On May 20, 2012 I finished my first half marathon and running was all I cared about. A year has gone by and on May 18, 2013, I competed in my first individual CrossFit Competition and although I still love to run, CrossFit is my new passion. Either way there are two things I have learned over the past year. Signing up for a race, or a competition keeps me motivated and keeps my butt off of the couch and in the gym, and second- being part of a running community or a CrossFit community has made my life better, and I have realized that the friends I make in an active community are great friends to have around because it promotes a healthy lifestyle.
I am happy for the friends I have made, and the races/competitions I have completed.. And there is no stopping any time soon.
I have found the perfect way to cook a hard boiled egg. After countless hours on pintrest (okay maybe I am exaggerating), I got the best recipe for cooking a hard boiled egg from a woman at work- and it is flawless. I am in Colorado, so someone who is reading this at sea level may not get the same results, but here is what I need and do:
- Place the eggs in a large pot, and cover with cold tap water
- Put the pot with the eggs on the stove top, add a dash of salt to the water and turn the burner up
- Cover the pot
- Get the water to boil
- Once the water is boiling, turn down the burner to medium, allowing it to “barely boil”
- Set a timer for 20 minutes
- When the timer goes off, take the lid off, turn the burner off and let the eggs sit there for another 20 minutes
- Rinse eggs with cold water, and place in the fridge.
Now- here is the trick to the perfect way to PEEL the hard boiled egg:
- Hit the bottom of the egg pretty hard against the counter top (or any flat surface) so that it creates a bubble affect and pushes air through the entire egg.
- Peel away
