    It was good! You slit the checked breast to make a pocket, add a mixture of slivered almonds, dried apricots, and goat cheese. Then you coat with a mixture of slivered almonds and bread crumbs, sauté for 4 min per side, then bake for another 15 min. The recipe called for making a mint and almond pesto, but I couldn't get mint. I ended up adding a tbsp of regular basil pesto. (Enough to complement, not overwhelm, the flavor). Much better received than the last new recipe I tried!

    Well.... Unfortunately, it looks like I'll be waiting until 2015 to run the Robie Creek HM. I was checking out my calendar and realized that Easter is the day after Robie Creek:( I checked on flights to see if I could still make it home late Saturday night, but no luck. Before I know it, my kiddos will be out of the "egg-hunting" excitement phase, but for now I'm soaking up all the kid-magic holidays that I can and don't want to miss any of it.

    I did find a local HM that is on the same date. It's also a hilly trail run in Carson City called "Escape from Prison Hill". So, now my honest HM training begins.

    Good luck on getting registered this weekend for Robie Creek!

    Hello - thanks for your comment on my status regarding my new shoes:)

    I've been running in the new balance minimus 10 for about a year now - and loved their feel. They will still be my primary road shoe, but the Altra zero drop Lone Peak 1.5 are now my "go-to" shoe anytime I plan to run trails. I tried out several shoes at our local running shoe store, and these felt the most similar to my NB. They are a little stiffer, but for the terrain I'm using them in - it's perfect. I couldn't believe that during my last rocky trail run, I did not feel any of the rocks. Did you see the picture I posted of the trail I ran? It's full of really sharp "shale". You should check out Altra's website and watch their video on the Lone Peak - it's pretty cool.

    My main motivation for getting new shoes was to comfort the soles of my feet when running on rocky terrain. Last year's trail half-marathon that I did hurt my feet so badly that I could hardly walk for several weeks (and I believe Robie Creek will be just as rocky or more so:).

    BTW - as far as sizing, I wear an 11 in my NB and the 11's in Altra are a perfect fit.

    Good luck running and training for Robie Creek! Maybe I'll see you there:)
