When I started this blog I promised myself to keep consistent. I guess life happens. Here is my attempt at a recap. I promise that I will not go this long without witty comments and interesting posts again…I hope.
This was a year full of family, weddings, new friends and new travel experiences. In 2014 I personally learned how to negotiate my wage, and keep growing in my career. The photo below is from a trip to Costa Rica, which was pure beauty!
In 2015 I took charge of my health! I ran my first half marathon and learned that anything is possible with hard work and perseverance. We say this when it comes to work, but it’s also true in our personal lives.
This year was truly magical!
1. I was accepted to and started my doctorate program at THE University of Southern California (USC) fight on!
2. I married my best friend and amazing life partner. Together we are growing an empire!
3. My running journey has continued and I completed my very first full marathon. It was hard, it was painful, and I didn’t not reach my time goal. However, that journey taught me that you never give up, you keep going even if you have to crawl. I am officially a marathoner and look forward to completing many more!
As a lot of you who have followed me on my running journey know one of my goals was to win the lotto and run the Nike Women’s Half Marathon in San Francisco this October 2015. As it turns I did not win the lottery.
Instead of waiting until next year I am taking the bull by it’s horns. I WILL be running the SFO Half Marathon as part of the Team in Training for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Pretty sure this was the path meant for me. I am grateful to be able to support an amazing cause, especially since I personally know people who this has effected.

I am excited to use my new found love of running to make a difference. Please support me and my running journey and the BIGGER journey of supporting a life changing cause.
