Monthly marathon race report: Hyannis marathon

In 2017, I'm running 1 marathon each month. 

My February marathon this year is one of the most picturesque races I've ever done. The marathon course is 2 loops and passes by the beautiful beaches of Cape Cod.

  • Hyannis is an awesome little race & town in the Cape Cod area
  • Very scenic, mostly flat course along the beach
  • You get a nice medal!
  • You can find chowder and cod EVERYWHERE 
  • Keltic Kitchen has amazing french toast (I'm not even a huge french toast fan) 
  • Everyone we met in Cape Cod was nice 
  • Both the marathon and half marathon courses are USATF certified
  • Find about them and put this race on your calendar for next year: http://hyannismarathon.com/

Day 10 progress: Growing broccoli microgreens

Demo of the LED grow lamps. I run these for a few hours a day to supplement the day light the plants get.

I've started growing more types of microgreens indoors in our NYC home because we want to grow more of our own food. It's healthier, cheaper, and easy. All you need:

  • Inexpensive grow trays
  • Grow medium (I prefer soil free)
  • Good organic seeds from a reputable source
  • Water
  • Light (window most of the year, and for the winter I have grow lights)
  • 10-14 days of care
