It’s a Rock ‘n’ Roll Story

This past Sunday was the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Half Marathon and Marathon, but today’s story starts a little earlier than that… then it takes a couple turns. 🙂 In 2008, not even a month after I signed up with Team In Training, I volunteered to help them with the “half marathon finish line”… Continue reading It’s a Rock ‘n’ Roll Story

Confessions of a Non-Runner

When I tell people I’m training for a half marathon, I feel like an imposter. I’m a little kid playing dress up, only instead of the doctor’s jacket or the fairy wings, I’m wearing running shoes.
