It’s time for another What I ate Wednesday with Jen:
I didn’t do a great job of capturing my eats yesterday, but I did enjoy leftover curried squash soup for lunch and red lentil cakes for dinner. (We had our usual oats for breakfast, and a banana-almond-butter- raisin snack).
The red lentil cakes were [...]

1) Running break?
I headed out Saturday morning, aiming for 15-20 miles, and was surprised to find myself feeling really good. Two miles in I rolled my left ankle as I was approaching a traffic light (I can’t even remember what the offending object was–an acorn? branch?). I felt a sharp pain initially, but it [...]

I am really glad to share Nicole’s story today– she is a relatively new runner, and I love how she stumbled upon running, and what keeps her going. Nicole blogs at Running While Mommy, and I’m sure she would love some encouragement on her journey, especially as she’s dealing with some injury setbacks right now.

One of the best things about race expos is all the free goodies and taste tests available! Last weekend in Austin, both my husband and L came along through the Expo, and one of our favorite discoveries was a local Austin company with protein cookies and bars.
There is something about local companies doing [...]

I’m still feeling good after Sunday’s race, and have been able to ease back into my normal routine with a recovery spin on Monday and a easy run yesterday in place of speed work.
I would love some training feedback: I’m debating how to handle this Saturday’s long run, as the following Saturday is a [...]

We’re back! We had a short, full weekend in Austin and really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, it rained most of Saturday which prevented us from checking out a few of the parks we had in mind. Instead, we hit the expo for my packet and free samples, and then checked out a nearby cafe for lunch [...]

We’ll be getting back from Austin this evening, and I’ll have a recap of the weekend up soon. In the meantime, I’m thrilled that Christa offered to share her story as part of the purposeful running series. She’s proven to herself that she’s stronger than she expected, and inspires me to remember that good health [...]

It’s Friday! And my quads are still sore from a class I took Tuesday for Kim’s New 2 U Cross Training Challenge.
Kim’s running the same race, and we’re planning to meet up with some other runners for dinner Saturday evening. She also mapped out the hilly course in her post yesterday, and I’m [...]

Hope you all had a nice Valentine’s day! I enjoyed a lot of “why I love running” posts I saw floating around. I’m linking up again with Jen at WIAW:
We’ve never made a big deal out of Valentine’s day, but it is a little more fun with a toddler in the picture. So we [...]

It’s a rainy day in Texas. Since this is our first “winter” here, I’m loving the mild temperatures, but I’m a little jealous of all the snowy pictures I’ve seen from the weekend up north, and I miss the excitement of a day off! So I’m claiming a snow day in our house, and we’re [...]
