Cabo Vacation!

The last 10 days I was away on an amazing and long anticipated vacation to Cabo San Lucas with B! We have been planning this trip since the beginning of the year and it was so awesome, I really enjoyed everything and was able to relax. If you’d like to see more photos you can see them on the post so click below!

We stayed at the Fiesta Americana Grand and did the “All-Inclusive” option. There really wasn’t more that we needed or wanted and the only thing we ended up paying for were the cigars B bought and our massages!

Marathon Training Must Haves

It’s always scary when you sign up for a race. No matter the distance, there’s something about it that is exciting yet daunting to me. It gives me excitement and something to look forward too, yet makes me scared at the same time. There are a few things that make training for a marathon easier and I thought I would share a few of my favorites that got me through training for Mountains to Beach. I have a pretty sensitive stomach so I love these bars as they seem to be gentle enough to eat and trying a bunch of different things to see if they work while running isn’t exactly the most fun experiment!

Weekend at the Lake + Ride 7 Winner!

The weekend went by all too fast… we spent a few quick hours at the Lake on Saturday and it was great to have a Saturday morning off! The weather at the lake was GORGEOUS, we couldn’t have asked for a better day and though the water was a bit too cold for me, it was still really fun.

2014 La Palma 10K Race Recap

I run this race every year and it’s always so much fun! I grew up in La Palma and the race course travels on the paths I used to run throughout high school so it always brings back memories.

This year B was lucky enough to have the day off and it was great, we brought both George and Sophie, which George was going to run with me and B was going to hold Sophie while we ran. She is a much better dog in public than George so it’s always interesting trying to wrangle them together out of the house.
