I like to run. I like to race even more. With that being said, I’m running a marathon in 2 weeks. Many of you already know that I a partnered up with Rock ‘n’ Roll to run all the events in California… well, San Diego is on June 2, and I’ll be doing the full marathon.

Yes, I just got back from the marathon in Toronto with Krysten of Darwinian Fail and THIS EPICNESS happened. The good thing is, I’m already trained and ready to do it again… FASTER.


The course elevation is tougher than super-flat Toronto, but my legs should be nice and rested and ready to go (except for the 8-hour drive down, but let’s not focus on that). Let’s focus on finishing where the first two numbers are 3’s.

I’ll be aiming for 3:3X.

That last number can be anything it wants to be. With my 3:48 finish a couple weeks ago, I’ll be looking to shave off more than 8 minutes. It’s doable. I feel like I had a 3:45 in my legs in Toronto and with that long 42.2KM race at pace run in the books, I should be stronger and faster a month later.

Look who I’ll be hanging with?


I’ve teamed up with Melissa of MelissaRunningIt.com and Kristin of StuftMama.com and we are organizing a meet up (or tweet up) at the Expo. I’m super stoked to be meeting up with these two amazing and strong runners (again). They came up to San Francisco last Fall for the Nike Women’s Marathon (photo above) and it’ll be great to see them again.
