Lazy (Wo)Man’s Salsa Chicken

Hi friends! What’s shakin’? It’s beautiful here in DC today – we seem to have gone back to spring after yesterday’s crazy heat! Whew. I slogged through a track workout yesterday morning and man, the humidity definitely made it tougher than usual. Yesterday’s workout was a pyramid workout – we started with a 400 (one lap around the track), Continue Reading …

How to Get Over Jet Lag Quickly

Hey friends! I’m officially back in DC after a whirlwind long weekend out west! (If you missed my recap, check it out: Colorado Springs Adventures.) I didn’t sleep amazingly well last night due to jetlag, but I figured the best way to get back on east coast time quickly was to get up and out for an early morning workout. Urban Athletic Club it Continue Reading …

Just in time for weekend brunch, I’d like to introduce my latest Almond Breeze partnership recipe creation to you guys: a bright and savory Crustless Quiche with Spring Vegetables.

Spring Makes Everything Happier

Every winter, I slog through cold, dark, and dreary runs, wondering if maybe I don’t actually love running as much as I thought I did.

Poached Eggs FTW + Other Tastiness

Hi friends! While in Canada last week, I rekindled my love affair with poached eggs. I’m normally a fried egg (runny yolk) sort of girl, mostly because they are easy to make and I was scared to try poached eggs at home. But last week I was on a big poached egg kick – I ordered a couple almost every day at breakfast. So, this week I decided I had Continue Reading …

Back to the Track + Recent Eats

Hi friends! Guess what? I FINALLY made it back to the track this morning! Between all the travel I’ve been doing and all the snow/ice we had over the past month and a half, I hadn’t been to the track for my Potomac River Runners group in wayyyyyy too long. I skipped last Thursday and this Tuesday because of the Rock ‘n’ Roll DC half marathon, but Continue Reading …

Spring Running FTW + Gearing up for RnR DC

YOU GUYS! I had the best morning. I got in a beautiful sunrise run in DC and there was no snow or ice anywhere to be seen! WOOHOO!!!! Spring, is that you?! Please?! My buddy Sokphal and I hadn’t run together in WAYYYYY too long – our schedules haven’t been working out, and then it’s been too icy/snowy to run most mornings recently anyway. So Continue Reading …
