Badwater 4 Goodwater
Update

Due to shingles and sciatic nerve issues, Lisa had to end her race but not the cause.   Grant Maughan and Danny Westergaard carried on the torch with such grace and kindness. They each ran the Badwater course 2 times, and summited Mt. Whitney to total a Badwater Quad. This is what the sport of ultra running is all about.

Please support our cause for Good Water. When you drink a glass of water today or take shower think about how many you can help with even $1 and think about how many others you can tell to donate even $1. It all makes a difference, you can and do make a difference.

Recipe of the Week
Spanakopita
This week's recipe brought to you by Snowdrift Farm.  A local organic farm offering a Community Supported Agricultural Program

www.snowdriftfarm.org


Spanakopita:
 
One or two large bags of greens
 
Olive Oil

A small block of feta

 
1/2 - 1 cup ricotta or yogurt
  
2-3 cloves of garlic or a few garlic scapes
 
Filo dough - Defrosted
  
Butter OR coconut oil

Directions: Lightly blanch your greens until they are cooked enough so
you can squeeze out excess water This is where you will find you can use up
a lot of greens in one recipe! While you are waiting for the greens to cook,
melt butter or coconut oil in a pan and set aside. When greens are done, cool
under cold water or in the fridge. Then squeeze all the water out (easiest way
is by making small balls of the greens in your hands).

Sautee garlic lightly in some olive oil and add to your drained greens. Crumble in your feta and 1/2-1 cup of yogurt or ricotta (You're looking for everything to kind of stick together when you try to ball it up. Not too wet and not too dry)
 
Unroll the filo dough and lay flat next to your work area. On a large
cutting board, lay out one sheet of filo. Use a pastry brush to apply butter.
Put another layer of filo over the butter and repeat until you have four layers of filo.  Now with a sharp knife, cut your layered filo in half the long way. You will have two vertical rectangles. For smaller pastries, cut your dough into three long strips. Put 1-2 Tablespoons of mixture at the bottom of one of your rectangles.
Fold the corner edge up over the filling to meet the other side of the rectangle. You should have a triangle. Now fold your triangle with filling up the edge of your rectangle, now back across. You will continue to fold in triangles until you run out of dough (approx six folds).

Place your pastries on a greased cookie sheet. Now do the other side of your
rectangle the same way. Repeat until you run out of filling. 
  
Brush with butter then bake at 350 until they slightly brown on top and/or
crispy, probably about 35 minutes.

Finding the Right Shoe For Your Arch Type

Selecting the right running shoe for your arch type is important for injury prevention.  Your arch type typically determines your foot's pronation capabilities.  Pronation is the natural rotation of the foot after impact that dissipates shock and body weight.     

Below are the three arch types and the type of running shoe needed for each: 

NORMAL:  Normal-arched runners commonly have normal pronation and can wear just about any shoe.

HIGH:  High-arched runners often underpronate (supinate);  their feet do not roll enough and the legs absorb the extra shock.  Underpronaters should select a neutral shoe with added cushioning.

FLAT:  Flat-footed runners often overpronate; their feet roll inward increasing the risk of injury.  Runners who overpronate should select a support shoe.  Added cushioning is also beneficial.  

To determine your arch type, take the "wet test".  To learn how click HERE.
