Errands and New Fuel

After dropping Dax off at Preschool this morning, Everett and I headed out to run errands. It is so much easier to get shopping done with only 1 kid instead of 2!

We managed to get a lot done. We got all our groceries for the week, went to TJ Maxx, Old Navy, and Sports Authority.

I was so excited when we got to the grocery store this morning and I saw Mom’s Best cereal on sale. My kids LOVE cereal and when they eat it, half ends up on the floor so we go through it quickly! I got 10 boxes of cereal for $0.99 each. What a steal!

I picked up a few different chews and gels to try as energy during my long runs. Thus far my stomach does not seem to be very sensitive and I haven’t reacted badly to anything I’ve tried. I just decided to experiment with a few different fuel sources to see if I like one more than the other. I don’t bring fuel unless I will be running for more than an hour. During my long runs I take some sort of fuel every 45 minutes and a few big swigs of water every mile.  I will be doing a review of the different gels and chews after my long runs to let you know how they work for me.

I went all paparazzi and took a picture from my car of Dax on his way out of Preschool. I love our Preschool for many reasons but one is the traffic circle. There is no parking and getting out of the car. We just pull up and Dax is escorted by a teacher out to the car. The teacher even helps him into his car seat and buckles him up. It is especially nice on days like today because Everett was asleep and I didn’t have to wake him up!

Poor Everett was exhausted from our outing this morning. He usually wakes up when I get him out of the car seat, but today he just put his head on my shoulder and went back to sleep.


What is your favorite fuel for endurance activities?

What is your favorite cereal?

It used to be Lucky Charms but recently I’ve been enjoying Honey Nut Cheerios!

  1. I really need your opinion. So what do you think about these running shoes? I just saw this Reebok commercial with J.Sparks, Lil Rel, and Ruben Studdard and they look really hip and comfortable. http://bit.ly/ZigLite
