Feeling good…

… and that is a bad thing for the Brains side of the battle. Well, my tender feet are history after one night of tip-toeing around. That can’t be a good thing for my on-going battle between smart and reckless.

oh well.

Not much for tonight except for the pictures of an amazing stir fry I made on Saturday Night. Keys to the awesomeness are Fresh Garlic, Green Onions and Chilli Peppers in with the Pork, then using Fish Sauce and Soya Sauce to flavour the veggies. Put it all together and YUM! This was served over a bed of rice noodles.


The weather is turning around as we speak. after tonight’s snow, we are in for a real treat!



Sweet. going to be positively HOT!

    1. Dear BFNZ
      Ummm, did you say it was going to be hot there? Hmmm, just wondering what you think hot is.
      Your friend in Phoenix,

      Wow, I really said I was going to run that much? What was I smokin? I guess I better get on that :)

    2. Commenter Adrienne from Phoenix writes:

      just wondering what you think hot is.

      Well Adrienne from Phoenix, I guess if you are from Phoenix, you can STOP rubbing the FACT that you are from PHOENIX in our frozen FACES. HOW`S that for HOT!!!!

      Thanks again for your comments, don`t forget to tip your waitress.

      Your caring host,


    3. This stir fry looks awesome. Where do you get good fish sauce?
      Goah, now I am hungry and it is still way before sunrise. :)

    4. I don't eat fish in any way (makes me sick), but that stir fry looks great!

    5. Hey, here's a tip for you, since I noticed there was broccoli in your stir fry ...

      When you make your own stir fry, you don't have to add broccoli! That's right! It's up to you and COMPLETELY in your control.

      I figure you must not've known this because why else would you have put broccoli in there?

      My word verification word is dysidial. Is there an option I don't know of that automatically makes a blog's word verification words sesquipedalians? Because around here they always are.

    6. Ewa: I 2 store bought Fish Sauce int he fridge, I took the stronger of the 2 and watered it down a bit, seemed to make it more resaraunt style.

      Kovas: it can be made just as tasty with a good Hoisein Sauce.

      Glaven: I know right? Broccoli? The recipe called for it, so I didn't want to mess with that. And for the word verification, I am in shock you would make such allegations.

    7. I get Shelley's prize if she dies? Awesome! Well. I don't want her to die, but still. And I totally read the directions wrong. I'm training for a 10K. I didn't realize I could add up all my miles inbetween now and then. Hmmm... I may have to rethink my position.

      That stir fry looks awesome!

    8. Yum

      Love all the people who have signed up. I get 50 crossed off at once at my October 2nd 50 miler so . . . . I'm really hoping it didn't all have to be at once. Or I now look like a complete ass. Wait, I did THAT last Saturday.

    9. Woohoo! You posted my challenge in blue! Now everyone will know how awesome I am!

      I also found adding purple cabbage to a stirfry to be quite tantalizing and colourful.

    10. Hey you also linked me on the side! Love it!

    11. Lorne, not to burst your bubble, but the blue is a followed link. Click on someone else and they turn blue too! You are very special to me though!

    12. Dang yo. I thought I was awesome there for a minute. Back to my humbleness I suppose... However, I refuse to click on anyone else as my bubble does not need bursting and I remain to the fact that I am indeed awesome.

    13. First, glad your feet are already doing better :) ...but yeah, that wasn'T the best idea...that guy at the conference I went to mentioned that when our feet get cold (when running barefoot) it changes our running form because we lose feeling in the foot and can lead to be careful! :) Glad the weather will be working in your favor this week.

      That looks good...mmmmmmm

      That's a lot of us doing your virtual race. When I can finally run again...I hope to raise my mileage too :)
