I can say with conviction and 100% absolute certainty that I have never, ever, EVER, been a vacation exerciser. Vacation was a place to vacation — from everything a person needs a vacation from, calorie counting and exercising included. I gained 7 pounds on a cruise once. I didn’t learn … [Read more…]

I feel that way because the first time I ever raced in a triathlon it was so … [Read more…]

I only allow myself to have the “real thing” alfredo sauce quarterly (although lately it’s been maybe twice a year now.) But for every day, I’ve drummed up something that is a very, very close second — minus the guilt. I give you: My Alfredo Sauce. Oh sure the real thing has that smooth … [Read more…]

There is some buzz going around in my neck of the woods and it’s betwixt my runner friends. Ya know, since we’ve been known to share a lot of information with each other.
