That my dearest friend Meghann is flying to my second home to run a race that I would give anything to try racing again?!?!?!?!
(here was me in the aftermath of it when I ran the 2nd half after being injured…I looked horrible!)
I would give anything right now to have been able to train w/ her for that race…but like one of my other dearest friends Caitlin, I have run many other races that my legs have been able to get me through…and that they still work period with all the years of running I’ve been doing!!!
But, enough of me feeling sad that I can’t be there to run…
Best of luck to you on Sunday Meghann, and Bobbi too!!!!
Now to our regularly scheduled food blogging!
Yesterday was a super long day in the car trekking across the state of Florida…how I’m not going to miss these 10 hr driving days! Since I made a chocolate pumpkin loaf the other day I had leftover pumpkin and decided to use it up in a breakfast cookie…which tasted like BARF. Yes, it sure did. What a waste!
So by the time mid-morning rolled around I had to have a snack or I was going to pass out on the boat: mini clif and apple. We were out on Istakpoga Lake to radio a baby bird but he was no where to be found…so he either fledged (which we hope) or died…:(
Then while making the almost 2 hr drive to the turnpike to drive even further down to the Everglades I had my lunch: two carrots, cherries and a hummus/tomato/spinach sandwich! I love this lunch!!!
And of course I couldn’t not have dessert: chocolate chip raspberry bread. OMG so good!
We finally made it down to the Everglades after battling through all the nasty rain and I went for a walk w/ Brad to catch up over the past few days…and saw all these lovely buddies:
Hahaha…I love the sign too. And of course check out how the weather changes in the span of just over an hour:
It got nasty after that w/ the thunder and lightning (which I got video of and plan to do some cropping for pictures later!) so I settled on a fast and not-very-hearty dinner because I was still way hungry afterwards: black bean burger w/ spinach and tomato and a mango.
I had a mug of h2h w/ unsweetened Silk soymilk later..and a handful of raw cashews. That settled my hungry tummy.
Onto this morning! I woke up when everyone else did even though I was staying at the trailer to work on GIS but decided before I started I wanted to get in a run. I’m trying to get back into it and ease my legs back in pain free…keep your fingers crossed for me! I ran a total of 4.5 miles on the road and got way SWEATY and DIRTY in the process.
Ok, not very dirty…just covered in seeds; can you even see them in that picture?
By the time I cleaned up I was starving so I dove into breakfast: mashed banana mixed w/ a tablespoon of pb on a piece of raspberry bread…OMG heaven in every bite!
Ok, now I need to get back to work! I’m spending the weekend in the Everglades stuck at the trailer because we don’t have personal cars…goodness gracious what am I going to do to keep myself sane!!!???
