Taper Week + Fun Gigs!

Well, here we are. The week before my first half-marathon and I gotta say that I'm pretty excited about it! This week is the second of two taper weeks, meaning that the milage is less than previous weeks. It kind of feels weird only running a few miles instead of 7-10, but it all leads...

Game On!

It's official!! I will be running the Monumental Half Marathon on November 3rd here in Indianapolis! The race is exactly 12 weeks away, so my No-Meat-Athlete Half Marathon Roadmap will be perfect to get me ready for 13.1 miles! Now that running a Half-Marathon is 'real', it is kind of daunting! I've never run more... Continue Reading →

The Challenge

I recently began reading the "No Meat Athlete Half Marathon Roadmap: The Vegetarian Guide to Conquering Your First 13.1" by Matt Frazier. Before the book gets into the training program the first Chapter is all about 'Making It Real: Goals and Commitments'. In this chapter, Matt asks you questions and you have to answer them....

Time flies…

Wow. Time really flies when you're avoiding doing things. It has been quite a while since I last blogged. I have gotten started on several blogs, but just put them in the 'Drafts' folder. I felt as if I didn't have anything interesting to talk about, but I finally realized that I have yet to talk... Continue Reading →

30 Day Experiment: Mid-Week 2

Clearly, I'm not going to write 30 separate posts throughout this experiment. I want friends at the end of it all. Instead, I'm just going to post some random thoughts as I go through things. Something occurred the past couple of days that I have found interesting. When I enter a grocery store, I actually begin to... Continue Reading →

30 Day Experiment: Day 4

Day 4 into this no-drinking, vegan eating, exercising every day, and things are progressing quite well I'd say. My energy is up, I never feel bloated (nor hungover which is nice) and I'm having fun trying to make new dishes and even experiment a bit in the kitchen. Am I missing the dairy/cheese/meat/alcohol? Surprisingly, not... Continue Reading →

On Being Vegetarian, A Personal History

I recently read a wonderful blog by Matt Frazier, curator of the No Meat Athlete blog called, "Veg Curious? Don't Be Fooled By These 7 Myths About A Vegetarian Diet". This article got me thinking about how I ended up a vegetarian. I realized I've been toying with vegetarianism for a majority of my life, really, for most of... Continue Reading →

Do As I Say….Not As I Do (fear)

Well, I just finished my first semester teaching Music Business Marketing at IUPUI and I gotta say, I think it turned out alright! The class was kind of thrust upon me rather quickly back in January and I didn't have time to read the textbook before the semester started, nor really prepare as much as... Continue Reading →
