Showing off My Ultra Medal
I wrote a whole post about my ultra marathon in Alaska and never once showed off my beautiful new medal! I’m definitely the kind of person who keeps all my medals for sentimental value, and so obviously this one has the most value! I just finished Catra Corbett’s book, “Reborn on the Run“, and I […]read more

My Favorite Things: Oofos
If you don’t wear Oofos for recovery, are you even ready for your next run? Seriously, these recovery sandals are game-changers. In full disclosure, I work in a run shop and often times am seeded; given free product to wear, learn about, and recommend to customers. This doesn’t mean we are obligated to wear them, […]read more

Love in the Time of Covid19
Let me just start by addressing the elephant in the room here; it’s been awhile. A really long while. And even though so many things have stayed the same, things have changed as well! First of all, Mike and I got engaged at the finish line of my first ultra in Alaska — the Anchorage […]read more
And With 2019 Comes New Races, New Challenges, New Distances and Stronger Training!
Mike and I moved to Orange County on Halloween night and so much has changed since then, and since my last post in December! We started eating much healthier, both of us dropping about 10lbs each. I started working at a specialty run shop, so my knowledge about shoes, shoe fittings, nutrition and apparel has […]read more

Hip Flexibility for all Your Mobility Needs! Seriously, it’s Important. Ask Me How.
I know as of late my blog is starting to look like a Yoga With Adriene fan site, but what can I say? I’m a huge fan and her yoga videos have helped me and my running tremendously. Stumbling across her Yoga For Beginners video on YouTube is what got the fitness ball rolling for […]read more

Quick Yoga For the Mornings, Especially For Those Of Us That Don’t Workout In The Morning!
As I’ve gotten older, I find myself relishing in early mornings and even, dare I say it, early bedtimes! It hasn’t always been like this, not by a long shot, and my family still expects me to sleep til noon when visit. I used to revel in the quiet of 3am, usually because I’d get […]read more

So Delicious: A Tropical Holiday Getaway in a Glass!
I try to enjoy egg nog (non-dairy for the last 12 years) the same way I try to enjoy Hallmark Christmas movies: with no dice. I’m not a fan, but that doesn’t stop me from trying every year with new movies and new beverage brands. Well, thank goodness for that resilient attitude because I’ve realized […]read more

Ultimate Direction Hydration Pack and the Bulldog 25k Trail Race!
2018 was a pretty busy summer for me, race-wise. For the first time in about 10 years, I had weekends off and I signed up for EVERYTHING. The opportunity to be able to race like that was a precious time not lost on me; now that Mike and I have moved to Huntington Beach, I’m […]read more

Rock’n Roll Cancels the Los Angeles Race Weekend (and I Don’t Know Why, But I Get It)
While hanging out on Instagram last night, I found myself scrolling through the comments on a Rock’n Roll post. And then, I saw it: LOS ANGELES IS CANCELLED! At first I was shocked, saddened, I couldn’t believe the race this past October was the last one! The longer I sat with it, the more it […]read more

Race Recap: Long Beach Marathon!
One of my favorite, local, SoCal races, is the Jet Blue Long Beach Marathon! There are a few different race options available during this race weekend, including the half marathon distance, 5k, 20 mile bike ride, and 20 mile bike ride/half marathon combo! The last two years, I’ve run the marathon, which is definitely not […]read more

How to Roast Garlic! It’s So Simple and Delicious!
I don’t know why it took me so long (37 years) to roast my own garlic, but now I’m going to constantly have roasted bulbs in my fridge! It’s seriously so easy, and it adds a beautiful depth of flavor to whatever you incorporate it to! I followed this recipe, and seriously, my bulbs came […]read more

Workin’ That Booooooty
As a runner, I didn’t think it was pertinent to work on my booty; didn’t hitting the pavement almost daily do that work for me? It turns out that no, running alone is not enough. Strengthening your backside not only lifts your booty, making it look and feel awesome, it also helps to prevent injuries […]read more

How to Get Tough Stains Outta Your Clothes and Mrs Meyer’s Appreciation
Did you know you can use a household all-purpose spray as a spot cleaner on your clothes? Spray on stains, let it sit at least an hour, and wash as normal! Working in kitchens, I’d always get cooking oil on my clothes and aprons, and Mrs Meyers took some of the gnarliest stains out. I’m […]read more

Race Recap: Rock’n Roll Los Angeles Half Marathon!
On October 28th, 2018 Mike and I got our new personal worsts in the half marathon distance, and it was worth every minute! We ran the Halloween-themed Rock’n Roll Los Angeles half marathon, and decided to run in costume — Mike was a hot dog and I was a taco! We didn’t know if we […]read more

Product Review: Good Karma Unsweetened Flax Milk!
One of my new favorite things to do with Mike is scout out the local Grocery Outlet and 99 Cents Store Only before we head to the standard supermarket for our groceries. It’s like a treasure hunt — we find the best stuff! Recently we were able to stock up on Daiya cheese for $2.50 […]read more
