Cheating is THE WORST. 


...unless it's when your cooking. Call it cheating, call it a fake out, whatever. Then it's ok.

Because then you get things like this:
I wanted a loaded baked potato, but only had "cheater spuds" (instant mashed potatoes).

So I made some... Added cheese, some seasoning, poured it over broccoli, added more cheese and bacon, then covered it with foil and baked it for twenty minutes.

Boom. Get in my belly, you delicious bowl of fake baked loaded taters.


Ever throw some things together and just hope it tastes good? How did that work for you?

I make no promises

...but, here I am. Waving hello! And happy to report I found my running mojo again.

All it took was buying some new running bottoms from InknBurn...

Finding my headbands (finally! Some have been missing since the move in November!)....

And signing up for the Route 66 half marathon.

It's on a Sunday, so I won't have to ask for time off. And Tulsa is just a short (by oklahoma standards) drive away, so why not?

I already marked when to begin training in my planner. 

I'm finally ready to run again!!!! 

What's the longest break you've taken from running?
Longest period of unstructured running? I never stopped running this time, but I will admit, I have only been averaging 1 run per week since arriving in Oklahoma.
