    Great Belmont Trail Run – Leave Your Glutes at the Bottom

    Oh lordy, if there’s ever a great trail run that will make you feel like David Gest after Liza Minelli had a few cocktails, Waterdog Park in Belmont is it.  It’s a woodsy, canyon trail, with canopies of live oak, eucalyptus, and all other kinds of native California foliage. Apparently too, it was part of […]

    Great Trail Running

    Though I’m no speedster when it comes to running, I’m a sucker for human endurance, and the affiliate pain and suffering that comes with it. I had the pleasure of running the Pacifica Trail Run at San Pedro Valley Park this past weekend. While the race boasted a 9K, 21K, 30K, and 50K courses, I […]

I again thank everyone who has supported me these past few […]

    I’m In! New York Marathon, Here I Come

    I tend to run about one marathon every year. Last year it was the Napa Marathon (which, incidentally, I PR’d at with a whopping 4:14 time). And while most of the time I do it with Team in Training, this year presented a new opportunity for me. This year, I’m running a marathon (and fundraising) […]

    Timing is everything…

    In Bay Area real estate, for both buyers and sellers, there is nothing more critical than timing. Getting an offer in before someone outbids you. Putting your house on the market when the market’s in an upswing.  Getting a loan locked in before mortgage rates creep higher. That’s always been my mantra in real estate, […]

    199 miles, 36 legs, 24 feet

    Yes, call me crazy. but I’ve done it again. Known as the "longest foot race in California", I just completed "The Relay", a 12-person (=24 feet) team effort, 3 legs per person (=36 legs), from Calistoga to Santa Cruz (=199 miles).  It’s my third time doing it…and sleep deprivation be damned, it’s still one of […]
