Disneyland Half Marathon

Disneyland! Sunday morning I crawled out of bed at 4am to run the Disneyland Half with my cousin Jimmy and friend Linh. I dressed up as Tink and Linh was Snow White. Jimmy was amused but did not feel left out. Haha. Except for having to wake up crazy early the race was probably the most fun you could have …

Du the Bear Duathlon

Sunday was my first try at a real USAT (USA Triathlon) race. It was a duathlon held at bear creek park (2 mile run – 10 mile bike – 2 mile run). Not a charity ride where I can go slow or fast at my own leisure. I needed to try to go fast all the time, and I needed …

New Feet!

I caved. I’ve been wanting these shoes for a long time. They were sold out almost everywhere (of the color I wanted anyway) since June or July. Then the manager at Fleet Feet Rice Village called me and said we got a shipment. And all of a sudden I was walking out of the store in them. haha. Why? I …

Internet Incentives

A few weeks ago my friend Albert invited me to join the Daily Mile. This website allows you to track your workouts and compete or compare yourself to your friends or others on the site. I decided to give it a try and see if it helped my motivation to work out. I’ve also seen friends join S2H. Here you …

Contemplating the Tri

So I’ve been posed with this question a few times, “Why don’t you do a triathlon?” And the answer was typically, “I hate swimming. And swimming hates me.” The last episode was when I went snorkeling off the coast of Zanzibar. (Yes Zanzibar is a real place.) I couldn’t even keep myself a float for long and my friends had …

13.1 + 27 = TIRED

This morning I got up at 430am to go run Angie’s Half Crazy. grumble. WHY did I sign up for a race that starts at 7am that is an hrs drive away? Never again. Well, probably again sometime, but next time I will convince other people to go with me. It would have been more fun that way. Anyway, I …

Workout Log

After work went to Memorial park and got in 6 miles at a slow pace. Hopefully the half won’t be too painful. my new kicks are amazing! My feet were totally fine after the run and I had minimal join pain. YES. completely worth it. Thanks Nike.

New Kicks

Thanks Luke’s Locker. Got a lot of good feedback from Justin, the sales guy. He also worked at Bike Barn for a number of years. Apparently I have a good gait and don’t keep my foot on the ground too long. I roll the outside of my foot just a little much. But otherwise I can get any neutral shoe. …

Pick Up the Pace

Trying to get ready for my half marathon on the 11th, so today after work I went to Memorial Park to attempt 9 miles. Kind of ambitious, since I’ve only been working out on the weekends and only 3 miles at a time. So I left myself room for walking and essentially took my time. 1hr and 50mins total. Pretty …

Sunday Runs with Janice – Memorial Park

JPai and I have done a pretty good job keeping up with our weekly Sunday morning runs. I think it deserves it’s own post now along side my Conocophillips posts. Also what’s cool is we try a new trail every Sunday. This week was Memorial Park. We had planned to go to the back trails where mountain bikers go, but …
