Recently I got my first Tri Box from RunnerBox. I’d read about this company on a few blogs recently and even gave one to a friend for her birthday, so I decided it was time to try it out for myself! This is a very cool concept for people like me who are [...]
After a week of being really sick with a stomach virus, I’m finally back! Back to life, back to blogging, back to work, and hopefully back to running tomorrow. But today, I want to take a minute to talk about my mom. My mom is not a runner, and I’m pretty sure she thinks [...]
This was a great weekend!
First, the Tower Grove Farmer’s market opened this weekend. Visiting this market to stock up on veggies & meats for the week is my favorite spring/summer Saturday morning ritual. Here’s the salad I made last night with all the fresh veggies I bought along with some fabulous citrus and fennel [...]

The perfect weeknight meal. It’s pretty light, so I’d recommend also making a side of some sort. We [...]
Whether you’re a runner or a walker get out there today and join Run Junkees and runners all over the country in honoring the marathoners and spectators impacted by yesterday’s horrific events in Boston. This a virtual run: run any distance or time that you choose.
The bombings yesterday overshadow [...]
Summer is approaching, and that means pool season and triathlon season! I’m not sure yet whether I’ll be doing any triathlons this summer (my training plan for the Chicago marathon will keep me pretty busy) but regardless I’m sure I’ll be hitting the outdoor pool a few days a week to put in some laps. [...]
