Baked sweet potato chips

Do you ever just want something crunchy? Well, I often crave something like chips or crackers. I decided to take the idea of sweet potato fries and turn them into baked chips. It is SUPER easy, as you know that cooking is not necessarily my forte, and very delicious!

As with everything I make, they are also incredibly versatile, and easily catered to your personal tastes. Continue reading

Week 4: Finish strong!

Well, here we are! We made it to week 4! I hope you all have exceeded your weekly goals, and found strength within you to do better everytime you hit the pavement. So, what is your last goal for the month?

While I want to keep it reasonable, because I know slow increases are important, I am going to suggest a less modest final goal as well.

(Whether you choose to attempt the goal that seems slightly more attainable or something to push you a bit harder, you’re doing great and will continue to do well. Don’t be ashamed, running is hard!)

Week 4 Goal: three 1.5 mile runs, two 2 mile runs;

However, if the case is that you in fact, DON’T get through it, and choose to stop, I  have some suggestions for next time sleepy leg syndrome comes creeping into your run. Continue reading

And remember…

Happy Running!

Sign up for a race

One of my readers reminded me that a great way to keep yourself working hard is to sign up for a race. Even if it’s a 5k, it’s worth doing. When you set a personal goal, it’s easy to forget about it. A race, however, is set in stone and once it’s paid for, you are in it to win it whether you want to be or not!

Check out these websites to find your next race! Continue reading
