Christine in SF + just like old times + mushroom forage hike + weeks 3 and 4 of marathon training

I don’t know about you guys, but I think meme pretty accurately captures how I feel right now. That aside, I really hope you all had fantastic weeks! The highlight of mine was having my BFF Christine visit from NYC. Christine and I use to work together during my NYC days, and we quickly became … More Christine in SF + just like old times + mushroom forage hike + weeks 3 and 4 of marathon training

I ran a LOT of easy miles and let my body take it easy after the past few solid weeks of training. Something … More Week 5 of marathon training + getting comfortable with the uncomfortable

My theme this marathon cycle + lots of yoga + week 3 of 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
