Today I was suppose to run the Virgin Sport SF Bay Half Marathon, but unfortunately it got cancelled due to the wildfires in the Bay area and the unhealthy air quality that has taken over SF this week.

I think we’ll be… Continue reading My theme this marathon cycle + lots of yoga + week 3 of training

This was one of those weeks that made me feel this way…anywho, I won’t go into detail on this, instead I’m going to… Continue reading Goodbye Kumar + Treasure Island + off the grid picnic + family time is my favorite
