Have not run with anyone for what seems too long. A result of various things, return from injury, aches, slowing down, life stuff.
#
It was nice to be out yesterday and spend time with the @wrucrew crew kids and @hecisdead
#
Of course a morning run ended up in a full day affair ending up at the @nikenyc #equality event, a great turnout and see more folks ✌🏽

Finally the Grammys get something fucking right. About time.

What an Authoritarian regime looks like.

Trump is basically telling 18% of the US population we don't matter.

This on top of the White House taking down the pages on civil rights, climate control and LGBT issues.

A big resounding FUCK YOU to Florida Cubans that sided with this asshole. Ashamed to include you in the Latino conversation.

I took this image at last years @orchardstreetrunners Women's 10K.

In light of this weekend's marches around the country, I'm proud to know many of you incredible women and you are all an inspiration.
#
My 18 yr old daughter @unbellaievable is in DC today in support. I'm so proud that at her age she knows what needs to be done in these times and has strong women to inspire her.

The view from Ridge Vineyards from 2,300 feet up overlooking Palo Alto, Silicon Valley and San Jose. I was told on a clear day one can see SF πŸ‘€
#
Thank you for the invite to the Monte Bello facilities and the experience.

IT WAS A GOOD DAY
#
Today's sunny 6 mile run on the Eastern span of the Bay Bridge was something I had my mind set on. @bridgerunners taught me to appreciate a good bridge run. The three mile incline was really not as bad as I imagined, absolutely not like the 59th St. Bridge. Best part is once you hit Treasure Island you have three miles downhill.

My own personal oasis 🌲
#
Nestled near the Lake Merced side of SF State is one of my favorite spots to run. This pretty little track is surrounded by trees and is almost always empty.
#
Today as I started my workout, the SF State women's team went into their activations and workout, seamlessly leaving the inside lane to a couple of people getting in some work.
#
I reached out to @paavozatopek this morning and he provided a work out to get me back in the flow.
- 1 mile warmup + activations
- 4x400, 8x200
- 1 mile cool down + stretching
#
As I walked of the track post my stretch session, headset on loud and hood over my head, to my surprise one of the young ladies from the track team held out her fist and mouthed "good job". I bumped her fist and said thank you. Sometimes the smallest gestures are worth so much.

GET HAPPY 😊
#
Last night I had the pleasure of hanging out with @happyperez in SF. Notice the appropriate attire πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
#
It was eye opening to hear the experiences of a native Brooklyn girl moving to SF. Even after 20 years in NYC, I still feel like an outsider at times.
#
It's all love Happy, you'll be back in NYC soon enough, for now enjoy my city 🌁

Home is where the ❀️ is. Taking a much needed break from NYC.
#
This morning's miles felt so good, Ocean Beach to Lake Merced. I texted @paavozatopek knowing it's a route he is familiar with and sent him some images. Post yesterday's rain, the mix of the bright sun + ocean air + eucalyptus + pine trees was both invigorating and relaxing at the same time.
#

I'm going to test my body a bit while here, put in some speed work, tempo, swim, visit sfrunco and visit old friends and get some fun miles in. In between I'll get in a wine tasting or two in Santa Cruz and Napa πŸ˜‰
