The Whole30 Diet: My Whole30 Experience

I’ve been debating when I wanted to share my experience and thoughts on Whole30 for quite some time. I wanted to share it in detail mid-way through my first 30 days, then after my first 30 days. I could have easily shared my thoughts after my first 30 days. But, knowing I was going to do at least another 30 days — I wanted to wait. If I was going to share my thoughts on…

[DEEP BREATH] … the fun and madness is about to go into full swing!

First off — Happy 7 Eleven Day! Happy Slurpee Day! This is truly a holiday worth celebrating. But, oddly, I am not this year. Unless there is a sudden change of rules, Slurpees are not on the Whole30 diet. Which is such a shame. Especially considering it’d probably make it the most popular diet in America. But, alas, it is not — for obvious reasons. So any of my Slurpee drinking friends out there — please…

InstaReplay: 13 Miles of Freedom

This morning I ran the 13 Miles of Freedom put on by Extra Mile Racing. It was a fun a little race along the Jordan River Parkway. I went into the race without any expectations — I got exactly what I prepared myself for! HAHAHA!

RAGNAAAAAAR!!! What a fun and wild weekend. What a fun and wild week! Not only did I have RAGNAR this weekend, but this week was full of family weddings, parties and festivities. My little brother got married on Thursday so most of the week was spent prepping for that. Since I had to be ready by 4am to ride up to Logan on Friday night — as soon as I got home from the wedding…

Thanksgiving Week: A Very YouTube Thanksgiving Dinner

No matter who’s doing the cooking for Thanksgiving, we all want to put our best dishes out there. Whether you are cooking the whole meal or happen to bringing a side or dessert to the dinner we want it to be our best. And, sometimes we don’t have the luxury of having the world’s best cook as our mother or grandmother so we have to look elsewhere. So why not on YouTube? So I have…

Motivation Monday

I found this little video floating around on the internet. What a great piece of motivation. Not just for beginning runners, but those needing the motivation and drive to push a little harder, faster and deeper (TWSS … sorry that probably totally ruined the moment, but I had to, the situation presented itself). Anyways, I hope you enjoy it like I did. Happy Monday! Happy Running!
