Happy Valentine’s Day

Valentines Day Card { 10 comments }

You see, before having kids, Valentine's Day was about having a fancy dinner and showering gifts to that special someone. I would make reservations at a restaurant where it would be super crowded with all the lovebirds around. Now with two toddlers in the mix, Valentine's Day does not necessarily fall on February 14. It [...]

The 2014 Surf City Marathon weekend is always on Superbowl Sunday. It's a nice, relaxed race (<-oxymoron) by the beach that takes you up and down the coast. This was my first year running the Surf City Half Marathon. It is one of three races that you need to consecutively complete for the Beach Cities [...]

My First Marathon Experience

My First Marathon: 2013 Long Beach Marathon { 6 comments }

Last October, I accomplished something that I thought I would never even attempt to try to complete. Yeah, I've said in the past that I would like to run a marathon one day. But, I never said it with any seriousness or motivation to actually run it. Personally, I felt it was a physical feat [...]

My Favorite Running Shoe: Asics Nimbus 13! { 2 comments }

Recently, I have had some friends of mine ask me what they can do to get started in running. I tell them, "Just lace up your shoes, open the door, and put one foot in front of the other. Repeat 2-3 times per week." Now I know that this may sound a little sarcastic, but [...]

Running From Debt Track Pic { 4 comments }
