Throughout my journey following a plant-based diet, I have come to discover and fall in love with many different kinds of fruits and vegetables that I had never even seen before...
The other day I found myself looking at the past, thinking about how much everything has changed…how much I’ve changed...
Last week I had the honor of attending a dinner with my Guerlain team here in Guatemala and Eduardo Jimenez, one of Guerlain’s International Makeup Artists who was in town for a few days...
Geez, I am doing an awful job at keeping you guys updated on my training! Has it really been three weeks since my last marathon post? Where has time gone?

It seems that the older I get, the more I fall in love with a relaxed, less complicated, casual and comfortable style. Soft T-shirts, distressed denim, vintage pieces, boho flats and sandals, and natural hair and makeup are just a few of my new favorite things. (I can’t tell you the last time I wore eye-shadow or eyeliner. I’m more of a lipstick kind-of-girl.)
I never told you girls, but when I decided to change my diet and become vegan there was one thing that was a total nightmare to deal with: my skin. After I gave up all animal-derived foods (especially dairy) I started breaking out like never before, in an uncontrollable, kind of embarrassing way. It was so bad that I even considered Accutane. I felt frustrated, annoyed and worried that I was perhaps doing something wrong…I mean, where was the “vegan glow” everyone talks about?
Sorry for the disappearance last week. This whole marathon training thing is really taking a physical toll on me—more so this time because the number of miles we’re logging (and our speed) have increased by quite a lot. (My calves are on fire. I’m that sore!)**
Finding a restaurant that serves a decent brunch on a Sunday here in Guatemala can be a real struggle. For some reason, brunch wasn’t such a popular thing here until recently, so I guess most restaurants are still trying to figure out whether or not it’s something they should consider serving.
It’s hard to believe that the marathon is only 7 weeks away! This is when you start the “marathon preparation” and the training gets harder. Intervals and speed training will get more and more frequent, and the distances will get longer and longer.
The next couple of weeks are, for me, the hardest emotionally. This is when I start to wonder why in the world I signed up in the first place—when I just can’t wait for it all to be over. Doubts and thoughts of giving-up will cross my mind often. And I’ll be counting down the days until the taper weeks arrive.
