November 3rd, 2010: Nagging injuries and a long, tough hike the week before had us wondering if we’d actually be able to complete the hike but somehow we made it. Definitely our hardest hike due to the elevation gain — summit at over 10,000 feet! Had a nice break at the top and in great spirits on the [...]
February 8th, 2010: I absolutely love my new cookbook: Vegan Yum Yum: Decadent (But Doable) Animal-Free Recipes for Entertaining and Everyday. If you are a vegan or just want to cook with fewer animal products check this book out. For your first recipe try Hurry Up Alfredo. Super fast and easy – and of course, yum yum! @veganyumyum
March 15th, 2009: Yesterday was my first ever racing event! Phil and I ran in the St. Patrick’s Day 10K in Mission Bay. Even with tendinitis in my ankle I managed to get a very respectable time (for me). My time was 1:08:32 and placed 1672 out of 1909. Looking forward to our next event!
March 3rd, 2009: Planning on running a 10K on the 14th which is only about… 10 days away! Yikes! I was steadily improving over the last few months until I had to rest for an injury and then caught a cold. Still haven’t felt back to where I was even though I recovered from both about 2 weeks [...]
February 28th, 2009: For my 30th birthday Phil and I traveled up to Julian and stayed at a wonderful B&B Butterfield Inn. We hiked during the day and caught up on Lost at night. The two hikes we made were both in the Cuyamaca Rancho State Park. There was actually quite a bit of snow which we didn’t [...]
November 23rd, 2008: The weather finally cooled off a bit (hopefully for a while) so Phil and I headed out to Poway yesterday to check out the Iron Mountain hike. It is mostly uphill/switchbacks but wasn’t too crazy. The hike up wasn’t too hard because of all the switchbacks and the trip back down was a great way [...]
November 9th, 2008: We finally made it up to Mount Laguna yesterday to hike Garnet Peak. It was perfect weather and we made the hike in about 2 hours. Before heading home we stopped in Julian for dinner and picked up an apple pie – yum! Some info about Garnet Peak: Located at the Northern end of the [...]
October 22nd, 2008: Tested out my Nike+ setup for the first time today. It’s really great – kind of like having your own personal trainer who also saves all your workout information automatically. iTunes also sells albums where your “trainer” leads you through different running workouts to music. Looks like fun! Anyway below is the neat widget that [...]
