An already August update

So it’s August already and it always surprises me how quickly this time of the year comes by. When I was younger, I hated it because it meant back to school. Nowadays, I find myself looking forward to the cooler weather, I guess that’s just runner in me. And speaking of running, all of this training has kept me occupied and not around to post blog updates. You’ll laugh but I somehow thought it was a good idea to register for a race nearly every weekend this month. Yup. Big eyes and not well thought out. It’s okay as some of those races will be for fun including my first attempt at a duathlon. Woo-hoo! I think…

I can’t tell you how excited I was to get into the DC Nike Women’s Half! The Nike Half Marathon was a race that I had wanted to run for a while but it was out in San Francisco and I’m not a fan of hills or the cost of traveling to the west coast. So when Nike announced that it was organizing a race in Washington, DC, I figured it was perfect for me.

That was until runDisney announced the Dumbo Double Dare – a 10K race on Saturday followed by a half marathon on Sunday. It’s an inaugural race and with a little bit of peer pressure, I found myself signed up. What else is new?  Continue reading “Maple Bacon Biscuits”

A Birthday and Salty-Sweet Butter Pecan Cookies

I recently saw a quote that said “Sometimes the people who are thousands of miles away from you, can make you feel better than the people right beside you.”. I think that quote describes exactly how I feel about a lot of friends I have in my life. That is to say I miss the ones who don’t live close and have a greater appreciation for the time we spend together. Continue reading “A Birthday and Salty-Sweet Butter Pecan Cookies”

Fudgy Chocolate Chunk Brownies

I try to eat clean 90 percent of the time but every Sunday I have a cheat meal which means I can eat just about anything I want. But I’m not going to scarf Cheetos and Cherry Coke just because they’re available, I want something good! And if I’m going to indulge in something, it has to be worth the calorie count. So last week when I was craving chocolate, I thought, why not make a tray of brownies?  Continue reading “Fudgy Chocolate Chunk Brownies”
