Chocolate Dipped Oranges
I tried something new for a snack - chocolate dipped oranges. I melted some chocolate chips and coconut oil in the microwave. Then I dipped the oranges slices in the chocolate and chilled them in the refrigerator, which caused the chocolate to harden. Visit the Eat Live Run blog if you'd like more information on making these. Chocolate and oranges is a good combination!
It's taper time. My longest run this week will be the 12 mile run that I did last weekend. That was a good run with 15 minutes at a hard pace. At the end of the week, I'll run 10 miles with 10 minutes run at a hard pace. I've got a half marathon coming up on March 1 in The Woodlands, Texas. That's just north of Houston. I'm looking forward to race day!
