I call this “Energy Chili” because it is a clean food meal that has refueled my body after many workouts and runs. With the carbs from butternut squash, the protein from the ground beef (or turkey or chicken), and the fat from added avocado, it’s a perfect and easy meal to heat up in minutes at the end of a long day.
It’s been a busy but ordinary type of week as far as training goes.

I took this picture on a night that our regularly scheduled training run was cancelled due to an ice storm several days earlier; we substituted circuit training stations instead. Because many of our participants were “iced in”, this shot only shows part of the group.
This recipe came from one of those posts that you see in Facebook, where you watch a 30 second video that makes it look so easy to put together the dish. However, there are no written directions or lists of ingredients. (Photo by the Reluctant Entertainer) Continue reading

This week is the first of seventeen weeks of training for the Pittsburgh Marathon on May 7, 2017. I really like how it corresponds to the first week of the new year, as well. Continue reading
