Favorite Thing to Make and 15 Cities Amazing Running Routes

Standard

I saw this article and I’m always excited to see the insider locations so I had to look through it.  You can find it at http://greatist.com/move, there’s some other fun stuff there too.  It is really the best because my favorite Marin route AND my favorite Seattle route when I lived there (and when I visit) were both on the list!  So now I know the credibility of runmazingness (new word) I really want to try the ones listed from other cities!  If you’ve been to the other cities let me know.  So the Marin route listed, was of course, The Dipsea!! My favorite, although I don’t really run that one.  The Seattle one was Greenlake, which is a gorgeous loop around a lake there, with a really nice and well maintained paved and dirt (side by side) path, water fountains, cute dogs, etc.  Basically, if you live in Seattle and run or walk, you go to Greenlake.  Literally.  It’s that amazing and popular.

I’ve finally been getting back on track with running.  Slowly.  Very.  It’s kind of been sad how slow I am running and has added to my not wanting to go because I know it won’t be a solid run.  But I’m working on it.  I even made a deal with a friend to meet next Sunday for a 9 mile run.  That will be the longest I’ve run in about 2 months so it’s good that we’re meeting so I have to do it.

On a totally different note, or maybe not hmmmm…. I’ve been cooking a lot lately, and new stuff.  Ill eventually put some more stuff on here, but for now, here’s my new fave.

It’s kind of like apple crumble but way healthier.  First I threw some almonds and sunflower seeds in the magic bullet for a few seconds to chop them up, then I cut up a few dates (in retrospect I should’ve thrown them in as well, next time I will).

Then I mixed that combo with plain quick oats and a little bit of maple syrup.

Then of course the delicious Fuji apples.

Then I mixed everything together and added some lemon and cinnamon.  I like it better mixed in then set on top like the traditional style but that is of course an option.  I cooked it for only about 15 minutes at around 300, I just wanted to get it to soften up a bit without cooking out all the nutrients.  It was so so SO good.  So good that I have since finished it and made another batch (and finished it).
