Run Like A Diva Race Recap

This past weekend, a couple thousand women (and a few men) embraced their inner Diva for the Run Like A Diva half marathon and 5k races.  I was one of them. The Hubs, our friend Hurricane Baby and I headed down to Galveston on Saturday late am.  We stopped on the way there at Salata so that I could fuel…

Mashed Potato Enchiladas

  Two favorites combined in one dish… mashed potatoes and Mexican food! My ex-mother-in-law used to make enchiladas filled with mashed potatoes and cheese for me… they were the best things ever.  I never got the recipe from her.  So, I had to recreate these in my kitchen and they do resemble the ones I used to have so generously…

Tapering down for the half marathon on Sunday. More on this later in the week. I feel like I have cut down too much this week, but I think I will be ok. The week started out awful with heavy rains and thunderstorms all through the night on Sunday.  I wound up sleeping out on the couch to try to…

Happy Run-versary!

Happy Friday-eve! Today I’m joining Amanda at Running with Spoons for “Thinking Out Loud”. What’s on my mind… Today marks the day I got back into running 1 year ago!  I started out slow with the C25k app on my phone and progressed from there.  I ran a half-marathon in February and have a few more coming up. I am…

Vegetarian Fajitas

I remember as a kid, one of my favorite meals would be chicken fajitas.  I no longer eat chicken, but thanks to Gardein I’m able to recreate that dish! I love the smokeyness of the fajita seasoning… and being able to pile on whatever fixins that I want… I always end up putting way too much into my tortilla and…

Workouts … last week today – April 17

I’ve started to taper down a bit for my upcoming half marathons.  Run Like A Diva is in 7 days! I have kept up with planks for the week, but have taken out the HIIT until I get across the finish line.  The beauty (to me) of the 12 Minute Athlete app is that you get a different workout each…
