Auxiliary workouts – Weight lifting?

I’ve started adding auxiliary workouts to my running. This all started when I injured my knees a few years ago and was forbidden from running by my physical therapist – side note, always listen to your PTs. I took up swim conditioning, because there was little to no impact and my knees were just dandy […]

Banh Mi – Yes Please!

It had been a little while since I had cooked up anything new, so when I came across this recipe for Banh Mi I figured it was worth a shot – especially since the “main ingredient” is a 2lb slow cooked pork shoulder roast! I made a small change by having Jeney whip up a […]

2016 Early Running Plans

Well, it’s now March and it’s time to take a serious look at the year – at least for running and travels. We don’t have as many plans for 2016, although part of that is due to Jeney being wrapped up, for good reason, in completing her PhD work. Another reason is the uncertainty of […]

Winter Running Images In Ithaca

It’s been a fairly tame winter in the NE – at least in the Ithaca area. We had a relatively snow and ice free fall and early winter and have only recently (February) gotten into some of the REAL cold stuff. Today I went out for a short 4 mile trail run and it was […]

Ho Ho Holiday 5k Fun Run – Ithaca Version

Back in Vancouver, WA on the 13th of December, 2015, there was a big run/walk 5k to raise money for a good friend of mine who is having ongoing issues with a brain tumor. Since we couldn’t make it back from Ithaca for this, we posted on Facebook and asked friends to come out run a […]

Cat’s Tail Trail Marathon 2015

One thing that is always something to look forward to in upstate NY is the fall. Once the leaves start changing and the weather cools down – well, it’s just nice! On October 2nd, Jeney and I drove a few hours east towards Phoenicia, NY, for the inaugural running of the Cat’s Tail Trail Marathon. […]

Mt Democrat – Hiking In The Rockies

Yesterday we went up our first 14er while getting acclimated to the altitude here in Colorado – this was Jeney’s first hike up a 14er and my 3rd. Mt. Democrat, just outside Alma, CO, was a fun hike, and the weather couldn’t have been nicer. A short steep climb takes you from the trailhead at […]

Southwestern Chopped Salad with Cilantro Dressing

(adapted from I’m fairly certain I just searched for “cilantro corn black bean salad” and found “Southwestern Chopped Salad with Cilantro Dressing” by the GardenGrazer.  She’s incredibly clever, and it is fun to read her comments on making the salad. All credit goes to her! Unfortunately, the salad typically disappears so quickly that I […]
