While we were in Mexico just over a month ago, we took a quick cooking class with one of the resort’s chefs. He taught us to make ceviche.
This year was gone in a flash – I can’t believe today is day 365 of 2016. Looking back, it feels like we didn’t do much but I guess not much can add up to a whole lot. So here’s our 2016 year-in-review / holiday card…
The Hayleys needed a vacation. Work has been epically busy, plus our Galloway running group duties and a host of other things we’ve said yes to over time. Then there’s the whole, Hey – we haven’t been on a proper vacation in over two years thing. That’s how we found ourselves in Mexico right after Thanksgiving.

Stop One: Corsair Distillery We […]
I sometimes joke that I run because I love food. That’s partially true, though there’s a host of other reasons that I run. The full list of reasons would definitely include fighting my genetic predisposition, staying fit, feeling strong, and setting and achieving goals. But when it comes to New Orleans, I most definitely believe that I’m running in order to eat. Because the food in New Orleans…oh my goodness.

Although we didn’t have a lot of time in Kentucky, here are some great local finds from our snowy week in the state. Turtlelini’s | Horse Cave, Kentucky When you’re driving from Lexington to […]
