Running and Pancakes– The Perfect Combination

Filed under: Uncategorized — crazyrunnerchick @ 8:13 pm


So I finally got out running today.  For the past few weeks, I’ve been confined to the treadmill at 5:30 in the morning since play practice has been getting a little hectic (we’re doing Thoroughly Modern Millie!).  I loved it.  I got up at the crack of dawn and ran 3.5 miles.  And I fueled up with:

Looks weird, tastes delish 😛

Fudgy no-bake cookies 😀 Inside these puppies are:

-1 Cup of oatmeal

-1 banana

-one serving of chocolate sauce

-some vanilla

-2 tablespoons of hemp protein powder

-sweetner as desired (stevia’s really good :P)

Chocolate sauce (this is adapted from chocolate-covered katie’s amazing pms chocolate)

-1/4 cup of oil

-1/4 cup of cocoa powder

-sweetner as desired


1. Mash banana into the oatmeal thoroughly

2. Add the chocolate sauce

3. Add the vanilla, hemp, and sweetner

4. Form into little disks and refridgerate overnight

5. Enjoy 🙂

–makes about 12-14 little cookies

I love running when really early when everything’s just waking up.  You get to see all the little critters like deer and squirrels.  However, i did get a little paranoid when i was running on the country roads because my mom always tells me stories about runners getting murdered/kidnap out in the country.  I know she’s just trying to keep me wary, but still, it scares me lol. Oh well, at least i know she loves me ❤

After my run, i made pancakes, which–not to brag or anything– came out amazingly perfect:


Haha, jk, mine came out crappy.  I’m not good at making pancakes AT ALL, but they tasted good and that’s what matters 🙂  I’m not going to really share the recipe because it came from a box and i just substituted the egg with a half a banana and the milk with chocolate almond milk (which by the way is amazing).

My pancakes:

Gooey, chocolate deliciousness

Yep.  I originally had six but as soon as i flipped them onto the plate i devoured them like the ravenous runner that i am hehe. 

So, today was a big day because today’s the day that i headed up to Mount Vernon to check out the college tomorrow– meaning i get to skip school!  Right now i’m staying at a beautiful motel lol, and i’m bloated from all of the mexican, vegetable fajitas i had for dinner XP 

I’m super excited about visiting the college.   This is the college that I’m thinking about going to– if i can get enough financial aid/scholarships because the only college money i have saved up is about 200 dollars for working the summer before my freshman year.  I took a look at the college before i went out to eat, and it looks beautiful.  I’m still not sure what i want to major in.  I’m thinking Middle School Education, but maybe English.  I really want to be a teacher because i once shadowed a teacher for a week and i really enjoyed it. Well, I’ll find out soon enough.

Do you ever get paranoid when you run out in the middle of nowhere?
