yoga! running! lawyering…

I started this blog on a whim, during a slow day at work which happened to also be the first day of my training schedule for the 2013 LA Marathon.

I’m a BFA, a JD, an ESQ, but most relevant to our purposes here: a yogi(ni) who runs long distances at moderate paces.

In 2012, I challenged myself to resurrect my daily yoga practice by enrolling in a 200 hr teacher training program, followed by an advanced 300 hr teacher training program. If things continue as they are, I’ll be a 500 RYT sometime in 2013.

For 2013, I have challenged myself to resurrect my running habit by training for and completing a marathon in each of the five major west coast cities (as I see them): LA, San Diego, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle. Emphasis on actually training.

This “blog” purports to be about my exploits along the way.

OH, and one of my fabulous friends helped me come up with the name, which I love because it has a hint of farce and I love a good farce!

UPDATE!!! 7/9/13

I don’t make a habit of posting pictures, but just for fun here is a photo of me running:

    Great goal looking forward to seeing ow you get on. How close are the marathon dates to each other?

      LA, then 10 weeks until
      SD, then 2 weeks (?!?!) until
      SF, then 15 weeks until
      Portland, then 8 weeks until Seattle.

      I know, the SD/SF turnaround is, I think, what pushes this into the crazy zone.
      But there will be no PR attempts in SF, only fun run finish before the cutoff (6:30) level efforts, so in my mind, that makes it reasonable.

    Cool just keep in mind how cool it will be when you sit back after Seattle with all 5 medals ….. sweet. SD – SF should be fine just take it easy between the 2. I wouldn’t just stop and chill but keep moving with low impact stuff, swimming would be great or spinning just to keep the legs from stiffening up and a great thing is after each race eat a big bowl of FRESH pineapple helps to prevent DOMS (Delayed onset muscle soreness ). Good luck
