My Tely 10 in Pictures

Wednesday, July 28, 2010 0

See the Tely 10 Web site for all things Tely 10 - including times. I had a personal best this year. 90 minutes!

My orange shoelaces make me feel like a superstar runner.

What a beautiful and important message to focus on your own personal strengths and abilities.

Mews 8 km

Monday, July 12, 2010 0

It's only 2 weeks until the Tely 10 and I am getting into race mode. After the 10 km race a couple of weeks ago, I decided to try the 8 km race this past weekend as well.

It was HOT.

It being my first time racing the 8 distance, I again had no goal time, but I am totally happy with 42 minutes! I can feel the hill and speed repeats paying off.

Here are some pictures of me during the race!

It was a great run, and I'm looking forward to the Tely. Yoga tomorrow to stretch out my weary muscles!

Lululemon has this GREAT campaign going on.

It seemed very timely to share this image, as I just finished my first Moksha ("hot") yoga class. and let me tell you, I did not sweat as much on my 19 k run earlier in the day as I did in this class. I am looking forward to more!

Read lululemon's full blog post "why you should sweat once a day" and get out there and move!

Summer Salad

Saturday, July 3, 2010 0

A few weeks ago we spotted a great summer salad recipe in our new edition of Runner's World. Last night we finally made it! What a great, light, fresh and unique salad.

Watermelon is a good source of lycopene, an antioxidant that may lower risk of developing certain cancers, cardiovascular disease, and macular degeneration. Pair the salad with a few slices of toasted French bread for a light lunch.

2 pounds watermelon, rind removed
1 cup Greek feta cheese, crumbled
1 cup fresh mint leaves, cut into a chiffonade (thin strips), or left whole if small
*(Note: the mint adds a very strong and unique flavour. If you are not a fan of mint, you might want to leave this out)
1 cup mixed baby greens

1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt, or to taste
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil or lemon oil

Cut the watermelon into large chunks. Place an equal amount of melon on each of four chilled dinner plates. (Alternatively, cut the melon into four large circles, each one inch thick and four and a half inches wide, and place one circle on each plate.)

Sprinkle one-quarter of the cheese, mint, and greens on the watermelon.

Then make the dressing: Place the salt and lemon juice in a jar with a lid and shake to blend. Add the oil and shake once more.

Taste for seasoning, then drizzle the dressing over each salad. (The dressing will also keep in the refrigerator for up to three days.)

Serves four.

Tranquil Moments

Breakfast outside by the pool in the HEAT. It's amazing, this was such a special treat for me. I wonder if I lived in Florida all the time, would I appreciate this so much? Probably not, we always tend to take the things around us for granted after a while.
