Misty Morning Trail Run

I tried out my new trail running shoes today!  It was a good day to try them, too.  It had been raining all night and it was misting on us the entire time.  The trail was soft and muddy with puddles.  We ran some crazy hills and steps, climbing fairly high before looping back down.  I only tried over a rock once and almost lost my footing twice looking to see how close the runner behind me was.  I also managed to leap over several logs down over the trail without tripping.  Who is this girl?!

Pretty great way to start my day!  I was worried that the new shoes might feel really stiff comparing to my regular running shoes, but I didn’t notice this to be a problem.  So far, so good!

Today was Day 4 of the 7-Day Green Smoothie Challenge.  Blueberries sounded good after my run so I mixed my smoothie around them.

Ingredients included:

  • 5 oz. frozen blueberries
  • 1 container Fage Blueberry Acai Greek Yogurt
  • 1/2 frozen banana (obviously not the banana shown)
  • 1 cup vanilla coconut milk
  • 1 handful spinach
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein powder

This smoothie was great!  Creamy and tasty.  Much better than yesterday’s smoothie attempt!  I think I am getting better at this.  I’ve already planned out tomorrow’s smoothie.  #7daygreensmoothiechallenge
