Training in the Bahamas

It was a little crazy trying to keep up my running during our week staying on a sailboat in the Bahamas. I had to get creative... this picture was on a beach where Dave and I just kept running back and forth the length of the beach until we got our mileage in. Good thing our GPS worked there!

This is a must read for all you runners out there...
He ran a ragnar race by himself, the whole 200 miles! I thought we were crazy for doing this race!

totally inspiring, I never read (really, like not a book since i was forced to read in high school), and I couldn't put this book down.

I have to admit there's a little language and stuff you girls might not want to read about but overall amazing!

Let me know if you want to barrow my copy!

Ok, so I am throwing a few recipes on here for fun. The Power balls are a perfect pick-me-up snack and the quinoa salad is great for a side dish or snack! I would also love to see any yummy recipes you all have:)
Power balls:
Mix together 1 c peanut butter and 1 c honey until smooth. Gradually add in 3 1/2 c old fashioned oats and 1/2 c ground flaxseed or wheatgerm. Add 1 c chocolate chips and 1/2 c dried fruit (any combo) and 1/2 c chopped nuts. Wet hands in cold water (to help prevent sticking) and roll into ping-pong sized balls. (U can add more oats depending on how you like it.) Layer wax paper between rows to prevent sticking and refrigerate or freeze.

Quinoa Salad:
Cook quinoa according to directions (you can sub veggie or chicken broth for water if u want). I usually use a little less liquid than it calls for. After it's cooled add in: chopped red onion, garlic, 1 tsp ground cumin, lemon pepper, diced bell peppers (I like to saute mine in olive oil first), canned corn, canned black beans, chopped cilantro, fresh lime juice, salt and pepper. You can really mix in whatever you like, we sometimes add diced tomatoes, diced jalapeno, feta cheese, scallions, whatever we have on hand that sounds good! And it's all to taste, so that's why there's no real measurements:)

I think there were a few "Divas" that ran this last year. It is only $40. Anyone interested? I was thinking about it.
