BTB are you in Houston? I'd sign up with you but my 1/2 marathon is that weekend at Disney. Darn!!!

There is another race in Kemah in March I'm thinking about doing. However' date=' it involves a team. A full marathon with 4 runners or a half marathon with 2 runners or single runners doing each by themselves.

I am just North of Houston....near Cleveland TX if you know where that is. My 10K is gonna be in downtown Houston but my 1/2 is going to be in Groveton, TX....Davy Crockett National Forest.

Like and double like this.....

I did 5 miles this morning on the trails and I wasn't ready to stop at the end. The first time I ran trails I could have died after 3 miles. It's my cross over addiction I guess. I'm doomed.

Just ran 6 miles. Felt great. I ate some little "energy squares" made of whole grains' date=' nuts, seeds and Macao nibs (unsweetened chocolate) with some PB2. The last mile was like running down hill. I had visions of Olympic gold. It must have been a lack of oxygen or something. :)[/quote']

Would "kind bars" be a little like this "energy square"? I'm just talking about ingredients and ignoring they are of different sizes. I am assuming you made these because of the inclusion of PB2. As PB2 is just a powder, did you add a little Water to bind all the dry ingredients together? And good job on six miles!

When I heard about runs at Disney, I thought what can get better than that! That would be so much fun to run through frontier land, tomorrow land, etc. there is so many imaginative detail to look at to take our minds off the running. If that is the case, I'm going for one of those runs in the future.

I don't make them. I buy them from nuts.com. I buy the chocolate paradise energy squares but they several flavors. I eat 1-2 oz with the PB2 (mixed) spread on top. I resisted eating these for a while, but decided on runs longer than 3 miles I would have them with the PB2 right before.....and I feel great when I do.....no bonking. 3 miles or less I don't need them.

Here's the ingredients....

Organic Honey, Organic sunflower seeds, Organic sesame seeds, Organic Chocolate chips, Organic Sugar(evaporated cane juice), Organic Chocolate liquor, Organic Cocoa Butter, Soy Lecithin,[An Emulsifier Without gmo], Organic Vanilla), Gmo Free Organic Tofu Powder, Organic apricots(May contain rice flour), Organic Cashews, Organic Cocoa Powder, Organic pumpkin Seeds, Natural Flavors(gluten free, msg free).

Excellent suggestion for us to try also. The sound so good and full of energy. Would it matter if we ate these after the first 3 miles or not? Sort of like how long distance runners eat their gels at certain points in a race to refuel.

I was planning on stashing a few in my pocket for the half marathon. They are small, like the size of dice. 2 squares is about one serving.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.
