after a restful friday night, i woke up Saturday ready to take on the Green 6.2 with a few Fit Foodie Finisher friends:
YES, 3 Ijeomas
they did their thing!!! so happy they were able to come out and run for the cause! i enjoyed hanging out and learning more about them, and i look forward to growing our team. i love the way fitness brings people together!!! the Houston humidity was present as always, but there was no rain and the temperature was perfect.
obviously i missed the thumbs-up memo, whoops. there were a ton of vendors at the post-race party held in the City Centre courtyard. we refueled with bagels, bananas, muffins, and water.
there was also a kids 1k as well- look at little Superman!
i cannot WAIT to do that with Chiso!!! it was the cutest thing EVER. the kids were all so happy to just run!
after getting home a little later, i finally got to make my REAL breakfast, even if it was late afternoon! i had fun fetti birthday cake pancakes (minus the fun fetti) and topped them with regular PB2 and fresh sliced strawberries. (recipe derived from GoSuperSisters)
light and fluffy pancakes
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 3 egg whites
- 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tbs nonfat greek yogurt
- 2 packets stevia
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
mix the dry with the dry, and wet with the wet. slowly add the dry into the wet until combined. batter will be THICK! cook them up on a medium heated griddle until golden brown on both sides.
