One of the most fun things about opening stores in new locations is being able to work with new fashion and style bloggers. To celebrate our Novi, Michigan store in Twelve Oaks Mall, we teamed up with Lisa Marie Prang, a style blogger, YouTuber and runner from Michigan. We recently collaborated with Lisa once again for our new Go by Garage activewear collection and she was a perfect fit. Not only can she put together some of trendiest outfits of the season, but she’s also a great role model for staying fit and eating healthy. From swimming to running to competing in triathlons, Lisa inspires us to lead an active lifestyle.

When and why did you start running on a regular basis?
It wasn’t until after I graduated high school in 2013 that I found my love for running. I started running so I wouldn’t get out of shape after years and years of being on the swim team. I ran typically a mile or two each day whether it was outside or in the gym. Once I found out that I actually enjoyed running (weird I know!), I started competing in various half marathons and triathlons. In between training for races it’s just been really the only time I have to myself in between my fashion blog, college, and a social life!

What other good habits have you adopted to stay fit and healthy?
I’ve found that besides running, I’ve formed healthy eating habits. It’s super hard to run when you aren’t nourishing your body with healthy choices!

What’s your long-term goal?
My long-term goal is to compete in the Boston Marathon. My plan is to just keep running, training, and keeping a positive attitude.
