Happy Weekend!!!!! I thought I would share some things that I am loving right now! I ran my longest run today since my November marathon and it went great!!!
Which leads me to number one of my favorite things
#1. Running in shorts in February!
#2. Pro Compression socks . I LOVE these socks! My favorite are the marathon compression socks, but I also love the trainer lows and the PC runners!
#3. This book! This book is definitely below my girls reading level (it is probably more like 1-2nd grade), but they loved it! Not only is it a cute story, but it also has some great information. She talks about different types of runs, pacing, what a PR is and other great running facts. (I bought this book from Amazon and am bragging on it because I liked not because someone gave it to me).
#4. My Run Far shirt. I love these t-shirts and the cause that they help to support!!!!
#5. My favorite Saucony shoes in such a fun color (we’ll see how long it stays that way).
#6. EOS chapstick. Does the best job at keeping my lips from getting dry!
#7. BEST yogurt ever!
#8. This granola!!!!!
I got the basic recipe from a friend and then made some variations :). It is awesome!!! (I am sure the brown sugar can be replaced…I just haven’t done it that way).
Here is the recipe though:
- 3 cups rolled oats (not instant)
- 3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 oz honey
- 2 oz Pure Maple Syrup
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup coarsely chopped raw or toasted nuts or seeds or dried fruit…..I used raisins, chia, sunflower seeds and walnuts
Heat the oven to 300°F. Place the oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl and stir to combine; set aside.
Place the honey, oil, and vanilla in a small bowl and stir to combine. Pour over the oat mixture and mix until the oats are thoroughly coated.
Spread the mixture in a thin, even layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, then stir and continue baking until the granola is very light golden brown, about 5 to 15 minutes more.
Place the baking sheet on a wire rack and cool the granola to room temperature, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes. (Note: It will harden as it cools.)
Add the fruit and nuts or seeds to the baking sheet and toss to combine.
So there you have. Some of the things that I have been loving lately :).
