Thanks for stopping by Eat. Host. Run. Style. Here are a few random things about me . . .
Running is a major part of my life. The times that I run are some of my favorite hours during the week. I love knowing that every mile I complete brings me one step closer to achieving whatever goal(s) I have at the moment. And once I achieve those goals, I can set new ones and work toward them.
I have the most adorable cat. Eddie was a stray cat I adopted several years ago. He's already seven years old, but still acts like a kitten on most days.
Eddie loves running, too!
I could eat Mexican food every day. I love it all - chips and salsa, guacamole, tacos, ceviche, plantains, tres leches cake and more. My favorite place to eat Mexican in Milwaukee is Cempazuchi with Bel Air Cantina being a close second.
I love to bake. I like making sweets almost as much as I like eating them. When I have a few spare hours, there's nothing quite as satisfying as following a recipe from start to finish. A few of my favorite things to bake: Peppermint Patty Brownies, Coconut Sandwich Cookies, Nutella Cupcakes and Peanut Butter Balls.
I wish I was trilingual. I took Spanish during high school and French after college but I'm far from fluent in either. Maybe one of these days I'll start taking classes again. I've visited both countries and would love to live in either or both someday.

My favorite distance to race is a 5k. The perfect blend of speed and endurance. To race well, you need to start fast and maintain your speed through the end, unlike longer distances where you can afford to start a bit slower and build your speed through the finish line.
I'd love to hear from you! Send me an email to introduce yourself, if you have any ideas for future posts or questions about this blog.
