Got up extra early (3:45 am, I actually popped awake then!) on a Sunday morning so I could get my 16 mile run is before D needed to leave for his cycling race at 7:30.  I have to say, if today would have been a race day, it would have been good!

I noticed after my run that my travel mug for my coffee had a leak in it and my coffee was cold.  So, I came home to brew more in our Keurig!  Love the Island Coconut, really I love coconut in general and the smell is heavenly, but not as much as I love peanut butter!  My last post featured Peanut Butter Gu and yes that was taken mid run today too.

Peanut Butter & Company had some new gift packs!  Three peanut butters, two Bob's Red Mill oatmeal packages and this cool breakfast mug.  It comes with a lid and it's own spoon.  Can be microwaved and the dishwasher.

I highly suggest going to their sites and checking it out! Peanut Butter & Co.  If your a peanut butter fanatic, like I am, you will be hooked by the peanut butter.  They have a spicy peanut butter I have yet to try, but it is in my cabinet.

Ok, so it's still a slow go..... but I am going to be committed to at least once a week!  School is taking up the time I could be using.  Honestly, when I get home I have had enough of the computer and being on it all day.  Running is going great, many 20 milers behind me now and anything less than seems like nothing.  Is that even possible?!

I wanted to post some other favorites of mine.

Here are my favorites to run in: Mizuno running shoes, Nike Dry Fit Tank and North Face Running Shorts - I LOVE the Zipper pocket in the back.  If all could have that I would be set!

So my pre-run usually consist of egg whites and a scoop of some fabulous flavored peanut butter from Peanut Butter & Co (Not Pictured).  During my water must be flavored with Nuun Fruit Punch and during Gu!  Can I say that the peanut butter fanatic I am that I cannot get enough of Gu Peanut Butter.  It's perfect!  Larabars in general are just fabulous.  There are a few I cannot have, since they have walnuts, favs of course have chocolate and/or peanut butter.

Beginning in May, the 12th I believe, will begin cycling.  I will at least be going out on group rides on Saturdays, and I cannot wait.  This takes away my one day to sleep in, but will be so worth it!

On a recipe note, I made the best Peanut Butter Gluten Free Low Sugar Mini Cakes.  I will have to post those up next.  Has anyone noticed how difficult it is to keep sugars low!  Half way through my day I am already over the recommended grams.

Oh well, it's a work in progress!  Like most things.
