Napa to Sonoma Half-Marathon Update

Hello Friends, Family, & Neighbors,
Happy post Memorial Weekend! Hope you had a great time!
You may already know I'm running a half-marathon Sunday, July 21, 2013. It is a run from Napa to Sonoma! That's 13.1 miles. I've never ran in that area and am looking forward to that day.
Help me raise money for Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America, use the link to donate. The website is secure, fast and easy to use.
 
 
It is tax deductable.
I decided to join Team Challenge to help find a cure to Crohn's & Colitis patients. I don't have it, thank God. But since I joined with them, they have guided me with proper training, stretching and continue to coach me along the way. As we enter our 12th week, I have had no injuries in my training! I feel pretty good as I move onward with it. The funds I raise go directly to the foundation. Some portion will cover one night at the Hilton Hotel in Santa Rosa and pasta food the night before my run!
We train twice a week, Tuesday's and Saturday's. The other days I do cross training either at the gym or walk a couple of miles. Last Saturday, I had my longest run, 10 miles! We alternate locations on Tuesday's Kezar and Embarcadero and Saturday's are at lovely Golden Gate Park.
I'd deeply appreciate any support you can offer. I understand, of course, that some years are leaner than others, so if it's not a good time to donate, I'd love it if you could forward some of your own friends and family my email. Every little bit helps.

Proud to be a Native San Franciscan

The past six months (or should I say years living in Dogpatch District) I've been blessed with amazing experiences I had not expected. As some of you know me well enough, I stay active in Dogpatch community since I moved here almost 14 years ago.  I believe the universe wanted me to live on this side of town in San Francisco before anything was really here.  I thought (and still do) volunteering every year for almost 13 years, is something great to do for the community and the neighborhood I live in. I've seen it grow and grow, almost like a child like where you want to protect it, defend it and let it grow to something so wonderful. Really, it's not me, it's the community that I fed off of over the years because of their passion, drive and determination in protecting this area - Dogpatch Historic District. Summer 2009, I was elected to be on board of Dogpatch Neighborhood Association as Member Coordinator/Corresponding Secretary. Re-elected last October 2015 f

Happy Spring Season 2015!

Poem: Eve of Spring Season in San Francisco Sunshine...      ...birds happily chirp or I'd say they sing and fly around excitingly. The smell of fresh air, pretty flowers bloom and sun shinning bright in neighborhood. Runners out running along the embarcadero as I watch them from the Muni T line on my way to work.  I continue to believe and have hope. I am constantly reminded to be inspired and to inspire.  Stay proud of who YOU are.  ~vanessa "To be interested in the changing seasons is . . . a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring."  —  George Santayana
