One of my best friend's from college has been touring with one of his best friends, Holly Miranda, that he met when he moved to New York after graduation. I found this great video of their tour in November. Every now and again he rolls through town and we catch up over beers, wine, and occasionally, guitars.

New Running Blog

A few days ago I was trying to find consumer reports on the Garmin Forerunner and I came across the DC Rainmaker. CHECK HIM OUT! And he does GIVEAWAYS!

Independence Weekend

Headed to Dewey Beach for what is quickly evolving into a yearly tradition for the July 4th weekend. Fireworks with Jill's family and lots of bar hopping again. Plus a weekend-long celebration of Gabe's 25th birthday!

Enjoy some Regina! "I've got a perfect body, but sometimes I forget.
I've got a perfect body cuz my eyelashes catch my sweat."

California Raisins

Check out what I got for my car...

Breakfast fit for an Ultrarunner

I decided to try a quasi-recipe that I read about in "Born to Run." For breakfast the day of the big ultra-marathon (100 miles in scorching heat and over deadly terrain) this Mexican woman made all the runners a special kind of pancake. It included corn meal, goat's milk, overripe bananas, and boiled rice mixed into the batter. I used Trader Joe's whole grain pancake mix, three overripe bananas, boiled rice, half and half (this was last minute so I had to make due with what I had) and skipped the corn meal all together.

They were delicious - but filling!

Father's Day

This morning I was reading one of my favorite NYTimes columnists, Nicholas Kristof. He gave some great ideas for Father's Day Gifts. For Mother's Day I gave a "birthing kit" in honor of my mom so I decided I would do something similar for my dad. (Thanks for reminding me, Kristof.)
I chose to buy my dad a Hero Rat! These rats are trained to find land mines so that children don't. So it's macho and kind at the same time, and very fitting for my dad.
