An Ode to Suffering

July 16, 2017 | Recent Musings, Things that matter | No comment

An Ode to Suffering. Haiku style.   Anticipation Still and dark, the hazy glow As focus ensues   The day unfolds, yet not with ease, the doubt seeps in And clouds the mind grey   The body follows suit, and soon all is shattered, tiny pieces fall   Yet they pursue, the Reason unknown, except… read more »

When you bonk you make strawberry donuts

June 4, 2017 | Recipes, Treats | No comment

After a failed run yesterday, I slept in and decided to bake something delicious. DONUTS! I’ve been pushing hard to prepare for Western States and my body decided it needed a break. So I indulged. With race day just about two weeks out, these are the days that make a difference. Anyway. DONUTS. The genius… read more »

Luck O’ The Irish

  Taste the rainbow…. Is there anything that better conjures up childhood dreams of leprechauns, rainbows, and a magical fairyland than a bowl of sugary marshmallow cereal?? Lucky Charms were a rare occurrence in the Howe household, but I do remember a couple blissful mornings of a marshmallow induced sugar coma. So worth it. I like to… read more »

My Friends at Kahtoola

February 27, 2017 | Racing | No comment

In January 2016, despite having a very recent Achilles surgery, Danny Giovale, founder of Kahtoola, signed me to the team. That’s the thing about Danny, he is quite possibly the most caring and generous human being I’ve ever met. Not many individuals would willingly begin a partnership with an injured athlete, especially one who wouldn’t… read more »

Things That Matter

November 11, 2016 | Things that matter | 1 comment

People matter. Black lives matter. Minorities matter. Refugees matter. Women matter. LGBT matter. Human beings matter. I had a new post written to share about a race I just completed. But now it seems so trivial to be talking about running. There are bigger things on my mind. On everyone’s mind. Heavy. Nothing has really changed…. read more »

Hey, I ran a race!

Elk-King’s Traverse 50k Oh that felt good! Well, actually not, but it felt amazing to be able to run 31 miles again! I am so thankful my body is capable of this again. It’s been a long time. A really, really long time. The last time I toed the line was UTMB, and it did not go… read more »

Baked Chocolate Donuts

Sick days are no fun. But, they are better when you make donuts!…. and eat almost all of them in one sitting. Ooops. I’m not going to claim these baked donuts are as tasty as their fried counterparts,  but they are pretty easy to whip up without the mess of trying to make a deep fryer in… read more »

Roasted Squash & Arugula Salad

I have a love/hate relationship with fall. It’s one of my favorite seasons, but it’s also the beginning of the end….. Winter is coming. But, the flavors! I absolutely LOVE squash and root vegetables in cooking, and delicata squash is one of my favorites. After a week in Vegas I was ready to have some vegetables… read more »

2016. The Year of the Devil

August 2, 2016 | Uncategorized | 6 comments

  Technically, 2016 is the year of the Monkey. But for me, 2016 has been the year of the Devil. “That’s great, it starts with an earthquake Birds and snakes, an aeroplane, and Lenny Bruce is not afraid” It didn’t start with an earthquake in the literal sense, but achilles surgery last December was pretty… read more »
