Sad news: I decided to end my Summer Run Streak today. I’m bummed, but I need to listen to my body, which isn’t very happy with me right now. Over the weekend, my IT bands started acting up and yesterday my hip started to bother me, so I’m calling it quits with the steak. (Clearly, I like running more than my body does!)
As much as I want to complete 38 days in a row of running, it’s just not worth a potential injury—and Lord knows I’m prone to them! Plus, I’d like to run with Monica when I see her later this week, so I want to make sure my legs are happy and healthy. I just think they need some rest and they’ll be good as new again!

This morning’s breakfast was “Oatmeal” Minus the Oats with fresh blueberries and almond butter.
I also enjoyed a glass of iced coffee with coconut milk.
Today’s lunch was a big salad topped with cottage cheese, sliced almonds, raspberries, truffle oil, and Annie’s balsamic dressing.
On the side: Sweet Potato Wedges cooked in coconut oil.
I have a new found love for cottage cheese.
A little while later, I whipped up a green smoothie as an afternoon snack. In the mix:
- 1 frozen banana
- 1.5 cups chopped kale
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 2 tbsp almond butter
- 1.75 cups unsweetened almond milk
- Dash of cinnamon
I’m off to walk the pug and then to CrossFit.
Enjoy the night, friends!
