I’m super excited for my friend and her family because they are going on a road trip soon. The kids are equally excited. The parents are jotting down activities for the long drive so the kids won’t get bored. Of course, they have the iPads, Nintendo DS and other electronic games to keep them busy, along with other activities. For sure, they will be needing rechargeable batteries like maha imedion here. I’ll have to recommend that to them!
Loading up on Vitamin C. I’ve had this bug for a few days now, but I need to get better and boost up my immune system to fight it off. I’ve been juicing with fresh fruits – I love it and it taste so good. It tastes better than any ready-made juice you can buy at the grocery. No other added sugars, etc. – just few ice cubes.
No long slow distance running for me this weekend. I am trying to boost up my immune system and fight off this bug. I was hit with the cought and cold symptoms like most of us here in the US. It is definitely out there. Please stay warm and healthy everyone. Boost up on your Vitamin C and Zinc supplements. I will have to do some juicing tomorrow for fresh fruits with load of Vitamin C and stay warm in my pajamas and fuzzy socks. Well, maybve after I do some research for a friend. They wanted me to look for linear actuators which, frankly, I have no idea what it is and what it’s used for but I will soon find out!

The 2nd Annual Los Angeles River 5K Fun Run is back! Last year’s inaugural event was such a success and everyone involved – volunteers and runners/walkers had a great time. I personally can’t wait for this year’s event. Last year, my husband and I volunteered and ran the race. It was also our first event with A Runner’s Circle, which I now cherish because from then on, we made amazing friends whom I will always cherish.
Not only will you be making friends but you are also helping out a good cause. Learn more about it here:

It has become my tradition to chop off my hair before New Year’s. Something I just like to do – and maybe with the belief of cutting your hair before new year’s for a brand new start, leaving all the past year’s burden and stress. Not sure if there’s any truth in that but this is something I will be doing again soon. I just need to find a nice salon or hair dresser that uses a really good texturizing shears. I really want to try a Korean salon again. Last year, I tried something different but this year I’m going back to my old hair dresser.
Here I am still engrossed and shocked all at the same time by what happened today in Newtown, CT. I just can’t get over the fact that those were innocent kids!! Anyway, tomorrow I have to be up early and it’s already 1 am. My husband is now commanding me to go to bed and sleep so I wouldnt complain later when my alarm clock sounds off. Tomorrow will be a long day for me – Christmas shopping and hopefully get a run in the evening. Please don’t rain!
I heard about freeway traffic last weekend although it’s really not a surprise about LA traffic since it happens every single day but the past few weekends has been awful maybe because of the various graduations happening at different colleges. Some of them will definitely be wearing their lapel pins proudly after crossing the stage. I remember years ago when I graduated and how proud I was and my parents were that day. A moment worth treasuring forever!

Today was such a difficult day for the nation. My heart and prayers go out to those families who lost their loved ones especially those innocent little angels and to those survivors who now has to go through this traumatizing event in their lives.
No one should lose a child under these horrific circumstances. Big sigh…
I finally received my drive + play for my iPod in the car. Unfortunately my car isn’t as new so I don’t have an aux slot for an iPod or iPhone. Now, I will be able to listen to my music. Sometimes I end up flipping through radio stations to find a nice song that I want to listen to. On my way home, I heard about X-Factor – you know that music show. I wish though I could sing as good as them and play some kind of instruments like Electric Violas at WWBW! It has been a dream of mine to learn to play any instrument! I guess it’s never too late for anything, eh?
Yes, I can proudly say that I am a marathoner! I’m so happy I was able to complete my first 26.2 miles! I did my first marathon last weekend in Sacramento. It was such an overwhelming experience. The weather didn’t quite cooperate – it was raining with gusty winds the whole 20+ miles. It started to clear up only on mile 22ish or something. It was actually fun running in the rain but the wind, not so much!
I can’t wait for my next one! More post about my first marathon experience soon…
