Running is a great sport and for me it is a way of life. I don’t look like the stereotypical runner but who cares. Runners come in all shapes and sizes. Running is about connecting with nature and about testing your mental and physical endurance. I began running when I was about 8 years old and I feel like my love affair seemed to have gotten stronger the older I get. I am currently not able to run due to a recurring ankle injury but in time I will able to get back out there and join my fellow running nuts. In the main time I would like to share the following amazing deal from my friends at the Spartan Race.

It is breast cancer awareness month. I am fairly certain that we have all been affected by this destructive disease. I lost one of my mentors and other “mom” to cancer a few years ago. She was a college professor and an advocate for living an active lifestyle. She ran marathons and taught aerobics. I took her aerobics class once and left half way because I couldn’t keep up. She inspired me to keep moving when life became difficult during my junior year of college. I decided to get involved with this cause because it means a lot to me.
I received an email from the Spartan Race that I really love. They are doing this great promotion to support the Edith Sanford Breast Foundation’s mission to help raise funds for more research. The goal of the Edith Sanford Breast Foundation is to help “unlock each woman’s genetic code, advance today’s prevention and treatment, and end breast cancer for future generations.”
Supporting this great mission is simple, all you do is purchase a “Burpees for Boobs” Tee-shirt. The Spartan Race will donate 100% of the funds to the Foundation. This is a limited time event. If you are interested please head over to the http://www.shop.spartan.com/boobs.html and help this great cause.
You can do more by fundraising with your Spartan team.
The idea of eating less or no meat has never been a problem for me. I was concerned that it would lead to me eating some pretty boring and gross looking things. Fortunately for me, there is google. I have been researching recipes and reading up some other blogs to find great meal ideas. I found some great ones that I have modified to meet my needs.
Here is one I really liked, I did change some ingredients.
2 cups of sliced portobello mushrooms
1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 orange bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 pack of extra firm organic tofu, sliced like fries
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
2 ripe avocados, slice1 medium
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 jar of mild peach and mango salsa
1 package of gluten free tortillas
1. Heat 3/4 of the oil in a pan and fry the seasoned tofu sticks and set them aside.
2. Reduce the oil and sauté the mushrooms for a minute or two. Set them aside.
3. Take the sliced vegetables and sauté them with a dash of salt and pepper. Drizzle some lemon juice the veggies cook. Remove the veggies and prepare to plate the food.
4. Set up your taco anyway you want with tofu, mushrooms, peppers, onions and avocado and then top it with the yummy salsa.
