Forever Adventuring

When I was in San Diego last week, I had the most amazing short ribs at the restaurant, Urban Bar and Grill. I’m not usually a big short rib type person, but these looked great and I was not disappointed. They fell right off the bone and were covered in the most delicious sauce. Ever since I had those short ribs, I have been thinking about how to recreate the recipe at… Read More

No matter how much you prepare for a long run, or any length run for that matter, there are things that will inevitably happen that can throw you off course. Yesterday I set out for my Sunday “long” run (it was only 7 miles, but good for me in my current state of fitness) and there were so many times where I just wanted to throw in the towel and walk back… Read More

It’s the weekend! …and my first day off in 12 very long days. As mentioned in my last post, this past weekend I was in San Diego for an annual industry meeting. It was a great meeting and it is always good spending time with coworkers that I don’t see on a regular basis. But let’s be honest, it’s nice to be home and relaxing for the first time in two weeks. The best… Read More

Well, that recipe name isn’t a mouthful or anything… Do you eat bison on a regular basis? If not, you should. It is one of my favorite proteins.  Not only is it usually organic and grass-fed/grass finished, but it tastes amazing. The flavor profile is slightly gamey-ier than ground beef, but it almost has a subtle sweetness to it, which makes is great for burgers, chili, and bolognese. The nutritional profile is pretty… Read More

Another week is in the works and what could make it better than some good ol’ comfort food? Growing up, do you remember eating those delicious single-serving chicken pot pies from the freezer section? I sure do, and they were amazing. On the special occasion that my dad, aka “Mr. Mom,” was feeling fancy, he would make up chicken pot pies from scratch and those were even more amazing. I always felt… Read More

This past week was definitely a challenging one for me. There was a lot going on at work and a ton of school work to be done before I leave for San Diego next week. There were so many days where I just felt like throwing in the towel and saying “nope, not going to run today.” I’m proud to say that even though I thought that way constantly throughout the week,… Read More

Growing up as a runner in high school, I always followed the philosophy that runners should eat lots of carbs. Pasta, bread, rice, pizza, you name it, I ate it. At that point in my life, I didn’t worry about gaining weight or my metabolism, so nothing was off limits. However, I’ve learned that as I grow older, I can’t pull off the same stuff that I did in high school. Not only… Read More

I hope you all had a great Easter weekend! It didn’t snow all winter here in Tahoe and then it was a blizzard yesterday. Go figure. Oh well. We’ll take whatever we can get in the form of liquid falling from the sky these days. With it snowing yesterday, I opted to forego my 6 mile run and reschedule it for this week. I am sooooo over my treadmill and the thought of… Read More

Why do you run? If you are like most runners, you have more than one reason. It might be to relieve stress, accomplish a goal, improve your health, lose weight, etc. All of these are absolutely wonderful reasons to run, but one of the reasons at the top of my list, is to get outside and enjoy my surroundings. Although I wish that the running trails were still covered with five feet… Read More
