Crikey- what is it about vacation photos and realizing the need for body maintenance?

Sorry- you don’t get to see the inspiring photos until I have an “after” shot!

New Orleans may have done me more good than I intended… it’s photos of me are giving me a kick in the butt, that’s for sure!

Fortunately this coincides with the sun coming out here in Tracktown USA. Unfortunately, we’ve got a wedding to attend in Hawaii in only 65 days! I’ll be damned if I have another set of Hawaii pictures that fit into the negative reinforcement category. This blog may be shifting from a brownie palette to a greener outlook here.

Now where did I put my Henderson Running 101 book?

I feel your pain, sister. I was an avid runner until blitzing my knees last winter at the freakin’ gym. I still can barely jog, and certainly not every day. :(

I hear you, too — my vacation pics from a recent trip to the Yucatan have sent me straight to Cooking Light magazine.

I think weight gain is an unfortunate side effect of food blogging.

McCauli–we’re hitting Eugene in late April for two nights. What do you consider two or three can’t-miss restaurants? Any favorite wineries in the area?

You should go check out my Eugene Food Destinations post for food stuff. The Saturday Market may also be up and running by April too (it takes a break after winter). A note- if you are here the last weekend in April, the Eugene Marathon is taking place on the 29th, and may cause roads to be shut down in the heart of town. You can find a more detailed info, maps of the race routes, here.

I don’t have experience with the local wineries (though there are many, with beautiful roads to take you to them). I recommend maybe stopping in at Sundance Wine Cellars and chatting them up. They are located behind the Cafe Beanery, through its doors, across the gravel alley and past the few parking spots.

Also, since it’ll be spring time, don’t forget umbrellas…

cheers!

Thanks!

We will be there the last week but will fortunately be avoiding the weekend.

My husband’s getting a Ph.D. in CS at Georgia Tech, and we may consider moving up there for him to take a position at University of Oregon in a few years. So we might eventually be neighbors! . . . well, if you’re still there then.
