Blissfully mild January weather has lulled me into thinking that winter might have forgotten about us this year. Frostbitten fingers and long slogs through snow have been replaced by raincoats and slogs through muddy puddles. Not that the South Bend permacloud, wind, and drizzly days are anything to get hella jazzed about, but we’re usually up to our eyeballs in snow and ice this time of year.
News flash: Winter is coming, bitches.
With the snowflakes flying and Jack Frost slapping me in the face once again I’ve been returning to recipes that fill me up and defrost my frozen heart post-run. And nothing does that quite like a big pot full of delicious soup.
I’m really bad at writing “About Me” posts. It seems like an exercise in shameless self-promotion, and turns out more cringe-worthy than an episode of The Bachelor.
Damn it. I’ve had a blog for two seconds and I’ve already mentioned The Bachelor. We’re off to a fantastic start.
Despite my aversion to awkward introductions, I figure that I need to write a proper post welcoming readers to the site and giving y’all an idea of what’s going on here. Primarily, this website is a way for me to share my love of (read: obsession with) running, my passion for cooking, and random thoughts on life. Secondly, and probably more importantly, it’s a requirement for my journalism course to make semi-regular posts. This allows me to be a student-athlete, and therefore support my continued love of (read: obsession with) running.
