What does a runner do on her double nickel birthday when it falls on a Sunday and there is a local half marathon nearby? Run of course.
Does the title of this post sound familiar to you? I kind of hope so because that means you’re following me on my blog. However, in case you don’t remember, I made a delicious Peaches & Cream Smoothie last summer when Colorado Peaches were in season. I have such good news for you! It’s not quite Colorado peach season but you’re definitely in for a real TREAT!
Are you jumping out of bed every morning excited to pound the pavement? You’re ready to knock out your run with no limitations…including the weather, RIGHT?!
Lately I have been seeing some great memories popping up on my Facebook feed from our trips to Italy. I do love that place and can’t wait to go back. One thing I did each time we returned was try to re-create different pasta dishes that we enjoyed.
My husband and I just returned from an amazing 5 star Dream Trip that I earned through my Shaklee Business. It was truly a remarkable trip and I would love to highlight just a few of my favorite memories.
For those of you who have been following my running journey via Heart Rate Training, you are probably familiar with the EAT workout. I am currently in my second round of Heart Rate Training and I am definitely still learning. Since I have been running full marathons both Spring and Fall for the last several years, I decided it was time I take a much needed break till fall. So later this Spring I hope to run a half marathon for fun using Heart Rate Training.
Apricots and Almond Butter. Why didn’t I ever think of this before? Most often I use dates when I whip up these tasty energizing protein bites, but as I was going through my super food cupboard, I found a surplus of these delicious apricots. Both dates and apricots are natural sweeteners and they both pair well with almond butter so I decided to play around with my favorite protein bite recipe.
Here I am at my desk, sipping on my morning Bullet Proof Coffee from my new mug that I earned after the Securian Winter Run. As I look at this new favorite mug, I realize I have not blogged about a race recently. Heck, I have been a bit more quiet than usual lately, but my house is upside-down in the middle of a re-model, my mom has been under the weather for a couple weeks, and I am super busy with my work.
Living here in Minnesota sometimes makes running outside a bit difficult and often times dangerous. With wind chills way below zero, 40 below to be exact, hill sprints outside today seemed almost impossible.
