About Me

Welcome! Thank you so much for stopping by!

My name is Tricia and I am a 30-year-old blogger, running, spin, hot yoga and barre enthusiast living in Seattle, WA. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication and currently work as a Recruiter for a large tech company. I started this blog as a way to share my passion for fitness with others and I really enjoy interacting and sharing stories with all of you!  This blog has evolved since I first started it to now focus on how to be the best version of yourself, both physically and mentally that you can. I’m constantly striving to be the best version of myself and I’m bringing you all along for the ride!

Now it’s not all serious business here on A Couple of Dashes. I also post a lot about the shenanigans I get into with my friends and family, who are a huge part of my life. So if you’re into fitness, fun, froyo (my all time favorite dessert!), then you’re in the right place!


Now for a little bit more about me and my fitness journey. I started running in January 2013 and participated in my first 5k in March 2013. I ran my first ever half marathon in January 2014 at Disney World during the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend.


As if I wasn’t hooked on running already, I was definitely sold after I acquired my first piece of race bling!


Now for some other random facts about me. I love to travel and have been lucky enough to visit Australia, Germany, Italy and France, in addition to stateside trips.


I have a Shih Tzu puppy named Bella who loves to snuggle.


I like to volunteer and am currently serving on the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation‘s event committee board.


Stitch is by far my favorite Disney character. Hands down.


Since I’m from Seattle, the Seahawks are obviously my favorite sports team! Go Hawks!

I enjoy spending time with my friends and  family. This is a photo of my aunt (middle) and my mom (right) during our trip to Oregon to visit my cousin.

Froyo is by far my dessert of choice and Menchies is usually my go to spot to get my fix but Yeti Yogurt is also pretty good!


And lastly, I do love to kick back with the occasional glass of wine. I usually prefer red these days, but I’m not too picky! 🙂

I hope you enjoy my blog! Make sure to check back often so you can keep up to date and always make sure to comment! I love hearing from you!
