Happy Friday! It's kind of gloomy and rainy here, but I am looking forward to a wonderful day! I was already up bright (well not so bright now that it's fall) but early anyway! I had a training session and have been at the coffee shop this morning working and focusing on my new bible study that I joined! It's going to be powerful!
One of the NEWEST veggies I am indulging in are leeks! I love LEEKS!
Like giant onions, but bigger.
Leeks are in the same family as onion and garlic and have a mild onion taste. I wonder why I love them so much. :)
You can boil them, fry them, eat them raw, put them in salads! Numerous possibilities! I cut up this one and sautéed it with a medium size portabella mushroom!
Add a little EVOO....mmm
Add some Tamari (droooolll...)
I love Tamari, it adds a rich taste to so many veggies!
Dance around and saute till everything has that soft look, then, I crank the heat a little and brown the edges of the veggies a bit more!
I added 2 table spoons full of kidney beans and serve aside a nice portion of FLUFFY Quinoa! I love it! It's savory, light and full of protein and B vitamins!
I am on week 6 of Marathon training, this weekend is my first double digit long run of the training program and I am doing part of it with in the Bolder Dash 5 and 10k races! Bolder Options, the non-profit I am fundraising for, running for and training with, facilitate the Bolder Dash every year and it is a wonderful fall race!
Once or twice (10k) around Lake Nokomis in South Minneapolis raises money for and awareness of Bolder Options! My long run calls for 13, but I am running 9 tomorrow morning between the two races. I will have to add another 4 on afterwards or before to meet that milage, but there was no way I wanted to miss the race.
My mentee and I have run it before and it is a ton of fun. Can you tell?
Post race--I am an UBER goof and she loves me anyway. I think.
Full report of my long run weekend and double race day on SUNDAY! I know, I know, I just can't wait to share!
Have you ever done back to back races? Was it for training or just the love of the run? Wish me luck!
