Race Recap: Rock ‘n Roll Half Marathon Los Angeles 2013

I’ll never again take the sunshine for granted. I departed from Seattle on a gray, wet afternoon. Up until the race, my runs had been wet and chilly. I packed my warm weather gear — a running skirt and a t-shirt. Arriving on Friday night, my boyfriend and I headed to a great pho restaurant in his area, which was…

Would you be interested in joining my virtual training team?

Hey ladies and gents! I just posted a new vlog after a year-long hiatus. (Warning: it’s pretty much the same thing I’m blogging here.) So after reading about a friend who just joined Team in Training for Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge next January, I clicked through to another blog from a charity runner who was conducting a similar…

Desert Double Down with Dress For Success

So after a bit of debate, and even a bit of opinion crowdsourcing, I’ve decided to go ahead with the Rock ‘n Roll Marathon Arizona. Although not asĀ grandioseĀ as the Disney Goofy Challenge, I figure that can wait for another year (maybe next) when I’m a bit more prepared both physically and financially. It’d also be nice to get some friends…
