I wish they all could be California…. RUNS!

Wow, what a trip so far and let me tell you, I am on VACATION!  Okay, so maybe it is a working vacation but I am enjoying San Diego (Mission Bay) and the enthusiasm of other runners and bikers (and surfers!)  What a beautiful place to work out and it seems like everybody is doing […]

The calm before the storm… or is it the run before the vacation?

Everybody should Try A Tri!
