Running the Day Away

So I never updated after my Memorial Day race with the fam.  I went pretty well!  My sister did the first leg, which was a 5k, my dad did the second leg which was cycling 18k, and I ran the last leg for another 5k.  I have no idea if we "placed" or what our … Continue reading Running the Day Away


May Day

May is shaping up to be a fun month!  I am still broke as shit, but there are some cool activities going on in the area, and that I got tickets to awhile ago.  Next weekend the Amgen Tour of California starts in Long Beach, which is about 30-45 minutes from where I live, so … Continue reading May Day

The Highs and Lows

This past week of running has been very interesting, full of highs and lows!  I went for a pretty simple 2 mile run on Friday night, but at the end of the run, I had ended up with small hives all over my upper body.  So naturally, I went to Target and grabbed an antihistamine … Continue reading The Highs and Lows

Technology Hates Me

My tech has not been good to me this week!  It's such a first world problem, but I think we get so used to relying on technology that it can be hard to function when it doesn't work correctly. First I got some emails from Apple, and apparently someone decided to hack my account and … Continue reading Technology Hates Me

Trying to Find Balance?

Wow has last week been crazy!  I feel like that is just my life now, but hopefully everything will start to settle down once I have an apartment, and I get into the groove of my jobs. Last week was particularly crazy though because the company that I teach fitness classes for had an event … Continue reading Trying to Find Balance?

Running In More Ways Than One

Wow!  Having two jobs is great, and I actually really enjoy both jobs, but it is hectic!!  On Saturday (yesterday) I worked in 3 different locations, for 2 different employers, in the span of 3-4 hours.  It was crazy. I started off my morning at 9 am teaching a bootcamp at an apartment complex in … Continue reading Running In More Ways Than One
