A few days before our half marathon, one of the mother's in my son's preschool class handed me a letter.
I THOUGHT it was an invitation to her son's birthday party, so I didn't open it and simply placed it in my purse to read later.
When I walked in the house, I opened the letter and to my surprise it was NOT an invitation, it was a card wishing my husband and I good luck! How sweet is that? I only see her in passing and our boys are in class together, but she knew we were running our first half marathon that weekend!
I was absolutely blown away by her thoughtfulness.
She told us Happy Anniversary, and good luck on the race but the best part...
she shared a Protein Pancake recipe and told us that she would have made them for us, but her husband eats them up in their house!
I haven't tried them yet, but I'm thinking these would be great to make in larger amounts and freeze for a quick and healthy, protein-packed breakfast!
Marisol's Protein Pancakes (makes 4)
1/2 c rolled oats
1 tbs ground flaxseed
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
2 egg whites
1/3 c lowfat cottage cheese
Mix together and cook!
Sometimes the smallest things make the biggest impact and she sure made my day, that day.
And now you've all convinced me, it's time to conquer a 10K!
I'll be looking around this week for one in February and let ya know which one I sign up for!
I am setting a goal and going to reach it! If you don't have a goal, sit down and make one RIGHT NOW! Go for it. Don't let ANYTHING hold you back. You can do anything you set your mind to. That's what we should all live by, each and every day!
