Time for PrAna's Spring Line & Discount Code

prAna's Spring Line & Discount Code
As a Sweatpink Ambassador I was given the opportunity to try prAna's Prism Capris free of charge through Fit Approach. All opinions are my own.

Spring is almost here, well it seems to have come early in California. This was taken on Tuesday on my run and I couldn't believe how early the blossoms were blooming! It's my first winter in Northern CA and was not expecting this but I'm not complaining. :)
With spring coming it means temperatures starting to rise, those with harsh winters the snow will melt and this is the time hopefully for many when we start to spend more time outdoors. Spring is also a great time to for new clothes which brings me to PrAna's new spring line.

Davis Stampede 10K Race Recap 2/21/16

Davis Stampede 10K Race Recap
I ran the Davis Stampede 10K last weekend and it went as well as it could running with acute bronchitis (no worries, the doc said I wasn't contagious). I found out the Friday before the race, you can read about it here, and I am so glad that I switched from the half marathon to the 10K because had I not, I don't think I would have finished. I'm 100% sure I made the right decision and wasn't worried about missing the half marathon with more races lined up this year.

Training Week 9 Up to the Davis Stampede & Weekly Wrap 2/15-2/21

Last week was a very low output week for me. After my long run last Sunday, I thought I was getting better with the cold I had, but I actually got worse. I ended up trying to rest up so I could run the half marathon but, I never got better and found out why when I went to the doctor's office on Friday.

Acute Bronchitis and the Davis Stampede Half Marathon

Happy Friday! So for those that follow me on Twitter and Instagram and wondering why I haven't been posting as much as I usually do, well it turns out that I have acute bronchitis. I was trying to give myself a rest. It started last week and I thought I was getting better but it never seemed to go away. My coughing got worse and it was hard for me to get a good night's sleep so I went in today to the Doc to find out what was up.

Hidden Falls Regional Park Hike with the Fam 1/31/16

Hidden Falls Regional Park Hike
Another free Sunday for a hike. This time we wanted to do something a bit easier for the kiddos. We decided on Hidden Falls Regional Park in Auburn, CA. I did a google search on best hikes near Davis and I got a match for best hikes in Yolo County on Yelp. This hike was number 2 on the list with great reviews, so I though we'd check it out.
