It's been six months since I traded in beaches and burritos for high-rises and ramen. And during that time, my relationship with running has a been a bit rocky. I really loved running in San Diego - the scenery is beautiful, the weather is always perfect, and there are races every weekend - it's a… Continue reading How I Fell in Love with Running Again
If you're like me, at one time or another you have tried running while juggling at least three things in hand...and not like one of those cool running juggler people either. More than likely, you probably look uncomfortable and not to mention inefficient. Which is why I was stoked to learn about the SPIbelt! So what… Continue reading Look Fly with a SPI(belt)
Last month I ran The Aloha Run in San Diego on a beautiful day near Mission Bay! This event has a 5k or 10k option and I ran the 5k with my mini-runner in the Bob Stroller. The pricing for this run ranged from $30-$55 depending on your registration date with an option to add a timing… Continue reading Aloha, beaches!

They also offer a Tadpole Trot where the little ones can earn their very own tshirt and mini medal! Price: The registration… Continue reading Joggin’ for Frogmen
Last weekend, I participated in the ACT (Autism Care & Treatment) Today! for Military Families 5k/10k in Fiesta Island (Mission Bay). I did the 5k last year and I really like the cause that this event supports, so this race was a must-do this year! This time was a little different, I completed the 10k (my… Continue reading ACT Today! for Military Families 5k/10k
Over the weekend I participated in the Super Run 5k/10k. Just a side note: there is also another Super Run that is being held next month, but that is a Super (hero) run...this one was called the Super Run (a Kathy Loper event) because it was held on Super Bowl weekend. The race started at 7:30 am… Continue reading Super (Bowl) Run 5k/10k
Well, I experienced my first Color Run (not to be confused with Color me Rad) last weekend and it definitely exceeded my expectations! I wasn't sure what to expect exactly as I don't typically participate in gimmick runs, but I thought I would give this one a shot as it's a pretty hyped up event. If I only… Continue reading The Color Run! (San Diego)
