Self-compassion, not weakness – 24/100

After flying in from SF and getting dropped off at home yesterday, I rushed to unpack, change, and head to the gym to train. I had run a pretty intense 7.5 course the day before at the Bay to Breakers event and my legs were still sore, especially from the crazy SF hills. I still wanted to […]

Portland in a nutshell

I had booked the week of vacation without much thought beside racing to schedule it before I got staffed. I had booked the flight to Portland, OR without much thought beside glorying in the fact it cost about $130 (which actually ended up costing $250 lol). I had contacted a good friend, Ben, without much […]

Marathon thoughts

Things felt

The next train left at 8:25am. I flicked my wrist to check the time: 8:04am. “Halmoni, I have to go.” With that I threw in my clothes and packed my bag. I had spent the night there as I would be leaving Korea soon and it was a courtesy familial visit. She walked me out […]

Things learnt

T-Mobile will continue to receive my very loyal patronage. It’s no longer just about the cheaper cost but the legit-ness of its international versatility. You really cannot beat not spending one moment’s concern of purchasing SIM cards and wondering if i’ll be estranged from google maps and the rest of the world. sure, not all […]

Simple things

Having an awesome travel partner makes the biggest difference. It’s the difference of feeling comfortable enough to do and say what you want and still meeting the other human being where they’re at. Plus, ’tis a nice combination of getting places and following plan and always leaving space for the unforeseeable. If you’re reading this girl, love ya! Bye!

A little bit on travel and work

This week has been a flurry of workworkwork and planning for Korea. I just booked an Airbnb ($12/night – not bad!) for 6 nights. I’m watching flight prices (I heard they’re the lowest 50-some days before flight date so I’m waiting on that). I’ve ordered a couple backpacks so I can try them out (free shipping […]
