My name is Naomi and I live in the San Francisco Bay Area.
I was born and raised in Hawai’i, in a culture that loves food. I grew up overweight and athletically challenged.
In 2004 I joined a gym, worked with a personal trainer (who still trains me today!) and lost 40+ lbs, dropping 4 dress sizes.
But it wasn’t until after that happened that I realized how much fun being active could be. Since then I’ve discovered a deep love for all fitness-related things, especially running.
About The Tao of Me
The Tao of Me is my personal blog that chronicles my experiences in pursuit to create the healthiest me I can be.
This site started as a travel journal, and then became a place to share my musings. Over the past four years it has evolved to become a creative outlet where I talk about running, training, eating and where I still share random thoughts.
I find that leading a healthy lifestyle is constant learning process. I learn a lot from reading other blogs and hope that the experiences that I share here can also help others who may be looking for new ideas, or motivation to adopt an active lifestyle. It’s a cliché but it’s true – if I can do it, anyone can! You can read “My Story” here.
