Rainy Day Run

October 13, 2010

I was soaked after my run this morning and no not because I was sweaty.  Because it was a drizzly morning and I refused to let a little rain ruin my run.  The giant puddle I splashed through on accident almost made me turn around but I said “No, Mother Nature you are not ruining this for me.  You and your wind and rain can bite me!”  And I kept on going.

I tried to take a picture of myself but all I got in the picture was my legs and it looked more like I peed my pants than conquered 4 miles in the rain…

Run was followed by a hot shower, hot oats and a few sips of hot tea before I had to run out the door.

I assure you those few sips were wonderful.

But it was nothing compared to this bowl of oats.  A dash of salt in oats in genius I tell you, pure genius.

In the mix:

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup vanilla almond milk
  • Dash of salt
  • 1/2 a banana, whipped
  • 1 T pumpkin butter
  • 1 T Justin’s Chocolate Hazlenut Butter (sooooo glad to have this back in my life!!)
  • Chai flavored almonds

The flavors in this bowl were out of this world!

I ONLY like rainy days when they happen to fall on a Saturday and I have nothing to do but lie around and drink hot chocolate but atleast they make for the perfect lighting!

Lunch was a salad with leftover crispy shrimp, mmmmm + cashews, dates and 1/3 of a GIANT Honeycrisp apple.  Seriously those apples are on steroids.

I came home to some delicious dinner eats but alas no more perfect rainy day lighting 😦

Why hadn’t we thought of tempeh tacos before?

I cut the tempeh into 12 pieces and threw it in a ziplock with soy sauce, hoison, lime juice, salt, garlic powder (because I was feeling lazy this morning and I’m trying not to have garlic smelling hands for the rest of my life) and cumin and let it marinate allll day.

Then I frantically ran to Best Buy because it’s a well-known fact that your printer ALWAYS runs out of ink on the day you need it to print out a paper. 

Back to the tacos.  Actually I have nothing to report because Joey did it all 🙂

Well maybe I do have one thing to report and that’s that these were 100% awesome!!

I actually don’t like Mexican food all that much but fajitas make going out for Mexican so much more enjoyable.  Love love love them!

Highpoint of my day: Someone turned in a court summons to the lost and found at the library and I got to hand it to my boss and tell him “You’ve been served” — yes, this is my idea of a good time.

Happy Wednesday, friends

    Haha I totally know where you’re coming from with the pee-pants vs. ran-in-the-rain look. Too funny 🙂 I kind of love running in the rain every once in a while – so refreshing!

    I totally agree that a dash of salt in the oatmeal MAKES the bowl. It allows the flavor to really pop!

    The only Mexican food I’ve ever eaten has been tacos and I love those. Wait.. nachos are Mexican too I think. Those aren’t bad either. So I guess I like Mexican. For now. Until I try more.

    I wish I could go up to someone and say “You’ve been served.” That would definitely make my day.
