Back on Track: Yoga Revolution, Running and Cycling!

It’s a been an emotional couple of weeks since Mike and I decided to defer the Zion Half Marathon! Personally, I’ve been feeling a little bit lost, trying to figure out what’s next, both training and life-wise. We got jobs, in opposite directions from each other (mine 4 miles from from where we are currently […]

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 Rock’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 […]

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 […]

I Bought A Three Day Juice Cleanse in a Moment of Desperation (and Curiosity)

I bought a three day, Pressed Juicery cleanse in January, and I absolutely loved it. I loved having all those juices, everyday. I didn’t cleanse per se, but I did drink about three to four green juices a day for the course of about five days! AND IT WAS AWESOME. I had just been pretty […]

RnR San Antonio Marathon Race Weekend Recap! Part One – How We Got There!

As I’m getting ready to go to Arizona for a Rock’n Roll race weekend in a couple days, I find myself reminiscing about my previous RnR race, in San Antonio last month! I love this race series. Mike calls them Razzle Dazzle races, and maybe they are, with the bands, and the medals and the […]

New Year, Clean Slate, New Beginnings

Welcome to 2018! Whether you make resolutions, intentions, or simply nurse a hangover the first 24 hours, here we are! I don’t set resolutions anymore, and I like the idea of intentions, but the jargon rubs me the wrong way. Goals! That’s what I set! This year I would like to run 1000 miles, and […]

2017 Marathon Recap! (Falling in love with the 26.2, and then needing some space)

Guess who’s back, back again?! It’s been awhile! Mike and I started this blog a little over a year ago and we never had the chance to go forward with it the way that we’d have liked to! It began as a way to chronicle my training cycle (plus my nerves) going into my first […]

Workout of the Day!

I’m three days away from the Rock’N Roll San Diego half, and only slightly freaking out. I basically had a nervous break-down two nights ago, and feeling much better since writing it all out. MUCH BETTER, NOT LYING AT ALL. Anyway, been working on my hydration, carb loading, sleeping, and tonight I got to stretching. […]

Chasing the PR Might Be Killing Me (But Setting Goals Keeps Us Alive, Right?)

My next half marathon, the Rock’N Roll San Diego half, is in 5 days! It will be my fourth 13.1 mile race, and I’ve been training hard to get a sub-2, which means running it in under two hours. I came close last November (it’s now almost June) at the Rock’N Roll Vegas half with […]

Long Time, No Posts

Hello! It’s been awhile, and I miss you lil running blog. I think about you all the time. Here’s the deal: my beloved Macbook Pro bit the dust, I completed the LA Marathon and then what felt like almost immediately, started training for another half marathon. And while it’s not impossible to blog on a […]

Running While Sick

It is February 24th and the Los Angeles Marathon is March 19th. I have been sick three times since November, so as you can imagine, training has not been going to plan. I have run 18 miles, all at once! That’s progress. But I have skipped out on numerous training runs with my run club, […]
