The Daily Feed: Sites We're Surfing on 3/20

I'm having more of a web-surfing morning than a writing one, so here are some of the sites I've been perusing. Check 'em out:
  • I talked about the release of the new Utah Ironman yesterday, but found out even more Ironman news when I went to the event's website. Ironman, are you trying to tell me something? One of the 70.3 races now has slots available to qualify for Kona. Not that I stand a chance in the shorter distance or reaching the top of my age group, but I was considering racing the Rhode Island 70.3 race on July 12.
  • Adidas just released its gear for the Boston Marathon. Oh how I wish I were going, the jackets and shirts are awesome and in blue, my favorite color. Not that I didn't like the past offerings but doing this online browsing makes me what to get back there even more. Liz, you have to score one of those jackets when you're there next month!
  • With all the penny-pinching we're doing these days, I was thrilled to find suggestions for healthy snacks on the cheap from Rodale. They're simple and sound easy to make.
  • I'm still writing some posts about my trip to Keystone, but I was yearning for skiing with the return of cold weather to Chicago, I was checking out ski country. Spring break deals abound at the resorts this season--Keystone included--and festival season kicks off too. If you can plan a last-minute trip to the mountains, head to Keystone's Blues and BBQ Festival in the River Run Village on March 28. Expect more on the upcoming festival season--I've been browsing too much and exciting myself over skiing and sun.
  • Speaking of skiing, the ski helmet debate has returned after the untimely and shocking death of Natasha Richardson on the slopes. I'm still puzzled as to how it all happened and could happen since she was with an instructor on a beginner slope, not messing around in the trees or hucking cliffs.
  • After three months of no running, I could use this tip on spring running from FitSugar. I think I might break out the running gear this weekend and test my legs before I burn out at next Sunday's Shamrock Shuffle.

  1. Yeah, there's a fleece and two tees I'm seriously coveting. :)
