Running, Cycling, and Omelets

It's been way too long since my last blog post. Sorry about that. Just had blogblock for a while. Been getting parts of 2010 race schedule worked out and some tough decisions about what I am going to be doing. Also, changing some training plans to reflect the 2010 schedule. So far this is what I have. It's not 100% in stone but close to it. One major decision is whether or not to do an Ultra before the Boston Marathon the week after. Hummm. What to do?

January: Chevron Houston Marathon
February: Austin Marathon
April: Brew to Brew Ultra (44 miles) April 11th
Boston Marathon April 19th
Big Sur International Marathon April 25th
(This is part of the Boston to Big Sur Clallenge)
June:Ironman 70.3 Kansas June 6th (This would be my first Ironman)
July: RAGBRAI Bike Tour across Iowa
August: Lean Horse Trail 100 miles

That's what I have for now. Lots of training ahead in the new few months and a change in routine to do the Ultra and the Ironman.Will keep you posted on what is going on. I will really try to post more often now.

Just for fun...Had this for Christmas moring brunch with the family. We had a great time making it. Give it a try. It's an adventure.

Ziploc Omelet

Have guests write their name on a quart-size Ziploc freezer bag with permanent marker.

Crack two large eggs(large or extra-large) into the bag (not more than 2) shake to combine them.

Put out a variety of ingredients such as :cheeses, ham (whatever you want here, we used turkey sausage)onion, peppers,tomato,salsa, etc.

Each guest adds prepared ingredients of choice to their bag and shake. Make sure to get the air out of the bag and zip it up.

Place the bags into rolling boiling water for 13 minutes. you can usually cook 6-8 omelets in a large pot. For more, amke another pot of boiling water.

Open the bags and the omelet will roll out nicely. Be prepared for everyone to be amazed.

So there you have it. Give it a try and let me know how you like it.

Forward we go! May your roads and trails be happy and safe!
