Hi ya'll, sorry I haven't written in the last week. I've been a bit uninspired and bummed....I'm no longer training for the Outer Banks Marathon in November and am having to limit running to about 10 miles per week. I won't bore you with the details, but it's per doctor's orders for now. So what the heck is this running-addicted gal supposed to do??? Without a training plan on the fridge, I feel lost. I'm going to create my own plan each week full of various workouts like shorter runs, dog walks, strength training, gym classes, biking, etc. In a way I'm looking forward to the variety, and I know that marathons will always be there when I'm all healed and ready to get back to distance running. I've been in a bit of a funk for the last week dealing with this change, but now I feel better about it and ready to move forward with other types of workouts. I swear, exercise keeps me sane!
I'm also starting another blog about my attempt, at least for September, to cook more at home and eat out less. I thought about just combining it with this blog, but I'm guessing a lot of the posts will be short and not all that interesting, so I decided to just create a new one for this project. I'm not a huge fan of blogs that are nothing but pics of food (after awhile all bowls of oatmeal start to look the same), so I hope to post lots of recipes, only post pics of things that seem unique (or that turn out to be a huge mess:)) and just in general document our household challenge of eating home more often. If you want to check it out, here's the address:
