I was able to get in a glorious run this AM with the run club…it was quite chilly I have to say but the day has shaped up to be a beautiful one! 78 degrees practically feels like freakin’ springtime. Thank you Texas and mother nature.
So we are getting back to the basics today! Since it is a new year and we may have some new readers joining us I thought I’d do a fun little ‘about me’ type of survey. I have to thank Bethany over at Simmering Mind for the idea. Hope you enjoy!
Name: Chelsea Ross
Age: 32…or is that 21? Nah, 32. Like a fine wine I get better with age. Flirty thirties is the best.
Food: Sushi, wine (YES IT IS A FOOD JUST GO WITH IT), cheese and chocolate.
Drink: Water, chai tea with almond milk, coffee, kombucha.
Book: The Coldest Winter Ever by Sister Souljah
Song: Spanish Joint by D’Angelo
Movie: Love Jones. Highly recommended.
Band: Oh…good question. My taste in music is pretty diverse and since I teach spin class I’m always listening to and looking for new music. So, probably too many to name just one.
Solo Artist: See ‘band’ answer above.
Place: The open roads or a beautiful trail to get my run on.
Subject: All things running, fitness, beauty and nutrition.
Sport: Basketball would probably by my favorite sport to watch.
Actor: Boris Kodjoe simply because he is a beautiful man.
Actress: Jennifer Lawrence
Schooling: Graduated college in 2006 (I’m OLD -in fact I’m so old I had to correct myself just now because I put ’02 initially instead of ’06!! Good gracious) with a Bachelor of Arts degree in broadcast journalism. Best decision I’ve ever made. I’m in love with my job working behind the scenes as a Promotions Producer in television. I write promos and commercials for Christian television. (I know, I know, I NEVER talk about work! But yes, fitness is my side hustle. TV is my career. Now you know.)
BF: Best friend? Boyfriend?? Not sure what this means. I am currently single after having been with someone for close to 5 years. It was not an easy breakup (it has been a super hot MINUTE too since the breakup–so I’m truly okay!! Some of you may remember) but I wish him the best. I’ve been off and on dating since then and I actually love it. Living life, meeting people, having fun. The end.
Political ideology: HA…we won’t get into all of that. Moving right along…
Tattoos: Sun on my lower back. It’s a tramp stamp. Don’t judge. I was 18 and young and silly! Sometimes I forget it’s even there.
Piercings: Double piercing on both ears.
Languages: English, took a few Spanish classes…I took a French class in college and it was super hard! I need to get back to trying to learn it again soon.
Reason behind your blog name: When I first started the blog I was teaching dance classes at 24 Hour Fitness, it was my first gig as a group fitness instructor. I loved it at the time and also was training for a marathon. So I thought ‘thedancingrunner’ was a fitting name. I teach spin class/indoor cycling now and have since taken a hiatus from teaching dance. BUT…I still dance on my BIKE so I kept the name.
Why you blog: I love connecting with like minded people from all over the world…and promoting fitness and having FUN while working hard. Yes, it is possible to do both!
Please feel free to fill out any or all of the questions!

I take it you’ve seen Soul Food then? AMAZING.
Ahhh yes! My dear sweet Boris!! I met him in person too actually, when I was in L.A. at the grove! We ran into him at Whole Foods. It was an incredible moment in time 🙂 🙂
Love learning more about you Chels. I had no clue about the sun tattoo. And yes, wine is a food group. Fruit! 😂
Well thanks I enjoy sharing!! Grapes are God’s fruit!!!
Love when bloggers incorporate their faith background into their blog. As a new reader it’s great to see so much info to get to know you better. What ultra distance are you currently training for??
Sit tight, my friend. You will find out very soon!! Get your popcorn ready!! HAHA!
Don’t keep us waiting too long. Not too many blogs I follow train for Ultras. Popcorn ready lol
I had no idea what you did for a living- nice! Now I am even more impressed by your impressive morning mileage. 🙂 Fun survey!
Aw well thanks! Yes working in Christian tv versus news is a totally different animal! The good thing is we don’t have as many live shows so my schedule is definitely more flexible. Having a work/life balance is incredible!!
Chelz you are a true inspiration to a lot of people. You have great personality and a lovable heart. You made a special impact in my life for those 5 years and from the bottom of my heart i want to say thank you. I wish you nothing but the best and miss you dearly. Continue to inspire the world through your running and motivation. I will always be proud of you.
