Food and running with friends

I have been making a lot of yummy open faced sandwiches lately.  I use my grocery bakery's multi-grain panini bread and toast it.  Then most time I will smash about a half or 1/4 of an avocado on top...then I like to add different things on to that.  One day it was strawberries, goat cheese and arugula! Sooo tasty.

Another day I do what a call and "pan scramble" and just crack an egg into an already hot pan and scramble with a fork as it cooks. This time I sauteed some baby spinach first then cracked the egg in and scrambled it all together.  Topped with a really juicy farmer's market tomato.  These things are awesome.

Speaking of Farmer's Markets.....the running group I am a part of likes to meet there for a group run on Saturday mornings and then, those of us who want to, shop the market afterwards.  My boys love it because I bring them back a ginormous cinnamon roll for breakfast. This time of  year the tomatoes are so perfect and delicious. I should have bought more than two!  Anyway, running with friends before these Farmer's market sprees has become something I really look forward to throughout the summer and beginning of the fall months.  The trail that we run there is very shady so it allows an otherwise uncomfortably hot day to be somewhat bearable.  I love my running friends!

This weekend, we have planned a group run in DC.  Although we have to get up early to beat the crowds, it is so worth it to be able to run the monuments and chat with friends.  We have a blast!

Ragnar Richmond Recap!

First Ragnar Trail relay is in the books and boy, was it an adventure!  Notice I said, "first"...I had originally thought I was "one and done" with these things (as I am with the full marathon) however, I think I could enjoy another go of one. Definitely a fan of the trail version and not interested in a road Ragnar though (the thought of sleeping in a van horrifies me more than camping!).  I think I need to wait til 2019 (or even 2020 ) though - not ready to train for another in 2018!  Gotta let the paint dry on this one...So, here's a detailed recap of our adventure:

Thursday 3pm-ish: 4 of us drove down to Richmond with all of the camping gear in order to set up our site and get checked in.  This was a great plan because we were able to scout out a site and set up before the rest of the team arrived the following morning. Our start time was one of the earlier times on Friday (10am) so we didn't want to be worried about setting up camp and then running our…

Brand New!

It has been so long since I've posted on my blog that I hardly even know where to begin. First of all - Summertime Shape up - which was my last post here, was way more than that!  I finished my 80 day Obsession last week and have to say that I feel completely transformed. It has not only changed my body composition from flabby to firm, but also I have entirely new outlook and mindset when it comes to my nutrition. For YEARS I have been running and exercising until the cows come home and have been in a plateau as far as my weight and mentality are concerned.  I started out this summer by going ALL IN on this Beachbody program, 80 Day Obsession. And by "all in" I mean, not just doing the exercise portion (which is what I have done in the past when doing these programs) but also drinking Shakeology each day, and using the colored portion containers religiously.  I was determined to make a change because what I had been doing was not working!  You cannot just work out or r…

New running socks review!

Today I tested out abother pair of procompresion socks.  I have always worn Feetures and still will but these will be my new go-to pair...luckily they came in a two pack!  They are seamless and so soft and have special areas that are more cushioned (right where I normally get blisters). I am excited to try them out on a longer run!
