Focus & Vegan Truffles

    I was so excited to get 10 miles in this morning.  It started off cool, but was good weather for a long run.  I haven't done many long runs since my marathon in October. I better get on the ball.

My Chief said:
Mile 1 - 10:27
Mile 2 - 10:17
Mile 3 - 10:01
Mile 4 - 10:40
Mile 5 - 10:20
Mile 6 - 10:50
Mile 7 - 11:04
Mile 8 - 11:42
Mile 9 - 10:54
Mile 10 - 10.44

When I'm  running I just feel skinner, especially when I'm  doing  long runs.  The other side to that is I'm able to eat more.  But this winter has taken a tool on my waist line.  So ,I just need to focus on getting  out and running more and longer.  I  know how much better I will feel when I get it done, but sometime the mojo is just not there.  Didn't I just tell myself to focus. I know Focusing can be hard sometimes.    

I  was the winner of  Vegan Truffles from Kim @ (Just) Trying is for Little Girls

  Here is the link for the Vegan Truffles recipe .

OK, I couldn't resist. Boy, these truffles are so yummy. I have never eaten anything vegan before.

                                         Have you ever had Vegan Truffles?

             Do you feel skinner when you are  putting more miles in ?


  1. Congrats on the win. Those look awesome! I just ate at a Vegan/Vegetarian restaurant today. We had a Vegan chocolate torte it was awesome!

  2. I am sure you have had vegan food before without even knowing.

    I have eaten vegan meals before. Many times in fact. I have a sister and brother in law who are strict vegans. It makes holidays at my parents challenging. My mom has to cook for 2 vegans, 1 vegetarian, 1 flexetarian, and 2 omnivores. She usually make a vegan meal and a meat meal.

    Great job on your run today!

  3. I sure do look forward to making up those calories after a long run :) Those truffles look yummy!

  4. Nice run! I wish I felt skinnier after long runs. It just means I'm more hungry and tend to eat badly. It shouldn't be that way though!

  5. You lucky girl! I wanted to win those!! :)

    Chief had some great numbers for you on your run! Awesome!

    I feel skinnier after a LONG run, but I honestly FEEL the most fit during half training when I am running faster speeds! :) Great run Penny!

  6. Congrats! A farmers wife eating Vegan food makes me chuckle! Yes on the skinny factor...wish it lasted longer!

  7. I can't believe those truffles traveled so well! I'm so glad you like them!

    Nice job on your 10 miles.
