    Thinking Out Loud – #Whorepants

    I thought I was running, not on a societal fashion show… Amanda at .RUNNING WITH SPOONS. I live in workout tights – no matter the brand – when I work out. There are the rare occassion in the hot Sacramento days that I will wear shorts. Even at those times, they are probably the biker short variety, yeah, I said it! So to think that people think I wear them to show off my ASSets is ridiculous. That’s just a side effect 😉 Haha, I kid. I kid. Let’s take a step back. Let me explain a little. I was on the Book of Face the other day and I…

    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 was good enough for me! That being said, unless I am out of town or sick, I will run this race every year. My Sister’s House is an organization that I wholeheartedly support. The only real difference I saw from this year versus last years race was the amount of participants. For some reason, this year the numbers looked much…

    Race Recap: Dirty Secret Trail Run

    Been there, done that! Dirty Secret Trail Run HA! Like that means anything. Just because you’ve run the same exact trail (race), doesn’t mean it still can’t kick your ass!! I respect the race, the distance, the difficulty…but I didn’t really respect my training for such a task.  My current training plan: no training plan. Oh yeah, pretty smart, right? Enough pity party. This race is put on by our local Fleet Feet (Sacramento). They only put on a few trail races a year, so they fill up fairly quickly. This race offers two distances – the short course is 5.8 miles and the long course is 10.3 miles. My…

    Race Recap: Credit Union Sactown 10 Mile Run

    Sometimes you just run…  Sactown 10 And sometimes you are lured by a deal, say two races for the price of $60. The Sacramento Running Association did just that, they offered the Super Sunday Run 10k and the Sactown 10 miler for a steal. I hadn’t run either before, mixed with my euphoria of finishing my first marathon, I signed up for both races. Little did I know that I’d be fairly burnt out of running and an onset of laziness due to gloomy weather, would set in. Needless to say, I was in a dilemma when I realized it was time for a 10 mile race, which in my opinion,…

    Team Mermaid

    Thick girls need lovin’ too!   So, Mr. Wilson was caught with his foot in his mouth again. If you don’t understand what I’m talking about, please read this article Lululemon co-founder on too-sheer yoga pants: Not for ‘some women’s bodies’. He didn’t come right out and say “Big girls can’t wear Lulu”…but he might as well have. Funny thing is, thick girls still rock his products and will continue to do so.   Me being one of them, I’ve been coveting a pair for awhile. I have other stuff from there, but until last week, I couldn’t pull the trigger on almost three digit workout bottoms. However, I decided to treat…

    'eeeeef Friday

    It’s Friday. Its Fabulous. Five Fabulous “F” things going on in my life… Fleet Feet Fun Run: Every Tuesday our local FF offers a fun run. Most of the time they are sponsored, so you can try out shoes, get some freebies, win something, or have a drink or bites. This week happened to be sponsored by Nike. I’m slowly jumping on the Nike bandwagon, but all of my friends have been riding this train for years. So I reached out to a few and we got a small group together to do this run. From the store to McKinley Park and back is perfectly 3 miles. This is the…
