Hi! My name is Julie Wunder. Welcome to my healthy living lifestyle blog, Running in a Skirt!
I may be best known for my 11 year stint as a meteorologist and morning news personality on WLOS in Asheville, NC, but Running in a Skirt is my main gig now and I could not be happier!
Even though I was good at my job and even won an Emmy award, the grueling schedule was making me sick and I knew I had to make a change.
I left my career in the TV news business to pursue a healthier lifestyle with more work-life balance.
Beyond my official “claims to fame,” I am a wife,
and dog mom to one crazy and aging Dachshund… Isn’t he cute?
… and one bonkers boxer puppy named Makena Rose.
I am also a chef, recipe developer and photographer,
and traveler with a severe case of wanderlust.
I am a lover of all things fitness and I am, of course, a runner.
And yes, I run in a skirt.
Most of all I believe in dreamers and I believe a smile can make a difference.
I am passionate about healthy living because I saw first hand how starting to run and eat better changed my life.
Within two years I went from not being able to run a quarter of a mile, to finishing the Chicago Marathon.
Running in a Skirt is my way of sharing a personal journey to find balance in my life through fitness, good food, stylish surroundings and travel. My goal with this site is to use my stories to help you lead a happier healthier life.
I sincerely appreciate and thank you for reading my blog. I hope you will come back and visit often because I’d love to get to know you too.
