About Us

Mandy and Steph are BFF’s who started running together a few years ago (after working together for almost 10 years and knowing of each other a looong time ago in high school). Steph gets the credit of getting Mandy off her rear by suggesting they start the C25K (couch to 5k) program. Thanks, Steph!
Newest member of The Running Besties is our friend, Nikki! Since becoming a bestie, Nikki and I have run a few half marathons and took on the challenge of running our first full marathon this fall! We did it!

The rest, is history 🙂

Mandy: I’m a 39 year old registered nurse from the UP of
Michigan. I’ve been married for 19 years, have an 18 year old son, 30 year old step son, and two awesome granddaughters 7 and 4. We have two adopted mutts, Maggie, the baby, and her big brother, Fred, my running partner! mandy@therunningbesties.com

Thanks for checking out our journey to a fit and healthier lifestyle!

    Hello Mandy & Steph,
    Just a quick email to ask if you would be interested in a ‘mutual’ following on twitter. (#FYI I do RT’s ‘ANYTIME’ for all #Triathletes #Cyclists #UltraRunners #Marathoners #FitnessProfessionals who follow me on Twitter and have something important they want mentioned for support…Over 41K folks at your access.) I am currently following you now and am awaiting for your follow-back…

    All the very best for the rest of 2013 & beyond Mandy & Steph. Look forward to hearing from you…

    (PS. Mandy & Steph, should you follow back, I’ll be mentioning you in my #FollowFriday #Shoutouts next week…)
