Great start to a weekend!

I happily snoozed my alarm a good 3 times before actually rising out of bed this morning. When I am home in Hamilton, I like waking up early to spend some precious 20 or 30 minutes of quiet time with my mom while we enjoy some coffee, and chit-chat about the news stories in the paper. In New Brunswick today, though, there was nothing really to wake up to. I was not running the 50 mile trail run today nor was I going on a run of my own so I decided another 30 minutes was called for!

Val woke up shortly after me and while we were watching a short 2013 Tarawera Ultramarathon documentary on Youtube ( with coffee in my hand, I knew today called for our once-in-a-while breakfast treat: pancakes! Of course, Val agreed to this and I immediately begin to whip up some gluten-free pancakes. I was going to use a non gluten-free buckwheat pancake mix, but found the GF mix tucked away!

Ingredients not pictured: nutmeg, brown rice syrup, flax seeds, chia seeds. Toppings for use: raisins, banana slices, maple brown syrup. Summation: DELICIOUSNESS!!

Not a bad way to start off the weekend! Now, Val is out running a 4-5 mile run before going ice skating and I am about to head to work after I publish this post. At least one of us is using up the carbs appropriately!

Happy Running! Have a great weekend!
