After a failed attempt at this yesterday (I only made it 3.3 miles before having to charge back home. I'll spare the details...), I managed to complete the 10k for Autism (virtual race) today. I opted for the treadmill so that I'd be closer to the bathroom, if needed ;) But all went well, and … Continue reading 10k for Autism
8 Miles – NB Vazee Pace
Well again, I didn't make it 12 miles BUT my blistered toe was fine with just a band-aid over it. The only problem I had today was that I pooped out too early. This happens when I don't slow down enough for my longer runs. 8 miles isn't really a "long" run for me, but … Continue reading 8 Miles – NB Vazee Pace
50-Day Run Streak #writeandrun31
I hit a pretty awesome milestone today - 50 days of running in a row! And in these 50 days (started 11/23/14) I've ran 171 miles. That's 3.42 miles per day on average. I'm pretty sure there were only 1 or 2 days in which I only ran 1 mile (one of those being yesterday, … Continue reading 50-Day Run Streak #writeandrun31
Day 8 #writeandrun31 – My new Garmin came today!
From the 305 (enormous) to the 210 (big), and now the 15 - finally they made one that fits my tiny wrist! And because it also has a step tracker, I'll be able to get rid of my broken Fitbit too ;) Just need to wear it (the Fitbit) one more day to check the accuracy … Continue reading Day 8 #writeandrun31 – My new Garmin came today!
Meatless Monday – Pueblo Pie (Day 4 #writeandrun31)
That Pueblo Pie I made last night... it was DELICIOUS! I thought about waiting until tomorrow to post this, but since I tend to blog later in the evening Meatless Monday will be almost over. So here you go... Pueblo Pie (Tex-Mex Lasagna) -adapted from a Dr. McDougall recipe Ingredients: Sauce: 1.5 cup veggie broth … Continue reading Meatless Monday – Pueblo Pie (Day 4 #writeandrun31)
Oh I almost forgot I have a blog here, sorry ;) Of course I'm still running! I'm currently on Day 19 of the Runner's World Run Streak (#rwrunstreak). It started on Thanksgiving and goes through New Years Day. I'm also redoing the 10k trainer (by Zen Labs) to work on speed, and it's been helping! … Continue reading Checking In!
Meatless Monday – Fiesta Corn (and a C25k update!)
Hope everyone had a nice weekend. I took it easy on Saturday- caught up on my DVR'd shows from the week, and then spent a few hours in the kitchen, making a couple of my regular recipes (Black Bean and Sriracha Pasta, and BBQ Black Bean and Quinoa burgers), and testing out a couple new … Continue reading Meatless Monday – Fiesta Corn (and a C25k update!)
C25k (redo): Week 1 Complete
So after my half marathon last Sunday I decided I was going to revisit the Couch to 5k program to work on speeding up a little bit. I think week 1 was a success!

Meatless Monday: Laura’s Awesome Sauce! And Week 7 HM Training Recap
My awesome sauce is sort of adapted from the Tahini Lime Dressing that I've shared before (which was originally adapted from a recipe from Peas and Thank You). I tweaked it a bit and added some Tex-Mex flair to create this delicious, tangy, put-it-on-everything sauce :) Laura's Awesome Sauce 1/2 cup Tahini 1/4 cup lime … Continue reading Meatless Monday: Laura’s Awesome Sauce! And Week 7 HM Training Recap
