Dam Night Run 5k

This race is ten minutes from my house, so I really have no excuse to not participate.  The course is easy (no hills) and the views are great (we run over the dam that holds Lake DeGray).  The race always draws a crowd and this year was no exception.  There were 716 registered participants (376 […]

Brickfest 5k

So, I ran a 5k.  I know what you are thinking.  My knee has not been hurting for the past two weeks and I needed to feel the excitement again.  I needed to run a race. I was slow, but it was fun.  It was also kind of hot.  Since, I didn’t get to run […]

Healthy “Fried” Bananas

I got this idea from a post on Facebook. Someone out in the blogging world (I can’t remember who) came up with this idea, but I changed the recipe to make it a tad healthier. It is super easy (or I wouldn’t do it) and takes about 10 or so min. Get you a good, […]

My Perfect Summer Salad

I am a huge raw veggie lover and with garden harvest time approaching quickly, here is a quick, yummy way to use some of your produce. Combine all of this in a huge bowl: Lettuce (I use the bagged spring mix, cause I am not very good at growing my own) Sliced Cucumber, Mushrooms, Roma […]

Ouachita Trail 50k

This morning I attempted the Ouachita Trail 50k, and even though it was a lot of fun, it did not go the way I had planned. Lisa talked me into signing up for this race last fall and I instantly fell in love with the idea of becoming an ultra runner.  You all know Lisa, […]

Little Rock Marathon

Well, I ran my first marathon and I really don’t know what to do with myself now. This entire experience reminds me of giving birth to a child. You train and have intermittent periods of discomfort. You begin the race and you are so excited, but in a few hours you are experiencing miserable pain […]

Easy, Healthy Roasted Veggie Side

By no means am I trying to become a food blogger, but I have decided to start sharing some of my easy veggie creations.  My number one goal is to expose my boys to absolutely every vegetable in the produce section and with this dish I succeeded in sneaking in turnips and beets. All you […]

2013 Arkansas Trail Run Series Lake DeGray Trail Run

Well, it wouldn’t be one of my trail races without a foggy picture to start the day. I think Lake DeGray is out there somewhere, but I am not totally sure. We met at the Iron Mountain Trail Head to pick up our packets and chat before taking off. I started talking to the race […]

2013 Arkansas Trail Run Series 2012 Mt. Nebo Bench Trail Run

  After a lovely 4:30am alarm and two and a half hour, curvy, drizzly drive I finally made it to Mt. Nebo. This was my first time to travel up the mountain and the views were just wonderful! Ok, it was a little too foggy to see the river valley below, but the clouds did […]
