New Adventures : Wilderness Garden Park

There is something to be said for December afternoons. The air feels clear and fresh and the sunsets are the most beautiful thing you have ever seen. Although I didn’t hang out long enough for the sunset I still was able to enjoy the…

A Smell Unlike Any Other

I woke up late. My coffee didn’t automatically brew. I couldn’t find my shoes. I couldn’t find my pack. I was losing hope, desire and interest. I continued on and as the sun beat through my car windows and the sound of reggae filled…

Trail Challenge Series : Englemann Oak Loop

I have had this hiking book called Afoot and Afield; San Diego County for a few years now. This has book has been dubbed “the bible of San Diego hiking” and rightfully so. It is jam-packed with trails all over the county, including maps,…

Happy ( Running) New Year!

What a great new start for the year!  I haven’t run consistently for over a year, and although it has only been a week, I don’t feel that it’s just me being trendy. I did run 20 miles in the last week, so I…

It is my last week of spring semester, my finals are a week from today. I have papers to write, research to conduct, studying to do, and I can’t hold a pen. For the past 6-8 months or so I have been suffering from…

I Run For Me

My Love of a Challenge

This time of the year, I am totally happy with hibernating. I definitely am not a fan of being cold, and no matter how many layers I put on, I can never seem to be “warm”.  The thought of stepping outside in 50 degree weather…

Welcome to November

The first day of November, and I’m lucky to be outside running at 4 in the afternoon with my best friend, my pup Rosco, and it’s eighty-five degrees outside. Eighty-five freakin degrees outside! Man am I lucky. I took today’s run opportunity to wear…

Pro Compression Sock Review

I’m sure by now you have seen runners running through your neighborhood or local race with bright and colorful knee-high socks on. If your like some of the people whom I know, you may think that its simply a fashion statement, and not a very…

Happy One Year !

Today marks the one year anniversary of Chronicles of Kate! I remember one year ago, sitting down to get this thing started and thinking to myself, “what the heck am I going to write?” I really wanted to document my life in terms of running…
