She Runs LA 10K – Big Hair, Big Stride

Early Saturday morning, we drove to L.A. Our destination? The backlot of Paramount Pictures for the She Runs LA 10K race. Look at all the TV shows that are filmed on the lot….GLEE!!! The race was 80s themed and it was fun to see everyone wearing their neon and 80s gear. To keep all the […]

Rockin 80s Gear

I rocked 80s gear this weekend. My friends and I ran the She Runs LA 10K race (my 2nd consecutive year of running this fun race) and it was a blast. It was a new course, new location and new theme = extra excited!! The race festivities and concert were at Paramount Studios in L.A. […]

Knott’s Berry Farm – 10K Coaster Run

My friend Amy and I ran a fun 10K race recently. We ran the Knott’s Berry Farm (a local amusement park) 10K Coaster Run. This is my 2nd time running this race and since I had a great time last year running with friends, I wanted to repeat it again this year. Getting ready at […]

Redondo Beach Super Bowl 10K

The day started out really foggy. This was how the road looked on my way to meet my friends before the race. I stayed warm before the race wearing this cool sweater from Lululemon (clearance) that has a hole for my ponytail. The hoody stayed in place and kept my head warm. My friends Gaby and […]

Super Bowl 10K

Happy Super Bowl Sunday! I am up early today to run at the beach. Oh yes, I am running under the sun, bright and early today at a 10K (hmmm, that rhymes). Today’s forecast calls for mid 70s. This is my second year running at the Redondo Beach Super Bowl Sunday 10K. I love the […]

Racing Thoughts

A few weeks ago, I cleaned out a ton of boxes in the garage. I’m trying to sort everything out, clean house and make a dent in organizing all the stuff I’ve kept all these years. I kept my bib from my first half marathon race in Las Vegas. Ever since I found it, I […]
