Sleep Training 101

2014-8-18-Disclosure Statement

Arrowhead Getaway

I’ve known that August was going to be my busiest month, but wow. I’ve just came out of the second of three consecutive weekends away from home. First it was IDEA World. Last weekend it was a bachelorette party in Lake Arrowhead. Next weekend it will be a trip to Napa.

Fortunately Moxie can handle weekends alone with dad.
Can’t say she’s thrilled about it, though.

The Run Factor: Being Grateful

The Run Factor: Being Grateful

For many, the decision to start running is an important landmark. Running has a way of changing how we see things. The ongoing decision to run influences who you are. It’s what I call the The Run Factor.

Bar Hopping with KIND

2014-8-18-Disclosure StatementNo, I’m not frequenting any seedy establishments selling booze. Today I’m talking about food bars. I can’t deny the convenience of a food bar when life happens and time for real food prep is scarce. I like variety, so I hop between different brands of bars that I like for different reasons, which I’ll share with you now.

Run To Eat or Eat to Run?

No matter which kind of runner you are, you get hungry. I bet your body wants snacks between meals. I bet you also like to eat really tasty things. I totally support enjoying a treat every now and then, which is I why I like snack-sized treats.
