Background

Hey people of the world!

I’m Jesica Cockerham. Big fan of:

-Workouting

-Nutritioning

-Happying

The idea of creating this blog came to me in between two college classes while I was eating lunch. The notion behind Run On Organic is to spread knowledge, inspiration, and incredible products that contribute to an active, organic & healthy way of living.

As an athlete, I’ve always had a burning desire to reach my maximum potential physically. This drove me to learn about the most beneficial things to put into my body. Along the way, I’ve discovered that what you put onto your body (cleansers, shampoos, soaps, conditioners, etc) also impacts how your body functions. Once I became more aware of what I put into my body, there was no turning back. A lot of habits were immediately out the window because I could not knowingly keep doing that damage to my body (i.e. drinking sodas, eating lots of empty calories with no nutritional value, consuming all kinds of preservatives in packaged foods). This was the spark that started this mission I’m on: to run on organic fuel. Along the way, I enjoy helping others learn what I have, which will ultimately help us all to become healthier individuals.

I have been an athlete my entire life:

I’m an avid runner, fitness enthusiast, skin care junkie & health nut:

I have aΒ black lab mix that I rescued. Her name is Kona and she is supes (majorly super) spoiled.

My product reviews are written only about brands that I believe are making commendable efforts to make products with good ingredients. That said, the tone of my reviews will always be positive and never slanderous, as my writing style is optimistic and honest, at the same time.

That said, all of the reviews I write favor the product. Some moderately favorable and some highly favorable. If the product was in no way favorable, I would not try it in the first place. Therefore, you will not read a review that shares my immense disappointment in a product.

I feel good about respecting each company I work with and not bashing them. To maintain honesty in my writing, I only work with brands that I believe are creating good things.

    1. I enjoy the connection on instagram as well–I’ve shared with my mom how much I enjoy that little community on instagram–it’s so neat how it allows me to connect with outstanding individuals like you who share my interests! I owe it to my parents–surely–for being such great examples for me to follow. They’ve always encouraged me to be the best athlete/healthiest individual I can be–which lead me to discovering the coolest products and recipes to get me there. You certainly have helped that, too!

  7. Jesica, I was gifted a bottle of Peppermint Tea Tree Organic Olive Oil Intensive Sole Therapy. I’m so happy to see you have dogs! As you know, dogs can be very “nosy”. I have a Chocolate Lab and a Siberian Husky and they LOVE to sniff and taste my “paws” after I have applied the peppermint tea tree intensive sole therapy. Should I worry? I love the product and I’m very interested in trying others. Please let me know if this is pet safe.
    Best Regards,
    Balinda T.

    1. I understand your concern! I have not done extensive research on the safety of that but I would venture to say it is okay in small amounts. Thanks for your support and for stopping by to read my work!

    2. Hey Balinda,

      Peppermint in small quantities in generally safe. It’s actually a great ingredient for dog shampoo (in human shampoo, too!) I would say there is little need to worry. Enjoy that time with your pups!

    1. Hey Stacey!

      Wishing you a very speedy recovery. I would say the two things that have made the biggest difference for me was sleeping with no pillow (which keeps my neck at a better angle) and being extra aware of my form when I am exercising. Hope you find what works for you!
