Post-travel and summer blues + after-burn show

And in a blink of an eye…summer is over! Is anyone seriously depressed about that fact or is it just me? Last week was a weird, emotional, yet uplifting one…I’m usually okay transitioning after big trips, but after Nicaragua I had major post-travel blues. I think it stemmed from the larger fact that my crazy … More Post-travel and summer blues + after-burn show

Antisocial adventure + finally exploring D.C. + staying present with “limbo”

It’s been an interesting week, that’s for sure. After my spiritual retreat two weekend ago, I was “glowing” for a few days recapping my experience to my eager friends and coworkers – I was hugely touched by how genuinely interested loved ones were in hearing about this unique experience, and sharing let me re-live it … More Antisocial adventure + finally exploring D.C. + staying present with “limbo”

Settled with chaos + random shenanigans of my week

Hi friends! Hope you all had a great weekend filled with relaxing summer fun 🙂 My intention last week was to slow things down, take time to reflect and transition back to life after my Philippines trip. I feel centered and happy with the reflection (see my last post!) and feel like I’m present with … More Settled with chaos + random shenanigans of my week

Abrupt transition + a very SF weekend + Ocean Beach bonfire

Hey there! I cannot believe it’s only been one week since my Philippines trip. The transition back to reality was quite abrupt, not because I’m not happy to be back since I do love it here and feel like I’m in a great spot with my life in SF, but more so because right when … More Abrupt transition + a very SF weekend + Ocean Beach bonfire

10 flights + last stop Austin + Cinco de Mayo festivities + change of plans

It’s been a week since my marathon and life has really had a 180. I basically took a full week off of exercising last week and it felt amazing to have the mental break and sleep in every morning. It’s been a weird shift going from working so hard the past few months to total … More 10 flights + last stop Austin + Cinco de Mayo festivities + change of plans

Keepin’ it real in peak week + live art and surprise birthdays + upcoming month of travel + week 15 of marathon training

This was the highest mileage week of the training cycle at 38 miles! Not gonna lie, I felt a lot of pressure the whole week. The daunting 20 miles was coming up and I felt like there was no cushion to fail. I chose a 2-week taper versus 3- 4 weeks as lots of runners … More Keepin’ it real in peak week + live art and surprise birthdays + upcoming month of travel + week 15 of marathon training

Life energy + Spark Social evening + weeks 13 and 14 of marathon training

Something that has been on my mind is life energy… The beginning of the week was a bit emotional for me as I was circling through negative thoughts over a situation. I am the definition of a worry-er. I tend to stress about every little detail of my life –> you would laugh if I … More Life energy + Spark Social evening + weeks 13 and 14 of marathon training

Opulent Temple white party + new scoot + role of running in life + what I listen to when I run

I have about a million things to unpack from the week – both on the running front and the life front! We are down to the wire on marathon training –> 4 weeks away! I notice that my runs drastically improve when I’m not drinking alcohol/kava/things to help me sleep (thank you insomnia), and so … More Opulent Temple white party + new scoot + role of running in life + what I listen to when I run
