It's Fit House


I read something really fun this past weekend.  And you know me, when I read something fun, I usually want to share. This story had to do with running, so of course I wanted to share!

celebrities who run
  It was a story about Candace Cameron Bure and Andrea Barber ( DJ and Kimmy from Full House/Fuller House).  It talked about how they’ve taken their childhood friendship to a different level now that they are both adults with families and how they both enjoy running.

I had known for a while now that Andrea was a runner because she ran Rock n Roll Las Vegas the same year we ran it, (and has since claimed it as one of her favorite races)!  Actually, Candace Cameron Bure was supposed to have run that race as well but as I stalked browsed her IG account I noticed she was at home with her family and never made it to Las Vegas. She never even mentioned the race so I wonder what happened there?

But anyway, this article in Women’s Running, talked about how the two got started with running.  I found this very interesting because Andrea’s first race was the Tinkerbelle Half Marathon four years ago. Where you there?  Who wouldn’t be hooked on running if that was their first race? She then she went on to run several more half and full marathons. 

Candace of course was inspired by her friend’s half marathon and decided she wanted to start running too. The two did a 10k mud run together.  Candace has not done a half marathon yet but she plans to run her first one with Andrea. And guess what, she said she promised Andrea that she would do the Tinkerbelle half marathon with her.  There was no word as to when she would be running that race but if you are going to Tink next month I’d keep an eye out!

I just thought this was a great “feel good” story about two friends that have been brought together even closer because of their love of running and pride in each other’s accomplishments.  If you’d like to read the entire story it can be found in the May issue of Women’s Running magazine.  Do you have a friend like that?
And with that, I have successfully complete the April AND May issues of Women's Running magazine. I am on a roll!   -M

  1. That's what I love about running, it is so much more than the actual run itself. It's such a social thing too.

    1. I've been doing well with keeping up with the new ones coming in but I still have a TON of back issues I need to catch up on. Hopefully this summer I will.

  4. I do have a friend like that! My best friend since 3rd grade. She's living in Brazil right now, so it's hard to do things together.
    As a huge Full House fan, I love this!

  9. I read an article about Andrea Barber and her running a while ago... and I have to admit, I developed a woman's crush on her after that! I love her in Fuller House, and I think that is because I know she is a runner IRL.

    it's great to see how they are still friends! Thanks for sharing the article! and good job on finishing the magazines!

  11. I love that they were friends before but running brought them closer together. I'm a sucker for "celebrity cast mates become actual friends" stories!

  16. I love Candace! I just love her family values and her values even as a celebrity. I also love how she's taken on such a new love for running and healthy lifestyle.
    I did not know this story, but I loved reading about the two girls. Makes me love Fuller House even more, gosh I can't wait for them to put up new episodes:)

    I have quite a few friends that I have wonderful memories running together. A couple of my youthful running buddies are living where I am going and we've already been talking about hitting up a few running trails together. I have a lot of friends locally that are all runners, we don't run together but oh getting together and chatting about the races, nothing better than doing it with a great friend!!
    Thanks for sharing this fun story today!!!
