Weekend Adventures

P4020001

It’s officially spring in DC, at least as far as the weather is concerned, and I took full advantage the past few days – starting on Friday morning with an early morning run with my friend Sokphal! Track workouts are great and all, but there’s nothing like a DC monument sunrise. It was so nice to get out there and enjoy one! It was also weirdly Continue Reading …

IMG_7766

Hi friends! While in Canada last week, I rekindled my love affair with poached eggs. I’m normally a fried egg (runny yolk) sort of girl, mostly because they are easy to make and I was scared to try poached eggs at home.

Hi friends! As you know, I ran the Rock ‘n’ Roll DC Half Marathon over the weekend with my college friends Kathleen and Sarah! Despite the cold, rainy day, we had a blast. This was our second year in a row running this race together. :) Love these ladies! My training wasn’t exactly stellar for this race – constant snow and ice derailed a lot of Continue Reading …

Spring Running FTW + Gearing up for RnR DC

YOU GUYS! I had the best morning. I got in a beautiful sunrise run in DC and there was no snow or ice anywhere to be seen! WOOHOO!!!! Spring, is that you?! Please?! My buddy Sokphal and I hadn’t run together in WAYYYYY too long – our schedules haven’t been working out, and then it’s been too icy/snowy to run most mornings recently anyway. So Continue Reading …
