The Run that Shouldn’t have Been…

May 22, 2014

Over two weeks ago, I ran the Pittsburgh Half Marathon.  It was the fourth time I’ve run the half and the fifth time I’ve been involved in their series of races (2011 26.2).  Each year, I loved it.  Despite three years of rain, a terrible 26.2 experience, and many black toenails.  It’s the city of […]

May 6, 2014

I used to be a peanut butter toast kind of girl.  Only because it was quick and also portable.  During my internship I needed something I could grab and take with me for a one hour commute. But now that I’m in an office and also have a shorter commute, I have the time to […]

Giving Up on Superfoods

April 24, 2014

Kale. Avocadoes. Goji Berries. Chia Seeds Quinoa. These foods are hot trends because at one time someone dubbed them a superfood.  What exactly is a superfood?  Does it impart super human powers?  Give us spidey senses?  Help us fly? Unfortunately there is no medical definition but Google states that a superfood is “a nutrient-rich food […]

We Carry On

April 18, 2014

I can’t help but think “How appropriate that the weekend before the Boston marathon is also Easter weekend “– an entire weekend to reflect on renewal and new life.  Even if you’re not religious, you can see how the season of spring shows us this by allowing our surroundings to slowly renew themselves into bright […]

Feta Asparagus Salad

April 16, 2014

When I think spring produce, I think asparagus. My mom didn’t really make this much when I was a kid, but once we discovered how delicious it is steamed, it became a regular.  Steamed, roasted, sautéed, and grilled.  Doesn’t matter.  Just don’t give it to me canned.  PLEASE. The idea for this salad came when […]

Spring Fitness Favorites

March 31, 2014

At the turn of every season, I’m always looking at fashion.  Not the typical fashion you may think.  Others may be dreaming of days with sandals, maxi dresses, and light weight trench coats.  While I love all of that, I’m usually daydreaming of running shorts, sports sunglasses, and cute yoga tanks.  Warm weather, please stay!
