Once upon a time, Dan’s Aunt Brenda gardened some zucchini and went out of town for a few weeks. When she returned, they were absolutely HUGE. At Dan’s family reunion, Aunt Brenda gifted us a zucchini. As I was on crutches at the time, Dan’s father carried it to the car for me. I brought [...]

Shall we jump back to the last week of August and revisit the Disneyland half marathon? I went from being so incredibly excited to go to Disneyland, run the half and 10k, to worrying how I was going to get around on crutches.

First off, exciting news- I finally got professionally fitted for running shoes after being a runner for 2 years. I did go see a podiatrist when I was having Achilles problems and she recommended New Balance shoes for me, but beyond that I’d never had any professional critique. I ended up purchasing TWO sizes bigger [...]

It’s March 20th this evening. Dan and I have officially survived being apart 2 months. Which means I’ve pretty much been in Seattle for 2 months, and things have really come together as I’ve finally settled in.

First off, someone asked what Ostrim jerky was, the jerky I ate during my half marathon last month. It’s really great for fueling as long as you eat it well before exercising! Here’s a shot of the packaging. I buy it at GNC. Jumping backwards by a little over a month, I never told the [...]
