Race Recap

Read part 1 of my Chicago Marathon recap here. As the gun went off, my heart rate soared with excitement. I was doing this. I was running this damn marathon even if I had to walk the last 6 miles. I knew I followed my plan religiously and had to trust “the training.”  I wasn’t […]

The race starts at 10pm on Saturday night so race day prep took some strategizing. For brunch, I had an omelet, […]

This past weekend, I spent in New York City with Oakley Women to run the New York Mini 10K. How is a 10K mini you’re probably thinking? When the race first started in 1972, the organizer said it was a mini marathon for the women to run because back then, women were not always allowed […]

On Sunday, I finally ran my first half marathon. For an entire year, I have been “training” for a 13.1 mile race since I finished the San Francisco Urbanathlon in November of 2011. Thanks to a busy schedule, last minute travel opportunities, and pure laziness, I trained but didn’t actually commit to any specific race. […]

Have you ever cried at a finish line? From my own Chicago Urbanathlon to spectating the Boston Marathon, I’m not one to be shy of tearing up. In Hawaii, the emotions were brought to an entirely new level. All week, as social ambassadors for Timex, we interviewed the different amateur and professional athletes competing. Many […]
