The race was women-only and billed as UBER-non

I caught a really good sale on ground turkey this week, and I've picked up several 5lb packages to portion out and freeze. Problem is, I'm not totally sure what to do with it other than make chili!

This weekend, I finished a 37mi bike ride in the big Tour de Tucson. The full ride is 106 but I did the shorter distance with my dad, who flew down from WA to do it with me.

I just spotted a great article that addresses the (not really supported) concept that eating too few calories for a long period of time will screw you up and put you into "starvation mode." It's very well-written and easy to understand.
