Foot Gloves

I wanted to put this under "Gear," but I don't own it. Still, some people might be interested in these "gloves" for your feet, especially if you've ever wanted to run barefoot but didn't want to get cut up.

Why would anyone want to run barefoot? Supposedly, running in too-cushiony shoes weakens parts of the foot overtime, leaving one susceptible to injuries. Plus, I'm sure not having an extra few ounces weighing runners down is appealing enough.

I wonder if those barefoot marathon runners with blackened soles and I'm sure the calluses of a rhinocerous would ever consider these. For about $70 (less than the cost of most high-end running shoes), they'd never have to worry about glass (maybe), sticks, rocks, or animal deposits ever again!

  1. I am not a runner at all, but I think this is an amazing thing. People are bashing them because they say they are unhealthy, um hello....can someone remind them how some of our ancestors lived. And might I add, they were just fine. =D

  2. I ran a 5k recently and one of the guys that organized it was wearing these. They are all he wears and he loves them. I am considering getting a pair for myself and I'd say I'm a beginner runner.

  3. I run in them from time to time but spend more time hiking in them. I have climbed several peaks with them and they are great! I love feeling the earth underneath me without having nasty, ugly feet.

A Running Post!

Two posts in one week?  This must means that I am publishing these on an automatic schedule, since I'm finding it verrrry difficult to keep up lately.  Still, this post is going to be a fun one for me to write because it has to do with running!!

I've mentioned this here before, but sometime after the new year, I saw that Mark Zuckerberg started a "year of running" in which he'd try to run at least 365 miles this year.  It took me more than halfway through the month to get on board with this, so I was running a lot of catch up and as of last week, I'm at 179 miles for the year, which I believe leaves me in good shape because it's still early May.

Most of my miles were on the treadmill, but I'm doing more outside now, carving out paths around my hilly neighborhood.  The weather has mostly been amenable to running outdoors (for now!), though sometimes it calls for this little number from CozyPhones that "The Ukrainian" is modeling nicely since …

Detox (Macaroons)

Ahhh, the joys of processed foods.

My latest processing adventure involves detox.  For those people who listen to rap, Dr. Dre has been promising an album called Detox for about 10 years now.... I'm still waiting............................

*Ahem*

Check out these Detox Macaroon recipe from Healthy Hoggin.  I've been making many versions of macaroons, but this is my favorite in terms of flavor.

The unique thing about this (vegan) recipe is that it is 99% coconut.


The first step is to pulverize some shredded coconut into a "coconut butter."  I loved seeing it transform!  It was quite tasty in this form!

By the way, that is almond extract that you see above.  It's a lot stronger than vanilla extract and clear in color. 


Coconut butter + more shredded coconut = macaroons!

They are delicate and coconut-y without that throat-itching sensation of condensed milk that other macaroons offer. 

If you're willing to put in some effort, definitely give these flour-less ma…

2015

Starting off with a bad selfie!

I haven't had a chance to recap 2014 on here, but besides a couple of races and a trip earlier in the year (which I would link but am using my phone at the moment), 2014 was a year of baking a baby and dealing with the aftermath. I also got a cute new niece and nephew out of it, as well. Family gatherings are very hectic now!

Looking forward, I am hoping that this year will involve a return to normalcy, at least as much as can occur with a new baby. I look forward to incorporating Baby Tuesday into things that "The Ukrainian" and I used to enjoy as a party of two. I also look forward to seeing Tuesday grow and learn about the world. I am hoping to bake and cook and run again, too. The last thing I made was a pandan cake on Christmas Eve, but I wouldn't have been able to do it without help from my younger sister and a napping baby.


Blogging more often would be nice. This post in itself required multiple sittings.  I have many posts I'…
