About me

Hi there!


Thanks for stopping by my blog! Leave me a comment and let me know a little about yourself – I love to meet new people! πŸ™‚

Or, you can email me at
ahungryrunner@gmail.com if you have a question or just want to chat!

So, who am I and why am I so hungry? Β Well, I’m a runner and I like to run A LOT.


I’m usually in training for something and out running copious amounts of miles through my town. Β My sailor, however, will tell Β you I’m crazy. Β Maybe I am. Β I do enjoy running long distances, after all. Β πŸ™‚ Β And that totally explains why I am so hungry. Β I’ve got to fuel my body, both before and after, to help me cover those miles and remain standing after I’m done. Β And boy, oh boy do I like to eat!

Luckily, I also like to cook. And eat. Eating is good.Β I’m always on the hunt for something delicious and have amassed quite the recipe collection. Β One day, I’m going to have to get a room just for my cookbooks. Β Seriously. I’ve got them consolidated to one ridiculously small bookshelf and the kitchen table and the island and the counters and the dining room table, etc, etc, etc. Β Yes, they’re everywhere! Β But, they do make for great reading and I swap them out every now and then so I can get new ideas on what to make my family for mealtime, whether it’s breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Family? Β Oh yes. Β Besides the aforementioned sailor, I have two kids (Things 1 & 2),


and five (yes, 5!) pets. Β 3 cats and 2 dogs, to be precise. It’s a zoo! Β I should really charge admission.


So, anyway, because I run and work out so much (did I mention I do CrossFit? no? oh, sorry. yes, I’m one of those. And I LOVE it. And I have cool socks.), I try to make sure I eat the good stuff.


No sense in filling my body up with the bad stuff when I’m going to ask so much of it later. Β I eat pretty healthy and I force my minions (aka the family) to do the same. Β Hey, no judging, it’s good for them! Β And, because I’m always on the lookout for good stuff, I usually find new recipes that I can try and, if they’re not “healthy-ish”, I try to adjust that by using different ingredients. Β Same idea, different take. Β And then, I plan to share! Β With you! Β Oh, wait, no, I’m not going to be delivering baked goods or lasagnas or casseroles to your door. Β Sorry, I’m not in that business. Β But, if it’s a good one, I’ll share it and let you know if I changed it up any. Β And then, I’ll head back out for a run. Or to deadlift.
