Root Beer GU and other "treats" (edible and otherwise)

My friends know me. And love me. Or at least Megan does. Because she brought me these when I babysat her darling little girl. And by babysat I mean let her take a nap at my house. Easiest babysitting job ever. I was actually a little sad I didn't get to play with her. So I'm waiting impatiently for the next time I get to hang out with her. Her mom can come too if she wants.

Wednesday night we had one of my favorite easy meals for dinner. Bonus: both my girls love it as well! Here's the non-recipe recipe: small corn tortillas (the smaller the better); heat each tortilla in a skillet to melt a little Monterrey jack cheese on top; top with steak, cilantro, onion and a squeeze of lime. I season my meat with pepper and McCormick Montreal Steak Seasoning.

Last night I hit the treadmill for some speed and hill intervals. The day was a little crazy, so running after my girls went to bed was my last resort. I'm not sure how I completely trained for a marathon on a treadmill. Scott said it is because I didn't know any different. Apparently for me ignorance is treadmill bliss.

The headphones I usually wear when I run outside are wireless with the MP3 player built in, so I had to break out my wired headphones to watch something on my iPad while running. When I pulled them out, they looked like this. No joke.

Which reminded me that I received some Cordskinz the other day to try out. So I followed the super easy instructions and added some Cordskinz to my headphones. They worked great and my headphones stayed, and remain, tangle free. For the record, they are super affordable and come in 11 fun colors. Mine are the smoky clear color so it is kind of hard to see them on my headphone wires.

Today I stopped by the running store to buy some GU for my long run. I am a faithful Salted Caramel GU user but the Root Beer flavor peaked my interest. I picked it up to buy one and then put it back. I just wasn't sure I would be able to stomach it. I can't handle any energy gels that are super sweet, and I'm pretty sure this would fall into that category. Maybe if it was Dr. Pepper flavored...

Have you tried Rootbeer GU? What's your go-to running fuel?


  1. Yes. My second fav after salted caramel. Also like chocolate peanut butter.

  2. I had a Root Beer GU during my 50 trail race. It tastes exactly like Root Beer so if you like to drink that, I think you'd like it.

  3. That taco looks sooooo good. I am really hungry right now. You will have to tell me how those morsels are or if you bake anything with them :)


I love your comments! They make my day, so be sure to let me know you stopped by. And I always try to respond to your comments, so let me know if you have any questions for me or if there is anything you want to see on here!
