Reflections #4: Taste the Happiness

Reflections #4: Taste the Happiness

German culinary art is outstanding. People come from all over the world to try some of Germany’s most admired cultural venues. I most admire the baking tradition here. It is hard to miss the “Bäckerei” or “Café” signs at almost every street corner. Here, people can satisfy their appetite by trying the more tradition breads […]

 

Reflections #3: Ferry this, ferry that

Reflections #3: Ferry this, ferry that

Traveling by boat sounds time consuming, but really it really isn’t in this niche of Germany. Although I live in Warnemünde (GER), the only way to quickly get to downtown Warnemünde, is by boat – specifically by ferry. At first I thought buying the occasionally ferry ticket would be enough, but I’ve come to realize that […]

 

Reflections #2: Getting there isn’t always as easy as it seems

Reflections #2: Getting there isn’t always as easy as it seems

For those of you who travel a lot, you will easily be able to relate to my experience. Even those who don’t travel, yet have a busy schedule based on specific appointments, meetings, and events, you will also be able to know how I felt on my trip from San Francisco to Rostock, GER. It […]

 

Turlock Road Race

Turlock Road Race

I was thrilled it didn’t rain at all for the race. The weather forecast people lied (but what’s new). Joined Evan and Co. for the early morning ride to Turlock, had a good warm up and was off to the starting line right on time. Still, I need to get used to showing up a […]

 

Off the Front Omnium–Circuit Race and Time Trial

Off the Front Omnium–Circuit Race and Time Trial

I was a bit disappointed by the turnout in today’s race. Compared to last weekend, at the Bariani RR, where there were 57 Cat 4 women in the race, today’s 5 racers was nothing. For the circuit race, we started off all together for the first lap and then it quickly spread out a bit. […]

 

2014 Bariani Road Race

2014 Bariani Road Race

I hadn’t even considered doing the Bariani RR until Jen got a hold of me and asked me to join her on the long haul to Zamora, CA. If she hadn’t gotten a hold of me, I would have come out to do CCCX. However, since I like to travel, especially to new places, I […]

 

Red Kite Omnium Series #2 Criterium

Red Kite Omnium Series #2 Criterium

What a tiring morning, but it was worth it. For the Red Kite trip my dad wanted to tag along. After a wonderful dinner with my family at my favorite restaurant, Yama Sushi, and feasting on the leftover cake my mom brought back from work (her co-workers must not appreciate German marble cake as much […]

 

Reflection: It’s almost been three years

Reflection: It’s almost been three years

Flipping through my pictures on Facebook from the last couple years brought back some of the great memories I had during my internship at the Marine Science Center through the Universität Rostock in 2011. Since I was blogging on a different page through the DAAD German Academic Exchange Service (Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst) I thought […]

 

UCSC Salinas Valley Criterium…Hitting the learning curve hard

UCSC Salinas Valley Criterium…Hitting the learning curve hard

Where to begin? I really didn’t even want to write a race report for this past Sunday, mainly out of pure frustration. I know I have made a lot of progress since I first picked up my bike  in early December after mainly focusing on getting into running shape, but even though my fitness level […]

 

Death Valley Borax Marathon

Death Valley Borax Marathon

I like to pick my running races depending on scenery, and since I had never been to the Death Valley before, I had decided to race the Death Valley Borax Marathon in early November 2013. This was my first marathon and for that my goal was simply to finish and to run at a decent […]
