I was looking through photos when I came across a bunch for a blog post I never wrote. Whoops! Better late than never, right? This recipe is for a super healthy, super easy salad. I made it when I was in Michigan for Christmas. Since it’s not Read the rest of this entry »
We’re already almost half a month into 2015 (can you believe it?), but I need to do one big, final reflection on 2014.

I’ve been lucky: thanks to an awesome schedule, amazing supporters and donors that help with my fundraising, and my own passion and drive, I’ve competed in every stair race that I’ve wanted to. I’ve done 14 so far!
