5 Pre-Race Tips to Ensure You’re Ready for that International Race

It’s almost here! It’s been almost a year and a half since the morning we were standing in the corrals at the Disney Princess Half Marathon and they announced the Inaugural Disneyland Paris Race Weekend. Since then, we’ve been busy training and I’ve been busy helping some of you secure your bibs and plan your trip. Now it’s time to put that training into action and bring back the BLING! Which one(s) of these will  you be bringing back? In…

Summer Fruit Popsicles for Your Winter Freezer #SundaySupper

Summer Fruit Popsicles for Your Winter Freezer #SundaySupper

There’s something about the end of summer that really makes me want to preserve it for those cold, dark days of winter.  Sure we can find more and more produce all year round in the grocery store, but it’s those farmer’s market finds that really POP on your taste buds. I like to make batches of sauces and soups to freeze for the winter along with lots of popsicles for Mini Me. That girl can lick a popsicle in below…

What a Difference Nine Months Makes

What a Difference Nine Months Makes

  As I entered the plane, the usual feeling that comes over me was gone. For the last couple years, I’ve found it increasingly difficult to fasten my seat belt when getting on a plane. Sometimes the seat belts seemed longer than others. Other times I had to push with as much force as I could muster to get the belt to click. And once or twice, I simply threw the belt around me placing it very strategically and hoping…

6 Tips to Ensure You Have an Enjoyable Racecation Experience

In the last couple years it seems that most of our family’s vacations have been conceptualized after finding a bucket list race that either my husband or I (or both us) wants to do.  It quickly became the spirit of vacationing for our family and a worldwide concept of pairing your vacation with your race, a term commonly referred to as a Racecation. There are a number of things that should be considered when planning a racecation, so that neither…

Hometown Excitement Builds for TeamMaryland’s Katie Zaferes

The excitement is building in our hometown this week. One of our own, Katie (Hursey) Zaferas, will be racing triathlon at the Olympics on Saturday. Katie swam on the swim team I now coordinate and still holds twenty team records! It’s not often that a swimmer comes along that has that kind of longevity. Katie stopped swimming for the Piranhas in 2006, so for a decade now, her records have stood the test of time. Most of those records aren’t…

Game Day Bacon & Cheddar Tater Skins #SundaySupper

ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOOOOTTTTBALLLLL????   In this house, we are die-hard Ravens fans.  Flags flying, purple wearing, houses decorated, and neighborhood tailgating Ravens fans.   During one away game each year, our neighborhood throws a Raven’s Tailgate in our cul-de-sac.  I’m not talking your typical tailgate here.  I’m talking an all day extravangaza.  Some years have started with a race through the neighborhood and field goal kickoff….and, of course, what’s a tailgate without a parade!  It wouldn’t be complete without…

How to Prevent Being Paralyzed by Perfection

How to Prevent Being Paralyzed by Perfection

Around my office, I’m known by a few names – Overachiever, Running Fingers, Running with Scissors. No, these names are meant to be cruel. They are fun loving names that we all give each other because of our OCD tendencies. You don’t want to see what it looks like to work with 62 other Forensic Scientists! From the outside looking in, my profession (which I love) strongly resembles an OCD group therapy session. Most of us are high achieving, Type…
