"I see you running everywhere!"
Today it happened again. I was on the trail with Boo and had stopped to clean up his waste and a gentleman I have passed many times on this very trail came running by and stopped. He said, “Hi, I see you running EVERYWHERE.” I chuckled, a bit embarrassed, and said, “Yes, I love to run and I run a lot.” We then chatted for a few minutes, him asking me how many miles I run...
Power! Power! Power! (meter, that is)
Today as I rode my bike for a recovery ride I thought about how much riding with power has changed my strength. I got my power meter back in January. While I was happy to finally find one, I really didn’t do much with it or understand it very well until very recently. It was attached to my bike, and collecting data. And while I had a basic idea of what an “easy” ride was...

If you haven’t rolled sushi before it can be a bit...
Gluten Free Vegan Pancakes
Our kids especially LOVE pancakes. So naturally when we decided to go gluten free this was a concern- how will we make GOOD tasting pancakes? Eric came across a great recipe that worked really well. We have used it many times with great success. I loved the recipe but I always am trying to find a way to make things as healthy as possible so I began tinkering with it. I started with adding protein...
Healthy and Filling Burritos For A Family
Between different training schedules and two silly kids with different taste buds Eric and I have found it very convenient to have “burrito night” often at our house. I have so many renditions of this that I do it’s hard to list all of them. I’m going to do my best at showing a wide variety of choices here but feel free to change it up-that’s the beauty of this meal....
Shepeards Pie with Gluten Free Options
