Running While Vegan

Variety of works

Job Training Day Four, Yoga Revolution Day Three, and Yoga for Connection

Day four of my new job, which meant meeting new members of management and processing more information. I’m exhausted. I have tomorrow off, and am excited for a long run. I’ll also be making flash cards to remember important points for the job, but before that, am stoked to be able to hit the pavement, […]

Yoga Revolution Day Two

Day two of Yoga Revolution and day three of job training! I’ve been making sure to wake up early enough to fit in a practice the last two days – it helps me feel ready for the day, and I don’t trust myself to be committed to a post-work practice! Running is different for some […]

Per my post yesterday, things are working out in my favor and I start training at a new job tomorrow! My entire adult career, I’ve been a baker/pastry chef and over half of it has been focusing on vegan and gluten-free goodies. Recently, I decided to step away from the kitchen and try my hand […]

Run/Walking My Way to Positive Thinking (When I Want to Pull the Covers over my Head and Give In to the Anxiety)

Mike and I just got back from the┬áRock’n Roll San Francisco half marathon, which went really well! It took place three weeks after LA Marathon, so that didn’t give us tons of time to recover. Last year I struggled getting back to running after LAM, I took some time off and the first five miles […]

Recipe! Jackfruit Adobo!

Before I get started, I would like to say that this adobo recipe is directly inspired from Panlasang Pinoy’s Chicken Adobo recipe! I made very few changes, the major one being that I veganized his recipe. I don’t want to take credit, rather show you the ways I adjusted the recipe for jackfruit. I’ve also […]

Restaurant Review! Bright Star Thai Vegan in Rancho Cucamonga!

I’m going to preface this review by saying, I’m usually only going to post about restaurants and, in general anything, that I like. I battle everyday to see the world with a more positive outlook, and so I would rather focus my time and energy adding a little more light into the world. Restaurants have […]

Vegan Meatball Subs and Tacos! (Or, Joey Doesn’t Share Food!)

A little while ago, Miyoko’s Kitchen contacted me to to create a couple recipes with their vegan cheese, and I envisioned a healthy(ish), colorful meatball sub! Mike and I had just started dating and he was the biggest fan of Friends I had ever met. Let’s just say I’ve seen the “Joey doesn’t share food” […]

Tacos! Tacos! Tacos!

Figuring out what to eat for dinner can be so, so hard, especially when you are deciding amongst more than just yourself! There is a familarity with mine and Mike’s conversation surrounding where or what to eat that goes something like: “What do you want?” “I don’t know, what do you want?” “I asked first, […]

Release For My Mind, Hips and Lower Back! (I Need A Job, So I’m Giving Myself One)

In being consistent with my run streak in which I am committed to at least one mile a day, every day, I want to try writing at least one blog post a day for the next seven days and get back into my yoga practice. I’ve been feeling super blah, after the LA Marathon almost […]

Broken Run Streaks, Starting Over and Looking Forward!

On March 25th, a week after LA Marathon, I broke my 52 day run streak. It wasn’t necessarily on purpose, as I had every intention of running at least one mile that Sunday! I ran after my 20 mile training run and the LA Marathon, I ran when I was feeling under the weather and […]

Los Angeles Marathon Finisher! 2018 Edition!

On Sunday, March 18 2018, I finished my second Los Angeles Marathon and fifth marathon. This post feels hard to write, because I can’t believe it’s all over. As an ambassador, I lived and breathed this race, as well as the Santa Monica Classic and Pasadena Half, for about eight months. As an ambassador I […]

We just got back from New Orleans last night, after spending about 5 days down there! It was a wild time, a first visit to New Orleans for us both, and a race we would definitely participate in again next year! I’ve spent a little bit of time in the South, as I was born […]
