This week’s challenge is to de-clutter your wardrobe!

We've talked before about having too much stuff - Clutter can be draining and de-energizing. By getting more organized, you simplify and live a more meaningful life. I don't know about you, but when I'm surrounded by crap, I feel like crap and can't live my best life.

Annual Run Rocklin Adds Half-Marathon And New Fund-Raising Opportunities

The 11th annual Run Rocklin will be held Sunday, April 6 at Johnson-Springview Park in Rocklin. This year a half-marathon (13.1 miles) will be included, which is a popular distance for many running enthusiasts.

Unlike other half-marathons in the Sacramento region, Run Rocklin offers more rolling hills and challenging terrain. The race starts and ends at Johnson Springview Park, 5480 5th St., Rocklin, CA 95677

“The half-marathon is a very popular, sought-after distance. It’s what a lot of runners are doing locally,” Race Director Larry Osborne said.  Our half-marathon offers a unique combination of a gentle start, up-and-down terrain, rolling hills and a flat fast finish. People have been asking us to add a half-marathon for years. It’s a good time to expand Run Rocklin.”
