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!!!

  1. Toby looks like a great stand-in Valentine. 🙂 Look at you, playin’ the guys!

  2. I think you have to train a dog to run the same way a person would train. Right now Murphy can only run about 1.5 miles. After that he starts trying to sniff everything around in an attempt to get me to walk!

  3. Toby looks so sweet! Happy Valentine’s Day!
