Harvest Is Here and It Smells Wonderful…

Fall is in the air and this means so many things to us.  Living here in the Wine Country it definitely means that “harvest” is coming and the grapes and vines are amazing and beautiful.  The colors, the smells, the celebrations that happen all over the Napa/Sonoma county in the next month are something to be seen and experienced.  The ever-popular Valley of the Moon Vintage Festival is just one of many events to check out. Today’s walk was just blocks from my home.  The Sebastiani vineyards.  I am so lucky and blessed to have some most beautiful areas for running or walking.  Whether the sun is shining or there is a drizzle in the air, I love living the Sonoma life. *Have you visited Sonoma? Have you been to the Napa Valley? Do you have a favorite varietal/wine?

I am joining the link loving with two blogs The Lady Okie and Coffee & Macarons today to share my reasons why I think “Running Is Awesome”.   I don’t think I could really sit and come up with 100 reasons, however I can come up with MY reasons… It’s a great excuse for me to find new music for my play list New running shoes every few months {and new brands to try} Feeling great Connecting with other “runners” no matter what level {runners are like a family of total support and encouragement for one another} Increased energy during the day Watching my clothes fit looser Getting to purchase new running clothes Getting to be outdoors Taking in the world around us {noticing certain gardens, loving the views of the wine country, even making friends with the Llama who is behind the fence everyday on one of my running…  Read More…

My Mizuno….I Am In Love

I am not a gal who owns a lot of shoes, in fact I live in running shoes, Havaianas {flip flops}, Toms and an have an occasional pair of heels.  It was time for me to search and seek out a new pair of running shoes. As much as I love to do this, it is so frustrating with all the choices out there.  Some shoes are too heavy, some are just to wild {for me} but I love when I come across just the right one.  I almost feel like Cinderella, only my “glass slipper” is my running shoe. I knew it was time for me to step out of the “normal” and “routine” and give a new brand a try.  This is where Mizuno comes in.  Thanks to the company, I was able to try out the Wave Rider 16 .  They have a great and very easy…  Read More…

I am so excited to share this that I am having a hard time finding a way to start.  It’s time for the 18th LAKE TAHOE MARATHON + {the plus meaning that this three day event has more than just the marathon} you have a menu of events to choose from and the scenery alone is worth it.  No matter which you do, you will be in Lake Tahoe  so trees, beaches, lakes, mountains, the fresh air {is that enough}?  September 27th-29th, 2013 As a child growing up in South Lake Tahoe, I could not be more thrilled, because this is the year that I am getting involved and both Faith and I are running the 5k which finishes at Pope Beach. The very same beach that I played on for years and have taken our kids to.  Here is an example of what you can find on the event…  Read More…

It’s Motivation May, Treadmills, Journey and Burt’s Bees

Good morning and happy May 1st.  I have something super fun and motivating to share with you and I sure hope you will join in. THIRTY MILES IN MAY         We are getting closer to summer season, this means less clothing, more skin, swimsuits, and {hopefully} eating healthy, clean and fresh foods. I was so excited when I happen to stumble upon Sexy Heffer  {Sherry} and The Pink Growl {Nikki, who started this}.  Who doesn’t need extra motivation?  Join us in motivating one another and maybe even pushing ourselves past 30 miles {raise the bar a bit}. Just grab this cute button and join in. As I talked about in my video….. What are some ways you keep yourself motivated while running? {Either on the treadmill, track, road, whatever}. My dance moves keep me going when I hear a good song.  For instance I LOVE my Journey {yep I’m an 80’s gal} so…  Read More…
