|a whole lotta runners!|
At 6PM sharp Road Runner reveals a huge map with a bunch of businesses on it. You also get a GPS enabled map emailed to you if you pre-registered that tells you the distances between each checkpoint.

You have exactly 60 minutes to run around, collect tickets, and get back to Road Runner. Some checkpoints get your more tickets depending on their distance from the start and some you can get more tickets for doing things like jumping jacks, going on a slippy slide, etc.
We ran and ran and ran and went up a big hill, down a big hill, up another hill, and down again. What I thought might be a super leisurely 3 miles ended up being a speedy, hilly 5 miles. When we returned we handed in all our tickets to be entered in a raffle to win TONS of prizes.

We all agreed it was a fun time and I will definitely be back next monday. Seattle runners - mark your calendars for August 2!
Next up...Blogger Go Bananas!
Kerrie at Mom vs. Marathon was contacted by Dole to hold a bananas party and although we all thought it was a bit odd we figured why not get together, chat and eat yummy bananas? That isn't weird at all right? So, on Sunday afternoon I made the trek out to Kerrie's house and hung out with some super fun ladies eating all things bananas.
She definitely went all out with the bananas and monkey theme and even had "banana" music on for us to enjoy. Some of the recipes were standard banana fare like banana bread, peanut butter and banana sandwiches and smoothies. Other things that were surprisingly delicious included banana protein bars and banana chicken curry salad. I will post recipes to both really soon...promise!
We indulged in all things bananas and then took a walk on the trail by her house just chatting about everything under the sun...it was so great to get to know these ladies better!

Question: Do you love bananas? Do you often eat them straight up or in smoothies, bread etc.?
