Conqur LA Challenge - #DeeOnTheRun

What better motivation to continue running than to sign up for the triple LA running threat?! Santa Monica 10K, Pasadena Half Marathon and the LA Marathon!

That's right! I will be running the Conqur LA challenge and I couldn't be happier!! I tried to sign up for it last year but it sold out the day I was going to sign up, so it left me with only running the LA Marathon.

I've had such a hard time getting back into my running rhythm post this years LA Marathon, so I figured why not sign up for the Conqur LA challenge? It'll help me get back into running a lot more since I will basically be training the second half of the year and into the new year.

While running the LA Marathon earlier this year and even a week after, I told myself I would NEVER put myself through another Marathon again and here I am, already registered for next years! It's such a great experience that I truly believe everyone should go through. You not only get to see the city on foot, but you experience all the love and support from everyone. It's an indescribable feeling.

You have to find something that keeps you moving and for me, running is what keeps me active. I find it so therapeutic and soothing, which I know if you're not a runner, that may seem a bit odd. I never thought I'd love running as much as I do now. It not only helps me stay in shape, but it also helps me mentally whenever I feel stressed or going through tough times.

Aside from these races, I also plan on registering for the BlacklistLA 5k and the Rock N' Roll LA Half Marathon. 

I can't wait to share this training journey with you all!

P.S. I just recently applied to become an LA Marathon ambassador for next years race. I'm crossing my fingers that I get it!
