Welcome to fauxrunner.com! 

London Marathon Race Report

I am Smitha, a “normal” person with absolutely no athletic bone in her body. A couch potato all my life and peaking at 203lbs, I took up running to lose baby weight and fight post partum depression.  

My mantra has been slow and steady. I have not let the fact that I’m a slow athlete (often finishing in the last 10%) deter me from taking on new challenges. Nor have I let the fact that I still struggle with weight issues deter me.

Weight and pace (and age) is just a number when it comes to enthusiasm and determination. I am passionate about how far running and triathlon has brought me and love sharing my journey so that anyone reading will know that nothing is impossible. Anything can be achieved as long as you are ready to work for it with discipline and determination; it doesn’t matter how fast/slow you are or how much you weigh. 

I live in Atlanta, Georgia with 2 kids who are budding runners and triathletes, and a runner husband.

Brand Promotions

I have worked with many brands by reviewing and holding giveaways of their products.  If you are interested in working with me, please contact me through the form at the end of this page, or email me at thefauxrunner at gmail dot com with details regarding your product and expectations.  Most promotional campaigns are much more successful when I am given a product to giveaway to my readers! Brands and products must be family-friendly. I am 100% honest in all my reviews.  Should you send me a product to review, that product will be mine to keep.
