Happy HUMP DAY! Saturday evening I ran a full mile with no pain and with a huge smile on my face. It took all of my common sense, will power, strength, and memory of my injury to stop myself after just 10 minutes of running. This was my first real run since my injury in […]

Today rocked. I woke up on the wrong side of the bed and spent almost 3 hours at the DMV. But, I made it my challenge to enjoy the day. One Trader Joe’s shopping spree, lunch on my patio (in the sun!!!) with the world’s best poodle, a few chapters of my current book called […]

In January I was compelled to start training for a full marathon. I announced my goal here on the blog, which made me even more excited than I already was. In May, I ran the Whiskey Row 1/2 Marathon in Prescott, Arizona knowing that the high altitude and hilly course would be a perfect training […]

I think it’s about time I update you…. Exactly 15 days ago, it was a normal Wednesday morning. I was running, thinking about the Nike Women’s Marathon, high on life, and feeling strong. At about mile 4 (of my 8 mile planned run) I had what I would call a “tiny foot twinge“. To be […]

Today started out like most other days- I ran in the near dark, did my 7 minute plank workout, stretched, ate, and then hustled to get to work. Well, I take that back… before I actually made it out of the house I had a melt down. An all out, don’t-really-know-why-I-am-freaking-out-FREAK-OUT, and anything or […]

Happy 3-day weekend to you!!!! It’s official, San Francisco has finally warmed up! I (and every other resident) have been outside for as many sunny moments as humanly possible the past few days. It’s funny when everyone is saying goodbye to summer, we are saying hello. The best part about having a 3-10 day summer… […]

Yesterday I ran 8 miles before work and took a trip down memory lane by listening to the “Dashboard Confessional” station on Pandora. Confession 1– I still know every single word to every Dashboard song. Back story- I was a blushing, giggling mess of a teen when it came to Chistopher Carrabba of the band […]

Do you ever wonder why you run? Why you really run? Maybe there are reasons that are hard to put into words… Maybe your reason is deeply personal or maybe you don’t even have a good reason. Maybe you run to stay fit, maybe you run for fun? After I ran yesterday, I laid on […]
