Rock ‘n’ Roll DC Half Marathon 2016 Race Recap

On Saturday, I ran the Rock ‘n’ Roll DC Half Marathon for the 5th time! This is one of my favorite races and this year was no exception – I had a blast out there. :) For the past couple years, I’ve run this race “just for fun” at a casual pace with friends. I love racing but sometimes it’s fun to do races without worrying about pace and with Continue Reading …

Why I Show Up Early for Yoga

A few months ago, I started doing one small thing differently: showing up a little early for yoga class. It had started to occur to me that while yoga is my calming happy place (see also: Why I Love Yoga), I was often cutting it really close on timing, showing up to class with seconds to spare, harried and stressed. I was joking with it about a Continue Reading …

Weekend Adventures

Hey friends! Matt and I stuck around town this weekend and it was nice to have a weekend at home! On Friday night, we stayed in and made a Blue Apron and watched some of the new season of House of Cards (so good/intense – anyone else a fan?). On Saturday morning, I had a nice relaxing morning reading the paper and enjoying some avocado Continue Reading …

Friday Fun

Happy Friday, my friends! I hope your week is ending on a high note. Here’s one of my high notes from this week: My friends Heather, Sokphal, and I met up for a morning run date yesterday and of course had to stop to snag a sunrise shot! It was cold but refreshing out – and we practically had the Lincoln Memorial to ourselves. Sorry for the face Continue Reading …
