Celebrating vegan Halloween in LA & 13 in 2013 is complete!

Image
Den and I celebrated Halloween this year by by going to a meetup given by Vegans of Instagram at Sage Organic Bistro. I went as a vegan vampire and Den went as a T-Pain (a rapper). The party was fun, we met a lot of cool people and will definitely go to Sage again in the future. Below are photos from before and at the party.





I just recently completed my last two running events for 2013 which means I completed 13 events in 2013! Below are photos from the last two events I completed for the year, the Sugarland Candy Rush Run and Top Gun Virtual Run. I can't wait for next year to complete 14 in 2014.




13 in 2013 update

It's been so long since I've blogged, I'm feeling a little rusty (ha ha); but like most things once you learn to do something, you'll always remember how to do things. In my attempt to do 13 running events in 2013, I'm happy to report that I've accomplished six more events since I last wrote in May (which brings my total to 11) and here's pics of the medals below:












I have two more virtual races for the end of the year so I'm really excited about completing this goal and my main goal for next year is doing enough races to be able to join the half-marathon fanatics as well as running some races in the Roll and Rock running series.

More medals for and job news

In my quest for completing 13 running events in 2013, I have so far finished four events with nine more to go! In April, I plan on doing two events, the Hollywood Half Marathon and the 1st ever Peace Love Run in San Diego. May will be two virtual runs, one for Cinco De Mayo and one for Spring Bling. I am so grateful that I have the chance to be active and what can I say, I love getting medals too :-) Below are photos from my last four running events.





In other news, I was recently hired by the Kern County Library District as their digital librarian! I am super excited to be able to start my career as a librarian but I am sad to be leaving El Camino after two years. Here's photos from my going away party and photos with some of my employees.



I'm really excited about all of the changes that are taking place in my life and will do what I can to make everyone proud of me while staying true to myself.

Goals for 2013 and the first annual Vegan Health & Fitness Expo (day 1)

Happy 2013! For the new year, I've decided to make my main goal for the year to complete 13 running events in 2013. So far I've already completed my first running event on New Year's Day and already have 12 more races lined up of various lengths (5K, 6K,10K and 13.1 races).



This weekend,  me and Dennis went to the first annual Vegan Health & Fitness Expo hosted by Vegan Health & Fitness Magazine at the Radisson at LAX. It was really fun and informative and the food was awesome.


Spice's presentation was very informative and fun. Spice talked about her life as well as her journey to veganism and food combining.






Koya Webb and I have become friends after having run into each other at some many different vegan events. At her presentation, she talked about her upbringing as well as having a healthy vegan life and end the presentation with a exercise demonstration that was so easy, anyone can do it. Koya is a real sweetheart and is very down to earth.

We had a great t…
