Yesterday morning I woke up with a purpose. Challenge day 1!
AND it only took me 2 snooze buttons to jump out of bed. Yes, I jumped with
joy surprise to find my open window had caused my bedroom to drop to 35 degree F during the night.
A cold front blew through and I had not been warned! Whatever alarm works for you, electrical or frigid gusts of wind, find a way to get you up and at ‘em!
So I layered up, laced up, and hit the road.
I’m not sure exactly how cold is too cold outside for a body to run in it. Warning sign, icicles dripping from my eyes and nose within 5 minutes.
I exaggerate, but it was BONE CHILLY!
BUT I finished with
flying flushed colors! AND fed 7.7 hungry people!
9 days, 9 runs, 27 miles to go in counting.
Thankfully I had some delish overnight oats waiting for me post run.
I combined 1/2 c oats with 1 c unsweetened almond milk in a ziploc. I then added to the oats, 1 packet of truvia, a dash of ground cloves, and cinnamon. Overnight In the fridge, the oats absorb all that goodness and expand into a creamy, milky oatmeal delight. It’s super easy, quick, and hardly any clean up required!
My oats are topped with a couple TBSP’s of this spiced peanut butter cookie dough recipe and PB2. SO GOOD!

I’m looking for the best pre-workout meal. I ate a small banana beforehand and man was I not feeling it! I felt rather sluggish.
Anyone have any tips on the best pre-workout food? Nothing too heavy, carby, or sweet?
What’s your fuel???
