Granola Recipe

I am (hopefully) (maybe) (possibly) going to make Granola tonight.

Jen wishes she could, too. But she is waiting for my recipe. Grandma Janelle's recipe, that is. So I thought I would share it with all of you. Because I know you are going to love it once you put the time into making it.

Here it is:

18 c. oats
2 c. wheat germ
nuts (I use almonds)
1 1/2 c. oil
1 3/4 c. honey
2 T. vanilla

Heat the oil and honey together. Add the vanilla. Pour over oats. Mix thoroughly.
Spread a 1/2 inch layer on a cookie sheet. Bake at 300 for about 30 minutes. Or until lightly browned. Stir once during the 30 minutes.

Have fun! It is a delicious basic recipe to which you can add all kinds of other yummy stuff.

There is only one problem with having this granola in my pantry:
I will eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and my midnight snack.
And that is a BIG problem.

RTTC - Sonja Wieck - New Coach!

I've known Sonja Wieck for a while. Scratch that. She has known me for a while. I have known (about) her for years. Can't remember how I found her blog but I did and couldn't stop reading. Not (only) because she has been at the very top of our age group for years and I wanted to find out her secrets to being fast and successful but because she has such good insights into all aspects of life and can express my exact feelings better than I can myself at times! We have had some good battles out there on race day and, whenever she is spectating a race that I am competing in, I breathe a sigh of relief: Someone out there is going to know JUST what I will need to hear! So, yes, I love that girl! 

I caught glimpses of her building this coaching business and I knew that it was going to be good. Really good. Sonja doesn't do things half-heartedly. When she is in. She is ALL IN. I was happy with my coach - Liz Waterstraat/Multipart Mastery - in 2016 and was planning on continui…


Can we move here already?  I love this place. 
I raced again. After a 10-month hiatus from racing due to injury, I stepped up to the starting line of the St. George Half Marathon curious to see what my body and mind had to give. Usually running 13.1 miles isn't a big deal for me but after being sidelined for so long and missing the entire 2016 season (except Oceanside which I probably should've missed), I've had a lot of questions swirling around in my head regarding this year: What will it take to be truly healthy? Will I ever be fit again? Can my body handle racing in 2017? Do I still want to race? What if my competitive fire is gone? Am I ready for a possible setback? What if I fail again? I know failing doesn't make me a failure. But what about repeatedly failing? Does that make me a failure? Most of these questions I won't have an answer to until I give it a try. Even then some might go unanswered and that's ok. Probably the one I have asked myself the mos…

Camping Trip - Big Sur - CA

Andrew Molera State Park - our paradise for a week
After it became clear that we would most likely be in Utah all summer, I got a bit antsy and really wanted to go on a family vacation. We went camping in Moab in March and it was great fun. Since I am not training or racing, we might as well go on a road trip to California and camp by the beach for a while! Easier said than done because, of course, we were way too late to get any decent spot anywhere along the coast. Everything bookable was booked. We did a bunch of research and found a little campground in Andrew Molera State Park that fit our (very small) budget and was first-come first-served. Perfect! So we mapped out a plan, loaded up the car, and took off for 10 days! 
Not exactly traveling lightly. That road bike (mine) was solely for commuting purposes. 
Traveling from Provo up to Salt Lake City and then west on I-80, our first stop was Donner Lake up by Lake Tahoe/Truckee. I love Lake Tahoe but I have also come to really like …
