Running while pregnant…

The holidays are full-on in motion and I’m over halfway through my 2nd trimester but I’m still running right through it all! Last weekend was an amazing racing weekend in San Francisco, specifically in the Marin Headlands for the Northface Endurance Challenge. I’ve ran this event 3 times now: The Northface marathon in 2012 TheContinue reading “Running while pregnant…”

My week of running…

Happiest of Fridays! I had a great week of running, for me, an average of 50 miles a week seems to be the sweet spot that I can maintain when I’m not training for anything in particular. (which I’m not right now) My body stays fairly healthy/ injury free and I get in lots ofContinue reading “My week of running…”

Total Body Workout 15 or 30min

I try to get in some strength training 3-4 times a week, preferably right after a run. I will use free weights on my bench independently, complete a round of post-run ‘power’ exercises (I’ll share those soon), or some glute and hip work with a resistance band, core-work and/or a ‘boot-camp’ or ‘HIIT’ type workoutContinue reading “Total Body Workout 15 or 30min”

Finding Inspiration

I have had a huge 2015 in terms of running and racing. PR’d in both the Half Marathon (SF Kaiser Half 1:32xx in February) and Marathon distance (Boston 3:15xx in April) ad well as completed the Boston 2 Big Sur Challenge then 3 weeks later ran Rim 2 Rim 2 RIm in the Grand CanyonContinue reading “Finding Inspiration”

Real food, sunny days and a soup recipe

I couldn’t agree more… Speaking of real food, all the veggies last night plus sweet potatoes and some grilled chicken…. Pretty much one of my fav meals. And the weather is almost too nice in January… Some sunny ‘soccer playing’ with my toddler… And another favorite soup recipe I’ve been eating all week! Easy toContinue reading “Real food, sunny days and a soup recipe”

January Favorites

Running, visitors, birthdays, and more! I started off the new year with a great training plan that I created for all the races I have coming up later this Spring.(Boston, Big Sur marathons and R2R2R in the Grand Canyon). So far things are feeling great and strong running-wise and since it’s been a busy month,Continue reading “January Favorites”

Back in the saddle (running shoes) again!

Back out to the trails! This past weekend, after a 2 week hiatus, I got back on the trails after my first 50 mile trail race. And it was worth the wait… It was beautiful since we’ve had so many storms and rain, the waterfalls were in full force!   We ran a point to point,Continue reading “Back in the saddle (running shoes) again!”

Cauliflower Soup + Sweet Potatoes + running thoughts

Happy Friday Eve! I made this cauliflower soup all last winter and I’ve added it back into the meal rotation the past couple months. It’s become the base for many more additions to make it hearty and unique too! I originally found it here! As for my additions I will add in fresh kale (placeContinue reading “Cauliflower Soup + Sweet Potatoes + running thoughts”

Easy workout you can do anywhere + Holiday Plans!

Hello! 1 Week until Christmas Eve! We aren’t traveling anywhere for the holiday this year, and as much as I’ll miss my family and hometown friends, I am more than happy to relax locally and enjoy the California weather over the holiday 🙂 Are you looking for a Total Body Workout to power you throughContinue reading “Easy workout you can do anywhere + Holiday Plans!”

Happy Monday and hello off-season! (For 2 weeks at least)

This weekend was one to remember. My first 50 mile distance trail race in the bag and what an amazing (seriously!) experience it was. From the course and views, to the spectacular muddy mess and blowing my expectations away… I couldn’t have asked for a better day. Rain stopped early morning so we could see theContinue reading “Happy Monday and hello off-season! (For 2 weeks at least)”
