Would You Run For This Wednesday
Ok, runners, wanna-bes, and should-bes. Todays Would You Run For This Wednesday comes at you two days late...ahem, sorry. No really, I was gone on vacation with no power, and I could not send out my mouth blowing, gonna make your run post of this delicious Baked Banana French Toast!

The recipe is right under the picture posted as always, the only not so great thing, is the nutritional facts are not posted on their site...which means you can figure the calories and fat grams for yourself, or do what I do...Bake, Eat, Run.

The really great thing about the recipe is that there is step by step photos along with the directions for the yummy breakfast just to make sure you are able to move along the delicious path to massive running calories! The other really great thing about a breakfast like this one, is you can plan to make it after a nice long run, to re-fuel and replenish some of those depleted carbs...the trick is to out run your appetite.

I for one LOVE anything that has bananas in it! So, this Baked Banana French Toast is right up my alley.

I will definitely be running for this one! Tell me....Would You Run For This?

It Was A Dark Night...My Censored Thought On Aurora's Dark Night

Aurora, Colorado

My thoughts on such a tragic incident have really no bearing on what the families and the community of Aurora are thinking right now. But, I still have them. It sickens me to think that this incident was planned, thought out, and carried through. My thoughts on this, my true feelings, I will keep very censored in hopes to not offend, or disrespect anybody.
I am done entertaining the discussions and thoughts of what has transpired now. I will no longer visit that dark place of negative thoughts. I said my piece and said my prayer, now only the light and positivity can shine through.

Getting My Sexy Back, And Make It A Foursome!


Getting my sexy back is going to take a lot more than just getting out the door and running, I realized this when trying to get out the door and running yesterday. My four month old was up and ready to go at 5:30 a.m. and that puts a halt on just going out the door. Once he fell back to sleep, the rest of the army rises and wants food, water, toys, and all the other demands children make. I soon realized the only way this was going to work in my favor, was if we made it a foursome.

With stroller in tow, my three sons and I made our way to the 200 meter indoor track. My two older boys (4 & 5) along with myself, are signed up for a 5K in August called the Color Run. Since we are doing a 5K in August, I figured I would show them exactly what they are in for. As a parent I am very excited to see them participate in their first run. As a runner....I am beyond the moon excited!

So, how did my boys do their first training day for their first 5K? They were ah-mazing! They did the whole 5K! Maybe running with my kiddos is just what I need to do to ensure I will have some sort of guaranteed  partners as I grow old. If anything, I can pass on my good, healthy habits to my kids rather than any bad ones. How did I do? Not bad. Honestly I felt great. I feel like I only took a few weeks off, rather then months. Not a bad start to getting back into the swing of things.

Would You Run For This Wednesday

Would You Run For This Wednesday

If you have ever been to Bonefish Grill then you know how AH-mazing the Bang Bang Shrimp is. And if you have been to Bonefish Grill, and you LOVE the Bang Bang Shrimp, this recipe is so close to the original you would swear you were eating take-out from Bonefish.

If you have never been to Bonefish or there isn't one near your hometown, then this recipe will knock your socks off!! 

One bowl from Bonefish serves 4.....ok, pick your chin up off your lap, yes, I said 4.
One serving of the 4 is 337 calories, 13 grams of fat (not bad, unless you eat the bowl) 30 grams of carbs, and 25 grams of protein. The killer....600 grams of sodium...YIKES! 
So, if you're like me, and you could totally eat one bowl all by yourself here are your totals:

Calories: 1348
Fat: 52 grams
Carbs: 120 grams
Protein: 100
Sodium: 2400 grams (OMW!!!!)

Would I Run For This? OH HECK YES!! 

Would You Run For This? 
Quite honestly, if you eat this, you will need too! Especially if you eat it all alone.
