We’re walking 25,000+ steps a day here! We. Are. Killing it. (No wonder Parisians are so much fitter than Americans! It’s not the diet–it’s the walking! Hello!) Advertisements
(I know! It’s been ages! Hi!) When I was just a tiny little thing, my 50-year-old grandfather had a massive heart attack, resulting in quadruple bypass surgery that saved his life. He’d been slim my whole life, and had just started running long distances. We were all a bit surprised, but we realized that he … More Why I Went Vegan, and What I Eat
I waited in line for lunch behind six LDS missionaries at Chipotle today. Watching them was the highlight of my day. It’s rare to see six missionaries together: they usually come in twos, or sometimes threes. Once in a while, you’ll see two pairs together, but I’ve never seen six in a pack in the … More For the Soul: Lunchtime Surprise

I was sitting on the sand, ankle in a cast, desperate to finally be … More #scenesfrommyrun: Vacation Edition
It’s beautiful where I live! The weather is finally starting to turn, and the air is just slightly crisp when I go out in the mornings. Isn’t it glorious?
This is the Middle Eastern Roast Chicken from A Beautiful Plate (I super love her), and I’m definitely making it again. It’s easy and totally amazing!
FYI, the Skirt Steak Salad from Smitten Kitchen is perfect, and I wouldn’t change anything. Mmmmm.
I’ve been thinking, this week, about the little things we all do to stay happy and feel balanced. I have a wonderful friend, Trina, who teaches classes about keeping a notebook and journaling (hers is gorgeous)–it’s something that she’s passionate about for a number of reasons, but the one that I love most is that it … More Seven Things I Do To Stay Healthy (that have nothing to do with working out)
