The San Francisco Marathon

Now that I'm almost fully recovered from last Sunday I thinks it's about time I start talking about my experience running my FIRST MARATHON, the San Francisco Marathon. Running my first marathon was definitely an overwhelming experience. It was all things incredible and equally painful. It was one of the best thing that ever happened to [...]

Running Log Week 7

Week 7 was an OK week. I did my weekday runs on the treadmill (ewww) and had a great race on Sunday! I was supposed to run 16 miles on Saturday, but because I was running Bay to Breakers I decided to save that long run for next week. On Sunday I eneded up running [...]

I headed over to Fleet Feet, got my feet evaluated, and tested out some new shoes! After trying on countless of [...]

Running Log Week 3

Overall I had a pretty good running week. Big improvements, specifically during my long run on Saturday. I ended the week with a really slow and easy run on Sunday (I was super sore Saturday run), but there's no way I'm going to let put a damper on my upcoming week! Cheer's to completing 3 weeks of training! [...]

Running Log Week 2

Big challenge this week, but also great progress! The big challenge was that I got shin splints 🙁 . This was not fun and soooo painful. This is the reason I did not run Thursday or Friday, instead I just stretched and iced my legs in the morning and before bed. Still trying to figure out [...]

Running Log Week 1

This week my biggest challenge was the rain. I haven't ever liked running in the rain, but this week I decided to go for it. I now hate running on the treadmill and would 100% prefer to run outside, even in the pouring rain. Total Weekly Mileage: 17 Tuesday: Mileage: 4 miles Time: 46:41 Course: Baylands Feelings: Rough Run, [...]
