Leap Day Monday

I wish I could resolve my glasses fogging up during my ride... :think: Last day of the Wellness Walking Challenge...

Re: What's for dinner?

When we were in Golden BC we happened on a little cafe that served the Glory Bowl salad. DH and I are totally hooked on this dressing (and salad) - it is sooo yummy!! We found the dressing in a bottle while we were out there but ran out quickly so I made it myself last night. I think I like my homem...

My neighbourhood scores a 72 on walkability, 71 on transit... When we first moved there I was amazed at the number of people I saw walking to work every day. The bus stops are always lined up too. There's a bus route that connects the neighbourhood to the downtown transit corridor&rapid transit ...

Yes .. The dr said to use the mid foot for pedalling and not the forefoot ... So I'll have to replace my clips with platforms.

Re: Good fuel for long runs

If I am doing an extended period of time (cycling, running, adventure racing) I will often take baked potatoes...I find they sit in my stomach better than gels do because they aren't sweet.
