Within this blog, you will find a little bit of me, some tasty food ideas from restaurants around town and my own kitchen, musings on the natural world and race training topics. It's a smorgasbord really. I will post once or twice per week and welcome your comments! My work-space is my apartment or coffee shops around town. My writing and eating companions include my girl and guy friends friends around Portland and my attack cat, Napoleon. If you have met him, you understand his name. After eight years, I still don't understand him . I swim, bike, run, practice yoga, hike, work, cook, eat, sleep and repeat. That's me in a nutshell...Happy reading and eating!
