To tell you the truth, I started off my race weekend a bit disappointed. A few months back, I had registered for the full marathon. However, with my lack of training and inability to truly run a full marathon in less than 4 and a half hours, I had settled into the mentality that I … Continue reading Race Recap: 2013 Zappos Rock ‘n Roll Half Marathon Las Vegas
So on a whim I decided to try a swim/bike/run routine this morning. At first I thought that I'd only for a nice long swim, but figured that now was a good of time as any to take an assessment of where I'm at, physically, for the triathlon in November. Let's just say I've got … Continue reading Getting Back Into The Swim/Bike/Run Routine
So after what turned out to be more of a cheat day than a cheat meal, I set about my Monday to go back to my usual staple of veggies and fish. Monday started harmlessly enough with leftover curries from the weekend. Most of the broth remained but the bulk of the veggies were gone, … Continue reading Paleo Day 8…Down 6 Pounds, Here Comes The Cravings, 100 Weeks Left
One last post before I hit the road... Hope you are all having (or will have later tonight) a wonderful New Years! This year I accomplished a lot. Starting with a small, short personal challenge to run for 21 days, it has blossomed into a newfound passion that has bled into every aspect of my … Continue reading See Ya, 2011!
I've decided in the short amount of time that I've been working out that there are two iPhone apps that I could not live without. One I've been using for almost a year now...the other, I've been using for just a few days. What's great is that I think they really complement each other.

However, something you have to realize is that everyone has a busy life, a demanding family, and lots of time commitments. However, what separates runners from non-runners is that a runner makes the time for them. Health and fitness … Continue reading Fitness Friday: Someone Busier Than You Is Running Right Now
At this weekend's Zappos Rock n Roll Marathon weekend, they hosted a few other events...including their very own Stiletto Dash! The Stiletto Dash was a 50-yard race in (a minimum of) 3 inch heels on a fancy red carpet. Dashers sprinted through The Palazzo's Casino and raised money for charity while racing for a … Continue reading Who Dares to Brave the Stiletto Dash?
What a race! First of all, congratulations to everyone who finished the race. It was definitely a fun yet challenging course, based on all of the feedback I've sifted through online. All in all I think the race was a success -- with 44,000 runners on the Vegas Strip at night, there was bound to … Continue reading Race Recap: 2011 Zappos Rock n Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon
As you may already know, I hit a bit of a rut with my training a few weeks ago. Before the bout got better, it got worse...by a lot. Eventually I did nothing -- no swimming, no biking, no running. I was pretty low on motivation. I couldn't get friends to join me. I was … Continue reading Recent Read: Kara Goucher’s Running for Women: From First Steps to Marathons

I'll also be available … Continue reading Want to Join a Charity Marathon Team?
