Run All The Races

So many races, so little time…

Run with Me

Fish Taco Craving

I spent a good part of my youth in San Diego, where fish tacos apparently bleed from our veins, but I truly hate fish tacos.

Love is in the Air

Last week, Artboy and I ventured out for our Anniversary and an early Valentine’s dinner at local favorite El Gaucho.

Especially considering my current health! I figured I’d share a bit of the love we received from one of our favorite PNW restaurants.

The Ultimate Buzzkill

I waited to share this story until I was sure no one was reading…so two weeks ago, I went out for an easy Monday afternoon run. I believe I was running four miles at a 1/2 mile run, 1/4 mile walk intervals. I was about a mile in, about half way though my second 1/2 mile interval when a bee attacked.
