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 […]

From Street Athlete to Gym Rat: Learning Confidence and How to Cross Train like a Pro!

I have had gym memberships on and off for my entire adult life. I played on sports teams growing up and was on the swim team in high school – I thought PE was fun, except volleyball, I hated volleyball. I actually worked at the local gym in high school, starting with the Kid’s Club […]

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 […]

Race Weekend Recap: Valley Crest Half Marathon!

I just ran Valley Crest Half Marathon, which is kind of a big deal because it was my very first trail race! I found the race one evening while looking up races in SoCal, checked out their website, and slept on the idea for a few days. I signed up about three weeks ago, the same […]

Workout of the Day!

I haven’t been running very much lately, which is pretty odd for me! This month, May, I will probably log in around 40 miles total, running-wise. Cycling however, is much different! I’ve logged in 160.4 miles already this month! I cycle to and from work, and the commute to work is uphill. I can already […]

Cycling Through

The end of April has not gone as expected. I was proud of all the workouts, the running, the yoga streak, and then not going to Zion at the last minute took the wind out of my sails. I know I’m going to get up and dust myself off, but I’ve taken some time off […]

Yoga, Bikes, Runs and Earth Day! Viva la Yoga Revolution and Ciclavia!

It’s been a very busy few days, and I realize as life takes over, with my new job, travel races and keeping up with my workout regime, blogging may fall to the wayside again. I’m choosing not to beat myself up over it; the regular blog posts were a way to keep myself occupied and […]

Stretching and Streaking My Way Through April!

The last two days I have been on a really successful workout streak! I’ve started my shifts at 3pm, which allows me to wake up on my own time and then hit the mat. Well, make coffee and then hit the mat. I’ve also had the time to squeeze some short runs in, and it’s […]

Yoga Revolution Day Five: Practice Rhythm

Today was day number six at my new job, and my first day back after one day off. I needed that day off to relax and decompress after getting so much new information thrown my way! Today I felt much calmer and well-informed, and it made the job so much easier. I made flash cards […]

Yoga Revolution Day Four, Prana Practice! Super stoked I’ve been able to keep up with a practice everyday so far, even if it’s just been four days!

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 […]
