1.) What is the difference between using fresh herbs vs. dried herbs? I never know, or if I can substitute one for another in a recipe or if that will sacrifice the flavor. Or how about sea salt vs. salt? Or Stevia vs. sugar?v What's the difference there? Anything, anyone?
2.) Speaking of Stevia I won a Stevia giveaway from Jennifer at A Knack For Nutrition! First thing I'm going to do with it is try to make some sweet toasted almonds, like my spicy toasted almonds... can't wait!
3.) Let's just say I want one of these....
I found this on pintrest and am in love with it!
3.65 mile run
Tomorrow I'm hoping I can go get a membership from the YMCA so I can do some classes and lift weights since I cannot lift and do classes at the university for free this summer and I really have not been in a gym since I've been running outside and using my apartment "gym" for the past two weeks. Bummer dude!

I have been needing to find a race for myself, to get my motivation to train and run back to the level it was at. Tonight I did a little research and here are the possible races that I have found...
This is one that I will be doing for sure, it is a fundraising event for a program called WYSP. WYSP is a FREE sports, education, leadership camp for children ages 10-16. This is a phenomenal program that used to be nation wide, but funding has been cut since those year, now it is run solely based on donations,sponsorships and fundraising opportunities like this!
I have never run this one before, nor have I done a 10K, I thought a middle distance run in my hometown would be fun.
Lucky us, the home of Leinenkugel's is just down the road from my hometown! Why not get a good run in and have some beer at the end?!
Another YMCA sponsored event comin' at you! This one is held in La Crosse, there is a possibility that one of my friends might be running it as well so it may be on the "must run" list.
This is the one I am most excited about because I have heard wonderful things about the Rock 'N' Roll Marathon Series and because it is in New Orleans and I love that city! Oh yeah, and it would be my first full marathon!
All of these races are "funds/job pending", especially the Rock 'N' Roll one, since it is the most expensive one. I wish I had all the money in the world right now to enter into tons of races, but I do not :( So if you have any opinions about any of these races let me know! Or if you are running one of these let me know that too! That way if I have to pick and choose I can pick the best ones! Thanks for the help guys!
