Where Did MAY go?????????

I am a lot busier than I had anticipated this summer, which is a good thing!! But I still have a huge To-Do list, and haven't had a lot of time for blogging. I'm working at Clear Flour Bakery in Retail, and teaching cardio kickboxing at FitRec, as well as doing a small internship with Diet.com. I'm also trying to go to places and try out things in Boston that I haven't had time for before- a few I've checked off the list so far: a trip to Vej Naturals, Club Industry East Expo, Channel Cafe, and Bina Osteria (Thank you Clear Flour!!) I'm heading to NYC tomorrow to visit friends and family and try out some new vegan eats, which I am very excited about! I'm planning on eating and walking my way through the city once again, and SuperVegan has been super helpful!!

If you haven't yet, be sure to check out the Eat Well Guide! I added a little toolbar, but it is an indispensable guide for sustainable eating!! Their blog is fabulous and I can't count the number of times I have used their guides, especially when visiting a new city/area! It is essentially a search engine for Good Food-generating restaurant, store, catering, business results that support/serve sustainable food. I won their sustainable eating Spring Break Challenge which I was super excited about! I got a gift certificate to my favorite bulk/natural food store in Boston-Harvest Co-op and can't wait to stock up my fridge/cabinets when I get back from NYC! Thank you so much Eat Well Guide!

Next week marks the official start of my 18 week marathon training, via Hal Higdon's Novice Plan. Priyanka and I decided to stick with Novice level because 1. This is our first marathon, hence we are novices 2. She's coming off an injury and I have been doing a lot more cross-training than running lately (although i did have a nice 9 milers yesterday). Our goal=to cross the finish line! I'm not worrying about times, as long as its under 6 hrs (the cut-off) I will be escatic!!!!!!!!! Can't wait to see that finish line-and have a sexy firefighter hand me my Tiffany's necklace :)

I am loving being in Boston for the summer, but I am also excited to go Home next month! My sister just graduated High School (Hip Hip Hooray!), and I can't wait to see my family and friends from home! Plus I'm bringing my roommate and I can't wait to show her a True Wyoming experience!!! Can't wait for that Fresh air!!

And one last parting word- an ancient Cree proverb, found on the streets of Allston:

"Only when the last tree has withered, the last fish has been caught and the last river's been poisoned, will man realize we cannot eat money."

Until Next time!!!
