Summer Runnin’ and This Week’s Breakfasts

Morning! It’s a hot one out there today, as I found on this morning’s run!

Sokphal and I met up for an early a.m. jaunt around Rosslyn and Roosevelt Island.

Roosevelt Island is nice for hot days since it’s so shady!

We also stopped to say hello to this little guy.

We had a quick race… he won. 😉

It was fun catching up with Sokphal and getting a little fresh air, but man was I feeling wiped this morning! I was glad Sokphal was down for a lower key (and shorter) run than usual. This was about all I had in me!

Isn’t it weird how some runs are way better than others for no good reason? I mean, it makes sense I’m tired today since I’ve been traveling a lot. But last Tuesday, just after running 3 races in a row up in Boston, I met up with my high school BFF Jenny for a morning run, and I felt great – super energized! We rocked out 4 miles with no problem and would have gone farther if we’d had the time. She was in town last week for a quick visit and it was SO good to see her. I crammed in a dinner, another lunch, afternoon hangout, and dinner, and morning run with her before leaving for San Francisco. Had to make the most of her visit! <3

Jenny, please move closer? 🙂

Anyway! On the eating front, I’ve been loving getting back to my usual breakfasts after being out of town and eating random things the past couple weeks. Yesterday I rocked my favorite Flour Free Breakfast Pancake (<—click for recipe)…

And this morning post-run I threw together a simple cottage cheese bowl. The key to a good breakfast is protein + fiber + healthy fat. Here’s how I did:

  • Protein: cottage cheese
  • Fiber: cereal/oats, fruit (a sliced nectarine, strawberries + blueberries)
  • Healthy fat: chopped pecans

For the cereal, I tossed in a small handful of Mesa Sunrise for crunch, and also added some plain raw rolled oats for chew. Plus a shake of cinnamon for flavor. So good!

And now, back to work. I have a pretty crazy week on tap after playing hooky most of last week, so I better get to it!

Have a good one!

What did you have for breakfast today?

p.s. This is unrelated, but I wanted to put out a call to my fellow DC area dietitians! My AnneTheRD private practice has gotten so busy this year (which is obviously an amazing problem to have!) that I’ve decided to leave my role as sports dietitian at the Endurance Athlete Center. I’m sad to say goodbye to the team there because they all rock, but I just don’t have the time to dedicate to being what they need, especially once their second floor is built out and they have more space for nutrition services. So – if you or anyone you know is interested in the position, please email me! (anne{at} Ideal candidates will be Registered Dietitians, have experience with sports nutrition, and be comfortable running their own private practice within the EAC umbrella. It’s also a contract position, so the opportunity would be best for someone who has a side gig that already makes a decent amount of money. That said, if you put in a lot of time, you could build up enough clients to make it full time. I look forward to hopefully hearing from/interviewing some of you guys, as I’m helping them to find someone awesome to replace me, hopefully by the end of summer. 🙂
