Ambitions...

I appologize for being so MIA lately! Things have been very busy which is also a very good thing! Not sure if I have ever shared with my readers...but my Husband works about two hours north every week... So, he leaves monday...and hopefully he comes back Friday morning but it doesn't always seem to work out that way. Hence, I am by myself down in the South Bay most of the time. Which is fine but it would be nice to have more friends! It can be very tough at times...not knowing many people and trying to stay busy!

Lately, I have been reading a couple blogs that have anything to do with running, training and working out. For the past two weeks, my neighbor and I have been running together (neither one of us have any running experience) and it has been going great! We are up over a mile now and happy to report we can chit chat at the same time! :)

Here are a couple of my favorite blogs!

Chic Runner Blog- up to date info on running clothes, races, tips... plus she is from So Cal as well!
Skinny Runner- I love hearing about her races and how she prepares..she is really funny! Oh and she is also from Cali!



There is a lot of comfy running clothes out there and I love my sneakers! I mean..ya gotta look cute right? The other positive living in So Cal is the amazing weather we have for running or any outdoor sport!

So, I'm trying to fill in my empty time (which is a lot) with something that will make me feel accomplished and healthy. My goal of running a 5k this November would be amazing! There are tons of races in LA...

Does any of my followers run? Just started or already doing the 1/2 marathons? Any tips you can give a newby?

A friend of mine told me about your website. An adorable blog I must say! I'm a runner - training for the Disney Marathon in January! I would get the nike chip and use it to track your runs. I have been tracking mine for 2 years now and it's a great way of looking back and seeing how much I run and how far I've come. They have a great new website too. Good Luck!

thanks for the shoutout, yo. are you in LA? theres always a bajillion races all over socal, but i'd sign up for a 5k or even a 10k and train with a friend like you're doing. that way you have a goal to work towards and it just makes things fun. theres a 10k in december in la at the universal studios backlot, um my idea of heaven... running with the chance of celeb? heck ya!
