Ann Arbor is a great community for runners and for many local athletes, tomorrow’s 8:30 A.M. Burns Park Run is an enjoyable early-season race.
I haven’t run the Burns Park race (or any race) in years but, with the exception of the demanding Shadford hill, have enjoyed the run in the past. I must confess one favorite incentive in signing up for a race was an excuse to carb-load on pasta the night before the run.
According to the Mayo Clinic web site, however,“Carbohydrate loading isn’t necessary for … 5 or 10-kilometer runs.” Richard and I are looking for any excuse to eat a big plate of pasta, run or no-run, and that bit of information won’t hinder our carb-rich dinner plans.
Here’s a great recipe that the whole family will enjoy together as well.

Still. I could never capture Ansel Adam‘s American West no matter how many strings of cameras I roped around … Full recipe post »
Taste buds prickle; wanderlust triggered. An Argentine barbecue (asado)
enticed me to Patagonia. A friend gave me a vial of ground sumac berries--4 months later I was
waking at dawn to the "Call To Prayer" in Turkey. Porcini to Tuscany, and so on. Read more about my chronicles of
