This morning marked the start of operation: get my running speed back! My friend Sokphal and I took our standing Tuesday a.m. run date to the track. We ran the 1.75ish miles to get there, and once there, we decided to do a 2 mile workout. For 8 laps, we jogged the curves and ran hard on the straights. I love this track workout – it’s one I Continue Reading …

Washington Monument Reopen + A Track Workout

IMG_1908

Exciting news, my friends: the Washington Monument is officially back open for business! It went under construction after being damaged in an earthquake back in 2011 and there have been fences around it and lots of scaffolding ever since, so you weren’t able to get close to it. So fun to be able to go right up to it again! Continue Reading …

Bienvenido a Miami

Good morning, my friends! How were your weekends? Mine was a whirlwind – as you know, I was in Miami! I was lucky enough to be invited down to Miami for an adventure with Nokia/Microsoft’s PR team to test out their new Nokia Lumia phone, which we were gifted with last week. (I know, we were extremely spoiled – rough life.) The phone is Continue Reading …
