Weekending with LOVE G.F.

A sunny Friday morning kicked off the weekend; I had a walk-date with Martha, and a mini photo-shoot with Wash Park  & its summer landscape.

I love this park; it’s hard not to be sucked in by the charm.

I love that these summer flowers take over your attention, like there’s nothing else to see. I also love that the sprinklers put on a show for us.

I love that my camera captured that rainbow, it was definitely the show’s headliner.

Following this, I had a coffee date with Maddy from Love Grown Foods. She is so friendly, fun, & business savvy! This gal has accomplished SO much, its incredible to see how far they’ve come with this granola business in just a few short years.

I love that Maddy & Becca took time out of their days to share a cup o’ joe with me, it was so fun to meet them! And so fun to be spoiled with a lot of granola.

That Cocoa Goodness has my heart. These bags don’t last long in our kitchen!

Saturday started with 14 miles of running; I love that it’s a cool 65* when I get started at 7 a.m.. I don’t love that it’s almost 90* by the time I finish.

These miles were finished with strong legs, that battled a few fickle mind games. I was definitely ready to be done, shower and resume weekending activities.

When you know a cold smoothie topped with Cocoa Goodness is waiting to be made, getting to the end of that long run is totally worth it!

Cocoa Goodness Berry Smoothie

1 ripe banana (the riper the better, texture preferences taken into account)
~1/2c  frozen mixed berries (I don’t usually measure these)
1/2 c Plain, non-fat Greek Yogurt
1/3 c Cocoa Goodness LGF granola

Blend the first three ingredients until smooth. Top with the LGF granola, and grab a spoon!

Trust me, you’ll love it too.

  1. That park looks amazing and how fun would it be running through those sprinklers on the path?

    Score on the granola – that stuff looks and sounds gooood.

    I loved being handed a cold chocolate milk after my race – got to love a tri series called “Recharge with Milk” 🙂
