Just another single 30-year old Argentine girl living the American dream in Washington DC and trying to run faster. Graduated from Southern Utah University in 2003, then moved to DC.

Happy new year!

I've decided to start a new blog in the new year, since I will be focusing a lot more on biking and cross-training. I hope you all keep in touch at argyrocket.fastrunningblog.com

Is anyone more excited than me about 2009? I don't think so!

Ran to the office the short way on an absolutely positively gorgeous DC morning, 45 degrees, a bit windy, blue sky, shining on me, nothing but blue sky, do I see.

Right shin a bit sore but feels better after it has warmed up. Took a few walking breaks to loosen it up.

A bunch of friends and I rented a cabin near Luray, just outside Shenandoah National Park, to spend New Year's eve and a couple of days after that. I see lots of biking and some running in those days, so I'm thinking of going to another spin class tonight to get me in shape to tackle the hills of the famous Skyline Drive... we'll see if that happens...

I cannot believe 2008 is over.

Reunited-and it feels so good!

After an entire week of no running, finally I got back to it. Thankfully I was able to make it home last night, after many delays in Aspen and Denver. Woke up and it was like 60 degrees outside! Almost 70! So I went out and ran around the capitol and back, about 4 miles, more like jogging and taking walking breaks because of my shin. It hurt a bit but after it's warmed up it stops hurting. Overall a great run. Then my... ehem, ehem... boyfriend came by and we biked around the RFK stadium to the National Arboretum and back around - many hills in the Arboretum. He's lived pretty much all his life in the DC area and had never been to the Arboretum, one of my favorite sights in DC. Crazy!

A great day. I look forward to more running and biking this week, to get back in shape after a week of skiing (Skiing at the level I'm in is not "real" exercise... It works the muscles, yes, but not really the cardio much... I don't think...)
