Hello! I am so proud of myself for accomplishing 17 miles today! My friend and I ran with a group of girls we rarely run with. Two of them are running Boston so it was good to meet new friends. I was a little nervous because they are faster than me. I think we kept under an 8 minute pace for 10-12 of those miles over a very hilly road! I felt slightly weaker than them, but I kept up and finished! It was good for me to push myself. I love that! I even think I could have gone a few more miles at the end. Here is my outfit of the day! Post 17 miles. Favorite comfy clothes brought to you by Lululemon.
I also want to share my favorite healthy treat that I found at Chocolate Covered Katie! Here is my adapted version! I don’t like mocha so I scratched that!
Mocha Coconut Macaroons
- 1 tbsp vanilla protein powder
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
- 1/2 cup lite coconut milk
- 3 tbsp agave or honey
- 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
- just over 1/16 tsp salt
- melted 60% dark chocolate chips
Combine all ingredients except chocolate chips in a medium sauce pan. Cook on medium to low heat stirring constantly. Cook until firm enough to scoop out. Scoop into balls on a cookie tray lined with parchment paper. Cook at 360 F for 14-16 minutes. Let cool. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave 45 seconds at a time stirring in between until completely melted. Drizzle over the tops of the cookies. Let harden in the fridge for 20 minutes. Makes 12-15 cookies.
These tasted soooo much better than I thought they would. I’ve been feeding them to everyone!!
