A Morning 5 Miler

Gooooooooooooood morning!

It’s a GORGEOUS morning here in D.C. — we had a big storm on Sunday night that finally cooled things back down a bit!

Man, I’m going to miss that view!

I met Heather this morning for a lovely 5 mile run to start out the day right 🙂



Clearly running = my morning coffee!

We had a great run — 5.11 miles in 44:45, for an average pace of 8:45. Good conversation, good weather, and a decent pace, too! The miles flew by 🙂


  • Mile 1: 8:47
  • Mile 2: 8:45
  • Mile 3: 8:52
  • Mile 4: 8:50
  • Mile 5: 8:42
  • 0.11 Nub: 7:23 (Gotta end with a sprint!)

Running is the best way to start a day!

The other best way to start a day is with one of my vegan Almond Butter Banana Breakfast Bars 😉

YUM! I love these. I had half of one before heading out on the run, too 😉

Along with my breakfast bar, I enjoyed some nonfat plain Greek yogurt and fruit. Delish!

The perfect post-run breakfast 🙂

And now — it’s back to studying I go! I will be SO happy when this class is over…

Have a great day!
