Switching it up = sunshine

Okay, what happened to my 3 minute plank?! Maybe it’s all the fun I’ve been having these last few months. Time to focus because I was dying at 30 second planks today and I have less than a month before Cabo (yikes). Best part throwing down the medicine ball as hard as possible(aggression all gone). Jakki has you in constant motion working the entire body. I can’t wait to go back for another round. Trying something new always brings me sunshine (as long as there are no heights involved).

Thanks Presidio Fitness and Tiffany Schade (@JuniorLeagueSF MAC)for organizing this event! #girlpower #sunshine

Pat Tillman Shadow Run

Pat Tillman

The Pat Tillman Foundation is very close to my heart. As an ASU Alumni, an Arizona Cardinal fan and having a brother a former Marine (or should I say a Marine because once a Marine always a Marine, right?).

I’ve participated in the Pat Tillman Shadow Run but this year we are making the 4.2 miles a family event! I would like you to join us this year for the Pat Tillman Shadow Run. Shadow runs are casual, fun runs/walks held in parks and recreational areas coordinated by the local ASU Alumni Association or clubs.
DATE: 4/26/2014
TIME: 9am to 11am
WHERE: Marina Green

There are shadow runs nationwide and I’ve included the link here so please check them out. http://pattillmanfoundation.org/pats-run/
Make it a family event bring the kids, the stroller and your friends. Or challenge yourself and beat your best time.

It’s a moment to remember and honor such a true hero. http://pattillmanfoundation.org/about-us/
I hope you will join us for some sunshine!

A year later….

So where to start? I was started this blog a year ago but then life happened (actually my laptop was stolen with my purse so that took the wind out of my sail).  After many moves, San Francisco is starting to feel like home.  It is quite the adjustment coming from spacious and sunny Arizona.  The weather has been the toughest.   I am fairly new to SF and in my search for literally sunshine I have found ways to make sunshine out of my new foggy surroundings.

The weather did put a damper on my spirits but also my wardrobe! It’s been quite the challenge to wear a maxi dress when it’s 46 degrees in July.  Learning to layer has been key as well as an early morning run or workout to get the blood pumping.  I have always loved fashion, fitness and food.

I admit I now own a Patagonia jacket.  SF uniform is Lululemon and a puffer jacket of sorts!  I don’t mind it I just don’t want to live in it daily!

Stay tuned as I gather my thoughts and pics. and we take this quest together.

Looking for sunshine
