Welcome to Airplanes & Treadmills, my name is Janelle.  This blog is all about the randomness of my life, adventures in working out, and traveling the globe.  I love God, family, friends, running, yoga, teaching, all things Texas, traveling, reading, and so much more (you’ll have to read to blog to see what else:).

Ceremony-1131Happy Wedding Day, July 10, 2011 in Ft. Worth, Texas! 


A month after getting married my husband, Kyle, and I moved to Kunshan, China to teach at an American school.  It was a year full of adventures, amazing memoreis, and exploring foreign lands  We had an unforgettable time but we were beyond grateful to get to move back to North America.

Currently, we live in British Columbia, Canada. We have called BC home since the summer of 2012 and plan to be settled here for a while. Kyle currently teaches P.E. at a local private school and I am a substitute teacher/volunteer/stay at home wife:) Since I am American I cannot work in Canada (hopefully my papers will come any day!!!).  Thankfully, we live about 5 miles from the USA/Canada border and there are a few school districts under 30 minutes away.  Being a substitute teacher is pretty much unpredictable, but I have been very fortunate to sub for some truly fantastic teachers!  On days I am not subbing I volunteer at Kyle’s school teaching K-3 P.E. & coaching various sports.

The Blog

I have never been much of a writer but after half a year of blogging about our adventures in China, I feel in love with blogging and I decided I wanted to create a blog so I could continue blogging once we moved back home.  Over the past 5 years my life has been changed through fitness and I want to share it with anyone who will listen. So it did not take long to decide on a topic, fitness & traveling, two of my deepest passions!  Since, I started the blog it has changed my life and has been an incredibly rewarding experience.  I pray that I can continue to blog about what makes me happy and hopefully motivate a reader here and there to start living a healthier life!

  1. Hi Janelle, I just stumbled upon your blog and noticed a similar theme between both of our blogs. I blog at “Running in Transit” and talk about my love for both running and travel!
