Running Visor

I know I get a lot of sun while I run (you should should not see my shorts line) especially on my face.

The other week we (Molly, my gym buddy, Margo, my yoga instructor-who actually reminds me so much of my amazing Luna boss and I love them both) were chatting after yoga and Margo started saying how I need to protect my face.  Which is not the first time I've heard that, but usually I say I don't want to wear sunscreen because I don't want to get it in my eyes the entire time and the person that told me to put on sunscreen has no response.  

Margo had a response.  She said to wear a hat or visor.  

I asked Karen if she had any visors around that she doesn't use and she brought me one.  Saturday I gave it a try for the first time for my 16 mile run.  It was a perfect day in Chicago:  beautiful sunshine, perfect breeze.
After a stressful week, which didn't include much sleep, I tried to play catch-up Friday night, but I think most of all this run was exactly what I needed.
heyyyyyy selfie
*i got to represent the cards
*it kept some sweat out of my eyes
*i think it protected some of my face from the sun

*i have to get used to it.
*it rubbed on my left ear.  why did it rub on my left ear?  i don't know.
*maybe I should put some sunscreen on my nose.  that was the main reason i wore the hat & i'm not sure it actually covered my nose at all.

I still think it's good & I'm going to stick with it.


  1. Thoughts: you could wear sunscreen everywhere from below your eyes. And wear a visor. That way no skin cancer + no sunscreen in your eyes.

    Why it rubbed your left ear: All human beings are asymmetrical - which is why every set of shoes is slightly misfit on one foot, every spaghetti strap top falls of one shoulder. If you think about it too much it drives you crazy and you start feeling lop-sided. Maybe that's just me.

  2. Wealth of information you are!

Veggie Tinga

I made Vegetarian Tinga for a mexican pot luck I went to on Tuesday.

Many people have never heard of Tinga, let alone knowing you can make it vegetarian style.  You absolutely can!  And it's so easy.

Traditional tinga is made of shredded chicken with chipotle flavoring.  I used cabbage instead of the chicken.

I looked at a lot of different recipes online, but couldn't find a recipe for the veggie tinga I had in mind, so I ended up combining the guidelines of those recipes and making my own.

Here's what I did:

1 onion
1 head of cabbage
1 7oz. can chipotle (the peppers in adobo sauce)
5 ish roma tomatoes
olive oil

-Saute onion in olive oil.
-Chop cabbage (I used youtube to help me figure out the best way to do that) add to onion and saute.
-Blend the chipotle and tomatoes in blender.
Note:  Some people only like to add the sauce from the chipotle peppers.  I added the entire can (including the peppers themselves).  It's up to you depending on how spicy you want it.  (I like my food s…


*Karen tells me that is not what I'm supposed to say, but it makes sense in my head...

Saturday I was in San Antonio for work, I did get to hang out with a friend while I was in town so that definitely made the trip better, combined with the fact that the volunteers there are just wonderful.

I knew Sunday was going to be overwhelming before I left on Friday.  I always write lists when I'm overwhelmed, I wrote a list.  (Even though I hardly referenced it on Sunday.)  Just writing it down helps me feel better.

Sunday we registered for at two places, starting at 9am.  When we finished the second one (which we were both dragging ourselves through) it felt like it was time for was 2pm.  Guys, this experience brought so much clarity to people's registerys.  I would not necessarily say it was a fun experience.  And I am very happy Mike seems to have a vision because we would limit the insane number of options down to a couple options together and then I would say I don'…


I said when I turned 30 in January I was going to start using moisturizer.  Now, 6 months later, I can say I've kind of achieved the goal, but not really...

I have a moisturizer from several years ago, which I received as a Christmas gift.  I used it off and on over the years, mostly off.  I've probably used it more this year than ever before, granted the bar was very low.

I don't like it though.  I don't like the smell or really how it feels either.

Then I heard True Botanicals released a lower-priced Basics collection designed for younger skin, technically for people in their 20s, but whatever.  I decided to try their hydrating oil (the smallest one) to see if I am able to be consistent with use.

First impression: I'm still figuring out how much to use, but I love the smell.
