Two 5Ks Completed!


Tonight, my daughter and I completed our first official 5K in nearby Honeoye Falls! My wife and parents came out to cheer us on — it has been great having their support and encouragement.¬†Thankfully, the rain ended up holding off, and we even enjoyed a root beer float afterwards with our favorite root beer, which is made right there in Honeoye Falls.

A month ago, we ran our first 5K, a runDisney Virtual Running Short 5K (you run whenever/wherever you want and submit your time).

Note the fantastic medals that my wife surprised us with at the end of the race!

It’s hard to believe that just three months ago we started training. I’m so proud that my daughter has stuck with this, even after training sessions when it has been difficult. It was fantastic to be able to share my first 5K experiences with her! Our next planned event is a few months away, right before Halloween (we have to start thinking of costumes to wear for that one!).


Rosemary Cold Brew Coffee


This weekend, I decided to make some rosemary-infused cold brew coffee (thanks to my sister for the idea!). It was quite simple. When adding 80g of medium roast Columbian beans from local roaster Union Place Coffee Roasters, I also added the leaves from half of a sprig of fresh rosemary (2g). I let it sit on the counter for around 20 hours.

This morning I tried it for the first time. The rosemary flavor and aroma really comes through!
