    Race Recap: lululemon San Diego 10k

    Only lululemon could get me on a plane to run a 10k. So pardon the delay on this race recap, but I’m glad I’m getting to it before the year ends. 2019 was supposed to ONLY be the Giant Race series, but once I received the email about this race, I knew I had to at least think about it. It definitely prompted a text to my running friend, Tara. Actually, I threw the idea of running the race as a girl’s trip to a couple of people. In the end, it was Tara and I who would make it a girl’s weekend, which was totally great for me. We’d…

    Cali Girl Does San Diego: Girls Long Weekend

    Four days in sunny SD bliss! Lil had to head down to SD for a wedding, so she asked if I wanted to make a fun weekend out of it. Uh, yeah, duh! Then I invited Monique too, so it became round two of our Disneyland trip in March for my birthday. I crowdsourced FB for recommendations and everyone came in clutch. I saved all the reccos in my Yelp Stay Classy SD collection of places to visit, things to do, and places to eat! I thought I’d share what and where we ate but also places we visited: Snooze, An A.M. Eatery – breakfast pot pie and coffeeSan Diego…

    Race Recap: San Diego Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon

    I finally did a Rock ‘n’ Roll race! Some hate them, some love them…I was just a girl trying to run one! Finally, after years of hearing of them, I finally committed to running one. Hoopla, schoopla…it was going down AND I would be taking a mini vacation or long weekend (which ever one you prefer to use) for the race. Win-Win in my book. In addition to this being my first RNR, I also convinced my best friend (C) and her hubbs (R) to run it with me. I don’t remember why or what the significance was, but for some reason all of the RNR series was discounted. Knowing…

    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 sign up for the Rock-N-Roll San Diego half marathon with me! This was the weekend it was going down! A long weekend vacation to So Cal with a looming race hanging over our heads! Truth be told, completely, not one ounce of the three of us wanted to run this race. But, being the baller-on-a-budget that I am, I was…
