Lunch is ready and I'm waiting for my 2 Mikes to arrive (Mike is picking up Mikah from her SAT review class), which means, I have a few minutes to blog and share my thoughts on this fine Saturday morning.
SafetyI was doing my usual blog rounds yesterday and I came across Lesley's post regarding the runner who got critically injured after she got hit by a bicycle in Dallas. Sad news! I pray that she is alright. Made me recall, though. When I started running, I used to wear both my earphones. It was only some months ago when I learned to wear just one and tuck in the other in my shirt so I can still hear what's going on around me. Also, I am taking this news as a sign to finally get my Road I.D. I've been putting it off because...uhm...are you ready?..."I haven't decided on a quote to put under my info!" Such a lame excuse! Duh!
SpartacusSo Mike and I started watching this series. I find it really strange that they use the F, S, and B word in their dialogues. Did those words even exist during the Roman times? Hmmmm...*raises eyebrows* We're still on the second episode and I haven't decided yet if I'm liking it or not. I must say those gladiators are hot! Hooray for eye candy!
Why hello there!

SmoothieSaturday is smoothie day, so I made this Wake-Up Smoothie from Eatingwell.com. I replaced the Splenda with Stevia since it's a much better sugar substitute. I like that it has silken tofu in it and it's only 157 calories per serving!

1 1/4 cups frozen berries, such as raspberries, blackberries, blueberries and/or strawberries

1 tablespoon sugar, or Stevia (optional)
1. Combine orange juice, banana, berries, tofu (or yogurt) and sugar (or Stevia), if using, in a blender; cover and blend until creamy. Serve immediately.

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! Happy runs everyone! And remember...RUN SAFE!
- Do you listen to music while running?
- Do you own a Road I.D.? If so, which kind do you have?
- Is this Spartacus series any good?!
