Good morning! Happy Friday!!

So, is it too early to start thinking about my race calendar for next year?



Well, I’m a planner, and I just can’t help myself sometimes, so I’m already setting the wheels in motion.

The first race on my calendar for 2013 is the Rock ”˜N’ Roll New Orleans Half Marathon! Go big or go home!


I’m running this one with my friends Monica and Chandra. The three of us have been talking for months about planning an epic reunion, so when someone suggested this race, we knew it was the perfect adventure. Fun, friends, flashing, and running! I can’t wait to see what shenanigans transpire from this weekend!

Also on my race calendar for 2013 is the ZOOMA Annapolis Half Marathon, which I am running on behalf of ZOOMA as one of the members of their Blogger Advisory Panel.


I am totally psyched for this race. When I saw Anne a couple of weeks ago, she raved about the ZOOMA Annapolis Half Marathon (it was her first half marathon), which got me even more pumped for it!

Registration for the ZOOMA Annapolis Half Marathon & 10K is now open, and if you register before March 3, 2013, you’ll received a special Training Care Package in the mail. ZOOMA put together all the items they think are essential when you start training for a race””practical things to set you up for success and fun things to keep you motivated, too! ZOOMA is also looking for ambassadors for the Annapolis race.

ZOOMA ambassadors are active, energetic, creative running/healthy living bloggers who are influential both online through social media and in their running communities. Our ambassadors inspire, encourage and motivate other women to better themselves through running. All fitness and experience levels are encouraged to apply.

As an ambassador, you will. . .

Use your blog, twitter, Facebook and various social media accounts to inform your followers about ZOOMA, inspire them complete a half marathon or 5K/10K, and serve as an ambassador for women’s running in the local  community.

If you’re interested in becoming a ZOOMA ambassador for the Annapolis Half Marathon & 10K, you can apply online here.

And since we’re on the topic of running”¦ I was mentioned in the December issue of Runner’s World as part of an article about social media and running. So cool!!

Runner’s World selected me (@CarrotsNCake) along with a number of my blog buddies as people to follow on Twitter. My name was grouped with the “Foodies (or Drinkies)” section!


Tina Haupert, author and health blogger

WHY FOLLOW? If you’re looking for simple, healthy meal ideas””she posts what she eats daily, along side details of her running and CrossFit workouts (and photos of her pug).

Love the description! It perfectly describes my blog, and I love that the pug got a mention in there too!


Yesterday morning’s breakfast was kind of a bomb. It tasted fine, but it didn’t look pretty. I tried to make pumpkin pancakes, but the batter ended up being too thin””almost like a crepe””and then stuck to the pan, so it came out like a weirdo pumpkin omelet. I think there’s hope for this recipe, so I’m going to try again and make some tweaks to it.

After breakfast, I took Murphy for a walk and then got my work on. I broke for lunch a few hours later. On the menu: leftover veggies and chicken mixed with the Curry Spice Blend (minus the sea salt), which I am totally obsessed with. I swear, it makes any old boring meal taste a million times better!

After lunch, I did some baking and made a mess of the kitchen.

Mal always says it looks like poltergeist come to visit when I bake/cook because I leave all of the cabinets open. Haha!


Of course, I needed to sample a Butternut White Chocolate Chip Bar. Mmmmm! Great afternoon snack!
