My First Half-Marathon: 5 Lessons Learned

Last week I ran my first half-marathon in Miami annual Marathon race. It was AMAZING! But more on that later. A little back story on why I decided to run the half-marathon in the first place: I needed to push myself to achieve a goal to lose weight. I gained a couple of pounds and it was getting so hard to lose loose those extra pounds. (Damm you adulthood!) That’s why I decided to start running. I found a training plan on Pinterest and that was it. I immediately signed up to the race so I don’t “change ny mind” or “back out” from achieving my goal.   I trained for 16 weeks, 3 times a week. Every week the distances got longer and the training harder. With that on mind, I lost the extra weight in only a couple of months. (Yay me!) Here are five lessons I learned after running my first Half-Marathon:   1. Fuel-up! Always bring energy pick-me-ups to have during the race. At Km 15/Mile 9.3, I began feeling a …

“I’m Moving to Argentina…” Here’s Why:

I used to think Miami was so boring. Then I realized Miami isn’t the problem, but the only person to blame for dull social life was me. I’ve been living in this city for eight years now, and as time passed my daily life became routine – also known as: boring. “Something has to change!” I thought. I realized I got tired of Miami and that I needed to take action to make my life more interesting. That’s when the idea of taking a few months off work to live abroad surged. And just like that I was already planing my Argentina adventure. Here are six reasons why I chose Buenos Aires: Reason #1 – Meet new people. I literally don’t know anybody in this country, which will force me to go out and socialize. I am looking forward to meet new people and make some new friendships during my stay.   Reason # 2 – Beware of burnout. My brain is fried from working in creative writing for social media. If I don’t take a …

Another year flew by. It feels like not too long ago I was writing the 2016’s A Year in Review blog post. Time seems to go by faster as I get older, which scares me. Does this mean that in a blink of an eye I’ll be 35 years old, married with two kids? Oh, my. On my first three years, I was unstoppable. As soon as one trip ended, I had another adventure booked to start in less than three weeks. But early this year I realized that the world is not going anywhere and neither do I. If I keep traveling at this pace, I’ll travel the entire world by the age of 45. Does this mean that at such young age I would stop traveling because I already saw it all? Hell no.    Secondly, I am four years older than when I started my adventure around the world. Things have changed – I’ve changed. At 21, I could sleep in a hammock in the outdoors  of a hostel in Mexico with …
