After reading blogs for many years and with some gentle encouragement from my sister, Sugar Bear, I have decided it is time to start a blog all my own. I'd like my blog to focus on my two biggest hobbies of running and cooking. I've met some interesting people and made some great friends through my running experiences through the years. These people have taught me that every runner has a unique bag of tricks that powers them through their "I've never felt so amazing" runs and their "My legs are burning and my lungs are full of lead" runs. I'm excited to share some of my tricks with you and hear some of yours as well. I'm also a self proclaimed health nut and I'd love to blog about some of the healthy and nutritious recipes I've come across and the occasional not so healthy recipe (cause life is all about having fun, after all). Thanks for reading and please drop by again sometime!
