Musings: My FIRST Best of Sacramento Party

I love my city! I’m pretty sure you know that by now, but just in case you didn’t…I had to say it AGAIN! We have a local publication, Sacramento Magazine, that has been around forever. Poppa Bear has been a subscriber forever. I always love paging through the magazine at

Musings: Winter WINEland 2018

Say you’ll be wine… It’s a little too early to say this was an early Valentine’s Day celebration, but I’m going with it — cause it works well for this post! Last year, we experienced the Lodi Wine & Chocolate weekend. This was the weekend prior to Valentine’s Day. This

Race Recap: The Giant Race 10k

The Giants may be having an AWFUL year, but their racing series is NOT! Ahh, to be so happy to run and support your team who is having the worst season (possibly) ever is humbling! Regardless of their current league standing, thousands flocked to San Francisco this weekend to show

Musings: Wide Open Walls 2017 – Sacramento, CA

Sophomore year for Sactown! Last year Krystle and I biked around and checked out the Sacramento Mural Festival that popped up. This year they vamped it up, renamed it, and marketed it like Sacramento knows how to do! Wide Open Walls 2017! About the event, straight from the website: “The

3 Day Sabbatical

Better late than never, right… I’m already finishing the third week of my new job. Surprise! I got a new job. I wanted to do a post about leaving my job at the Nut House and how I was excited to start something new. But then I figured I better wait until I actually

How NOT to be A Rook at the Sac Burger Battle

Among plenty of other things, you can add burger connoisseur to my list of self-prescribed titles! I love me some burgers, probably more than the next girly tomboy you know. I am almost always down to eat one. Except for right now, as I write this post I’m nursing a

Race Recap: Napa Valley Marathon 2015

The ‘make or break’ marathon… Everyone one says don’t decide if you like or dislike (re: hate) something only after doing it once. Or is that just for food? Anywho, I decided, after over a year sabbatical I’d attempt another marathon (CIM 2013 was my first). The lure of Napa

Race Recap: Run for a Safe Haven 2014

Not every race is a race. Something that, somewhere in the depths of my running sole, I get this, but my mind never truly understands. But this year, this race, I accepted it. I didn’t try to kill myself on this 5k, I ran it to run it and that

WIAW – The CA State Fair

Once a year I get to not give a crap and eat ALL the damn fried food I can find… Thanks, Jenn! If you’re lucky enough to host your state fair in your city, then you know what I’m talking about. I absolutely love everything about the California state fair

A Vaycay in the Whale’s Vagina!

If you don’t get that reference, then you should immediately Google it and watch that damn movie! So, I talked about it all last week…and probably the week before…but I went on a RUNcation this past weekend! Many moons ago, I convinced myself, my best friend and her hubby to
