Hi. I’m Calee. Not Caylee. If you call me Caylee, we cannot be friends. Unless you buy me a drink. Then we can talk. Just don’t call me Caylee again.
Though my (not so clever — c + last name = chimes) moniker on twitter is “chimes“, I am not affiliated with the restaurant in Baton Rouge. But I will tweet inappropriately at you if you mention “eating at chimes“.
I’m 28. ish.
I run. I ran a marathon in 2008. And I injured my leg pretty hardcore. Then I all but quit running, but came back and won a 5K in 2009. And in 2010 I shattered my half marathon PR by 20 minutes. And, I finally bit the bullet and registered for another marathon in October of 2013.
I recently started strength training … and now any time I have a little bit of booze in me …
When I’m not sweating, I’m either in the kitchen, in my sewing room, or behind my ancient MacBook designing great layouts and / or writing this blog. I’m working on my MFA in graphic design, and dabbling in nutrition classes on the time. If I have spare time, I do freelance design and sell some of my crafts in a shop (graphic design rates here).
You should know that when I was little I wanted to be a rock star. Hell, I still want to be a rock star. I was actually even in a band once in 2005. But instead of being a rock star, I’m a music snob — mostly into metal and Michael Jackson. Though I’ve been known to get sleazy and listen to Ke$ha. But now I mostly stick to karaoke .
When I’m not sweating, designing, rocking out, or cooking, I’m talking. I like to talk, as you’ve probably gathered — almost as much as I like to change my hair.
And I’ve been dating my best friend Mark for more than 3 years. He’s cute. By day he’s a mechanical engineer, and at night he is the best male companion friend that anybody could ever ask for (okay that sounds dirty, but you get the picture). In Mark’s spare time he cooks fantastic creations. He doesn’t have his own show on the Food Network, but he does have a feature on life + running: Wonder-Bred Italian Boy Cooks.
We have a long haired miniature doxie named Mr. Barnabus Stinson, II (Barney, aptly named after NPH’s character on How I Met Your Mother) that I adopted in 2009. Don’t be fooled by his cuteness, he is kind of a jerk. But we love him anyway.
I have an AMAZING group of friends who are my lifeline and the best support system you could ever want.
That’s it. The unabridged version of “about me”. If you want to know the history of this blog, here’s a post.
Oh, and one more important thing. I’m not modest in any way, shape or form. And you’ll likely see awkward underwear fitness-related photos on my blog. And if you want to know something, don’t be afraid to ask.
Hi there. I'm Calee (pronounced CAL-e). If that's too hard, just call me Cal. Also known as chimes or the chimes. I'm 28ish, a designer, a runner, a self-proclaimed fitness queen, a craftster, a foodie, a music snob — some might call me a hipster. Here's the unabridged version.
