Yesterday I had 20 miles on the plan – the longest run of the entire cycle. I knew this one was super important since I’m two weeks away from CIM and really needed to finish this as a confident boost. Even though the pressure was on, the entire time I thought: I’m gonna miss this SO … More Week 11 of marathon training + I’m really going to miss this
Between recovering from my half marathon and traveling this past weekend, I didn’t get too much running in the last week. I flew down to Texas on Friday for my very good friend Shao’s wedding, where I was actually in the wedding party! I was hoping to sneak in a few miles between all the … More Week 10 of marathon training + life comes first
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. It’s not easy to accept that something you worked so hard for isn’t going to happen. The half … More When things don’t go to plan + week 6 of marathon training
Another solid week of running. One special highlight was doing THREE yoga sessions this week. First was on Wednesday with Anna. We did Yoga to the People which is an organization that offers donation-based yoga classes in the Mission. They’re pretty laid back and let you go at your own pace. I think we’ll be … More My theme this marathon cycle + lots of yoga + week 3 of training
I’ve shared on this blog a lot about my travelling adventures as a consultant, but truth be told, 90% of the time I’m working remotely. I’m blessed to have a job where for the most part I can work from anywhere: the SF office, my apartment, my parents house…it gives me great flexibility but also … More A day in the life as a remote consultant
Wow, is all I can say. My first days in SF have been everything I thought it would be, and more. I don’t know how I got so lucky, and I am just so beyond happy to be here and to start my new live in this beautiful city. I flew in on Saturday night. By 11am … More How did I get so lucky…first days in SF!
Gonna keep this short and sweet with mostly photos, or else this will be a word dump of me being sentimental. I’m so grateful for every wonderful moment from this past week and to be leaving NYC on such a high note. Next time I blog I’ll be a San Francisco resident!!! Sunset picnic with Michelle … More Last moments in NYC
I’m so excited to share that I will be moving to San Francisco at the end of May!!! This is incredibly bittersweet to share to everyone. It was somewhat of a looooong journey to get to this point, but I could not be more excited and ready to start a new chapter of my life … More I have some pretty BIG news…
One of my biggest struggles is balancing priorities. Between making a good impression at work, seeing my friends, training for 2 marathons a year, and on top of that studying for my actuarial exams (each sitting requires 300-500 hours of study!), sometimes I question if I can do it all. Exams have never come easy to … More Finding balance between work + life + studying + running
I love winter running. I know my blizzard experience in my last post might indicate otherwise, but having grown up in upstate NY, I loved the winter season ever since I was little. And as I grew up and took on running, I instantly took a liking to winter running. I love the energy the cold gives … More Winter running: what the heck do I wear?!
