5 Reasons Why Everyone Should Watch a Marathon

On December 3 I watched my first marathon — and it was amazing. I’ve run 13 marathons and a ton of halves, but I’ve never actually seen the top finishers of a race cross the finish line. CIM (California International Marathon) is an incredible race for many reasons, but this year as a relay runner

Returning to CIM: My Road to Boston

One year later, and here I am at the California International Marathon again. Last year, this was where I earned my coveted BQ qualifying time. It’s only fitting that my journey to Boston begins here in Sacramento. My injury (a hip stress fracture) sidelined me for the last few months, and it sucked. One of

#CrutchLife: An Update on Life Lately

Gratitude

A little over a week ago, I found out that the nagging pain in my hip was actually a femoral neck stress fracture. While part of me was relieved to finally have an answer to the pain that had already been preventing me from running, the reality also set in that this was a real injury, one that would sideline me for awhile (6 weeks to be exact).

Race Recap: SeaWheeze Half Marathon

I set a pretty lofty goal for SeaWheeze — one of the first half marathons I decided to race in several years (Austin doesn’t count because #hills). I wanted to run a 1:35 or faster…and it didn’t happen. Neither did a PR (by 6 seconds…come on!). And, I’m totally okay with the outcome! I learned
