Spit Fire: As the best value sprint spike on the market, the Spitfire is the spike that’s sure to get you to the finish line faster than ever.
Weight: 5.1 oz.

Velocity: If it's your first track season and you want to try everything from the 100 to the mile, with a long jump in between, then the Velocity is the right spike for you.

Rave Run

We enjoy the various paths and vineyards in and around Napa, and we want to share some of the best running routes in the area! February's Rave Run is:
 
Stanly Lane
 
Located one stop light west of the Highway 29/Sonoma Highway intersection is the trailhead for Stanly Lane. Head south from the parking lot on the old highway which is now dedicated to foot traffic and bikers. You will find yourself surrounded by eucalyptus groves and eventually make your way to Stanly Cross Roads and turn west into the beautiful vineyards. To run 4 miles round trip, turn back once you reach the end of the vineyard. To run 10 kilometers round trip, continue onto Cuttings Wharf Rd and follow it south to the river. Turn around at the boat ramp parking lot.

Valentine's Recipe
Flourless Chocolate Cake

Ingredients:
1/2 Cup Water
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
3/4 Cup White Sugar
18 (1 ounce) squares bittersweet chocolate
1 Cup unsalted Butter
6 Eggs
Fresh Raspberries (optional)

Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Grease one 10 inch round cake pan and set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat combine the water, salt and sugar. Stir until completely dissolved and set aside.
  3. Either in the top half of a double boiler or in a microwave oven melt the bittersweet chocolate. Pour the chocolate into the bowl of an electric mixer.
  4. Cut the butter into pieces and beat the butter into the chocolate, 1 piece at a time. Beat in the hot sugar-water. Slowly beat in the eggs, one at a time.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Have a pan larger than the cake pan ready, put the cake pan in the larger pan and fill the pan with boiling water halfway up the sides of the cake pan.
  6. Bake cake in the water bath at 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) for 45 minutes. The center will still look wet. Chill cake overnight in the pan. To unmold, dip the bottom of the cake pan in hot water for 10 seconds and invert onto a serving plate.
