Nahant 30k

On Sunday, we ran the Nahant 30k (18.6 mi). It was our first time going to Nahant, and you can see the lovely scenery in the picture below. The weather was very windy, rainy, and pretty cold. We had NO IDEA how hilly this race was going to be, but WOW it was a killer. Steep hills, long hills, but a great training run. Can't wait for next year.

Lots of big news in the coming week(s). Ryan's Team MGD 64 sponsorship begins. FREE BEER! and Miss Bethany's big purchase . . . Stay tuned for pics. :-)

Clean Eating

Growing my own CLEAN organic tomatoes! Yum!

The amazing results of clean eating. (Ryan is still working on his 6-pack.)

If anyone has any questions or comments or is just curious about 'clean eating', please feel free to ask. It truly is the way to go, and makes you feel great! And just look at the results! Who could argue with that ;-)

Our new apt couldn't be in a better location, on a nice street located right near the Prudential Center, in the heart of Boston. A third of a mile from the beautiful Charles River, and a third of a mile to the gym.
