Sunning Running

July 6, 2010

Back in our groove :mrgreen:

~4.5 miles in the HOT HOT morning sun!

Couldn’t have done it without a little ‘ade help in my camelbak!

We slept until the sun woke us up around 7:30 and then set out on our run. Once back, I worked on smoothies for the group.

Ingredients were unknown amounts of:

  • Banana
  • 1% milk
  • Raw rolled oats
  • Vega Vanilla Almond
  • Chia seeds
  • Ice
  • Strawberries

Sadly eggs and Puffins seemed to take priority over smoothies and suddenly everyone just wanted “a taste” and I slurped up my SIAB happily solo

And example of the eggs Matt made! [He complimented with smoothie!]

I topped mine with a little granola + coconut mix I brought in a tupperware and coconut butter magic shell

These Puffin crumbs also got incorporated!

The vibe here is more relaxed – no one is rushing out to the ocean! Matt and i are going hunting for an umbrella after breakfast dishes are done.

And I still have 150 pages to read!!!

Have a great day guys :)

Those smoothies look refreshing and yummy. There’s nothing better than PB Puffins crumbs. :)


2 Pat Kilmain July 6, 2010 at 12:35 pm

I must be the only person who doesn’t like PB Puffins? :) Love the original flavor though.


3 Allie (Live Laugh Eat) July 6, 2010 at 9:01 am

Haha you sound like me when I was in high school desperately trying to read up my boring summer reading books for English class. I woulda partook in your smoothie party!


4 Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday July 6, 2010 at 9:01 am

Yikes! The weather is so painfully hot this week I don’t know how you could stand it


5 Jessica @ How Sweet July 6, 2010 at 9:01 am

I was I was right in that last picture!


6 shannon (the daily balance) July 6, 2010 at 9:02 am

those smoothies look heavenly, I would have definitely participated in the smoothie love club 😉

enjoy your day relaxing! I am more jelous than you can imagine 😉


7 Amanda @ Vegacious July 6, 2010 at 9:04 am

Nothing beats smoothies for breakfast in the summer for me!


8 Robyn @ Frugal 'n' Fit! July 6, 2010 at 9:04 am

Wow, those eggs look perfect! As does the smoothie, but I would expect nothing less :)


9 Rachel (Two Healthy Plates) July 6, 2010 at 9:04 am

Aww, so sad about the smoothies! Most people run off when I offer to make them a green monster. I actually coaxed my spinach-hating sister into trying one this past weekend and she loved it!


10 Katie July 6, 2010 at 9:05 am

Dear Kath, I am living vicariously through your blog this week. Thank you!!! :)


11 Wei-Wei July 6, 2010 at 9:06 am

Smoothies sound great 😉 I always feel like that when I make anything “healthy”. The rest of my family is skeptical and they have “just a taste”, compliment it, then go back to their own stuff :( Ah well, more for me? But not before it all goes bad! D:



12 Evan Thomas July 6, 2010 at 9:09 am

You guys look drenched! It’s def too hot to run here today


13 Beth @ Beth's Journey to Thin July 6, 2010 at 9:09 am

A smoothie after a run in the heat sounds perfect to me!


14 Meredith (Pursuing Balance) July 6, 2010 at 9:10 am

Nothing like a cold refreshing smoothie after a summer workout! I’m curious, what is the texture like with the oats and chia seeds? Hope you have another lovely day at the beach! Don’t forget the sunscreen :)


15 wishful nals July 6, 2010 at 9:11 am

looks so peaceful. have a great day!


16 Marina July 6, 2010 at 9:25 am

those smoothies look like a perfect post-run fuel on a hot day!


17 Samantha July 6, 2010 at 9:25 am

Hi, Are great harvest breads made only with sourdough leavening? And, is Dakota bread 100% ww?


18 Kath July 6, 2010 at 9:26 am

Per Matt: “Most are made with commercial yeast and are not sour and Dakota is 100% WW”


19 Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) July 6, 2010 at 9:26 am

I would have gone for the smoothie especially after you topped it with all that goodness! Enjoy your reading today…hope you find shade!


20 Courtney (Pancakes & Postcards) July 6, 2010 at 9:29 am

Those do look beautiful! Though even after all this time I still struggle with smoothie as “food” instead of smoothie as “caloric and nutritious drink to consume while also eating copious amounts of solid food at the same time”… i am working on it!


21 HeatherBakes July 6, 2010 at 9:33 am

These posts are making me miss the beach!!

I love how you guys take big family vacations- they always look like so much fun :)


22 Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg July 6, 2010 at 9:36 am

Ahhh, I just got back from a sweaty run too! Don’t you love running on vacation? Have a fun day!


23 Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter July 6, 2010 at 9:37 am

I am so jealous of your vacation. You completely deserve it Kath.


24 Jil @ Peace, Love & Munchies July 6, 2010 at 9:42 am

Mmm – those eggs look delish – nice and peppery!! And the smoothie sounds so good!


25 Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) July 6, 2010 at 9:43 am

I totally would have drank up that smoothie concoction this morning. SO HOT!! A nice cold smoothie must have been amazing after a sweaty morning run.

Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on that book!! I still haven’t read it even though it’s been sitting on my bookshelf for some time now. 😀


26 Estela @ Weekly Bite July 6, 2010 at 9:54 am

A smoothie sounds perfect after a hot run!


27 Camille July 6, 2010 at 9:55 am

Looks toasty out there! Props on a good long run!


28 Anya @ Fitness & Sunshine July 6, 2010 at 10:06 am

Those eggs do look pretty yummy :) but smoothies are great for hot weather!


29 Courtney @ Three Months July 6, 2010 at 10:07 am

The smoothie looks great. I MUST try adding oats to my smoothies!


30 Jessica @ The Process of Healing July 6, 2010 at 10:11 am

What a fabulous morning! I would’ve still had your smoothie 😉


31 Sara July 6, 2010 at 10:19 am

That smoothie looks so cool and refreshing right now- it is so hot by me!! Hope you enjoy your “rush-free” day! :)


32 Sami July 6, 2010 at 10:31 am

So sorry about your unappreciated smoothie efforts. :( Have a good day!


33 Kelsey @ CleanTeenKelsey July 6, 2010 at 10:42 am

What a bummer about that smoothie. Those people are crazy. 😛 I can’t imagine having KERF make a smoothie for me and not drinking it! Oh well, at least you can freeze the leftovers and eat them like ice cream?


34 abbi July 6, 2010 at 10:45 am

That smoothie after a hot run in the heat looks perfect!


35 MelanieF July 6, 2010 at 10:55 am

Wow! I cannot wait to be on vacation. I have 60 more days to go before our annual Florida vacation. :-(


36 Ashley July 6, 2010 at 11:03 am

Love the coconut magic shell…I need to make more! I would have devoured the smoothies!!!


37 [email protected] July 6, 2010 at 11:08 am

Yay for a morning run! Looks a fun place to run.

Again, have fun with the book.


38 Heather (Heather's Dish) July 6, 2010 at 11:20 am

hey, i’ll take one of the smoothies! :) what a gorgeous view and a fabulous run i’m sure!


39 lynn (The Actors Diet) July 6, 2010 at 11:23 am

enjoy your day, kath – sorry no one wanted to smoothie it up with you!


40 Jess @ MTL Veggie July 6, 2010 at 11:24 am

What I would give to be at the beach right now! Hope you’re able to find that umbrella! :)


41 Freya @ Brit Chick Runs July 6, 2010 at 11:26 am

I love the use of oats in smoothies – they bring them to another level 😀


42 Mary @ What's Cookin' with Mary July 6, 2010 at 11:51 am

If it weren’t so cold and dreary, I’d want a smoothie ASAP 😉 Please sun, come out!


43 Liz July 6, 2010 at 11:55 am

Aw, that last picture is beautiful! I just found your blog through Fitnessista and so far it seems pretty darn good, haha. Those smoothies looks delicious! Do you use a VitaMix Blender? I just use a normal one but it is not exactly equipped for smoothie-making.


44 Kath July 6, 2010 at 1:24 pm

Welcome!! Yes, I do use a Vitamix. Love it!


45 Elizabeth @ Eat Clean Fun July 6, 2010 at 11:58 am

The smoothie looks amazing for sure! I love the Wilmington area, my parents live there in the winter time and it is beautiful. If anyone gets the chance to travel to North Carolina Beaches I say go for it!


46 Katherine July 6, 2010 at 12:12 pm

I love that you have all the people to share a smoothie with. It is way hot to be running; you’re crazy!


47 Kaz July 6, 2010 at 12:53 pm

I can’t imagine eating eggs for breakfast on a hot day like that. That smoothie would definitely be my first choice!


48 Cynthia (It All Changes) July 6, 2010 at 1:03 pm

I admire your ability to run in the sun. I get so overheated with running in the blazing heat that I stick to the treadmill or later in the evening.

But sounds like you are having a blast.


49 Laura July 6, 2010 at 1:08 pm

Another amazing, summery looking breakfast! Yum!
Although i can’t eat them in the morning, Matt’s eggs look scrumptious xx


50 Chelsey July 6, 2010 at 1:20 pm

mmm that SIAB looked delicious!! I liked your additions!


51 Stacey @ Tipping the (Kitchen!) Scales July 6, 2010 at 3:35 pm

I would have helped you drink the smoothies! I am seeing coconut butter all over the blogosphere lately but I can’t find any (in the UK). It’s a shame because I love coconut!


52 [email protected]:// July 6, 2010 at 5:09 pm

Nothing better then a little run when vacationing, it’s so enjoyable, well maybe not for everyone.


53 Hannah July 6, 2010 at 6:53 pm

Have to say, I’d probably succumb to the Puffin love too 😛
