Sunrise Track Workout + What Spring Races Should I Do?

Gooooood morning! It’s another really cold one here in DC – in the teens with windchill. But, I’m proud because I dragged myself out of my warm bed and over to the track this morning! This is my “I made it back to the track for the first time in ages!” pose, apparently. :) After the Marine Corps Marathon in late October I was reeeeeally burned Continue Reading …

Back to Work!

Hello my friends! Matt and I are back to work today – sad the holidays are over, but also looking forward to getting back into a routine. :) We got back from the eastern shore on Sunday in the late afternoon; unfortunately by then I had come down with a cold!

Back in the District!

Hey guys! Matt and I are back in DC – but not for long! We’re heading out of town later today for New Years Eve weekend festivities. We got back on Wednesday evening, though, so it’s been nice to have a bit of time to reset and get organized before leaving again. We arrived home on Wednesday around dinnertime, and we knew our fridge was empty, so Continue Reading …

It’s SO GOOD – I think the secret is a slow cooked sauce that starts from whole tomatoes – and there’s also some ground sausage in the sauce. Delicious. They also made a gluten free Continue Reading …
