    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 their support. Putting one foot in front of another for 3.1 miles, 6.2 miles, or 13.1 miles, we showed our spirit and love for our FAVORITE team! Lil and I committed to being Triple Baggers this year, which means we ran the Rivercats 5k, San Jose Giants 5 miler, and we finished it with the SF Giant Race 10k. These…

    Race Recap: The Giant Race 10k

    I may be a crappy Giants fan this year… …but I wouldn’t miss this race! Literally, this was the first time I’ve been to AT&T Park this year. I’m really starting to feel like a faux Giants fan. Yes, I follow the games via my App and watch as many as I can catch (since we don’t have cable), but I haven’t been a physical supporter like normal. It kinda makes me sad. Anywho, that’s besides the point of me running this race. As every year goes, I make (re: ask and she always says yes) Lil run this race with me. To my surprise, J said he wanted to…

    Race Recap: The Giant Race 10k

    My team > Your team Via Just sayin’! It’s only the sixth annual SF Giant Race. It seems like it’s been around longer than that, but I guess my time perception is always off. I think it is amazing that the SF Giants put together three different fun runs for their organization and farm teams (Scottsdale, San Jose, and SF). That being said, I cannot believe this is my first race recap for this race, even though I’ve been running it for a few years now (missed 2013 & 2014). I’m also wishing and praying that now that the Sacramento Rivercats are their AAA team, maybe they’ll think of hosting…

    Race Recap: Run to Feed the Hungry 2014

    I’m a Race Rebel! Only when it comes to this race. If you’re a new-ish reader, you can read last year’s recap here, I don’t want to bore everyone with redundancy! Let’s just say, with 27,000 runner’s each year, I deem it acceptable to hop in about a quarter of a mile into the race. They’ve gotten smarter over the years and blocked the entrance so you can walk to the start line and hop in, that being said…I just wait my happy butt on a random little island near the start and hop in after the fast-ies pass. Yeah, take your judgey pants off! I pay for the race,…

    Race Recap: Super Sunday Run 10k

    First race of the year! Obligatory race IG collage! Since my 49er’s didn’t make it, why not get my run on…since I’m not that vested in the game. I’d be lying if I didn’t also admit that SRA had a special if you bundled this race with their 10 miler race, you got a discount ($60 total). So really, I’m just sad my boys in red and gold weren’t playing in the big game! Sacramento Running Association is well known locally, but is more recognizable as the organization that puts on the California International Marathon. This race has been around for awhile, but this was my first time ever running it.…

    Race Recap: Run to Feed the Hungry 2013

    Why does everyone else in America call it the Turkey Trot?!? Sounds ridiculous to me, but maybe that’s because I’ve been conditioned to calling our traditional Thanksgiving Day run “Run to Feed the Hungry”. Happy 20th Anniversary #RTFTH! I wish I knew how many exact races I’ve participated in, I think it’s anywhere from 10-15 over the last 20 years. I remember walking them as kids with the Lil’s entire soccer team and their families. To more recently, doing it every year with my immediate family. However, this year I rolled out SOLO! It was weird, to say the least. So apparently this race is the largest in the US.…

    'eeeeef Friday

    It’s Friday. Its Fabulous. Five Fabulous “F” things going on in my life… Friend or Foe: Looking back, I was literally a treadmill addict. Since I was opposed to getting a Garmin watch and didn’t trust my iPod or it’s apps for tracking, I didn’t run outside. I have an odd obsession with tracking mileage and time, so the treadmill fits into my obsession perfectly. I can document my pace, time, and distance without any issues. We reunited after a loooog time… Feed the Hungry: A tradition, even if I’m doing it by myself this year, that our family always does! Every year I regret doing this, no sleeping in…
