run ON! Bayou City Classic 10k ’13

IMG_20130309_065653

pre-race breakfast was 2 egg whites and a big bowl of expanding oats (1/2 cup rolled oats cooked in 1 cup water and 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk) topped with frozen blueberries, banana chunks and cinnamon!  i normally don’t eat THAT much before a long run, but i woke up so hungry that i had to put something in my system that would stick.

walking to the start line  with no rain this time!  last year it rained the entire race AND during the post-race party, boooo.

DONEZO! the route was a tad bit different this year and there were hills, hill, and mo hills, whew.  that Allen Parkway is a beast.

oh how i wish i could have taken pics of all the inspirational and funny things i saw:

1. i had just made it to the halfway point when a woman on a bike heading the opposite way yelled out ‘it’s fit foodie!!!’ are you kidding me!? if you could have SEEN my face light the heck UP as i cheesed, waved, and yelled hello back! i could not see you very well at ALL but THANK YOU FOR MAKING MY YEAR, LADY!!  XOXO!

2.  spectator sign: ‘don’t stop! ain’t nobody got time fo dat!’

3.  people often run in teams or ‘centipedes’ and are linked together by a rope of some sort so that they can finish together. teamwork at its finest!   i passed a team with a gentleman running alongside his IV.  i did a double take for sure!  yes, the stand with the wheels, the fluid bag, the WHOLE NINE.  he was out there doing his thing.  if he can….

4. one thing i did NOT witness was someone biting the dust, hard.  happens every year.  people, you gotta watch where you are going, especially running in the streets of downtown Houston. *knocks on wood*

the My Fit Foods associate called this mixture ‘Morning Glory’.  it’s brown rice, eggs, lean ground turkey, and cheese all mixed together. it was good and something i’d throw together at home for sure.

fresh fruit (bananas and oranges), cereal bars, and scones were provided by Whole Foods,

and Fuel Kitchen supplied the breakfast tacos this year, not HEB.  they were delicious though- i had eggs and chorizo in mine.  a friend has been raving about the Philadelphia location to me and i can finally go experience the food for myself, sweet!
20130309_091122great turn out again this year!  always a pleasure and honor to participate in helping preserve Houston’s bayous, trees, and the environment 🙂

  1. Great Job Hun!!! Maybe next year I’ll join you!!!🏃👟😜Hopefully by that time I’ll have one or two clients I can torture, hehehe!!! Oh and if I haven’t filled you in, I’m now inspired to be a personal trainer incorporating FUN clean eating and muscle training. A month or two ago you said you wrote down your goal….. You inspired me to stop being hesitant and afraid and do the same thing. I’ve prayed (still am) asking God to guide me to my hearts desires, no longer focused on monatary rewards but personal fulfillment. Girl everyday I continue to get confirmation that THIS is my calling! I can ever thank you enough for being an AMAZING inspiration to me. I pray God continues to shower…. scratch that, FLOOD his blessing over you and Sonny! Much love Boo😘 Take Care and keep blogging!!!!!
