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…

BBQ Chicken Cauliflower Crust Pizza

BBQ Chicken Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Ever since I perfected my Cauliflower Pizza Crust, I’ve been making all my favorite versions of pizza in a healthier way.  One of our family favorites is BBQ Chicken Pizza. With a few simple ingredients, you can have your Family Game Night or Pizza Friday dinner in the oven! All you need is a little red onion, your favorite barbecue sauce, some mozzarella cheese and some pre-cooked chicken (leftover chicken breast or a rotisserie chicken). After making the cauliflower crust,…

Hometown Excitement Builds for TeamMaryland’s Katie Zaferes

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…

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…

Ratatouille Bolognese

Ratatouille Bolognese

I get really excited during the summer and fall when there are so many amazing vegetables available at the farmer’s market. Something about chopping vegetables, putting them in a pot and cooking them down just really says comfort to me. It really takes me back to my childhood watching my mother and grandmother spend Sundays making the most amazing meals from scratch. So, when I was trying to decide what to make for dinner tonight, I wanted to use some…

Four Cheese Wild Mushroom Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Four Cheese Wild Mushroom Cauliflower Crust Pizza

I don’t know about you, but I really have a hard time avoiding pizza. There is something about that ooey gooey cheese and the way my palate wakes up when the hot cheese, savory tomato sauce and thick doughy crust hits it. So, when I started consuming less carbs in my diet, I knew pizza was going to be one of the hardest things for me to minimize. Notice, I said minimize. I will still eat a slice every now…

Racecation Spotlight: 5 Beach Trip Triathlons

When it’s summer, a beach triathlon kills two birds with one stones – getting in a race and taking a family vacation. When the kids are begging to go to the beach, you can pack up your gear and grant their wish! If you’re training for a Half Ironman or and Ironman later in the season, doing a sprint race will let you get in some actual event training and serve as a great training workout for that day.   East…
