Horner Elite Week 4

Finally, a week during this program that I get to complete 100%! After three weekends of back to back races I felt the urge to take time off because I "Earned" some rest.  When in reality I knew this was the time to buckle down, get my training on point and use the next five weeks wisely. My goals are no longer for aesthetics but for performance and I am ready to perform at my best. All though having some shredded abs and glutes would be awesome, I just don't obsess about it or use the scale to measure my progress. Speaking of weighing in, I haven't weighed myself in over two months (Slam the scale did me good!). I track my progress by my races. Not if I win or place, but how I FEEL

A Hill to Remember, Malibu Sprint 2015

One year ago I was lining up at a start line, freezing cold, not knowing what to expect and wondering what it was I was going to have to do. I told myself I was going to take it easy, but once we were released to go, I took off into the unexpected. The cold, rainy weather, mud and ice cold water was only a piece of what I was experiencing. Along the way I was running up steep hills, climbing over walls, crawling under what felt like a mile of barb wire, climbing ropes and doing burpees in the mud. I managed to finish and never felt so alive. That day was December 7th, 2013 in Malibu, CA at the Spartan Malibu Sprint, the day that marks the date when I would never be the same.

Year 28, Making the Best of ME!

It is 6am on a Sunday morning in San Francisco. It is dark, a little chilly and there are over 25,000 people (majority women) roaming around Union Square trying to find porta potties and their starting corrals. There is music, lights and the chatter of the thousands of women waiting anxiously to start the race that some may have trained months for. The energy is high as the DJ starts to hype the crowd up at the beginning of the starting line and the clock is counting down to let the runners well, RUN! The air horn blows off and the runners run.
