Run, Refuel, Relax

This morning was a nice long 10 mile run. I was a little worried about it since I was sick last week and didn’t get to run but it went pretty well. I ran down to a nature preserve near here (Hemlock Bluff), ran a few miles on the trails, then ran home. Mentally, it was great to have a destination and know that once I was done, I just had to run home (even if that was 4 miles away!). I like doing stuff like that on runs so it seems shorter.

I also listened to some This American Life podcasts which I LOVE! Seriously, if you’ve never heard these, go to their website and listen to some. They’re stories about people in America. The one I listened to today was from before the inauguration and they interviewed a bunch of different people. Some kids that wrote letters to the prez, people in the military etc. The letters from the little kids made me tear up!

When I got home I promptly showered and refueled!


  • 1/2 c. oatmeal
  • 2 scoops pumpkin
  • some frozen strawberries
  • dried cranberries
  • unsweetened organic coconut
  • TJ’s fiber cereal

So good. A little later I had an apple with PB. I forgot how much I love that combo!

As I mentioned before, James works all day long so Toby is my current Valentine IMG_0795

Love him.

Does anyone know how long is a safe distance to run with a dog? I didn’t take Toby this morning because 10 miles just seems like too much for his little body! The most he’s run with me is probably 6 or 7.

I’m in the process of making a few treats which I will post later 😉

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
