Crunch Time

As it turns out, doing a hot yoga challenge and training for a half marathon are difficult on their own … and together even more so.

I’m 38 days into my “60 day” yoga challenge (which is technically 63 days – July 7 to September 7) and have only completed 10 classes. This means I have 25 days left to complete the remaining 20 classes. My only consolation is that I can still theoretically finish the challenge without  having to do any doubles. 

Meanwhile, I have also been neglecting my half marathon training. Although I have increased my distance to up to 15 km, I have not been doing an adequate number of runs per week. 

I am not ready to admit defeat, however, and will have to pay for my slacking off last month by doing yoga almost every day plus get back to running at least three time a week. On the plus side, I now consider “slacking off” to mean only doing a couple yoga classes a week and only running a total of 75 km last month.



I started running about three years ago. Until this time i had never considered myself a runner and actually hated running. I’m not sure what changed but i’m glad it did! I enjoy sharing my thoughts, training, and experiences through my blog and encouraging and supporting others in their running journeys.

Since becoming a runner, I have completed a handful of half marathons, three full marathons, and four ultra marathons. However, my biggest accomplishments have been running the Rim2Rim2Rim in the Grand Canyon and completing a seven-day, 250km stage race in the Alps. These were adventures of a lifetime and something I had never imagined that I would do even in my wildest dreams!
