I stumbled upon the Run Like a Diva half marathon race today in San Francisco and the whole time people were confused if I was part of the race or not. Since I was separated from the pack, people looked at me pondering if I was the first…or just the last runner lol! One of the photographers was going crazy when I ran by because he thought I was the leader HA yeah right not at my long-run slow pace and not-so-hardcore looking running clothes. Volunteers asked me if I was a “diva” and I was like…Noo.. Looks like a fun race though!

No beer for me on St. Patty’s Day…just some ginger green tea (and an art project to finish). If you ever have a stomache ache, ginger helps a lot! I.e some of this tea or those ginger slices served with sushi does the trick. 

 I’m not a big drinker…probably only drank 5 times in 2011. My singing instructor mentioned that its detrimental for your vocal cords. Some opera singers take a shot before their performance to calm their nerves, but alcohol is a muscle relaxer and makes it harder to engage your back muscles when you need to use your head voice and to maintain your singer’s expansion.
