Starting April off right!

I started off my morning fueling up with some strawberries, oatmeal with peanut butter and an iced coffee with chocolate milk.  Monica from Run Eat Repeat has iced coffee before a lot of her runs so I figured I would try it out today!  

Here I am at the beginning of my 13k journey.

This was the second hill (but most intense) that I tackled. 

The view from the top of the hill is amazing.  I live in a very beautiful (most times) place.

At about 7.5k there was a booster juice so I decided to have my mid-run fuel in the form of a Green Hornet juice.  

My run was pretty hilly.  Definitely a challenge for me.  When I hit the 10k mark I started freaking out about the last hill and trying to think up alternate routes home.  Then I just started repeating (freakishly) "that hill's not so bad, that hill's not so bad, that hill's not so bad".  I got to the intersection where I had to make the decision... and what comes on my iPhone but Ice Cube baby.  "You can do it". I was in, I took on that hill and finished my last 3k like it "ain't no thang".  

Until I stopped and started walking and my legs were not moving normally. I think I have to start looking into compression shorts, ice bathes and so on.  Not super looking forward to it either. 

Overall my run was extremely successful and when I got home I refuelled with greek yogurt, carrot cake granola and a banana!    


  1. Carrot cake granola?

    1. I bought it from the grocery store it's called Love Crunch Premium Organic Granola, and I chose to try out the Carrot Cake flavor... YUM!

  2. 13k?? Daaaaang, that is really far. You are super fit!

  3. Sounds like a great run! You sound like you would be an AWESOME running partner... shame you arent in maryland :) since Im in major need of a running buddy! And great job on the hill!
