Happy Halloween, readers! Steve and I watch a lot of scary movies.

Classics like Halloween and Friday the 13th are two of the worst culprits when it … Read More

Overall, protein consumption increased 15% from … Read More

While I know I’ve done (most of) the training, I can’t say that I feel completely prepared to run 13.1 miles. We’ve been a bit schedule-challenged the past 2-3 weeks, so I’m nervous about having missed a … Read More
