Happy National Oatmeal Day! The sweet and tart berries swirled with the goodness of oatmeal bread and topped with a decadently whipped goat cheese spread is the perfect way to start your morning. It also makes a great snack or an even better treat to take to a brunch.
I got to go back to Nebraska a couple of weeks ago like I talked about in my Thin Mint Cookie Pie post! I feel like we go back a lot..maybe a lot more than most people who live away from home do. I think both Dave and I miss our family a whole lot and can’t wait to move back. I wanted to share a little recap to a. show you all my yummy eats, b. show you some Valas Pumpkin Patch (and cute nephew) pictures and lastly c. brag about my run.
I will start out by saying I’ve only done two of these runs, but they were both with different companies, different people and different states, so I feel like all of those different variables helps round out my experiences. Meaning, I didn’t just do one run and base my opinions on that one run that could have been good or bad just depending on the day/people/place.
I’ve never done a serious competitive mud run like the Tough Mudder, which from what I’ve heard are much different than the fun runs I’ve done, so I want to make sure it’s clear that I’m talking about non-competitive fun mud runs.
Fall is one of those times where the weather is quite unpredictable. It might be 60 degrees but super windy (like it was in Nebraska for my 7 mile run-walk), or it might even be in the 40s and sunny.
It could even be snowing. I mean, this is Minnesota.
My solution: layers.
I know for a fact that I will have a couple of layers on for my upcoming race (half of my costume is that zebra running jacket!). I’m going to share with you some factors to take into account as well as some of my favorite Target® C9 running pieces.
