As you may have guessed by my lack of posting (or heard, perhaps), my much-anticipated Million Dollar Marathon leg didn't quite go as planned. Buckle in—this might be a long one! After a very sweaty hot yoga bootcamp class, I attended a super-inspiring event as the marathon crew rolled into town last Tuesday. I met up with my teammate and new pal, Ashley, and we cheered as three women carried the baton into a big celebration ...continue reading

Whole-Wheat Peanut, Berry and Banana Bread

Bread

If given the choice, would you pack a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or peanut butter and banana sandwich? Why pick just one? My latest kitchen experiment, inspired by the ingenious Gina of SkinnyTaste, combines all of these flavors into one tasty bite. You don't even need two slices of bread for this one. But I wouldn't blame you one bit if you cut two pieces (or maybe three) for a twist on traditional dessert! Or how ...continue reading

Sunday Morning Special: Dinner, Dessert and a Tank Top Workout

We're finally, frighteningly, approaching the "destination" of my wild Million Dollar Marathon journey—just seven days now! My training has been limited due to some nagging injuries, so thank goodness I'm able to split up the 26.2 into two or three different outings over the course of the day. My three key goals for the week: water, sleep and trying not to stress. :) I'll be back a little later this week with my latest kitchen ...continue reading

Summer Squash Pasta Toss

When I was growing up, my favorite restaurant order was chicken nuggets and fries. Brown and brown, with a side of red (ketchup). True story: I'd eat this nearly every day. Thankfully, my tastes have expanded a bit as I've grown. This is especially good news now during the summer since I live very close to one unbelievable farmers market. I took full advantage of that fact this weekend and was inspired by all the bright colors to ...continue reading

For the first part of this week, I was a New Yorker once again. True, NYC never felt like "home" to me, even when I lived there. But with so much to see and do, plus so many friends to reconnect with, it sure is one fun place to visit! Today's link round-up is inspired by my adventures during this particular excursion. Even if you can't make the trip, you can experience a taste of the Big Apple! Green juices are trendy across the ...continue reading

Mizuno Wave Sayonara Review

DSC_0024

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Mizuno. As you can see, I'm a bit of a Mizuno fan. From the Wave Rider 15s to the Wave Inspire 9s, their sneakers have seen me through both of my half-marathons and one of my relay races, and the training for each, without a single lost toenail. I call that a running miracle! When I got the opportunity to try the brand's new Wave Sayonara sneaks right before they ...continue reading
