Agnes, a native Nigerian, is a fitness blogger living and working in Columbus, Ohio. Before moving to Columbus, she lived in Chicago, Illinois for 3 years. While living in Chicago, she started this blog in June 2014 as a way to document her training journey to the Chicago Marathon, her first marathon where she was invited to train exclusively with Nike Chicago.
As a former Yoga Sculpt instructor at CorePowerYoga, she enjoys maintaining a healthy body even in a heated yoga studio. Running has always being apart of her life since primary and high school where she was on the track and field team and performed as a top sprinter. 2014 is when she begun long distance running. She believes that exercising and eating a balanced diet are keys to a successful life. Without a healthy body and mind, goals in life will not be achievable.
Once intimated about crossing the finish line of a marathon (26.2 miles), she now lives for the moments when others say to her: “Agnes, thank you for inspiring me to start my fitness journey.” She has ran races in Nigeria, South Africa, the United States (Chicago, Columbus, and Los-Angeles) and will soon be running a half-marathon in Hefei, China as a Columbus Athlete Ambassador. Outside of running, she raises money for Charity:Water, trains with Nike+ training club, and enjoys attending church.
