Comeback Kid

It’s marginally embarrassing how long it’s been since I’ve last written a blog post. I use the term “marginally” very loosely, for there are wide margins (eg: the Yankees defeated the Angels by a gaping margin of 14–7 last week) and narrow margins (eg: please set the margins of your

BLACK ROSES NYC

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you know I’ve been running. A lot. It started as a simpler 9-miler after I finished the “Insanity” program just to prove to myself that I could do it. And somehow progressed into a half-marathon through Central Park, down the Westside Highway

“Parallel Lives” by James Jean

Let me preface this post by saying that I’m not an art critic or connoisseur or snob or collector by any means. I get invited to the occasional art show, my creative friends are all pretty amazing in their respective fields and sometimes, I grow super passionate about the work

NAPA, CA

Immediately following the U.S. Grand Prix, I headed west to Northern California for some much needed R&R. Mama Shen’s birthday aside, the last time I requested two days off was back in May for a friend’s wedding in Cabo, so a “vacation” has been long overdue. Unfortunately the weather god’s

Thank goodness for

Nike & Never Not Running

Nike hosted the 8th annual Nike Women’s Marathon in San Francisco two weekends ago, where over 25,000 women conquered the hills to commemorate the 28th anniversary of Joan Benoit Samuelson’s historic gold-medal in the first women’s marathon at the 1984 Games in Los Angeles.

AND WHY SEE…?

This used to be a frequent sight as I’d drive into Manhattan fresh off a red-eye flight from Los Angeles. Now, New York is the city I call home, and Los Angeles is a not-so-distant memory that forever tugs at my heartstrings. A year in, and it’s finally starting to
