Anybody else eating and enjoying lots of zucchini? At our Saturday market one woman has been packaging mixed zucchini with garlic and an onion and vacuum sealing it.
Do you have any wonderful summertime recipes you'd like to share?
Make it a healthy week!

I haven't posted much here but have been staying on track of my half marathon training goals.
A Sunday long run instead of Saturday.
1200x4 intervals at the gym
Mid week, mid length run.
I've been trying to eat healthy and will be sad when all the wonderful summer fruit and veggies will be no more. I'm especially enjoying watermelon!
Have a great weekend.

Every couple of years we like to take a family rafting trip. This year hubby couldn't come because of a last minute scheduling conflict, We were bummed, but managed to find a friend who wanted to join in.
This is on the Deschutes River and less than an hour from our hometown.
The weather was a balmy 91 degrees so it was a great day to be on the river.
If you've never been river rafting I'd highly recommend it!
Going backwards to the weekend, we are trying to enjoy any free time we have. The weather has been amazing and autumn will be here before you know it.
This cedar tree was huge! I love being in the forest!!
Picnic lunch on the tailgate: hummus, tzatziki, pita bread, greek olives, feta cheese, veggies and curry chicken. The fresh air makes it taste even better!!
I hope you are finding outdoor adventures in your life!!

Last weekend we got away, but we always make opportunities to keep moving no matter where we are.
I'm lucky my husband didn't mind wandering the beach while I ran.
Keep on Moving!

On our way back from camping we stopped for another beautiful hike I had read about.
It was a very hot hike even next to the river. Thankfully is was only a few miles.
Have a safe and happy 4th of July!

We got a rare weekend open so we made a quick reservation for a camp spot and left town.
Don't you love the name of this campground?
Of course, hiking was on the agenda.
As far as I'm concerned, there isn't much better than getting out in nature. (although a hot shower is a close second!)

We are big Seahawks fans and had to capture this to send to my hubby.
Glass flowers outside the glass museum
The ever popular space needle. Look at that sky!
Don't we look fresh and ready to go?!
We are getting closer to the start line!
And we are off!
There were some awesome diversions.
Run Happy! Yea!
I swiped this photo online but it was my favorite stretch on the race. Mile 7 was lined with flags representing members of our military who have sacrificed their life for our country. It was shady and right next to Lake Washington.
It was fairly uneventful until mile 11 and 12. We were running on the freeway, it was hot and I was running out of steam.
This is how I pretended to feel.
This is actually how I felt!
I was not expecting my son to drive up from Portland to see me at the finish line, but here he is with this great sign. It got me over the last yards!
It's a little like having a baby....once it is over you forget how lousy you felt! LOL
Thanks Juliann and Laurie for making some fun memories!!
