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, I’ve seen many 5am mornings to run.

January has been full of visitors, from my mom to my father-in-law from England. Celebrating birthdays (friends and my husband) And chasing after an energetic and challenging toddler. šŸ˜

I’m doing a mini taper this week for a Super Bowl Sunday half marathon, theĀ Kaiser Half, which is always a fun and a fast one. I may or may not be gunning for a PR!

February is right around the corner and plenty busy, with the start of Tuesday track workouts with the Bay Birds (running team), more visitors (parents and in-laws) and a trip to Hawaii for a good friend’s wedding!
Here’s to the start of a fantastic 2015 with some of my favorites so far!
