Just a brief post to let you know that I've got some exciting stuff in store for you at both this blog & my recipe/healthy cooking blog, "Cook. Eat. Drink. Blog."
Over the past several days I've been writing up a storm, & although nothing's been posted yet because it's still in the draft stages, I'm really excited to share these articles with you, that is, as soon as they are ready!
I don't want to spoil their content, so all I'll say right now is that I hope that you'll feel as energized after reading these articles as I did while writing them.
They are packed with lots of really useful & insightful tidbits, & while I've also been very hard at work on multiple projects, I hope to post these articles very soon.

Hello there, fellow runners-athletes & social media enthusiasts alike!
Check out the NEW Facebook group for runners/endurance athletes who are on Twitter, called "Runner Tweeps." Finally, a Facebook group JUST for us!
And, as far as I know, it's the first & only tweeting runners group of its kind on Facebook. :)
There are so many runners on both Facebook & Twitter, it just made sense to create this group, so we could all connect and share out Twitter IDs with each other. This site is the place where you can bond with long-time runner tweeps, find/reconnect with long-lost runner pals, & meet new runners who tweet (from all over the globe!).
To prevent spam, the group has been set up with closed membership (i.e., by invitation-only); however, if you'd like to join, all you have to do is request an invite & I'll add you to the group, that is, provided you aren't a spammer, & your identity is externally verifiable via multiple legitimate sources. :)
Twitter & Facebook are great places to help you stay motivated in your sport(s), discover new resources, get tips & exchange information, & support/encourage fellow endurance athletes! So hop aboard & see what the fun's all about. Hope you have a great time & enjoy socializing with the other runners there!
Wow, the group is growing quickly! (And he group's only been in existence for a mere few hours!) Thank you to those of you who've already joined & have left comments on the group's Facebook page!

It's been a while since my last post, and there's a good reason for this: I've been really busy lately!
There are several new & exciting plans in the works, several of which I'll be revealing here at some point (hopefully!) in the near future.
As for recent news regarding the marathon training, I've had a small set-back and have been off my feet for an entire week, nursing some recurring knee pain & soreness. I basically already know why this happened, but don't really feel like going into it right now. Instead, what I want to focus on is getting back out there, while of course carefully monitoring the situation. If the soreness keeps up, I might be headed to the doctor.
Since it's been about week since my last run, the next run will most likely be a 3-5 miler. I always run based on feel -- how the body feels, and in this case, more specifically, the knees. The way I look at it, it's like my body is a car (I won't say what model year - LOL!) & I'll be taking her out for a test spin on the road today. :)

Just a quick heads up: I just posted some new healthy gourmet recipes on my recipe blog, Cook. Eat. Drink. Blog., so check it out when you get the chance.
There are also several new health/nutrition-related posts there as well.
Thought you might enjoy!
Also, I'm going to be featured as "Chef of the Month" at CookEatShare.com, which has been favorably reviewed by the New York Times, Daily Candy, Eater, & the like. You can read more about that honor here.
Please feel free to Digg any & all of these articles. :) Thanks!
