Join the Journey

From the Sammamish trail to a table a Noma, you’ll find me running, eating, and enjoying life.

The things I'll do for food

I “Run All the Races” so I can “Eat All the Food” and “Drink All the Drinks”

Where in the world is...

Traveling one perfect meal, band, or race at a time.

2016 Epcot Food & Wine Plans

Not one to be thwarted by waking up at 2 am or running 13.1 (plus another 6.2) miles, I will not let a little thing like runDisney moving my favorite race to the morning (making it no longer my favorite race) ruin my Food & Wine plans.

Summertime Rolls

So what’s happened in the last million days? I’ve been to Disney for Star Wars races, Coachella Music Festival, Maui, San Diego, Disneyland for Tink, Walla Walla, Disney World for my birthday, Miami, Puerto Rico, Vancouver,Portland, Leavenworth, and some places I’m certainly forgetting and not in that order. Now I’m home with my pugs and will be catching up on some oversharing.
