Ambassador Spotlight: Carlee Brandom


by For Two Fitness December 22, 2015

We are pleased to introduce you to Carlee Brandom, one of the newest For Two Fitness Fit Mom Ambassadors.  Read more to learn all about Carlee.

I’m Carlee and I started my fitness journey as a swimmer.  However, once college ended, and I didn’t have a team to train with, swimming felt more like work than fitness ever had.  I decided to take up running.  Since then I’ve run 10 marathons and countless other races.  I qualified for Boston this last May and there is no way I could not run it this year.  Therefore, I’ll be running it pregnant…like 8 months pregnant.  I have no doubt that this will be more of a waddle, but unless it becomes a danger to me or the baby, I’m going to finish and earn that jacket!

For Two Fitness Fit Mom Ambassador Carlee Brandom

My son, Gregory is 3 and he joins me for many of my runs.  He’s actually completed 7 half marathons with me and still loves racing.  When I was pregnant, with him I ran up until 2 days before he was born.  I also teach spin classes and love being outside doing things like hiking.  I still swim from time to time and think it’s one of the best sports out there.  I think being a mom athlete is so important to my son, as he doesn’t seem to be too competitive.  I don’t want him to think that if he isn’t into football he can’t be an athlete.  Before I found swimming, I thought that because I couldn’t catch, I couldn’t be an athlete.  Now I can’t imagine my life without being active.
