Favorite running memory: The one thing I think about EVERY time I run on the Burke Gilman Trail is the time I was running along enjoying my time outside and a huge Canada Goose started chasing me, its wings pulled back, hissing – it scared the snot out of me.

    I love those capris – so cute! I think I’ll have to get some! (: I like that you said you’re “traing for LIFE” – that’s a great way to think about it because when you’re in shape, you’re prepared for anything! I also love a good bagel and cream cheese before a morning run – what a great way to start the day! PS. Great video! haha (:
