I have another wonderful blogger to bring to you today. Please join me in welcoming Nadeen from The Sophisticated Life!


Name: Nadeen



When did you first start blogging and why?


I started blogging in 2012. I have spent most of my life pursuing and then practicing my first love of pediatric medicine but I finally had a chance to really tap into my creative side at that time. My mother loved to travel and passed that on to me. In addition my parents introduced me to the arts at an early age. I felt between my experiences and my family and friends we had so much to share with the world hence the tag line of “Live. Travel. Share.”


What is your most helpful blogging tip?

Blog about what you love to do and what comes naturally to you in your day to day life. What are you passionate about? What excites you? If you focus on that then the blog ideas will come and the words flow.


What is your favorite fitness activity?

I love cycling. I have always enjoyed bike riding while on vacation but after moving to Atlanta I found the scenery to be so beautiful that I bought a bike last year and have discovered beautiful trails all around the city!


What motivates you?

I am passionate about the definition of Sophisticated. “To be altered by education and experience”. I believe there is so much in the world to share. Sophisticated is not about being “snooty” it’s about knowledge. I would like to create a brand based on this principle.


What has fitness changed about your life?

I believe in being fit and staying healthy. It gives me energy!


What is your favorite pump up song?

Right now “Happy” by Pharrell!


What is your favorite running distance?

I’m not a runner but hope to do a 5k soon.


What is your favorite motivational quote/mantra?

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.


What is your favorite piece of running/fitness gear?

My padded cycle pants. Definitely keeps it comfy back there for long rides.


What is your favorite “treat”?

Tell us something unique about yourself.

I am a Jamerican. I was born in New York City but my family is from Jamaica and I lived there until I was 10 years old.


If you could give one piece of advice to someone who is starting out running, what would it be?
