Smoothies, Cheerleading and Vegas

Hello! I started my day with an easy 8 miler. My legs really were NOT feeling it today and I took a few walk breaks in there too. Luckily, I’m taking tomorrow off from running and hope to be back in action Tuesday evening for group.

Post-run I wanted a smoothie. Unfortunately, Ben was working on the freezer last night and we forgot to turn it back on. Luckily, there was one big chunk of ice that is was still frozen. Time for a massive smoothie in a bowl!

Toppings: Attune Chocolate granola (warning: it’s more addictive than crack) and PB Puffins (warning: see warning for granola), plus some Cinnamon Raisin PB.

I think this might be my best topped smoothie ever! I went back for more toppings half way through.

I ate this while watching Cheerleading finals on ESPN. I was kind of embarrassed that I still LOVE watching cheerleading, but guys watch football and basketball forever too!

Those were the good days…

Confession: A big part of the reason I wanted to run the Disney Marathon is because I never got to go to nationals there wlEmoticon smile23 Smoothies, Cheerleading and Vegas 

Ben and I are headed to Las Vegas today! We’re just going for a little fun trip and may catch up with friends while we’re out there wlEmoticon winkingsmile16 Smoothies, Cheerleading and Vegasmonica in vegas thumb Smoothies, Cheerleading and Vegas

The last time I went to Las Vegas was for the Rock N Roll Half Marathon in December. Other posts – Deadication and Las Vegas RnR Expo

Before that I went for a Bachelorette Party, ate at Serendipity and had some beverages and dancing.

And when Ben and I drove from California to Maryland – our first stop was Vegas! Classic Vegas fun.las vegas thumb Smoothies, Cheerleading and Vegas

Okay, I’ve gotta pack – see you on the road!

    Have a great time in Vegas!
    I could really use a getaway right now. Sadly, that’s not going to happen. I guess I’ll just have to live vicariously through you! :)

    Is that cinnamon raisin PB from Peanut Butter and Company? They make SUCH good stuff. When I was in NY last year I made a special pilgrimage to their store :)

    HAha, no shame in watching Cheerleading. I only like to watch gymnastics and figure skating during the Olympics even though my husband would tell you those two sports should not be allowed in the Olympics. To each their own!

    I have been wanting to go back ever since I went last year. When you’re dreaming of Vegas, references to it seem to be everywhere!! I wish it was close enough to drive to, because the major cost is the the dang flight to get there!

    Only cheerleaders equate Disney with Nationals! I am the same exact way! Love it! Now I am going to try and convince my boyfriend that he has to take me to Disney because 1) I have never been and 2) it will a cheerleading void.
