This past weekend I was on the other side of the track!!! Instead of running I was working! If you have ever run a race you know what its like to do packet pickup! I have to say that is one of my favorite things about the race, the expo! There are usually so many fun vendors there and that is where I 1st discovered Bondi Band. In 2009, I ran my 1st half marathon with one of my best friends! I had no idea that I would run 4 more after that. They become addicting! And every time I cross the finish line I say ok I think I am done, then I sign up for another. So this past weekend I had the privilege of working at the Flying Pirates half marathon in the Outerbanks, thank you Bondi Band for this experience. RUNNERS, thank those that work the expo’s and all the volunteers. I never knew the dedication, hours and work that went into the expos. I am usually the one to show up, grab my bib and walk around and enjoy all the different vendors. I will never walk into an expo again without thanking those volunteers/workers. Bondi Band And if you want to order something be sure to use this code for a discount: RUNCUCURUN
And if you have never had Duck Donuts, GO! Actually Run!!!!
I love to make roasting chicken and I like to roast it for about 5 hours. But with our busy schedules sometimes 5 hours is not feasible. So I whip out the crock pot and let the chicken cook on high for 1 hour then let it cook for 5 hours on low and dinner is ready! I love using the rest for chicken salad and then I throw the bones back in the crock pot and make my bone broth!
And when you are craving savory waffles, make these! Sweet potato waffles. I usually make an egg to go with them, I make 6 of them to make sure we have enough for Mon-Thurs. Each morning I just pop one in the oven to re-heat it! Savory Waffles
And for a quick night meal, I roasted sweet potatoes, served some of the leftover chicken added in some greens and topped it with BBQ sauce!! So good and quick!
My weekends are used for long runs. Friday mornings I get in a long run then I go take care of 2 of the most precious boys!! Seriously, they have stolen my heart. So I am usually super busy and hands on so I do not have time to sit and eat. I did grab one of these and it hit the spot!! These pouches aren’t for kids anymore! These are great for runners!!! I will definitely be keeping these in my gym bag! And those boys, are they not the cutest?!?! They keep my Fridays super exciting and I LOVE being able to love on them!
Happy Tax Day!! And shout out to MY accountant!!!! Thanks Babe for all your hard work, I am a full time job, I know, but you take amazing care of me and you work so incredibly hard!!!
