Week 18: Working Through the Pains… and the Leftovers… This week was a recovery week for us…recovery in a couple of ways. Recovering from the Thanksgiving Holiday (plus all of those leftovers, my vegan platter shown above) and allowing our bodies recover from 16+ miles of running over the course of 3 days! Luckily as the week has progressed, we’ve ...

Plus a Care-Free Lentil Curry Recipe! This past week seemed to pass very quickly. We kept ourselves very busy with work and holiday activities, and also managed to get some running in too!

Well, today was a reason to celebrate…it’s National Sticky Bun Day (2/20/10)! I woke up early this morning, 6:30am to be exact, to surprise my husband with ...

A Near-Perfect Post-Saturday Run Snack! offee cake…it was always a treat in our household. My Mom only made it on special occasions, but when she did, it seemed like it was always gone in a flash! Over the past few months, every now and again I’d all of a sudden crave coffee cake. Fortunately, it takes time to bake, so ...
