The Boilermaker, Bob's Red Mill and Monday

by Joanne on July 13, 2009

Yesterday Shane and I watched the Boilermaker runners pass at the MVCC – Sherman Drive mark, just under 2 miles into the 15 K race.  Some were already looking a bit “spent” and it wasn’t that hot.  But good for them…they were making every attempt at the run while I stood there watching. 

The temperature was good for the boilermaker, at about 70 F by the time the race started.  Ted was golfing so Shane and I were Teddy’s support team at this mile marker.  Unfortunately, we spotted him as he was almost past us, but we did get a good “GO TEDDY” in there and he waved.  Here are some recap photos from the wheelchair, to the elite runners, to the have a good time bunch…10,500+ finished the race.

The wheelchairs start the race at 7:45 am.

For some reason, there are some people who always want to dress up..here we have a green caped cruisader.

The support team at this end of Utica was in full steam. We clapped, we danced, we sang…we were running in spirit. 

Congratulations runners!

 

Bob’s Red Mill.

I just keep getting these wonderful packages from my favorite manufacturer of oatmeal and other great products.  Saturday, I recieved this fantastic package:

Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Vanilla Cake and GF Shortbread Cookie Mix

Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Vanilla Cake and GF Shortbread Cookie Mix

What’s the catch? Not a bad one that’s for sure. I have to bake some goodies using these mixes. 
Recipes enclosed with the mixes look great. Pineapple upside down cake, Boston Cream Pie…and more. I can’t wait. All Gluten FREE!
Now it’s Monday
Back to the routine. Today’s workout:
Chest and biceps.  15 reps. x 4 sets each. 4 sets of running the stairs.  That was fun. Everytime I ran up and down the stairs, Shane would come running downstairs. Then he’d go back up, only to come barreling down again when I ran the stairs.  Silly dog.  Aerobic warm up was 20 minutes running and then a 4 mile run with Shane, post workout.
DSCN1615Todays healthy breakfast:
1/2 cup Bob’s Red Mill 5 Grain Oats, toastedwith cinnamon, then cooked with water and raisins and Banana Pineapple Gallop-a-looza added.
Melon balls (from Sat. party..see PB Celebration Cake).  A chocolate VPX protein shake.
Super Monday All!
