Sunrise Track Workout + What Spring Races Should I Do?

Gooooood morning! It’s another really cold one here in DC – in the teens with windchill. But, I’m proud because I dragged myself out of my warm bed and over to the track this morning!

Yesterday, I went on a run for the first time in nearly a week and a half (the last one was my annual DC Christmas tree light run). I can’t even remember the last time I went so long without running, but I wasn’t craving a run (and over the weekend when I was, it was too icy), so I didn’t force myself to get one in until I really wanted to. I’ve Continue Reading …

2nd Annual DC Christmas Tree Light Run

On Sunday night, my friend Sokphal and I went on our 2nd annual DC Christmas Tree Light Run! Such an awesome tradition – I highly suggest doing something like this where you live! Seeing all the beautiful trees and lights on foot is awesome. This is one of my favorite runs of the year – it’s sooo hard for me to motivate to run at night but Continue Reading …
