I’ve been listening to Amends by Buffering the Vampire Slayer on repeat lately. “So here we are in December…” What are you listening to?
My top recommendation to any runDisney runner? Or any runner? WEAR THAT BLING. Nothing beats congratulations after congratulations in the parks after the race. When else do you have the opportunity to wear your race medals? (Psst, did you know you can click the pictures to see them big?) The week after the Princess Half… Continue reading That Princess Bling Tho…
First a quick recap, my 5-miler on Saturday turned into a 4-miler and a 1-miler (four before the gym and one after on the treadmill) on Sunday. I planned poorly with running on Saturday evening after my beach gym session. At least I got an awesome sunset out of it. 🙂 I couldn’t get the sand… Continue reading Learning Speed [800s and Speedwork Workouts]
I went to Disneyland about a week and a half ago – the day before my Surfing Madonna 10k – and it was the perfect escape. I hadn’t been in ages and needed a little magic. I ended up getting a pass again for the first time in years knowing that I’ve got some races… Continue reading Disneyland Days

Getting around to editing my cousin’s wedding… Photos of other recent sessions are here.
“You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give.” -Winston Churchill I don’t remember the first time I heard this quote, but I know that it has stayed with me since that moment. My best friend started a team to walk for lupus. When I walk with him… Continue reading Walk for Lupus Photo Fundraiser
In January, I went to Sacramento to photograph a family friend’s newborn. While there, I took a walk in my brother’s neighborhood and enjoyed the still beauty of the barren trees. This Herman Hesse quote fit perfectly. “In their highest boughs the world rustles, their roots rest in infinity; but they do not lose themselves… Continue reading A Winter Day
