For Surf City, I was excited to fly in to So Cal to pace my best friend for her very first half marathon! The day before, I taught a full-day design bootcamp. It was a full class, so I was on my feet the entire day. Months beforehand, I had registered for the race and … Continue reading Race Recap: Surf City Half Marathon 2018
After being flogged at work and school for about six weeks straight, I was able to score a week or so off to hit up the slopes in Japan.
