(Demi + oco)
For various reasons, my girlfriends were unable to make our Monday run. It was just me and the guys for 6 miles…
Followed by 4 more solo miles. #NeverMissAMonday
Jason cancelled a work trip at the last minute, so I met him for a lunch date! A salad with a side of sweet potato fries is the perfect combo!
My house smells amazing right now from these lilies. Aren’t they pretty?!
In honor of my first year of blogging, we had the yummiest mini vegan strawberry cheesecakes. They were SO good! I could have eaten 5 of them.
It was time for the dreaded time trial again. We do two trials during the Fleet Feet summer speed session. 5 weeks ago, I ran a 6:29 (3 days after a 50k). I know it’s silly, but I still get so nervous before time trials…mostly because I know it’s going to hurt!
Today, I ran a 6:19…a new PR for me!!! My previous best was a 6:20.
Saucony came out to the track and brought all sorts of goodies!
My girlfriend Shyla (in the boot pictured above) not only came out to cheer us on, but also brought me Pumpkin Spice Cookies!! Y’all, I know it’s early, but Fall and all things pumpkin are coming!!!
A bunch of our group went to breakfast afterwards to celebrate surviving another time trial. I wore my new Distance Makes the Heart Grow Stronger tank…a great tank for a great cause!! Run 4 Others is selling these to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital!
I had a little vegan chocolate cake (at breakfast) to celebrate my 1 year blogiversary! Yes, I mostly just ate the frosting off of the top!
I came home to another post-it from Jason.
After breakfast cake, I had an acai bowl for lunch…
and a smoothie from Juice Bar for my afternoon snack!
Here’s a list of What’s in Season in August…bring on the Okra!!!
Anyone else eat just the frosting off of their cake?
What’s your go-to healthy meal after indulging in celebration foods?
Are you excited for pumpkin-spice mania or is it too soon?
