Ice bath!!
Aug 28, 2011 by Sandi Yam

This past saturday I ran 10 miles in 2 hours, my personal record for distance. I had a great time running along the ocean and taking in the views of Half Moon Bay. It was nice to focus on all the campers and horseback riders rather than the burning and cramping in my leg muscles.

There were a lot of people running for Team in Training out that morning, The fall team just started their training and its incredible to think that all these people are running for the same reason: to help people fight cancer and fund research to prevent cancer. That thought gave me the extra push I needed to finsh my run.

Afterwards, me and my running mates jumped into the ocean to ice our muscles. We sat in the ocean for 15 minutes, and I dont even want to think about how sore I would have been ater that. Here are some photos of the "sweaty bettys" and ice bathing!!

6 Miles!!!!
Jun 28, 2011 by Sandi Yam

This past Saturday, I ran a new personal record of 6 miles in about an hour and 20 min. Not too shabby, I think the track workouts are really helping me out. I ran with a great group of gals, who kept me so entertained that I didn't pay attention to how exhausted I was!! At the end of the run, I could see the finish line and started to walk, but our team captain Ellen, grabbed me by my arm and said "Oh no girl, were finishing this thing!! You can do it!" Our little group pushed on and we all made it across the finish line, exhasted but we did it!! I can tell i'm improving beacuse this run didnt leave me as sore as my first run, I couldn't believe how good I felt afterwards...I'm in the middle of this pic!!!!

First Run!!
Jun 01, 2011 by Sandi Yam

Yesterday, I ran my first miles as an "endurance athlete," I did alot better than I thought I would! I was going to run 2 miles at first, but thought if I drove all the way here I better push myself a little. I ran 4 miles in about 50 minutes but it was getting really hard towards the end. I was running with my awesome mentor Krissy, and she's done a bunch of these. She kept us in conversation which at some points I thought "oh my god, i can't even breathe let alone keep up this conversation" but I know it will be worth it in the end. I planned my first fundrasing event (a dessert party in the middle of june!) so I'll be facebooking you all about that really soon. Heres a pic of me running....I need to get some more serious looking gear....
