    Superfoods–Naturally Gluten-Free

    This is going to be a combination running and gluten-free post.  This is now my 2nd season with MIT (Marathoners in Training) and I really can’t say enough good things about it.  If you don’t live here in the Columbus area, I only hope that you have access to a wonderful training program such as [...]

    Dear Trader Joe’s…

    Dear Trader Joe’s,

    I have a problem.  I can’t stay out of your store and when you keep making new, amazing gluten-free products, I have an even harder time.  If my current list of “must haves” isn’t enough, I now have to include the following on that list:

    You sure know the [...]

    An Adoption of Sorts

    No, we didn’t adopt a child, but I did adopt a blogger recipe of sorts.  I’ll get to that in a minute.  I read blogs in my “spare” time.  I don’t have a lot of that so-called, ever-coveted, spare time, but when I have a few minutes here & there, I read blogs. I use [...]

    Review: SPIbelt & 5K Recap

    Before I ran my first marathon in Cleveland last May (2010), I purchased a SPIbelt to carry some essentials when I ran. I had previously used another belt, made by Amphipod, I think, and it hit me in the wrong spot on the waist & caused a nice abrasion after my first half marathon. Before [...]

    Review: Al Fresco Chicken Sausage

    When I was sent some samples of Al Fresco Chicken Sausage,  I was very excited.  I am not a huge fan of hot dogs,  but these really appeal to me.  I have seen these many times in the store,  but never picked them up before.  A little more about Al Fresco:

    al fresco. It’s all [...]

    Fourth of July Menu Plan & Numbers

    Quickly, before I get to the menu plan for the week, I have to share some interesting facts.

    First, this post on running clothes, was my 900th blog post! I can’t believe I have written that much here! It has been almost 3 years, so I guess that is about right – roughly 300 posts/year.


    Summer Veggies–‘Tis the Season

    Not too long ago I took advantage of a Groupon for Rock Dove Farm – I paid $9 for $25 worth of vegetables!  Technically,  I paid nothing because I had a credit on Groupon for referring friends – SCORE!  Nothing tastes better than free,  local summer vegetables,  except maybe those grown in your own garden.  [...]

    Old Navy Running Clothes

    Okay, maybe I am behind the times here, but I had no idea that Old Navy had decent running clothes. Here I am paying lots of money for running shorts & skirts and I just picked up the most comfortable pair of running shorts at Old Navy today for $10! The shorts normally retail for [...]

    Review: New Planet Beer

    When I was asked if I wanted to sample New Planet Beer, I jumped at the chance. I miss my Amstel Light from my pre-gluten-free days, so I enjoy tasting new varieties of gluten-free beer. Previously I have tried New Grist, Red Bridge and Bard’s Tale gluten-free beers.

    New Planet has 3 different varieties [...]
