A little of this and a little of that!

I have to say that I love the fact that my husband, Al, loves to cook. And, it’s pretty dang awesome that he likes to grocery shop as well. Yes, I am blessed. I say that often, but I mean it. I am not sure where I would be without him. Probably living on canned tuna, cereal, apples, bananas and frozen veggies! Not. Even. Kidding! … Continue reading A little of this and a little of that!

I. Have. Asthma. Period.

April 12. Fred Kurz 10-mile race in the Twin Cities. Worst. Time. Breathing. EVER! Around mile six, maybe even seven or eight, I started having a harder-than-usual time breathing. By mile nine, I was breathing pretty hard. Not gasping, mind you. But definitely different than my normal heavy-almost-panting-while-running breathing. I used my albuterol inhaler before the race, like I typically do any time I run … Continue reading I. Have. Asthma. Period.
