I am teaching my second cooking class in a few weeks with a couple of my colleagues. I am equal parts anxious and excited. Will the participants have fun? Will they like the recipes? Will they learn something new?
The class is on Valentine’s Day so we’re trying to work in some red/pink dishes. Of course I immediately thought of beets. Here are some beet recipes that caught my eye. Don’t they sound yummy?!
In other news, I’m training for a half marathon, one of my New Year Resolutions ! I am starting off pretty slowly though… the cold I got over Christmas really took a toll on me. I’m finally getting my energy fully back. Phew.
A good friend of mine who is a triathlete (or as I like to call her, triathloner) offered me a few tips in training for my first half marathon. She referred me to this website for a half marathon training guide for beginners. They also have intermediate and advanced training guides for half marathons as well as guides for other trainings.
My friend also advised me to get myself a great sports bra because I may chafe on long runs and it will hurt. She’s a big fan of Under Armour clothes and bras and Thorlo socks in case you’re interested.
Hope you’re having a nice weekend. I’ll be featuring some of my cooking class recipes soon. Stay tuned…
