I’ve totally been digging the unicorn trend lately. I may not be into consuming all of the sugar it involves, but I’m a pink girl (and Lisa Frank fanatic) at heart so this trend pretty much makes me swoon.

Post-Marathon Blues

It’s officially been three weeks since I ran the Chevron Houston Marathon. It was a tough day and my body was pretty beat up afterwards due to some lingering injuries (read about that here), so I decided to take some time off. In fact, yesterday was my first run since the race, making it one

Houston is always my favorite race of the year, and while I didn’t PR and dealt with some injuries along the way, this race was no exception.
