The images of dancing juices at the finish line must have worked, because after five years, I finally have a new PR for the half marathon <3 As you guys know, Suja invited me to participate in the half marathon here in San Diego and I was apprehensive about saying yes. After injuring myself and…

Half marathon playlist

For the half marathon I didn’t run. I’m supposed to be finishing the race as this post goes up, but instead, I’m at home drinking coffee after a nice night of sleep. I’ll never know if I would have crossed the finish line triumphantly, because in my mind, I pictured myself hobbling to a medical…

The countdown is on

Hitting the wall, fuel and belts

I LOVED taking Tony Horton’s classes this past weekend at IDEA. Not only is he full of awesome tricks and valuable info -I used a couple of his moves in my Tabata class this morning- but he’s also a jokester. He called us baby pterodactyls at one point, and even though we were all in…

Tips for running faster

Did you know today is National Running Day? Who celebrated? 🙂 When I first started running, I had one goal: to finish. Whenever I finished my entire run (even if it was a walk/run combo), accomplished the distance I’d set out to run, or completed a race, I felt triumphant. It gave me confidence that…

Our first family 5k

We ran our first 5k as a family on Saturday night. (Sweaty and triumphant! Except for Liv, whose face is like, “Ew, mom”) I wasn’t sure if I’d have the gusto after a full day of teaching, but when a friend at work told me she’d be running the 5k, I couldn’t help but think…

Tucson Half Marathon Recap

Guess what, friends? I have a new race record: personal slowest half marathon. Womp woooooommmmmp. But, we had a pretty amazing time last night 🙂 It was our squadron Christmas party at Melting Pot. At first it seemed like a strange place to have such a large event -MP has a more intimate vibe and…
