    Just Like Frozen…

    2 sisters and a castle… …just like Frozen. Except we’re Asian, there was NO snow, and it’s really a winery. So basically, just like Frozen. Every Princess needs a Castello (de Amarosa), right? Napa is known for many things, but mostly for their delicious vino. Did you know a perfect castle is nestled right outside of the Napa city limits? Once you get off the 80 and start your journey on the 12 to Napa, you only have to go about 35 miles to get yourself to a real, live castle. For every girl that grew up dreaming of becoming a Princess, thanks Disney, you can make it happen as…

    Do You Ever…

    …need a weekend from your weekend? 2 days just never seems to suffice! Half marathon training is in full effect, 10 weeks and counting. I’m having a hard time wanting/getting my butt outside to do my speed workouts. When I was training with Fleet Feet, I really didn’t have a say. But now that I’m doing it on my own, I really dread doing speed in the cold, dark Sacramento evenings or mornings for that matter. Thus, me starting the Treadmill Chronicles again.
