Breathing While I Run … Mouth or Nose

Lately I have been much more focused on my running and breathing, more so than before.  Maybe because I am taking my running more seriously, I am really enjoying it and I want to make sure I have the right technique down.  After reading and researching, I realized that this topic is huge.  There is so much information out there on the right breathing, how to do it, the timing of it, the mouth or nose and so on.   I assumed I had it all "figured out" until I got deep into it.  Is it not hard Continue Reading...

When A Training Run Turns Into A Walk

2015-04-14 10.16.13

*Note* The winner of the Ultimate Runner's Giveaway has been chosen and is announced at the end of this post. We have all been there, we have all had them.  You know what they are, the days that we head out to train for an up-coming run and end up just not getting it done.  Instead of just throwing in the towel when a bad "running" day hits, we can just walk it out or like Taylor Swift sings "shake it off".  This is exactly what I did while out on my latest run.  I had every intention of Continue Reading...

Easter Recap in Wine Country

Easter 010

Easter was this past weekend and we finally had some rain here in Northern California.  I know most of us tend to want a warm sunny day for the egg hunt, but I have to say that being outdoors with rain boots on and racing to find eggs while dodging raindrops was rather fun.   To recap the day ... I set my alarm the night before to make sure I would rise up for an early morning Easter run.  I just really wanted to be out that morning and embrace the peacefulness and reflect on things. I was Continue Reading...

I know it's Wednesday and this post could have been done a few days ago, however like the saying goes ...

Baked Spring Rolls

029

It has been far too long since I have spent some time creating something in the kitchen to share here with you.  The last few weeks I have been on a HUGE veggie diet eating binge, I just can't get enough of them lately.  The latest craving as of current is the bean sprout.  I love them.  I was in the market with the hubby last week and a bam out of no where, I shouted across the produce aisle "spring rolls"!  "I want some veggie spring rolls, let's make them". As usual, he shook his head and Continue Reading...

Birthday Party Vision Boards

Freshman Baseball 2015 018

This past weekend had us spending the entire two days outdoors and in my opinion went by too quickly.  I could not be more blessed and happy to be living in the wine country.  The weather here is pretty much always amazing and well, to be honest {although we are in dire need of more rain}, I am glad to not be living amongst the frozen states across the map {my heart goes out to all of you who are tired of all the snow and cold}. Our daughter turned 13 last week and I am always up for doing Continue Reading...
