Cinnamon in everything! Testing out a new smoothie: cinnamon swirl smoothie. Banana, tahini, gluten free oats, cinnamon and spinach. 👍👍
It’s really starting to feel like fall out there. Monday morning run in my new @reebok #zquick sneakers. It’s been a good shoe week for me! 👟👟
I heart acai. Thanks @breakfastcriminals and @sweetgreen for the killer class! #breakfastcrininals #sgpassport (at Sweetgreen)
Every girl deserves a new pair of shoes… Especially during fashion week. 7 sunny and rainy miles for #run10feed10 in my brand new @saucony fastwitch 6 sneaks ☀️☔️🌈 (at Prospect Park)
Chia Seed Pudding
Already completely obsessed with the Choosing Raw cookbook. I made chia pudding and sweetened it with fresh cherries, goji berries and a bit if the shiro plum jam.
Add 6 tablespoons of chia seeds to 2 cups of nut milk of choice. (I used hemp milk). I then sweetened it with a little jam and put it in the fridge overnight. Instead of jam, you can use maple syrup or agave.
In the morning, I scooped out some of the pudding and topped with fresh fruit.
I’m straight jammin’. I just whipped up my first batch of shiro plum and goji berry jam. I’m trying not to eat it directly from the jar…
This post is a little late, and if you follow me on Instagram, you already know everything. But I guess it’s never too late for a race recap.
Last Saturday I participated in a “hipster triathlon”. What’s a hipster triathlon you ask? Well, there are some clear differences than your standard tri.
1. Start time - No 7AM start here. This triathlon started at 11. I’m not much of a morning person, so I really appreciated it.
2. Public amenities: This was an unofficial race, so the course used the Red Hook Public Pool, Brooklyn roads and a public track. Here’s the course.
3. Ironic tattoos, beer and pizza.
Here’s the recap in pictures:
Our fearless leaders (and organizers) giving us the pre-race low-down.
Of course there was swag! I love these sweat bands. Swim, bike run, pizza #2014minitri
We weren’t allowed to bring anything in the pool so no pictures :( Right after the swim. I’m embarrassed to say that I hadn’t swam swam since the half ironman. My tris were killing me after the 8 minutes in the pool. I remember when I could go 45 mins, easy.
Is it wrong if I’m kind of digging this fake tattoo?
We biked 5 miles from the pool to the tack. Not a bad ride.
Running 3 miles around a track at 1PM is no fun. But we did it!
One quick shot gun, then we were back on the bike for our final 5 miles to get to the pizza leg of the race at L&B Spumoni Gardens.
We kind of got lost, but well worth it for this view!
And this one!
Final destination: Pizza.
After an entire day of swimming, biking and running, we realized that we were a good 10 miles away from our homes. So while we were near Coney Island, we might as well head to the beach!
It was such a fun day! I’m already looking forward to the Hipster Tri 2.0 next year.
What was the strangest race you have ever done?
