    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…

    Race Recap: Women’s Fitness Festival, 10k

    I didn’t realize it’s been F O U R years since I’ve run this race. I literally thought I ran it two years ago. But, NO! I think I remember why. I actually love the reason this race exists.

    14 for 14

It was fun while it lasted and. B&B are doing amazing things with the movement and it’s a joy to watch it grow, even if I’m not a part of it. The time spent dedicated to the movement was great, more importantly, a learning experience – both physical and emotional! One of the first NP_Pledge sessions in January 2014. 2 // The First Date.  Like a creep, J took this pic…

    Race Recap: Women's Fitness Festival 2014 Half Marathon

    I’m a sucker for anything “inaugural”…   …So sue me, I want to be a part of something for the first time. Doesn’t it sound exciting to you? Well it did to me a few months back when I finally pulled the trigger and signed up! This race has always been a 5k up until this year. This year they said screw the 10k distance, we’re going straight for a half marathon! This race, which Nike was at once the lead sponsor, has been around the Sacramento since 2009. I thought it was earlier than that, but that’s as far as the race results go on their website: W omens…
