Smokey Sweet Potato Boat Recipe!

Last fall I was asked by Miyoko’s Creamery to develop a healthy recipe using their vegan cheese product! Mike had told me about the nutritional benefits of sweet potatoes, especially imprtant for runners, and so I made this recipe with him as my muse. He also gets photography credit! I was trying to cone up […]

Vegan Nutrition on a Budget

When I was training for my first half marathon a little over a year ago, I was broke and lost about how to feed myself while doing long runs. I needed to get the most bang for my buck, and as someone who had spent their adulthood scared of carbs, I was confused. Carbs or […]

On June 4, 2017 I ran my fourth half marathon! It took place in San Diego, as part of the Rock’N Roll marathon series. This was my second RNR half, and I am a big fan of this race series! Mike and I might run RNR Vegas (I’m still working on my friend Britney) and […]

Workout of the Day!

I’ve been feeling really blah this week; the daily grind + the end of a training cycle have me in a mood that only wants to come home, eat everything in sight and fall asleep watching TV. Today is my day off work, and I want it to be as productive as possible, while still […]

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. […]

Jackfruit for Every Meal (or Jackfruit, Jackfruit, the Magical Fruit!)

Mike and I are trying to eat better. As vegans, it’s like, we already eat a plant-based diet, so what’s the problem? My taste for processed foods and candy has gone through the roof with all the new vegan products (Meats! Cheeses! Cheesecake! Mac’n cheese! Pizza! Corndogs! Donuts! GIVE ME ALL OF IT!!! ) available, […]

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 […]

Workout of the Day!

In preparation for the LA Marathon, I’ve been incorporating more yoga into my routine. January and Feburary always get to me with the SADS and I fall away from my healthy habits in favor of naps and winter TV. I had a hard time running after work when it was dark and rainy; I just […]

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, […]

Arms, Arms, Arms!

Running is so great and I love it, but it’s not the be all, end all of my fitness routine. It wasn’t even what I started with when I began working out again. I went straight to yoga, pilates and arm workouts, until I felt like I had built up enough strength, endurance, and stamina […]

The Road to Marathon Day: Back to Back Half Marathons

I never thought I would find the strength within myself to run a marathon. The jury is still out, as I haven’t run one yet! BUT! Marathon training is in effect, and for training I ran 14 miles last weekend. That is my longest run to date! A half marathon is 13.1 miles. I will […]

Eight Weeks to 26.2, Halfway to Nowhere.

At this point in time, I am halfway through two workouts – Yoga With Adriene’s Yoga Revolution and BlacklistLA’s 16 week marathon training. I have been giving both my best, and at the same time, being kind to myself and listening to my body. I completed a half marathon right before marathon training; in my mind […]

Britney’s Running Playlist (and now yours too)!

Since my teen years, I’ve been running off and on. It hasn’t been until recently that I’ve upped the distance past 5 miles, and stuck with it long term. In high school I was on the swim team, and on weekends I’d work out at the gym with my dad, using the treadmill or stair-stepper, plus weight […]
