I cried over a flat tire…

I cried over a flat tire…

Yup, you read that correctly, I had horrible, messy tears streaming down my face because of a flat tire! Not sure when the screw decided to connect with the tire, but… When I came home from running an errand in the middle of the day yesterday, I felt the rim of my left rear tire… Continue Reading

Sometimes I thought it was in my head

Three years ago, I ran the Seattle Rock & Roll Half Marathon in 2:07:08 and was completely stoked! It was an amazing accomplishment and something that I didn’t know I wanted to do until I decided to do it. When I registered for that event, I committed to the training and the process. I started… Continue Reading

Carrot Ring Recipe

Carrot Ring Recipe

OK, this is my first (and potentially only) recipe post — I’m not much of an innovator in the kitchen, but anyway… Every year for Thanksgiving I make my version of a family recipe for “Carrot Ring” Carrot ring is pretty much a quick bread, like zucchini bread made in the top of a bundt… Continue Reading

We anticipated a nice week ahead and took advantage of it, so that we could walk each day! Here’s the… Continue Reading

I cried over a flat tire…
Yup, you read that correctly, I had horrible, messy tears streaming down my face because of a flat tire! Not sure when the screw decided to connect with the tire, but... When I came home from running an errand in the middle of the day yesterday, I felt the rim of my left rear tire bounce. Ugh, flat... glad I was home and could call roadside assistance from the house and *stay productive* -- or not! When the spare was put on the roadside assistant guy gave me bad news -- the screw in my tire was in a place [more]
Sometimes I thought it was in my head
Three years ago, I ran the Seattle Rock & Roll Half Marathon in 2:07:08 and was completely stoked! It was an amazing accomplishment and something that I didn't know I wanted to do until I decided to do it. When I registered for that event, I committed to the training and the process. I started training during the winter snow and fell in love with running. I had also decided that instead of running one half-marathon that summer, I would run two. I figured that it was only another 6 weeks of training and it would be incredible to be [more]
Carrot Ring Recipe
OK, this is my first (and potentially only) recipe post -- I'm not much of an innovator in the kitchen, but anyway... Every year for Thanksgiving I make my version of a family recipe for "Carrot Ring" Carrot ring is pretty much a quick bread, like zucchini bread made in the top of a bundt cake pan (hence the "ring".) It's sweet and a great compliment to the other foods on the Thanksgiving menu. Here are the ingredients: 2 3/4 cups all purpose flour (I use unbleached organic) 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup raisins 3 cups grated carrots (I [more]

Vacation Time Workout Recap!
Last week, I didn't manage to post my workout log... the wifi was terrible at our hotel in Whistler, but I managed to post this video of myself on the trapeze! http://youtu.be/qsgUBG1SSVE So, as far as my workouts went... Monday August 11, I went for a nice walk with my mom and then we took my daughters and one of my nephews swimming after their summer camp was over. As it turned out, it was the nicest day of the week and a perfect choice for going swimming! Tuesday August 12: P90X3 Yoga. This workout is fairly [more]
