Wings for Life – Live with Carley

On April 1st, I received an invite to host a live video on the Wings for Life Facebook page. The video is about stretching for runners and it was hosted by me and my friend Carley, the yoga-certified-run club pacer-Iron Woman-(bird lady) @TheHeartRacer

If you missed it live, you can still watch it on the main Wings For Life page or here.

 

See You May 7th Sunrise FL

Marathon Training in Weston

January 2017, a group of fast runners (or should I call the elite?) from Weston asked me for a video.                                                                                                                                                                                I confess I can’t run that fast so I drove by, in order to keep up with their pace.                      The final results you can watch in this short video.

 

 

GoProGirl’s Master Guide to Florida’s Run Clubs

After lots of requests and questions over the years, I am sharing  THE LIST for all Run Clubs in South Florida. When I joined the South Beach Run Club in 2010, they were the only run club group in town (at least that I knew of).      Luckily, that was just the beginning.  7 years later and we can easily lost count of how many groups are available.

And ALL FREE!

I think the best way to do this LIST is to separate by LOCATION  and DAY OF THE WEEK.  I hope to cover all groups and not forget anyone out! ( I can always update new groups in this list, please contact me and I will add your group info)

Jingle Bell Jog 2015

I know I already have a video about this race but that one was in a different city (FLL) and I did not run, I was in the truck with Santa.        2015 I was able to run along with all those ‘Santa Runners’ and had a lot of fun!  (unfortunately, I didn’t have time to edit and finish this video right after the event, but still better late than never)

Watch til the end, do not miss the kids loop, it is too cute!

Go Run Miami

4th of July GoRunSoleRunners 5k 10k Kendall 

It was hot, humidy but around 800 runners faced the challenge. Officially a tradition. 

Double 5k Weekend

Well…there is always a first time! Running 2 5ks in the same weekend was new and actually easier than I thought.
Starting on Saturday at Goals not Guns 5k Run, Walk or Pedal in downtown Miami. Thanks to Mr Frank Carollo and Frankie Ruiz, the runners could register for free and, we had fun taking over parts of downtown, little havana and back to bayfront park.

And on Sunday, the Tribe took over West Kendall for another run: GoRun5k.
This was a very special event, combined with the store’s 1st year Anniversary. Pure and great vibes got together for a great party after the race. Here I share some images from that amazing and fun morning.

Gopro A1A Half Marathon

Finally could cut and finish the video. It is a bit long but some things I can’t just cut it out.

Thanks for watching!

Publix A1A Half-Marathon

Run for Danny Alvarez – full video

As I have mentioned before, Claudio Navas ran the Miami Half Marathon in Honor of Danny Alvarez. Here is the full video of Claudio’s journey from start to finish line.

 

Jingle Bell Jog Miami -12.20.15

I can’t believe I ended up skipping  this post last month! Since I did the video  in 2014 for the same race but in Ft. Lauderdale, I knew it would be  fun to run and I actually had a blast! I am working on editing a short video from that day and for now, I would like to share some images.

Video will soon be ready!

MacArthur Repeats Workout

Happy 2016!                                                                                                               Before the year ended, on 12.29.15, the Baptist Health South Florida Brickell Run Club had a special run as part of the training for the  Miami Marathon upcoming on 01.24.2016. The workout: run the MacArthur bridge twice (or at least once like I did). About 250 runners registred for this free event provided by BHSFBRC. Since the Venetian Causeway is out of the Marathon course, we (yes,  we cause I will be running the half marathon for a very special reason, wait for it) will be running over the MacArthur Causeway both ways (right at the start, on the first mile and after the loop around South Beach, you can find the course map  and also register for the race, both options available here: http://www.themiamimarathon.com)

For now, I want to share how was the workout on this short video. We met by the Children’s Museum around 6:30pm. Video is dark but still fun to watch. Where you there?

See you on the next run club around Miami!

10 Days to Run with Serena

Alright, day is coming. Lots of working in process and this may be my last post til race day.   I’m hoping you already registered (if not,click here now – http://theultimaterun.com/)

*Her favorite sport to watch other than tennis is gymnastics.

* She has competed at three Olympics and won four gold medals.

*She has lost just nine matches in her 15 U.S. Open appearances. The only person to beat her twice is sister Venus Williams (2001 and 2005).

*She has won 28 straight matches and four straight titles at Grand Slam events.

*Her middle name is Jameka.

*Her favorite city in the world is Rome.

*At 15 years between her first (1999) and most recent (2014) titles, Williams holds the record for most years between U.S. Open singles championships.

*Her favorite food after a workout is a Gatorade bar to replenish protein and carbs.

*Other than dogs, her favorite animals are tigers.(And she LOVES dogs, that’s my favorite!)

Do Not miss this great opportunity to Run with Serena Williams on December 13,2015.

The Miami Marathon & Half-Marathon 2015

Hello everyone, I usually don’t write anything but here it is: I did run my first half-marathon and  I would like to share a short video.   On Sunday 25th, I carried my quikpod with  a GoPro for 13.1 miles.  It took me around 3 hours to finish  and here is some of what I saw. (A Longer video is available on the same channel, I interacted a lot with other runners during  the entire race and I keep them all in the 8 minute video.)

I had fun running, I hope you have fun watching.

Thanks for the support!  #GoProGirl
