The Biofreeze San Francisco Marathon prize trip to Taiwan

The Adventure of a Lifetime

Entering a sweepstake is a leap of faith – you’re lured by an amazing prize, but as soon as you submit your entry, doubt creeps in. You start to wonder, “Where did my entry go? Do they really pick a winner? I really want to win… I wonder if I can I submit multiple entries?” Such was the case with Michael Espejo from San ... More

Running Safe

Running is something I love to do. I love running with friends but I also love those solo runs where I can escape into my thoughts, get lost in music, or catch up on a podcast or two. However, sometimes all these distractions while running can be a bad thing and not just because it draws your attention from running. No, sometimes it’s bad ... More

My Heart is in San Francisco

In less than five months, I will be running across the glorious Golden Gate Bridge not once, but twice - with thousands of my closest friends. Even though I’ve already booked my hotel room, made a list of San Francisco must-see’s and have connected online with fellow ambassadors, it still feels like a dream. Perhaps it has something to do ... More

A Holiday From Racing

For me, January is always a strange month. It’s usually the one month in the year that I have no races planned.

January means a month of training and recovery. Leading up to ... More

Are you a Social Runner?

Until a little over a year ago, running was a rather solitary sport for me. Aside from long runs with my husband, I ran alone. It was my time to feel free, sort out thoughts, and generally de-stress. Although these things are still an important part of running for me, I’ve found renewed excitement in running by joining friends and groups on ... More

Running On a Plant Based Diet

A little more than 2 years ago, I switched over to a plant based (vegan) diet. When people first hear this, one of the biggest questions I get is, “Where do you get your protein?” My typical response is that I get protein from soy products like tofu, beans, legumes, nuts, and whole grains. Upon further investigation, I have learned that ... More

The Dreaded D Word

You hear about it all the time but I never thought it would happen to me. As a runner, I know I am certainly not invincible. Injuries will happen, not all runs are going to be good. Then it happened, out of nowhere, and without any warning, the dreaded D word occurs! Yes, the good ol’ DNF - Did Not Finish. It took me by surprise really. ... More
