Spring Dresses: The Maxi

150417_MaxiDresses

Since the weather had started warming up, I’ve been dying to wear some dresses to work. But as it is always, especially working inside and in an office, it usually cold for some and comfortable for other. Me, it usually colder then I would like. Thank goodness maxi dresses are not only comfortable, but more importantly, keeps my legs warm!

p.s. I really want the kimono maxi, but a can never keep anything white clean.

Running Training Season

150416_RunTrainSeason_01

When I started running a couple of years ago, I never thought I would become as addicted to running and working out as I do now. It also never crossed my mind that I would be able to run AND finish a race. My first race was for asthma and air quality research thing… I can’t remember since it was so long ago. Since then, I’ve done at least 10 5k, 2 10k and 3 half-marathons.

And I’m gearing up for my next half-marathon this year. I was planning on running the See Jane Run Half again but after much convincing (mainly from H and my sister) I’ve decided to sign up for the Rock’N’Roll Half in Seattle.

It took me a really long time and research to prepare for longer runs after my first 5k. I’ve since then have figure out a good training routine. Its always good to run at a comfortable pace and push yourself only when you are comfortable of kicking it up a bit. I like doing HIIT runs and weight lifting during the week before my longer runs on Saturday mornings.

My favorite races are the one where there are tons of fellow runners and to be honest, nice bling. Like my medals. Just looking at them make me happy and motivated to get my next one. If you guys are looking to participate in a run, but not ready to do it with mass about of people, try some virtual runs. Some like The Hogwarts Running Club doesn’t even need you to post that you’ve run but encourage you to do so. Plus all their proceeds goes to charity or organization. I signed up for the Weasley’s Wizarding Wheezer 5k and to support Dogs on Deployment, which I finished weeks ago at the gym.

So far I’ve ran the Dawg Dash 5k, Runnin’ O’ the Green 5k, Electric Run, Color Run, Whidbey Marathon 5k, Refuse to Abuse 5k (awesome run around & inside the Mariner’s stadium), Race the Reserve (in my hometown to support my high school current seniors), See Jane Run Half Mud & choclate Trail Half, Leavenworth Oktoberfest Half, Dementor’s Kiss 5K, and a couple others. I know I did a couple different “Color” runs and some smaller local ones.

I haven’t really motivated myself to try a full marathon yet. I mean, I always say I’m never going to sign up for another half after I finished one, and yet, I again sign up for my next one.

It’s finally summer weather in the PNW which means sandals time! Yay! I was really getting tired of wearing my boots due to the cold, wet weather we had! And I no longer have to wear sweaters to work. Awesome!

Ski to Sea

As I posted yesterday, I was up in Bellingham mainly for Ski-to-Sea Relay Event. They’ve been having this event since 1977, but back then the relay was opposite of what it is today. Instead of coming down the mountain, apparently they went up it. Crazy fools!

Hope everyone had a great long weekend. I spent it up in Mt. Vernon at my girl, Holly’s place. Nice long weekend away from the parental-unit is always nice. It was also the same weekend for Ski-to-Sea in Bellingham. Holly was suppose to do the downhill running leg, but due to developing runner’s knees from our last run, she stepped out.
