Wore my Purple for TNT!

At Hopper’s Hands, half-way point!

Today was national “Wear your Team in Training shirt” day. How many people did? I decided to wear my crazy purple singlet and my visor on my 8+ mile run from home to Hopper’s hands (the GG Bridge) and back. It was a gorgeous, sunny, warm day and a perfect afternoon for a run along the Marina. It was one of those great runs where I had no plan, no goal, and no expectation. Just wanted to get outside and see how I felt. I listened to an episode of This American Life (NPR nerd alert) and cruised along. The hardest part of the run was jogging up the Fillmore hill to get back to Pac heights. My legs will be screaming tomorrow!

A little note about Team in Training… I proudly wear my purple and support the organization! The program raises money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and helps save lives of those with blood cancers. As cheesy as it sounds, TNT changed my life for the better. It made me more compassionate, it made me fall in love with endurance sports, it provided me with life-long (I hope!) friendships, and it genuinely made me a better person. I would recommend Team in Training to anyone! It’s healthy, active, and social.

After my run I made a recovery smoothie with a scoop of Vega protein powder, frozen berries, maca powder, chia seeds, coconut flakes and water. Delish!!!! And later for dinner I had a very basic dish of quinoa and a boiled sweet potato with basil and hot sauce. I love keeping healthy dishes simple and spicy!!

That’s all for today. Thanks everyone.

Swim. Bike. Run. Eat plants.
