    Musings: We All Scream for (the SF Museum of ) ICE CREAM

    I paid $45 for 250 photos. Seriously, if you want colorful social media images OR you are a child, this place is probably for you. Anything else, you might want to go to a different “museum.” mu·se·um (noun) – a building in which objects of historical, scientific, artistic, or cultural interest are stored and exhibited. google.com I heard a statistic that the Museum of Ice Cream was the most socially shared museum ever. Don’t quote me on that, but it struck me as odd. Then as I was discussing this stat with a good friend I remembered, from Italy, that all the larger, foreign historic museums don’t allow you to…

    Race Recap: Sacramento Giant Race, 5k

    Same race, same sissy’s, different year. I’ve been putting off writing this recap because honestly, it’s going to be basically the same as the ones I’ve written before 2018, 2017, and 2016. Well, besides the inaugural race (2016), they are pretty much the same. This year they updated the course slightly, which I’ll go over later. Other than that, it was business as usual for our hometown race under the Giants race series. Oh, one thing to note is that after three years they finally updated the race title to fit within the Giant race series a little more cohesively. It is no longer called the Riverfront race. I guess…

    Musings: Pitchers & Catchers

    My favorite two words in February! This day is most important because it truly signifies the START of the baseball season. Pitchers and catchers are officially required to report today, but pretty much everyone comes now too. And in case you aren’t too much in to baseball, each team designates their own Pitchers & Catchers reporting day, BUT I’m only worried about when my boys are in Arizona! My men in Orange && Black are B A C K! As the rumors of Harper keep filling my feed, I am not holding my breath. So many changes happening it seems like its all a little chaotic. Oracle Park will ALWAYS be…

    Race Recap: San Jose 5mi 2018, Virtual Runner

    Virtual recaps are the best… Slight sarcasm intended. They are quick because there isn’t much to talk about. I paid to run at my leisure. For some reason, I find myself needing to recap my virtual runs. Maybe because its something new or maybe because I spent money to run on my own time, in my own city, with no race fun. But here I am, telling you about the time I acted like a true virtual runner, unlike when I virtually ran the Scottsdale 5k. I love the voice the Giant Race team has cultivated. They are sassy and fun, not stuffy and uptight like you’d expect a professional sports league to…

    Musings: Today, It’s Baseball Time…

    SF Giants BASEBALL to be exact. Not ideally where I’d like to start the season, but just happy it’s STARTING! Just in case you don’t follow the G-men and/or baseball, the SF Giants will be starting the 2018 MLB season against the Dodgers in LA. I  feel gross even writing their name :/ But, it’s not anything we (Giants fans) have control over. The home opener is on April 3, so we have that to look forward to, too! I was lucky enough to get a little taste of the G-men, early…even though no AZ this year 🙁 The fam and I went to the annual Sacramento Rivercats vs the…

    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: Giant Race Riverfront 5k

    Only running for my beloved G-Men! I haven’t run, really run, in probably six months or so. I don’t count the soccer field, because that is a different type of running. It’s not continuous, even though it kicks my ass. My rule this year was to only run any or all of the Giant Race series. I may have changed this a bit, but there won’t be too many races in my 2017 future. I still can’t get over how the SF Giants AAA team is right in my backyard. As if that wasn’t awesome enough, they added a race to support my favorite team. No brainer, obviously. Last year…

    Musings: Pitchers && Catchers A N D FanFest

    Blogger FAIL, this was supposed to be posted yesterday // 2.13.17… Everyone is excited about GALentines, but it’s all about PITCHERS & CATCHERS reporting TODAY! via sfgiants.com I’m all about celebrating women, which is today….BUT…I can’t hide my excitement for Baseball season! Fan Fest for my beloved SF Giants was this weekend, which only heightened my excitement level. As we came down from the high of seeing our favorite humans and being in our home away from home, we didn’t have to let our low get too low. Because only two short days later is today, when our pitchers and catchers report to Arizona for Spring Training. Now, we all…

    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…

    Musings: Not Starting

    My blogger dream could have been a reality… …but I wasn’t selected! I was crushed. That might be a slight exaggeration, but it still stings. The SF Giants started a new blogger ‘Starting Nine’ for their Giant Race series. When I saw their FB post asking for people to apply, I was seriously the happiest girl ever that day! And stopped everything that moment and applied. I probably should have spent a little more time on the application, looking back. There’s that hindsight again, always there to remind me! Anywho, the application was very simple, with a few questions to answer and you also had to list your Social Media…
