Long Run Done!! & Homemade Acai Bowls!

Last Sunday, I had my 10 miler on the calendar. My last and longest run before my half marathon next Sunday the 9th of October! EEEKKKK! It’s always intimidating, but it feels so good to be done with it. Not only do you get that sense of accomplishment and all those feel good endorphins in your system, but you finally feel fully prepared (or as prepared as you’re ever going to feel) for your race! I met up with Erica at Kendall yards. We did 1.5 miles toward Riverfront park and back. She left, and I finished another 7.5 solo.

I think visors are the most dorky thing ever, but they really do serve a purpose when running hahaha

And on a side note, whats with all the crazy clowns lately???

I love how Spokane bolted down these orange adirondacks with a view

And these green ones too!

I started eating this GU at about mile 6. I love this flavor, and I love even more that it contains caffeine. These ones are my fave, it gives you a little extra boost.

I passed Life Center, I love that their motto is “Loving God, Loving People”

So, I’ve never done the Spokane half before, but I’ve heard that A LOT of it is the same as the Bloomsday course, which to me means there will be a TON of hills! So, I must say that I was not disappointed AT ALL to see that Doomsday was shut down for construction šŸ˜¦ I still went up that way because I’m curious like that. But I highly doubt the course will take us that direction.

Mommy Daughter Date ā¤

Sometimes you need that one on one time with your kiddo. So Makenna and I hit the mall to just hang and spend some quality time together šŸ™‚ She wanted to get her GPS watch set up, but T-mobile couldn’t figure out how to do it with a data line, and I didn’t want to spend $35 per month for a watch, so that was a bust…

On our way!

Kids are the best, they really do remind you that it’s the little things in life that truly matter. Plus they’re so darn cute… most of the time anyway haha

Acai

So, as many of you know, I’m borderline obsessed with acai bowls. They taste amazing, are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and boost your energy and brainpower naturally, through food!

Here is one I got last week from Method North. They blended the acai with peanut butter, topped it with blueberries, strawberries, bananas, granola, coconut and cocao nibs! Amaze!

So, I was super excited when I saw that Wal-Mart started carrying Acai! The said acai bowl from method runs about $8, but I found a box with 8 single servings of acai for $12.97

They look like this

I topped mine with this granola, along with banana and coconut. It turned out so good!

It was raining so I decided to run inside on the treadmill this morning… blah… my least favorite kind of running, but its necessary sometimes… Speaking of this morning. I need to send a shout out to my boyfriend Daniel Feldhusen for leaving flowers on my doorstep this morning. Honestly made my day a million times better after a rough night last night. Yesterday was the 3 year anniversary of my Dad’s death šŸ˜¦ He’s the best and always knows how to make me feel better ā¤
