Get Outside and Fuel Your Adventures with LÄRABAR


Today’s post is sponsored by LÄRABAR, but we’ve been fueling our adventures with them for a while now and the opinions expressed here are all my own.

I feel like I’m forgetting something. Walking around this morning I feel like there’s something pressing and important and I just can’t remember what it is.

We leave Storytime close to 11, have a quick snack and try to get through the [...]

Training and Injury Update


Last week was the best week of running I’ve had since Reach the Beach. I was able to log 21 miles with absolutely no discomfort, and some of that was on rolling terrain which involved a bit of downhill running (those seem to be the biggest aggravators for the tendonitis in my calf). For the [...]
