Vegetarian Pizza + Publix Giveaway

I’m so excited that Spring is almost here, and that means that race season is about to start! After running 2 marathons in less than 3 weeks last Fall I’ve taken a break from running but now I’m ready to get back into it and it feels GOOD.

Honestly I haven’t planned my racing schedule for the year yet but the only certain thing in my future is that I’m participating in the Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon & 5K. Last year I set my half marathon PR on this beautiful race with a time of 1:40:29, which I know it’ll be really hard to beat, especially after taking off over 2 months from running.

MWM 17

These days have been a bit hectic.

We were in Santa Monica during the week and flew back home on the weekend… While in California I had 2 normal runs and a really bad one.

Long story short, because a condition I have that I’ll share with you later, I’m supposed to be taking flax seed oil. I bought some 1000mg capsules and took the first one on Tuesday… After that everything is history.

MWM 16

After 7 months without doing My Weekly Mileage I decided to come back and share with you my experiences while training for my 6th marathon.

Since I last posted on MWM a lot has happened… We went to Panama and Colombia to visit my family, we got a dog (my sweet little coco Deen),I became a lululemon ambassador, I’ve ran a few half marathons and got a new PR in that distance and I also completed my second Half Ironman.

Publix Savannah Women’s Half 2015

The inaugural Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon & 5K weekend quickly arrived and what a blast we had!

I’ve enjoyed every single part of the event from the moment I got involved with it. New Balance, one of the main sponsors, had an awesome presence throughout the whole process and treated us, ambassadors, like queens (yes, this means we got all sort of awesome gear!)

Publix Savannah Women’s Half & 5K

For 2015 I have many fitness goals: I want to complete my second Ironman 70.3, I want to run my 6th marathon and I want to race in a few half marathons, among them the inaugural Publix Savannah Women’s Half & 5K, which I’m extremely excited about.

When I first heard about this race I knew I was going to sign up right away. Why? Here’re some of the reasons:

TCS NYCS MARATHON 2014

This race recap is not going to be like previous ones, so I hope you enjoy it because this is going to be long and you’ll probably see a bunch of pictures of me 🙂

Since I moved to the U.S.A almost 5 years ago I wanted to run the NYC Marathon. I tried to sign up back in 2010 but it was too late, so I did Chicago and loved it! I loved it so much that as today I’ve finished 5 marathons in 4 states: Chicago, Savannah, Boston, Savannah and yes, NY!!!

Rails to Trails Ultra 2014

When I asked people who completed this race last year about it, everybody kept saying: “it was very foggy!” So, I woke up on race day and there it was… the FOG! The temperature was nice, but when I got to Fort Pulaski I felt I was freezing (and of course I was wearing short shorts and a lil tank top while everyone else was wearing long sleeves, but it was ok)
