I can’t believe I ran 8 miles this morning!! They were eight greight miles too! I don’t get many chances to run with Meghann and Sarah and when I realized Meghann‘s training plan had 8 scheduled for today, it was the perfect chance for me to jump in. I’m hoping to increase my mileage slowly anyways to hopefully run a longer race in the spring. I told them I was a maybe last night – my stomach was full and body not primed for distance. But after a great night’s sleep, I was surprised with how good I felt when I got up.
Pre-run fuel: coconut water and a banana with Cinnamon Vanilla Sunflower Butter
We buzzed across the UVA grounds through neighborhoods, downtown and back, covering just over 8 miles. They went by FAST! Wheeee!!!
Tomorrow’s gonna be a good ole rest day : )
We got back just in time for quick showers and another round of house guests for breakfast!
The Party Continues
How do you make KERF oatmeal for 12?
I think I added a bit too much salt, but otherwise, the recipe is great for a crowd. Just add all ingredients to the pot and stir over medium heat until it’s nice and thick.
The addition of pumpkin to the whipped banana chia was unanimous!
Pick a bowl, any bowl
I went crazy with toppings – so many choices!!!
- Pumpkin butter
- Coconut butter
- TJ’s PB
- Hazelnut butter
- Half a gingerbread cookie
I think I’m full until dinner!
The Agenda includes housecleaning, playing with my remaining guests and a trip to the Richmond Airport (3 hours, round trip).
Thanks to all who helped me celebrate this weekend!
