  • I’m now 3 weeks from the California International Marathon (as of Nov. 12).  In addition, I also have a 10K in 1.5weeks (on Thanksgiving)
  • Check out my half marathon race recap from Saturday! I PR’ed And I also explained what things I think helped me improve my race time by 8minutes over this past year.

  • I try to include some sort of cross training 5-6days a week – either lifting weights or an insanity (plyo/core/HIIT) Workout
