Rock'n'Roll San Francisco Half Marathon Race Recap 4/8/18

Rock'n'Roll San Francisco Half Marathon Race Recap 4/8/18
This was my third year running Rock'n'Roll San Francisco Half marathon! You can check out my recaps of my past two races here and here. It was another fun one and it was neat to see the changes they made with the course! Turned out to be a perfect day to run on the Golden Gate Bridge!

Davis Lucky Run 10K Race Recap 3/24/18

Davis Lucky Run 10K Race Recap 3/24/18
A little over a week ago I ran the Davis Lucky Run 10K and it turned out to be an awesome run for me. I ran the race last year but did the 10 miler. This year they did not offer the 10 mile race but only the 5K or 10K. I opted for the 10K since I knew I had it in me to possibly PR having done Shamrock'n two weeks prior. I knew I had the endurance but wasn't sure about the speed. Another special thing about this race, it was also a big birthday for me, the big 4-0.

Shamrock'n Half Marathon Race Recap 3/11/18

Shamrock'n Half Marathon Race Recap 3/11/18
A couple of weeks ago I ran the Shamrock'n Half marathon in Sacramento. It was a fun one. I decided to not race it for time because ever since I got back from our Japan trip, I'd been feeling not as speedy and with the time change (moving clocks forward an hour thus losing an hour) I just felt I needed to take it easy. Turned out to be so much fun running it with one of my coworkers.

Shamrock'n Half Marathon Training Week 7: 2/12-2/18

Last week was a busy week with getting ready for me and Hubby's trip, Valentine's day, and our youngest son's birthday. I didn't get all my runs in last week as I had to move the long run to this week due traveling. I slacked on cross training again, but with how busy the week was, I'm ok with it. For those that don't follow me on Instagram or Twitter, I tagged along on Hubby's work trip to Japan. It's actually our first trip without the kiddos as my parents are taking care of the kids. :)

Here's a recap of what I did last week:

Shamrock'n Half Marathon Training Week 6: 2/5-2/11

It's been a good week of running! I got in all of my scheduled runs and even a little more because I felt like I needed to make up a few miles from Hubby being gone last week. I still need to work on some cross training, but I did get in a couple of good core workouts in. 

Here's a recap of what I did last week:

Black Chasm Caverns National Landmark 1/6/18

Black Chasm Caverns National Landmark 1/6/18
We wanted to get a fun adventure in after the new year before the kiddos basketball and soccer started up so we ventured to the Black Chasm Caverns, in Volcano, CA. We had heard from a friend that they were pretty neat so we decided to check them out.

Shamrock'n Half Marathon Training Week 5: 1/29-2/4

Week 5 is in the books! It was a busy week with Hubby gone for most of it but I managed. The week started out not so great, getting a cold and not feeling well, but I recovered quickly and got some runs in. Cross training was bad this week but I'm hoping the upcoming week will be better with Hubby back from his work trip.

Here's a recap of what I did last week:

Shamrock'n Half Marathon Training Week 4: 1/22-1/28

Another week of training is in the books! I got in all of my runs and did more cross training so I'm happy with how the week went. I did get my running race schedule for 2018 up on the blog. If you missed that post you can check it out here

Shamrock'n Half Marathon Training Week 3: 1/15-1/21

Week 3 of training for the Shamrock'n Half marathon has been good. I got in my runs, even a little more than scheduled but still lacking on the cross training side so I'm not as happy as I could be with the week. I did a core workout but really need to add more. Hoping I get more done this week!

2017 Year in Hiking Review

2017 Year in Hiking Review
I'm really behind in posting my year in hiking review for 2017, but it is always better late than never. 2017 was another great year of hiking! We got a late start in hiking due to lots of rain in Northern California during the winter but still managed a good number of hikes.

Shamrock'n Half Marathon Training Week 2: 1/8-1/14

Week 2 of training for Shamrock'n is done and it went well! Got in lots of running but I'm not happy with only one cross training workout. I'm hoping to add more core exercises into my routine this coming week. However, it was nice to get a run in a run with the boys twice this week and even a hike on Saturday!

Here's a recap of what I did last week:

Shamrock'n Half Marathon Training Week 1: 1/1-1/7

It's week one of Shamrock'n Half marathon training! I took a break from my weekly wrap posts after CIM. I continued running but since I wasn't training for anything, I just didn't blog about it. Also with the holidays and all, it was nice to take a little break. For this training cycle, I signed up for Fleet Feet Davis's half marathon training group. It's a perk for work and I figure it's a great way to meet more runners in the area. The training has coaches and they provide a training schedule, but since I am not starting from scratch and have already built a base (many who join these groups are beginners), I am modifying the schedule a bit. 

Here's a recap of what I did last week:

2017 Year in Running Review

Year in Running Review 2017
Happy new year!! It's been another amazing year! My second year living in California has been great. I've got my neighborhood routes pretty much figured out depending on the miles I do. I love that I run in a place with beautiful running paths and so many options. I didn't run as many races as last year but it was still a good year. If you want to see what I did last year, you can check out last year's review here. However, I think the best part of the year was working with a coach for the first time, improving my times in the half marathon/marathon, making new running friends and meeting people from the Interwebs!
