Half Training: Weeks 8-10

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there!

Happy Mother's Day, mom! My mother at the Seattle-Luoyang Peony Festival

I love my mom, but she drives me crazy sometimes, and vice-versa! 😛 My mom has always been hardworking and I admire her for that. She’s also the type to give you everything she has, while not taking any for herself. We always want to shower her with gifts, but she never wants them. Let us love you mom!!!~  ♥♥♥

Anyway, I have not updated since Week 7, crazy! I need to catch up—but first: some photos

Hello world!

Hello, world!

I am a Freelance Graphic Designer based in Seattle and I’ve been on a fitness kick for the past few years.

I started working out on the machines at the gym to lose weight, but they started to get boring. Luckily, a super encouraging trainer suggested I join her Boot Camp class and I take 2-3 of the 1-hour sessions each week.

In the summer of 2013 I fell in love with running—I’m slow as molasses, but I find it super enjoyable! In June 2014 I will run my first Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon! Wish me luck.
