5 Game Day Treats

Happy Friday!  It's not a secret that March is the "most wonderful time of the year".  Between the days getting longer and March Madness, it's a great month!  This weekend I'll be watching plenty of basketball with the Big 12 tournament and Selection Sunday.  March Madness starts on the 15th with a ton of basketball games all culminating with the finals on April 2.  Watching all those games is hard work... and you definatley need to fuel properly.  I'm sharing 5 Game Day Treats that are perfect for watching the action.  Bonus, these five are pretty much guilt-free!

5 Game Day Treats

  1. Loaded Sweet Potato Nachos - these "nachos" use oven roasted sweet potatoes as the base and shredded jackfruit as the "meat". 5 Game Day Treats

  2. Cauliflower Nachos - taco seasoned cauliflower is the base in this one with walnut-lentil taco "meat" and a great creamy no-cheese sauce.5 game day treats

  3. Greek Style Cucumber Nachos - Cucumber rounds are the chips, topped hummus, veggies, and vegan feta cheese.5 game day treats

  4. Buffalo Cauliflower Pizza - buffalo sauce + pizza = match made in heaven. 5 game day treats

  5. Med-Veg Pizza - pizza with hummus... sounds a little whacky, but it is sooo good!5 game day treats

Tune back in Monday... I have a recipe which may knock one of these out of the top 5!

What type of food do you enjoy while watching games?

I'm linking up with Running on Happy & Fairytales and Fitness for the Friday Five 2.0 linkup!

2017 Chicago Marathon Recap

Last weekend I ran my second marathon... the Chicago Marathon. This is my 2017 Chicago Marathon Recap!

The week prior, the hubs decided he didn't want to go to Chicago... citing some pretty lame excuses.  I wasn't too worried about that as I am not afraid to travel on my own.

I flew into Chicago on Friday morning.  The plane from Houston seemed to be full of folks running in the marathon.  I sat by a young couple who were also running (his 1st marathon, her 7th).  After landing up in Chicago, I took the Orange Line into the city and checked into my hotel, then headed back out for some lunch and then to take in the Expo.
The Expo

The Expo was CRAZY! I retrieved my bib, shirt and wandered around for a bit.  I tried shopping in the Nike area, but after I was shoved a couple of times, I lost all interest.  With all the craziness, I decided I needed to find the Goose Island beer bus for a little sample.

I checked out several booths and then headed to the Runners World stage for the cour…

Brazos Bend 50k Recap

On April 7th, I ran my very first 50k at Brazos Bend 50.  The event was a Trail Racing Over Texas race located at Brazos Bend State Park outside of Needville, TX.  This is my Brazos Bend 50k recap.
I had gone into Houston after work to pick up my race packet ahead of time... along with my bib and race shirt, they also had bonus swag, for this race it was Altra Gaiters.  Race day-eve brought me a little visitor.... yup, Aunt Flo decided to come for a stay. This definitely put a little twist in my plans.  I took off work a little early so that I could get dinner at a reasonable hour, my clothes laid out, and to bed early.  My race-day eve fueling was my lucky veggie burger and sweet potato fries at Bella Green.

After some thought I decided to wear my hydration vest to carry necessary supplies instead of my handheld.  Once I got home, I laid out my clothes, got my supplies ready and headed to bed.  My wake-up call was 3am!

It was tough figuring out what to wear.  The forecast cal…

2018 Houston Marathon Recap

Last weekend I ran my third marathon... the Houston Marathon. This is my 2018 Houston Marathon Recap!

I ran the Houston Marathon last year, it was my very first marathon.  It was such a fun time, I signed up again as soon as early bird entry opened up.
ABB 5k
I chose to run the ABB 5k on the day before the marathon.  I figured since I had to be in Houston to pick up my packet, I might as well use it for my shakeout run.  The temps were mighty chilly that morning.  I bundled up and headed in early to pick up my packet.  After I dropped my bag (and jacket) off at the bag drop, I was very happy to see the convention center was open to wait in.

15 minutes prior to race start, I headed out to use the port-a-cans and line up.  I chose to line up with the 11 minute mile group in an attempt to keep my pace super easy.  They sang the Star Spangled Banner and we were off right on time!

I had to do a bit of bobbing and weaving as there were several walkers who lined up ahead of me.  Within a half mil…
