5 Things I'm Looking Forward to this Summer

Memorial Day has come and gone which means it's officially summer (regardless of what the solstice says) and time to break out the white pants!

Summer is by far my favorite season. I wish it was always summer. Heat? Yes. Humidity? I'll take it. I'd much rather an 87 and humid day than a 24 and humid. Those are the worst.

I never really have too much planned for the summer because I like to throw caution to the wind and welcome adventure. Nonetheless, I do have a few things planned for this summer, so here's a look at what I'm looking forward to!

1. Chicago Marathon Training - The race may not be until fall but training is half the fun, right? Chicago will be my first 26.2 in 3 years (thanks to my IT band woes) and I'm so pumped to really tackle some high mileage this summer and push myself in the way that marathon training does.

Training in DC is the best.
2. Baseball - It is May 29th and I still haven't been to a baseball game this season...I think this is the longest I've ever gone without going to a game. It's really upsetting but the Nationals are right around the corner, the Mets are always calling my name and I've got a goal to see 8 more ballparks in the next two baseball stadiums so there will be baseball!

3. Going to the Beach -With the exception of the two beach days we took while on our honeymoon, I haven't been to the beach since moving to DC almost 3 years ago. Call me naive but I didn't realize when I moved here that DC was so in land! It makes me love this city just a little bit less that the nearest beach is 2.5 hours away without traffic, but I'm hoping for some Summer Fridays and trips back home to get in some beach time! Maybe The Pilot and I will oops our way somewhere a little closer to the beach!

4. Weddings - We're going to two weddings this summer...they're both next month but I'm still excited to get my dance on and celebrate some awesome people.

5. Lisbon, Portugal - My mom and I are going to Portugal! We decided this in all of 2 days and I'm so excited! Hopefully, The Pilot can join us but we won't know that until a few weeks before we leave. Why Portugal? Why not? And because my mom booked her flight on mileage.

What are you looking forward to this summer?
Any big travel plans?

Feeling... exhausted. I have no idea why. I had such a relaxing weekend and this week has been such a struggle. I tried so hard to get up and run this morning and it was not happening. I'm pretty bummed about it.

Reading... "The Bully Pulpit" by Doris Kearns Goodwin ( and "The Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. This is one of my mom's favorite books but she never read it to be at bedtime somehow I never read it, so The Pilot and I are reading it now. It was written by a pilot...fitting, right?

Watching... Nothing great. We keep watching "Mad Men" and I.just.don' Every time I want to quit though, I read some blog post about how OMG SO AMAZING the series finale was so I keep pushing through.

Thinking about... summer

Working on... a new storage solution in our apartment. This weekend might get messy.

Loving... that The Pilot is finally flying again. He finished his training class in April and unexpectedly had 6 weeks off. It was great to have him home but he was getting really antsy about flying again. He hadn't flown since February!

I definitely took this picture the minute he walked in the door.
Check out those Captain's stripes!
Needing... a good night's rest...I got that this weekend, but apparently it wasn't enough.

Grateful for... a husband who is open to new and different opportunities.

Excited about... spending a lot of time outside this weekend.

That's what I've got on tap this weekend.

30 before 30

I was 22-years-old, fresh out of college and working my first job when I started this blog. I was living in Boston...a city I had moved to without having ever visited...just for a job that I didn't really love. One day, while flipping through a magazine in a doctor's office, I read an article called "Yes! You Can Run a Half-Marathon!" So, I decided to run a half-marathon and said that one day, I would run a Full too. I started this blog with running a marathon at the top of my 25 before 25 list.

You all know where that story went. Here I am...five years later...still blogging...still running...and I think it's time to nod my head to my roots and let you all know about something else I've been working 30 Before 30 list.

In no particular order, following the theme of some personal, some professional and some just fun, here is my 30 Before 30 list. Some of these are repeats from my 25 Before 25...either because I didn't get to them...or because I'm starting them again. You can read that list here.

1. Travel to Cuba.

Being a Cuban American, it's incredibly difficult to reconcile never having been there.
2. Run a sub-4 marathon.
3. Visit every Major League Baseball stadium. (22/30)
4. Cook my way through a cookbook.
5. Do a 30 day yoga challenge.
6. Go horseback riding.
7. Blog every day for a month.
8. Buy a Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress.

9. Go to the ballet.
10. Run another international marathon.
11. Go on another layover with The Pilot.
12. Take a cooking class with The Pilot.
13. Attend a black tie charity gala.
14. Order a wedding album.
15. Put all of my photos from my past travels into an album or scrapbook.
16. Start writing the novel I have brewing in my mind.
17. Go back to New Orleans.

18. See Kenny Chesney in concert.
19. Host a dinner party.
20. Pay off my credit card debt.
21. Make my own article of clothing.
22. Read a book in Spanish.
23. Perfect French macarons.
24. Go back to Paris with my mama.
25. Make a lattice-top pie.
26. Master these 30 recipes (i.e. know how to make them without looking at the recipe).
27. Go to one spot during all four seasons and photograph it with my DSLR.
28. Tour the White House.
29. Take a painting class.
30.Visit Carolann in Hawaii.

It's All About that Base...Week 3

I had a great training week last week. I got all of my workouts in, I felt great and I feel like I'm getting a great base under my belt.

I also had an awesome Memorial Day weekend. I got a lot of things done around the apartment on Saturday, spent a good amount of time reading, enjoyed a lot of time outside with friends and spent a lot of time by the water...both on the river and at the pool. It was a great weekend and perfectly relaxing. We had thought about maybe going out of town but The Pilot got put on a trip that didn't bring him home until late afternoon on Sunday and I'm so glad that I didn't brave the airports this weekend!

Anyway, back to training. I'm still sticking to my commitment of doing yoga twice a week, though I'd like to get 3 yoga workouts in this week. I still haven't done any of my PT exercises but between yoga, stretching and foam rolling, I'm feeling really good...especially after a challenging yoga session that focused on core work. I really need to get those exercises in though.

I hit 12 miles last week with a "long" run of 4 miles.. Again, not a very high number but the focus is on gradually building up my weekly mileage.

This is a little bit deceiving because I only did 2.5 on Thursday and Saturday, but Daily Mile rounds up for some reason. (PS if we aren't friends yet on Daily Mile, let's be!)

After Saturday's run, I did a yoga workout at home and then spent the rest of the day on my feet doing things around the house. By 8:30 I was toast. Those 4 miles might not seem like much but they took a lot out of me. I was so excited for yesterday's rest day but when we woke up, we got invited to join some friends on a bike ride to East Potomac Park to spend the afternoon at the pool. It was an 8 mile ride roundtrip which I did on a BikeShare bike since I don't have my own bike and man oh man was that a workout. Those Capital BikeShare bikes weigh a ton and I was definitely moving a lot slower than the group I was with, but was worth it!

I wasn't sure what to do this morning because my legs were pretty dead from the bike ride, so I decided to just play it by ear when I woke up. Clearly I spent way too much time in the sun this weekend because when my alarm went off, there was absolutely no getting out of bed. Today might just have to be a rest day, or I'll do something after work. We'll see!

Either way, I'm feeling really great about training!
Have you started training for a fall race? Or thinking about one?

Feeling... relaxed. Work is really busy right now but I was off site yesterday morning and all day today. It's so great to get out of the office just for a change of scenery sometimes!

Reading... "The Bully Pulpit" by Doris Kearns Goodwin. It's almost 1,000 pages and while it's interesting, I feel like a lot of it could have been left out.

Watching... "Mad Men." I don't know why I'm still watching it. I really don't get it but I think that's the appeal? Also, the season finale of "Scandal" was disappointing.

Thinking about... summer trips. I've got a few things planned that I'm super excited about!

Working on... researching some stuff for a little side project I'm hoping to work on.

Loving... that it's a 3 day weekend. I have no plans. Adventure awaits!

Needing... some cute new work tops...but I kind of hate shopping. I guess I should cave and sign up for Stitch Fix...I tried once and they said it would be almost 2 months before I got my first box. Yikes!

Grateful for... a job that I love.

Excited about... Chicago training. It's going really well this morning. I had a really good run this morning and every run is building my confidence.

What are you up to this Thursday?
Any fun Memorial Day weekend plans?

It's All About that Base...Week 2

I was really happy with how my first week of base training went. I did what I set out to do despite jetting off to California for 45 hours.

I woke up every morning at 6 to work out. Tuesday and Thursday I ran. Wednesday and Friday, I did yoga in my living room. Saturday, I went for an easy run in San Francisco.

Oh hell Daily Mile, I've missed you!
I'm not sure why I have a 'meh' face. All of my workouts were great last week except for one.

I didn't do a typical weekend long run last week, but as I said, I'm focusing more on building my weekly mileage and this week was definitely an increase from the previous week's 6 miles.

Yoga was a great way to complement my weeks. I definitely felt a lot of tightness in my hips and I'm hoping that over time, that will go away as I continue to complement yoga with running.

I still haven't figured out my training plan for Chicago. Mainly my biggest questions are 1) How often do I want to run each week?, 2) What do I want to start my weekly mileage ad and what do I want my highest weekly mileage to be?, and 3)What distance do I want to start my long runs at?

A lot of those questions will be easier to answer as I continue to build a base so I'm not to worried about it but for now, I'll revisit the goals I set for base training last week:

1. Build up weekly mileage - A. I would have liked to hit 10 miles last week but I think going from 6 last week to 9 this week is a smart start. I'll aim for 11 or 12 this week.
2. Focus on core/glute/hip strength - B. Yoga was a great way to focus on this but I didn't do anything in the line of PT exercises.
3. Aim for consistent paces - A. I was pretty happy with this. Sunday, The Pilot just took off. I wore my watch only so that I would know when I needed to turn around. While Thursday's run was slower than Tuesday's (9:50 versus 9:31), I maintained pretty even splits, starting slowly and easing into the run.

There you have it! I'm looking to keep things similar to last week, with the exception of doing a true "long" run this weekend.

What does your training look like right now?
Are you gearing up for something or winding down?

May 14, 2015


Feeling... good. I got a 3 mile run in this third morning workout of the week. I've never been able to get into a routine of working out in the morning but this week, I've been on top of it. I ran this morning and on Tuesday and did yoga yesterday. I'll either run again tomorrow or do yoga. We'll see!

Reading... "Yes Please" by Amy Poehler. I've heard mixed reviews about this book..which I don't find too surprising (I really didn't like Bossypants) but I'm enjoying it. I love Amy Poehler and this book feels like she's sitting in my living room having a conversation with me. It rambles in places and jumps from one thing to the next but that's Amy!

Also Reading... This ESPN article that Theodora posted about 19-year-old University of Pennsylvania track athlete Madison Holleran who committed suicide last January. This story is riveting. It's about how we portray ourselves on social media. My heart aches for this poor girl's family, but this story is true of so many others and needs to be told. I'm considering writing a #LifeUnfiltered post of my own now.

Watching... "The Office." Oh man...I used to love that show. One of the things on my 25 Before 25 list was to binge watch "The Office." Season 3 is easily my favorite. Some of those one liners...I die. "Dwight! You ignorant slut!"

Thinking about... all of the things in my apartment that still haven't been unpacked. There isn't much, but we're 6 months in, they're still lingering and it's driving me crazy. I might need to take a day off just to tackle those things, since I've avoided doing it on the weekends...

Working on... some really exciting stuff at work. This week marked 5 months since I started my job and I love it. Things are really picking up in the best way possible.

Loving... these raw almond butter cups. I recently discovered that I don't actually like peanut butter, despite pretending to for years, (I know!) but almond butter? I LOVE. I found this recipe on Pinterest and made it as a sweet treat for The Pilot and I last week and they are one of the best things I've ever eaten. He loved them. I loved them. They were super easy. We were super happy. For the base, I did not use raw almonds or raw oats...I just used oat flour. I would also double the topping recipe. My base:topping ratio was a little off. They were still delicious.  Go make them now.

Needing... to finish writing my Chicago training plan.

Grateful for... a husband who is willing to do doing the dishes. I hate doing the dishes. It is my least favorite chore. Sometimes, I'm super motivated about it...other times, not so much. We have a dollhouse sized dishwasher which makes things that much more complicated...then again, I remember when I didn't have a dishwasher so I guess I'm grateful for that too.

Excited about... wedding season. We're going to two weddings next month and I'm super excited about both of them! I remember everyone telling me that I would hate going to weddings after planning one. Everyone was wrong. I'm disappointed that we're only going to 3 weddings this year. Anyone have a wedding coming up? I know how to work a dance floor and I'm great with getting unwanted relatives away from you.

That's on my list!
What's on yours?

Why We Aren't Doing the Whole 30

A few weeks ago, after spending the weekend away and not having any food in the house, I fell down a rabbit hole of eating horribly. There were bagels every day, there were more slices of pizza in one night than I'm willing to admit. There were cookies and muffins and get the picture.

Needless to say, I felt awful.

For some time, I've been paying a lot more attention to what I'm eating..not just what I'm eating, but what's in the food I'm eating. Did you know that there are brands of regular milk that contain carageenan?

There has been a lot of hype lately about the Whole 30. I've seen countless blog posts, Pinterest recipes, and social media posts about Whole 30. Naturally, I was intrigued. Some of the recipes I saw on Pinterest looked delicious and I was really interested in the idea of reducing sugar and processed foods...but when I dove a little deeper, I realized that this wasn't something I could fully support or participate in. Here's why.

1. The Rules - The rules are pretty strict. No added sugar (Fine). No alcohol (Fine). No grains including "pseudo-grains like quinoa" (Umm what?). No legumes including beans of all kinds and chickpeas (again...Umm what?). No soy products (Fine.) No dairy, carageenan, MSG or sulfites (Fine) and no recreating baked goods or treats with "approved" ingredients.

What can you eat? Fruits, vegetables and meat...including bacon. Yes, bacon. You're not allowed to eat honey or quinoa but you can eat bacon.

Quinoa is exceptionally healthy. Bacon is not. As a pescatarian (who only eats seafood on occasion), I can't give up quinoa, chickpeas, edamame or any other forms of protein that I rely on. The vegetarian/vegan version of Whole 30 allows some exceptions (chickpeas) but not others (quinoa)...which makes me wonder...why is it ok for vegetarians to eat chickpeas but not meat eaters?

The rules also fall into the shaming category the way "Skinny Bitch" did. The language is...pretty aggressive. For example, when they say:
"Don't even consider the possibility of a 'slip.' Unless you physically tripped and your face landed in a box of doughnuts, there is no 'slip.' You make the choice to eat something unhealthy." Ouch. So if I'm doing the Whole 30 and eat a cup of quinoa one day, I ruined the whole thing? 
"Don't you dare tell us this is hard. Beating cancer is hard. Birthing a baby is hard. Losing a parent is hard. Drinking your coffee black. Is. Not. Hard." and "You won't get any coddling, and you won't get any sympathy for your 'struggles'."
2. It doesn't make sense - The biggest reason we aren't doing Whole 30 is because I can't understand why we should. The author of the book, "It Starts with Food" (I know they don't want it called a diet but anything that restrictive really can't be called anything else) is a Certified Sports Nutrionist (not a Registered Dietitian) but on the website's official "Can I have...?" , the author herself says some things that leave me skeptical like:
I spent hours pouring through the entire comment thread on that "Can I have..." page and I just couldn't wrap my head around some of the restrictions. They recommend not drinking smoothies even if they're compliant because you shouldn't drink your fruits and vegetables. Vanilla extract isn't ok because it contains alcohol. They even say that this isn't logical...but you still shouldn't do it. In one of the comments, Melissa even says that she often feels like writing "Because I said so" in response to all of the questions of why certain foods aren't compliant.

3. I don't want to feel like crap - Everyone I've read about or talked to has done the Whole 30 has described feeling hungover for most of it. The most common theme is that everyone seems to eat 6 Larabars a day because they're always hungry. Whole 30 even tells you to expect to feel like crap throughout it. It's simple, I don't want to feel like crap. I don't want to feel hungover, or like I want to kill things. I don't want to feel like my pants are getting tighter...even if it is only temporary. I don't think it's possible to restrict your diet so much and still feel good. I don't want to shock my body. It's why I've never done a juice cleanse.

4. I believe in moderation - Since May 4th (we started on a Monday), The Pilot and I have undertaken our own 'challenge' of sorts. We've eliminated processed foods, added sugars and alcohol. Both of us feel incredible. We're keeping carbs (like rice and whole grain pasta) and dairy to a minimum. It doesn't feel restrictive at all. What do I miss? Cookies. What does The Pilot miss? Chips...and meat. (We aren't restricting meat, I just haven't been cooking it). I'd so much rather eat a bowl of roasted chickpeas or edamame at 3:00 as a snack than eat 6 Larabars throughout my work day.

That's why we aren't doing the Whole 30. I'm an academic, I like to research before I embarked on something that I knew it wasn't right for me.  I had to do my research and quite frankly, eliminating something from my diet because someone "said so" isn't my game.

If you've done the Whole 30 and stuck with it, good for you! I mean that. I wouldn't even give it a shot, but that's because it wasn't right for me. You probably have or had just as many reasons for doing it as I had against.

There are some people who would benefit tremendously from the Whole 30. I think it's an excellent way to learn the ways your body reacts to certain foods in order to place an allergy or insensitivity. I think it's great for someone who doesn't have an idea what foods are processed or contain additives.

What do you think? Have you tried the Whole 30? Have you steered clear of it for similar reasons? I'd love to hear from you!

Thanks for reading!

It's All About that Base...(Training)

Base training.

It's been one month since the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler and I've run a grand total of three times since then.


I'm ok with it though. I'm in shape and I'm still a month out from when I need to start training for Chicago. Since I haven't been running too steadily though, I'm going to spend the next month building up a strong base that will hopefully get me to a strong start  my training cycle.

Base training is a way to get in shape for marathon (or half!) training when you aren't fully prepared to tackle that first week of training. While I'm still working out the details of my training plan, I know that I need to focus on three key things in order to have a successful start to training.

1. Building up weekly mileage.
I'll start my training with somewhere around 20 miles per week, gradually building up to about 50. Given that I ran 6 miles last week, I have some work to do to get to that number. I'll have plenty of time during my training cycle to build up my long run distance so for now, I'll be focusing on building up my weekly slowly adding more runs to my weekly training.

2. Focus on core/glute/hip strength.
We all know that core, glute and hip strength are the root causes of most running injuries, including mine. I'll be adding my PT exercises to my training on my off days in order to build that strength and have a strong start to my training.

3. Aim for consistent paces.
While base training isn't about getting faster or trying to nail race pace, since I've started running again, my pacing has been all over the place. There are days when 11:30/mile feels fast and other days were sub-9 feels easy. As of right now, I'm not looking to race Chicago, but that very well may change. I'm going to focus on running consistent paces and finding what feels comfortable so that when it comes time to incorporate speed work, I have an idea of what pace I'm actually pushing.

So, that's what I'm looking at. I'm not tying myself to any strict base training plan because I think that being on a training plan for 6 months straight would drive even my type A self bananas but I will be updating regularly on how things are going. Once June rolls around and the training plan gets taped to the refrigerator, you can expect the full play by play of how training is going each and every week until October!

Wish me luck!
Have you ever base trained for a race?

May 7, 2015


Feeling... disturbed. The Pilot and I watched The Boy in the Striped Pajamas last night and my goodness it was disturbing...not just in the this-is-a-movie-about-the-Holocaust sense, but in the sense that it was a historically inaccurate work of fiction and that nothing like this happened during the Holocaust which made the ending really twisted. I had been planning on reading the book and I definitely won't be now. I've read equally terrible reviews for the book as for the movie.

Reading... "Last Train to Istanbul" by Ayse Kulin. I didn't realize this book was about WWII when I picked it up but it's really good. It's a fictional story about two sisters who are separated after one of them is disowned by her family for marrying a Jewish man. What I find most fascinating though is that a central premise of the story deals with Turkey's diplomatic relations with France during WWII and how they fought to protect their Jewish citizens living in Europe. I really like it so far.

Watching... nothing that really excites me right now.

Thinking about... all of the blog posts sitting in my drafts folder that I haven't published. I was sick earlier this week and have had a lot of stuff going on and haven't gotten around to writing them. So, while I was on the quiet side this week, I've got some great posts planned for the coming weeks!

Working on... my marathon training plan. I found one that I'm happy enough with. I need to change some things around with the distances of my long runs plus how I'll be handling step back weeks and incorporating way more cross training, but I'm excited about it. I also had the great idea yesterday that a few times a week, I should take the stairs up to my 12th floor office as a form of cross-training. I have no idea whether or not I'm serious.

Needing... to run twice this week. Last week, I ran once. I haven't run this week. I was sick again on Monday and Tuesday (why am I always sick?!) and haven't gotten out there this week. I'm craving a good run but if I ease into this training plan by building up the frequency of my runs while building up the distance, I think that's a pretty good plan too.

Loving... this chickpea + farro salad. I made it for lunch yesterday and left some in the fridge for The Pilot and then he raved about it for the rest of the day. It took forever to make but my goodness, it's delicious. Farro may be my new favorite thing.

Excited about... summer. I've said this before and I'll say it again. There's no such thing as spring. There aren't 4 seasons, there are 3. We went from 40 degree mornings and still wearing jackets to summer and the 80s and I love it. I'll take the heat any day of the week. No jackets? I've worn a skirt or dress every day this week and I couldn't be happier. Now, I just need to start taking advantage of this weather to get some awesome sweaty runs in. I love it.

What are you excited about this week?
What's on your list?

Monday Morning Coffee

Good Morning!

I hope you're all well rested from wonderful weekends and excited to tackle the week ahead!

If we were having coffee... I would tell you that I had an incredible weekend. It was absolutely gorgeous out and I spent a lot of time with some wonderful people.

Friday night kicked off with Happy Hour with Jenn and her Mister. The Pilot and I met up with them at a bar in Clarendon for some happy hour specials, snacks and lots of laughs. Afterward, one of my old coworkers invited us to a barbecue in our neighborhood so we headed over there for some drinks and met some really awesome people! It was so nice afterward to just walk two blocks home, instead of having to worry about the metro.

If we were having coffee... I would tell you just how much I love that about my new neighborhood...that we have friends that are walking distance and that we bump into them when we're out and about.

I would tell you that Saturday, The Pilot and I took a day trip to Annapolis. I had never been there before and we spent the early part of the day wandering around the Naval Academy before Ally and her new fiance (as of that morning!) met us for lunch! It was so exciting to celebrate with them and spend the day on the water, watching all of the boats cruising by.

I would tell you that on Sunday morning, I finally went for my first post-Cherry Blossom run. The Pilot and I took Peyton on an easy 3 mile run on a new trail we discovered. It was my first shorts and t-shirt run of the season and it was hot and absolutely glorious. The temperature hit almost 80 yesterday and I loved it. I am definitely a warm weather girl and am so excited about summer.

If we were having coffee... I would tell you that I"m really excited about a few different things. First, The Pilot and I are embarking on 30 days of no processed foods and I'm really excited for it. It requires a lot of cooking (which I did a lot of yesterday) but I think it's going to be great and I'm hoping we can use this to try to transition into an almost completely un-processed household.

I would also tell you that my big sister launched a new project about which I'm so excited about! I'm writing a post about it soon so I won't keep you all in the dark for too long!

I would tell you that I'm really excited to start marathon training again. I haven't trained for a marathon since before I moved to DC and I'm excited to tackle some serious mileage in this city. My biggest focus right now is making it to the starting line, but that prospect alone is really exciting!  It's been 2 1/2 years since my last 26.2 and I miss the distance and can't wait for this one!

If we were having coffee... for the first time since September, I left my house without a jacket today and that it is finally spring and that, in itself, is enough for a great week!

Happy Monday!
Hope your weekend was awesome!
