Rock’N Roll San Diego Race Weekend Recap!

It’s been about four days since Mike and I ran Rock’n Roll San Diego and I’m still sore from that hilly course! This year I ran it almost exactly ten minutes slower than last year, which was a little bit of a bummer for me. Last year, I did a lot of speed training to […]

Mike and I got back from San Diego a couple hours ago from Rock’n Roll SD, and I’m still feeling the glow and excitement of our visit. We got on the road to SD yesterday afternoon for a whirlwind 18 hours of eating, sleeping and running a half marathon! While there are so many delicious […]

Vegan Date Night in the Inland Empire!

Back in December, Mike and I moved to the Inland Empire from Los Angeles, or more specifically, Santa Monica. Of course I get asked why we would leave, but the truth is, we had no choice. I moved in with Mike in July, and shortly after that his building was sold, and we were asked […]

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 […]

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 […]

Pickle Juice Shots, Minus the Whiskey

The runner and pickle juice – it’s a thing! The first time I heard about pickle juice shots, a friend was running NYC Marathon with little training. Though, little training for him is my idea of tough training – he got second place in a half marathon recently and is a Boston Qualifier. It just […]

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 […]
