An inspiring read and homemade bread

I just wanted to check in and tell you to read this inspiring book (and to make this homemade bread, more below). If you're a runner this book is a must. And if you need some motivation or if you just like great stories, this is for you. I spent 3 days over the holiday devouring this book. It made me want to throw off my shoes, hit the trails, and run for hours and hours.

If you've already read it or maybe you've been looking for an easy, tasty bread recipe, then try Heidi's oat soda bread recipe.
It's excellent right alongside that bowl of soup or smeared with jam for a snack. It's not fussy. It doesn't require a lot of ingredients or mad baking skills, and it can be ready within an hour or so. You probably have all the ingredients on hand already. If you don't have buttermilk, make your own by adding 1 tbsp of lemon or vinegar to 1 cup of milk (non-dairy works too). Oh if you don't have oats, try her similar six-seed soda bread. Your friends will be impressed.
Both book and bread would make excellent Christmas gifts. Who can resist a warm slice of homemade bread?
