge half marathon in New Orleans in February 2016 – another amazing experience!

I ran my first full marathon in October 2015. I will definitely do another one some day!

Along with running, I’m balancing work, exploring the Twin Cities, and having fun with friends and family. Thanks for joining me on this “run.”

  1. Good Morning –

    I was wondering if you might be interested in attending and helping us spread the news about a Color Dash event on behalf of a local nonprofit – InSports Foundation. In exchange for the post, we’d love to invite you to attend the event with a free admission.

    On Saturday, May 21st, InSports Foundation will be hosting our first Color Dash! 50% of the proceeds from this event will benefit underprivileged youth pay for their seasonal expenses. The Colordash is a non-competitive, un-timed, 5k run/walk that will be held in Saint Louis Park, MN. At each kilometer of the course, volunteers will toss colors at participants. By the end of the run, everyone will be covered with colors!

    The Colordash is a great opportunity for you and your family to be active and have fun while also supporting underprivileged youth in the community. Pick-up of registration packets begins at 7 a.m. and the dash begins at 9 a.m.
    • Register Today!
    • Visit the Colordash website for more information, including some FAQ
    Admission includes an event t-shirt, race pins, temporary tattoo, and 50% of your registration fee goes straight to local youth in the community!

    Would you be interested in helping us spread the word and attending the event? We would be happy to send along more details and information to assist with a post!

    Thanks for your time and consideration.

    • Hi Cristy! Thank you so much for reaching out! It sounds like a great event. Unfortunately, I have another commitment that day so I won’t be able to attend this year. I appreciate the invitation and I wish you lots of success with the race.
