Happy Spring!

The birds are chirping, trees are starting to grow again, and I'm ready for the sun already. Hurry up Summer! Until then, more baking!

Aloha from Hawaii

I'm originally from Kailua, Hawaii. While I keep moving to rainy cities like Seattle, Manchester, Liverpool and Dublin, I always look forward to trips back home to see family and friends when I can. Take a look at the live Waikiki beach to see where you could be. Technology doesn't always conquer homesickness, but it helps.

Seattle Half Marathon December 1, 2013

When I'm not at work or baking, you'll find me running along the Seattle Waterfront getting ready for the next race. Right now I'm training to beat my previous half marathon time, and get as close to 2:00:00 as I possibly can. Next year I'm hoping to run the Dublin Marathon again - best race I've ever been a part of!
