  • The Purple Monkey Run - September 3, 2016 Alvin, TX

    9/9/2016 5:32:06 PM, by 1DAY-ATA-TIME

    I rarely run races during summer because it's too darn hot and humid in Southeastern Texas. Generally, I get my runs done early in the morning before sunrise during summer months. When the sun comes out I'm like a vampire---looking for shade. And although I'm reluctant to admit it, I just can't t... Read more

    I like to think that I am a pretty adventurous eater as far as I am able to be. I have a soy allergy, so I have to be cautious when buying snacks and processed foods. I took a trip to my local Target this week, and I found a few things that I liked, so I wanted to share! - Sriracha peas. I d... Read more
