Go With Your Gut

In case you're not familiar with probiotics, they are basically "good bacteria" that benefit your digestive system or all that junk in your gut.  You can find it in the form of pills, powders or certain foods, like yogurt.  I was excited to try Dr. Mercola's Complete Probiotic Powder Packets since I'm not really good with taking… Continue reading Go With Your Gut

Imperial Beach 5k

Last month I participated in the inaugural Imperial Beach 5k Beach Run.  I was little hesitant to register since it's the organization's first race and I prefer all of the kinks to be worked out before I participate in a race.  But they offered a promo code and a military discount so I only paid about… Continue reading Imperial Beach 5k

Chula Vista Community Fun Run

Earlier this month I participated in the 8th annual Chula Vista Community 5k.  The first thing that drew me to this run was that it's held at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista.  How cool is that?!  You get to run around a venue where actual Olympic athletes have spent several hours training for… Continue reading Chula Vista Community Fun Run

Walmart Beauty Box (Spring 2016)

I received my Walmart Beauty Box last month and was pleasantly surprised with the contents.  Walmart must have heard my complaints about the flimsy one time use samples because I only received one of those this time around!  As a reminder, this box ships every season and costs $5 to cover shipping.  They also ask for your age to customize… Continue reading Walmart Beauty Box (Spring 2016)

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

I recently participated in the Margarita 5K in Mission Beach and it was definitely a blast!  I used a coupon code for this race so I paid around $28 for this event.  Packet pick-up was the day before at Movin Shoes in Pacific Beach.  It's a tiny store, so I was in and out pretty fast.  Here… Continue reading Margarita 5k
