I have always wanted to climb Half Dome in Yosemite National Park. It is an over 16 mile hike (round trip) up the the top of a granite mountain. It is very steep, strenuous and potentially dangerous. You gain almost 1 mile in elevation (4,800 feet) on the way up. The last leg of the trip, to get to ... Read More about Half Dome!!!

Matt brought home this book today from a used book sale: Good for You Cookies by Jane Marsh Dieckmann. There was one "No-bake Cookie" recipe in the book that seemed super easy so we decided to see what we had in the cupboards and create our own no-bake cookies. This is what we came up with: Matt ...

Lunch was nothing exciting, but I loved it - PB&J, a peach and carrots. I was still a little hungry so I had a piece of bread with more PB&J. Then, I started stealing food. Okay, not really stealing, but my friend offered me some of her fries and I couldn't say no to thick diner fries! I am ... Read More about Food Stealer
After a bad 6 miles this morning I was running super late. I normally make breakfast at home and eat it on the way to work when I'm late (which is always). But, I didn't even have time for that today, so I grabbed a plum from my bag and ate it while driving. When I got to work I made oat bran with 1 ... Read More about Yo quiero breakfast!

This morning I tried Kraft Bagel-fuls Whole Grain. I heard about these when they first came out and was really curious to give them a whirl. I normally try to stay away from super processed foods like this, but I figured one package wouldn't kill me. I love bagels and cream cheese, but normally stay ... Read More about Bagel-fuls!
I started today with a couple of miles and a few strides thrown in for fun. Then, a walk with the perros :)I totally forgot until yesterday that I bought Bagel-fuls a while back. I purchased them a few weeks ago and at the time I was super excited to try them. Finally this morning I made one to go ... Read More about Happy Tuesday :)

It's Friday! Hope everyone is having a good day. I started the morning with an 11 miler. I need to start building up mileage, but it's hard for me to do more than 11. I think physically I can do it, but mentally I am bored at that point and just DONE.Breakfast was a mix of cereals with nf milk and a ... Read More about Happy Friday
Tonight for dinner I had Amy's Tortilla Casserole & Black Beans Here's how it looked after being micro-ed. It doesn't look as good at the pic on the box, but it was very tasty! I really enjoyed digging into the layers of tortilla and cheese. I did top it with a little hot sauce though :) I ... Read More about Amy's for Dinner!
I thought I might be doing a long run tomorrow so I just took a long walk this morning. I was switching it up because we were going to go to Yosemite for the weekend and I needed to get in a long run before we went on Friday morning. Well, it turns out Yosemite is burning down and with the air ... Read More about Today I love … smiley faces ;)

These bagels are so good - They are from Western Bagel and they're called Perfect 10. They have 140 calories and 9grams of fiber and 18g ... Read More about Wednesday Recap
I don't own a running skirt. I have always thought they would be uncomfortable, "ride up" or emphasize how manly I look while running. I thought people would say, "Why is that sweaty guy wearing a skirt?" But, I really like wearing skirts and dresses in my daily life. On mornings when I am going to ...
