Recap on week twenty.

It’s Sunday and the last workout is completed for the week. I love the end of the week because that means that tomorrow is Monday and Monday means fresh week aka endless possibilities. I’m closing this week with 75.4 km / 46.8 miles with an average pace of totally awesome. If you are a data…

Relationship with ‘hills’: Complicated.

Here’s my theory on my quick recovery from the ankle injury last year. Right about the time I was starting to feel better we moved to Los Angeles where I was faced with hills on hills on hills from day one. You might not picture LA a hilly city and you are right because most…

Love letter to the runners.

I’m back in my hometown. If you’ve been following my journey, you know that I was in Los Angeles for the past eight months. Sometimes you have to go to the other side of the world to realize that you were at the right place to begin with. The best part about moving so much…

One coffee at a time part 2..

As promised I keep exploring the specialty cafes in Budapest .. Let’s talk about a few more of my favorite spots. One of the first places I visited when moving back to Budapest was Pazar Caffe.

Own Your Journey

What is your reason for working out? Someone asked me a few days ago how I stay committed. My immediate reaction was to tell him not to start exercising for the wrong reason. But then it got me thinking.. what makes a reason good or bad?! I can’t tell you how to stay committed. You have to…

Bring some clarity to yourself!

Do you ever talk about yourself in the third person? Sometimes I do as a joke but I’ve never dedicated three pages of my journal to it.. until a few nights ago. First of all I haven’t wrote anything down since we moved to Los Angeles from Budapest. I wasn’t sure why until I finally opened…

Patience

Today I managed to run two miles.. and I’m really excited about it! Why? Because I didn’t run for a week and as we all know it, NOT running sucks.. Couple of Fridays ago I could feel my right foot acting up but as a very wise runner would do, I went out and ran ten miles…

It’s been a while..

Confession time: haven’t visited my blog for months because I was too scared to look at it. I’ve been feeling guilt and laziness and I was too much of a baby to face these feelings. I knew that as soon as I opened the page all of those emotions would start to come to me…

Why NOT running sucks..

Recap on my week of (not) training. There’s a Nike shirt with a logo on it that goes “Not Running Sucks”.. and indeed it sucks! I managed to overtrain (what else is new?) and came down with a minor injury. Not exactly sure what I did wrong, besides ignoring the pain for weeks. I can blame…

Sydney in my running shoes..

I thought I would share a great moment from my running adventures. I’m going all the way back to January when I took on a big challenge and ran every day for two months. When I was in the middle of this whole running strike, my husband and I travelled around the world for 3 weeks…
