This & That
I received a package in the mail because I follow ClifBar on Twitter. I was only expecting the bar and... 100 calories and 4 bites later... It's good. I ate it just now so that I could tell you what I thought. Oh, what I'll do for my blog! I was surprised to also receive strawberry ShotBloks, which I know are chewy, but good, and their "new formula" strawberry gel, which I haven't had before. (Update: like the gel! Tastes like jam.)
I hope I can run enough miles to need a gel soon. I had a great six mile run with hills at the beginning of the week, but then I had to cut a couple of runs short because my right ankle hurt. Today I was so glad to run almost 4 1/2 miles before it bothered me, so it's improving.
Yesterday I bought some cranberry juice so that I can add it to my fruit smoothies. Need more breakfast ideas? Lately, I've been eating wheat toast with honey or oatmeal with lots of toppings before I run.
