The Daily Feed: Sites We're Surfing on 4/9

You'd think a run would give me plenty of energy to not aimlessly wander around online when I have a boatload of writing to wrap up. I definitely have the energy--thanks to Liz coaxing me out the door on what could have been one of the best mornings for running ever, no wind, followed by a refreshing Powernap+--and the writing willpower, but for once in recent times I'm finding myself connecting the work and the browsing. So here's some of my favorite reading for the day:
  • I confess that I spotted this one in a Newsweek my husband had yet to part with, but I'm obsessed with most things Olympic, especially the swimmmers, and was really surprised when a swimmer other than Michael Phelps graced the magazine's pages. Granted it's unfortunate that Jason Lezak's tale came now as opposed to August when he out-touched France's Alain Bernard for the gold medal in the 4 x 100 freestyle relay.
  • My mouth was watering over these healthy stir fry options at That's usually one of my go-to meals after a workout, but my current concoctions could definitely use a pick me up.
  • The New York Times takes a look at the presentation Chicago gave to the IOC in hopes of becoming the host city of the 2016 Summer Olympics and Paralympics.
  • If you're at all familiar with's blog, Margarita Shapes Up, there's a new blogger descending upon the Shape Up section, Karina Arrue. I'm loving the fun nutrition tips!
  • Sorry for the self promotion but a guest post I wrote for a Chicago foodie blog is up and running. Check out my review of the burger at Sola here in Chicago--this fitness fiend likes to eat too, hehe.
Now I just have to find a picture. Posted by Kate
