I did it! Goal accomplished :) The 3rd and final half marathon was ran and completed successfully last weekend. Am I happy this goal is over? Yes. Yes, I am. Did I learn anything about myself along this journey to qualifying for the Half F... Read more

Waking Up The Runner's Way...

Friday, November 06, 2015      4 comments

A friend of mine shared this quote (below) and it really resonated with me. I've been a gymnast, an ice skater, a volleyball player and a runner. Each sport brought its own depth of "waking up", but running is what broke it all open for me. I... Read more

This past weekend was the Los Angeles half marathon. This was half #2 of 3 on my journey to qualifying for the Half Fanatics. Next up is Las Vegas in 21 days. Thankfully, no healing is required after this run :) It was an adventure though: ... Read more

First I wanted to thank everyone for the well wishes on my run today. I always appreciate the support I receive from my Sparkfriends. Unfortunately, this is a run I will not forget. The run itself went fine, but circumstances surrounding the ... Read more

A Lake, A Puppy and A Family...

Monday, September 07, 2015      9 comments

The holiday weekend is just about over. Finally home after a lovely visit with my daughter and her family up north. I must say it was a much-needed, much-enjoyed holiday. Sometimes you just don't realize how much is on your shoulders until yo... Read more

A Journey Filled With Lightbulbs...

Wednesday, August 12, 2015      9 comments

One of the things I love so much about running is a thing I call my "Lightbulb Moments." These are moments of clarity that only seem to show up when I'm in the middle of a long run or a faster-than-usual run. Either way, these moments normally... Read more

My Journey To Being A Fanatic...

Sunday, August 02, 2015      10 comments

Summer training is up and running...literally...for me. I don't know what it is about training in the summertime, but I love the challenge of it. This morning's long run was simply a fabulous run for me. Something about being out as the sun i... Read more

Summer Stories ...

Wednesday, July 01, 2015      13 comments

The summer is certainly a hot, humid one so far! It's making it difficult to keep my training on track like I've planned. I've been able to work with the weather a little bit and run outside, but I've needed to bring it inside the gym on the t... Read more

Finding Awareness ...

Saturday, June 13, 2015      11 comments

About 12 years ago, a company I worked for decided to send me to a driving class. I took on some new roles at that job and needed to use their vehicles to do some tasks. It was a requirement of theirs that anyone driving their vehicles go thro... Read more

Blog #100 ...

Friday, June 05, 2015      9 comments

April 25th, 2012. That was the first time I had ever written a blog. I remember writing that blog and looking at that *publish* button and hesitating for a little bit. It was a simple blog that very broadly talked about what was happening in ... Read more

Santa Rosa Plateau ...

Tuesday, June 02, 2015      13 comments

I've made it a monthly goal of mine to find a new activity to try, or a new place to explore. For the month of May, I hiked a 7-mile trail at the Santa Rosa Plateau. How lucky for me to have this beautiful ecological reserve located just a few... Read more

Time For Another Whole30 ...

Saturday, May 23, 2015      7 comments

Sunday starts another round of whole30 for me. Lately I've physically felt off and just not the best I know I can feel. This is partially due to my odd sleep schedule, but also due to some eating habits I've let slip. My first round of ... Read more

No More Gadgets...

Saturday, May 23, 2015      7 comments

I must admit, I am a gadget junkie. I've been thinking about going gadget-less for my training towards the next 3 halfs I have planned. It's been on my mind a lot. And then a friend of mine shared this article at just the right time one morni... Read more

Monday, May 11, 2015      8 comments

This past weekend was the Girls on the Go 5k fun run. This is the 3rd year in a row that I've participated in this one. It's ran at Mission Bay in San Diego, which just happens to be one of my favorite places to run. It was also Mother's Day ... Read more

All that I know, all that I am and all that I will ever be, I learned from my mom :) I'm feeling so blessed to be able to say what an amazing woman my mother is. It... Read more
