***VIRTUAL RACE UPDATE*** Yesterday we met our goal to raise $1,000 for Hurricane Sandy Recovery! THANK YOU ALL! We’ve only been fundraising for a week and can’t believe that we already hit our goal. Next goal? Let’s see how much we can raise by the end of the month. Let’s see how much we can SURPASS this goal to help those who were impacted by Sandy. AND, just by joining, you are eligible to win some AWESOME prizes. Check out our info page for giveaway updates!
So two things happened — 1) I didn’t make it to Target last night and 2) I decided to use today as a rest day and have my last “long” run tomorrow. Usually on Fridays we get out of work a little early but I was there until 6:30 last night and we had big plans in Brooklyn (visiting our favorite bar and then hitting up a new burger place)… so going to Target would have meant that I wouldn’t have made it home until at least 8… no way. I definitely am starting to miss the days of convenience where I can make a stop on my commute home without wasting tons of time.
I was going to run my last “long run” this morning (8 miles) but figured it would be easier to shift to tomorrow. I have to travel for work Monday and Tuesday (boo), so that means I’ll only have to be worrying about squeezing a run in one day.
I’m still adjusting to the fact that it’s already November, but I still can’t believe I’m running a marathon next weekend! It totally doesn’t feel like it. As I’ve mentioned before, I have no real goals for this one… it’s more of a “keep myself in shape” so I’m in a good starting place for Houston in January. I really want to PR at this race so it means I have to get serious about speed work and fueling.
Which means, my days of having these guys for breakfast are probably over…
Actually, CLICK had this huge sale a few weeks ago so I stocked up and am spoiling myself with that for breakfast. It seriously is my favorite way to start the day.
The people at FOCO Coconut Water sent me some samples to try out (review coming soon) and I am loving using that with CLICK — gives it this little extra “pop” of flavor. Here’s the super simple recipe if you’re interested:
Coco CLICK Breakfast Drink
- 1 scoop CLICK Espresso Protein Powder — Vanilla Latte
- 4 ounces milk
- 8 ounces FOCO Coconut Water
Pour liquids in together, preferably in a shaker (makes it much easier to mix) and add powder on top. Shake for 20-30 seconds and enjoy.
What’s your favorite breakfast food? Are you a coffee drinker?
