It's been a month since my last post, and I have to say a lot has happened! I've been lucky enough to become the co-leader for the Nebraska/South Dakota Oiselle Volée! I'm really excited about the ideas we have for team meet-ups and more! I started my first official training cycle of 2017. It feels … Continue reading Time Flies!
A few weeks ago, I saw people posting that Nuun had opened up their application for 2017 ambassadors. I've been using Nuun for years now. My stomach never settled well with traditional sports drinks, and while I used Hammer Heed for a while, it was a little too high maintenance for my taste.

It's in May, so there is only a slight gap between training cycles. I realized, while thinking about my training for that, that I've … Continue reading Training a Little Out of Focus

I've always loved Thai food, but never really knew how to make. Whole30 changed a lot of that for me, and one of the recipes that really has become a staple is red curry with chicken. I've mashed together a few different recipes to make what has become my quick weeknight dish. A few notes about … Continue reading Cold Nights. Hot Curry.
This post is about pie. Glorious, glorious pie that I baked for Thanksgiving. And I suppose I should mention that Joe and I also ran a turkey trot on Thanksgiving! My husband does not love running - he prefers his cardio with chlorine and most of his workouts with free weights. But he laced up for … Continue reading This is All About Pie
