The Many Benefits Of Running

The Many Benefits Of Running

Good ‘ole Bernal St. overpass. Yesterday felt much better than the past 3 days post NWM 2011.  I was seriously suffering from the post-marathon soreness but decided to do a little exercise to help ‘work it out’ of my body.  The day after the full marathon, I could only breath and painstakingly get up from(…)

RUNNING IN SAN FRANCISCO: My first NIKE WOMEN’S MARATHON!!!

RUNNING IN SAN FRANCISCO: My first NIKE WOMEN’S MARATHON!!!

Well, it’s two days post recovery from my first FULL marathon and I am still breathing!  ALL of my members are intact (hips, legs, ankles, metatarsals, heart, head…get it?)! That SF Nike Women’s (with a few trickling men) Marathon (NWM 2011), was most exciting at the beginning,  rough as hell in the middle, and almost…well,(…)

Running And Sucking Up The Miami Heat In Oleta River State Park

Two weeks and two days ago I woke up feeling refreshed, even after an evening of calisthenics, yoga, and the likes (a bit of cross-training activities lately), and a run all over Oleta River State Park in North Miami Beach.   Oh man, I love that place!  Miami, a vibrant hub of Latin America.  Dazzling(…)

Running With Roatan Blues in San Jose, CA

Yesterday I woke up feeling the blues from missing Roatan—dah water and beaches, dah terrain, dah fishes, meh family, meh friends (get it?).  Not to mention, I woke up early to a cold, overcast morning in San Jose.  I was feeling a bit jet-lagged from traveling through 5 airports (4 layovers!).  That Houston International airport(…)

NO ORDINARY LOVE

NO ORDINARY LOVE

Good day everyone!  Sad to say that I woke up at the crack ass of dawn and got ready for my trip back to the USA.  Chucky, my folk’s little helper/water chauffeur/adopted son, overslept and my cousin Jason came to my rescue to take me and his niece, my cousin, Sherna, to the landing so(…)
