Hi friends! How's your week going? It is windy and rainy and yucky outside here today... we've already had several tornadoes through the area (not the norm for central Florida) and I saw a picture of a semi blown onto a car... on the bridge I have to drive over to get home :/ not looking forward to that!
luckily, tomorrow is.... Friiiiiday! I'm super stoked. We're having our first *offiical* pool party of the year on Saturday, and my running buddy & I are changing things up this weekend and doing a long bike ride instead of a run! Our race (Iron Girl half!) is next weekend, so we're taking it *easy* (the other day, I asked my running buddy if she wanted to do Tabata intervals. I said, "you run so fast you want to die." she said, "when can we start?" I love that girl!)
Since I'm newly vegan, just for fun I thought I'd post the Vegan Bucket List from VegWeb! (okay, I am suffering technical difficulties and can't post it right now... but go check it out!) I've done #3, 10, 14, 15, 22- that's me, myth-buster :) especially regarding protein!, 23 - does training for a half marathon count? ;), 26, 29, 38, 39, 42- every chance I get, I give up the car!, 46, 49, 70 - my favorite comeback to "do you get enough protein?" is "do you get enough veggies?"). I have to admit, part of my desire to do this was I love lists! I am very type A, virgo-ish, perfectionistic... and a neurotic list maker! I love lists! and checking stuff off!
How about you? List maker or list hater?
How many things on the list have you done? Or what *vegan* thing or food would you like to try?

Hiya! Long time, no blog :/ I figure a quick update is better than nothing!
I've been a busy bee lately! I did finish my Gasparilla 15K at the end of February - time was 1:32 - I was happy to finish :) and I signed up for the Iron Girl 1/2 marathon April 10 along Clearwater beach. I love looking at the water & beach when I run - so relaxing!
Recently, the kind folks at Newman's Own sent me some products to try out, along with a flip (yay! so exciting). They did not pay me for my opinion or recipe, but did provide their products (3 jars of marinara sauces and 3 bottles of salad dressing) and a flip for me to make a recipe video. Seeing yourself on camera is so strange! I used iMovie to edit the footage and it was actually really fun. I think I'll be making some more recipe videos ;) unfortunately, I was in a rush for the deadline and did this sans makeup after a weekend at the beach, when I was both desperately in need of a shower and starving! and in one take... I love to see other blogger's videos and photos of their life - so I hope you enjoy!
