Last Post For A While

It's been a while.  I had so much going on since my last post!  I am excited to say, I did my first half marathon in Nashville, TN.  It was a great success.  I wasn't sure if I was going to make it, but I did.  This past weekend, I did my second half marathon in Illinois.  I achieved a 20 minute PR (personal record) too boot!  My next one is in July, and I am hoping to get another PR at that one as well, even if only a small one).  We will see.

I haven't been juicing much, with everything going on, from my son's graduation to traveling to half marathons, to having family come in and stay, etc.  But I did start back yesterday.  I have decided that I am not going to juice 100% of the time.  I will juice and blend in the morning, and then eat a salad or something for lunch and something like quinoa/bean salad for dinner with another juice perhaps.  My goal is to just go gluten free and maintain my vegan lifestyle.

Below is a mint/fruit/almond blend I just made in my magic bullet.  It was yummy!!!  That is the best thing about making juices or blendies, you can put just about anything in them and cater them to your personal tastes!

I'm heading out for a salad lunch with a friend, and then off to do a 3 miler.  Gotta get that training in so that I can get a new PR at my next half in one month!  I am going to take a break from blogging for a bit to get things in order.
