For My Birthday

For My Birthday

In two weeks, I turn 30. In two weeks and one day, I run my first half marathon since January 16, 2011.  I had to look at my calendar just to remember when my last event was. I began running half marathons almost ten years ago, but they took on a whole new meaning in … Continue reading

Guest Post from My Momma

Yesterday, Team World Vision posted an edited version of my mom’s story from the 13.1 L.A. in January. Her full story is even better–she’s a very gifted writer. My mind has been a bit of a jumble this week because on Sunday, this baby will be as old as Kate and Lucy were.  Lovely, kind … Continue reading

4.75 for Africa?

4.75 for Africa?

This morning my training run for TWV was not my best.  There was jiggling.  There was chafing.  There was stopping by the freeway onramp to make sports bra adjustments with–I kid you not–the two bobbie pins in my hair. I was reminded that I have not trained since I did this thing 10 months ago. … Continue reading

I care. And so I run.

Two years ago I signed up for an inaugural half marathon in L.A.  I had run a few in the past, and had some friends who wanted to try, so I agreed to support them. 5 weeks later, the friends had bailed and I was racing solo. But it turned out not to be solo after all, … Continue reading
