“We’ll just see how it goes.” My roommate from college and I jumped through hoops in order to sign up for the Runapalooza Half Marathon back in our college town.

I am so happy to say that I completed my first half marathon in the beautiful Napa Valley! Months of training finally paid off while running through gorgeous mountains in California.

It’s starting to take a toll on my half marathon training. Running on the treadmill for too long hurts my knees after a while, … More Snowy Day Run

The only one I really stuck with was basketball, and in middle school I did all the AAU and travel teams I could. I loved basketball up until high school … More Preparing for the Race
