I’m Elle Russell, a 30 something Alabama native that now resides in the DMV.
I’m a wife, mother, full-time employee, runner, cyclist, contract sewing instructor with JoAnn Fabrics and a owner of RunBikeSew Studio home of the “Ellyn-Audrey Clutch Line” and DIY sewing projects.
Often times, women, more specifically moms ask me “where do you find the time to do all that you do?” My response is simple, “I make time”. From 4:30am workouts to 10pm sewing sessions. We ALL get the same 24 hours in a day, it’s all about how you manage and maximize them.
So come along with me, as I embark on this new journey of blogging. While my hope is that all who reads my blog is entertained and informed, my target audience is that “mom on the go” who desires to “live life unapologetically and without guilt!”. As a 4 hour a day work commuter and mother of an active little boy, I understand the feeling of being stretched thin which is why I want to encourage moms to take time for yourself. From “run-cations” to sewing to starting a business, I’ve learned that in order for me to be the best me for myself and family,I have be to be sure to get that “healthy” balance of things that makes me “selfishly happy”.
My hope is that you’ll find this blog relatable as I share my journey in attempting to balance being a wife-mom-fit chick and sewpreneur!
