Bring on the balls.

Posted: November 2, 2010 by sarahbod in FOOD

The runs have been dwindling since it’s now dark when I get up and dark when I finish work. I do have a late start tomorrow for work so hopefully I’ll get my lazy butt out for a run. In the meantime I have been keeping myself busy in the kitchen. Last week my girlfriend Erin was over and we took over the kitchen and made ourselves some balls…Arvinda’s orange-almond chai running balls that is. I found the recipe in Canadian Running magazine and decided to give them a try as the recipe claims that they “pack a powerful combo of protein, fibre and carbs.”

Holy ingrediants Batman!!

The mag also claims that “They’re perfect as a long run treat or post-workout recovery snack.

"They taste...healthy" - Erin

I know that Erin was disappointed that the balls weren’t a tasty dessert type treat, but I do know that she enjoyed the “ball” jokes that took place throughout the process of making them. This video may have been our inspiration, classic. SB


Reasons to run…part deux.

After 10 amazing days on the East coast Brad and I have returned to reality. Reality as they say…bites! We had a great time visiting with family and friends and attending the epic party that was Lee and Chantelle’s wedding.  I actually got some runs in during our time there.Thankfully my mother-in-law and the Best Western Charlottetown have a treadmill.  It was a little too humid for my liking to run outside. I decided early on in our vacation that I really had no choice but to run, considering the following:

1. I love lobster…and  there was plenty to be had.

2. I love Cow’s ice cream.


We just had to have some. I mean...we were in the birthplace of Cow's ice cream.

3. I love bbq’d hamburgers!!!


How could I say no to these cute bbq chefs?!?

4. I love chocolate…maybe even addicted.


I just had to try a few of these at the would have been rude not to!

So, as I have said in the past…empty calories do not burn themselves. Which is why I ran during my holiday and will continue to run after the 1/2 marathon. For now…back to training. With the run fast approaching I have to get my km’s up and put in some more hill time! Maybe tomorrow? That is if I get my packing done for Vegas in good time! Doesn’t every 1/2 marathon training schedule recommend a girls trip to Sin City 2 weeks before race day??? I know mine must have! SB

So I started running again…

I did it 3 times last week not great, but I’ll take good. Hope everyone had a nice long weekend! It was hard to run while at the cottage making Chourico (that’s portuguese sausage) I was up to the elbows in intestines

Stella helped too!!!!

And let me tell you they were yum!!!!

So once Glen was able to strap on my runners and roll me out the door I was hoping to do my long run for the week, around 13km.

These lululemon leggings are a kudoos to Brett Micheals winning Apprentice (I didn’t actually watch the show, but I do feels like I’m in a 80’s hair band when I wear them!)

I love to run by water!!!!!

Not sure if it was the beer or sausage consumed this weekend but this plane was starting to look good to hotwire. I don’t want any convictions before the trip so I just decided to run back.

Hope this isn’t an omen, but I found a turtle in the lake the girls named him Squirt. Guido wants to keep him as a pet.

So tell me how your running is going.
