I may no longer be calling it the “dreadmill.” After much anticipation from the running community, RacePace, Houston’s first treadmill studio is up and running. With temperatures quickly beginning to rise, their soft opening comes at the perfect time for Houstonian runners. I was lucky to be part of their first ever RP Speed class on
Whoever said two miles was easy was a big, fat liar. I’m telling you from first hand experience, it’s not. Especially when it’s 4 p.m. in the afternoon in hot, humid Texas. While it may not have been easy, the Bayou Bash Relays, hosted by the Bayou City Road Runners at the lovely TC Jester Park, sure was a blast. I did relays all the time growing up as a swimmer, but when it comes to sports on land, I tend to fly solo. Running this past weekend was a solid reminder of how much I actually love being part of a team.
Sprint for Life is one of those races that has always been on my list, but then something else comes up. In fact, my dad has done it every year and I haven’t! This year, my dad was out of town so we were flip flopped. While this race had been on my radar for
I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again. I LOVE spring time running. Without any big races to train for, the pressure is off and the small, fun races are on! One of those races was the second annual Autism Speaks 8K in Sugar Land. I was lucky enough to be asked to lead
You probably gathered this fact from the name of my blog, I love running. But here’s the “truth bomb,” I wasn’t always a “runner.” I laced up my running shoes for my first race in 2010. And in the six plus years that followed, I’ve racked up 13 marathons and a bunch (I really couldn’t count)
I love running, I love marathons and I love being able to share that passion with the world (or at least my community). I’ve represented the Chevron Houston Marathon for the last three years as a race ambassador and this year, I’m also an ambassador for CIM (California International Marathon) which side note, just opened registrations
One of the things I love about Austin is that the terrain is so different than my home in Houston less than three hours away. Having moved from Hawaii where I ran hills daily, to Houston where running hills takes some planning and creativity, the Austin Half Marathon is always pretty humbling.
I love the Chevron Houston Marathon, and if you know me, that’s probably no surprise. This year was my fourth time running and third year as an ambassador for the race. With unseasonably warm temperatures, the race and its runners were definitely up for a challenge. As always, I find myself so impressed by how
So you finished the marathon, now what? That’s the feeling I always get after running a race. What’s next? What do I need to do to ensure proper recovery so I can get back out there and chase another goal? Proper recovery and staying active is the perfect way to stay healthy and cure the
Taper gets a bad rap. From unexplained muscle soreness to nerves and uncontrollable hunger, it can get weird. But for runners who want to PR, BQ and have a really solid race, it’s one of the most important parts of training. Even with the weirdness, I love taper! And, with my taper in full swing for the Chevron Houston Marathon
