Happy Saturday everyone! This week I continued to clean up old blog posts and fix a few things on this site. I also slowly began running again. I’ve been hitting the trails and trying to keep it really slow as I come back from injury. I take walk breaks and allow myself to stop and enjoy the scenes if I so desire. This is the type of running that I love to do after training so hard for a marathon.
The trails are really where I find myself, clear my head, think of things to write about and the reason I started this blog. Trail running is theraputic and never fails to restore my love of our sport. I do love to mix it up though, and that’s why I continue to enter races, and try and improve my times, that’s rewarding as well. Here is a few images from my run this week.
Summer is my time to relax and have fun with my running. It is starting to heat up out there though, so I love to use seasonal fruits to create refreshing recipes, especially drinks after a long hot trail run. It makes hydration more interesting!
I am a grapefruit fanatic and have been receiving them in my Farm Fresh to You box lately. I must say that I prefer Texas Pink Grapefruit to California, but these are so fresh that they are a pretty close second. I know that grapefruit isn’t for everyone, but as someone who grew up drinking Fresca, you don’t need to talk me into eating them.
What you’ll need
1 small grapefruit peeled
1 teaspoon of Agave or Honey
1 cup of coconut water, water or herbal tea
1 packet of Arbonne citrus fizz stick
1/4 cup of chia seeds
handful of ice cubes
- 1 small grapefruit
- 1 t. Agave or Honey
- ¼ cup chia seeds
- 1 cup of water, coconut water or herbal tea
- 1 Arbonne citrus fizz stick
- handful of ice cubes
- Place all ingredients in a blender and blend for one minute or until all ingredients mixed.
