Out for the Count

I even got the winning number. Can you top A1111? In corral 1. But I wasn’t be there. My disappointment goes beyond words. There’s a part of me that was still thinking somehow I’ll be there this morning to toe the line at the 2017 LA Marathon, a race I’ve run before, a race which was my first […]

When Local is Not That Local

Here in LA, we’re spoiled. 100% grass fed meat, wild fish and humanely sourced poultry are all not too tough to find and if we plan our schedules accordingly, we can get to a plethora of farmer’s markets where we can find the best of the best from avocados to zucchini and from antelope to […]

Get Creative: Choose Your Vision & Set a Goal!

“Get Uncomfortable.” One of the things I learned early on in the part of my sport career is that in order to improve, we have to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. I learned this from my husband. When we started dating, he’d made the shift from marathoning and Ironman to ultra running because he wanted […]
