As soon as I am 3 miles out it starts to pour…..of course :)!
This was my run yesterday. I knew there was a slight chance for rain in the morning, but that was the only time that was going to work for me to run. When I left the house it didn’t really look like rain so I thought I lucked out….wrong! Actually, it wasn’t really too bad (I am pretty sure that anyone who drove past me during this time though thought I was nuts!)…6 miles at an easy pace 2.5 of them were in the rain :). Of course the rain let up and pretty much stopped by the time I got home.
I came across THIS interesting bit of information about one of my favorite runners….Kara Goucher.
I also came across THIS article about the new “Unbroken” movie. The book was amazing. The faith that Louis Zamperini had is inspirational! I like to sometimes listen to audio books when I run…. and seeing this made me want to get and listen to Unbroken next!!!!
Other than that …not much is new. I am working on a speed work plan to get me ready for my upcoming 1/2 marathon and I have the recipe for the best cinnamon zucchini bread I have ever had…here it is:
1. 3 cups whole wheat flour
2. 1 Tbs cinnamon
3. 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
4. 1 tsp baking soda
5. 1 tsp salt
6. 1 c canola oil
7. 2 1/3 c sugar
8. 3 eggs, beaten
2 c grated zuchinni
9. 1 Tbs vanilla
1. preheat oven to 350.Combine first 5 ingredients.Combine the oil and sugar, mixing well. Add eggs 1 at a time. Add dry ingredients. Bake for 1 hour
This recipe makes 2 loaves!
