Run. Eat. Listen. Watch. Read. 10/25/15

Happy Sunday, lovelies! I’m off to run the Poland Springs 5M Marathon Kickoff in Central Park this morning on my way to crossing off #7 of the 9 races I need to qualify for the New York City Marathon next year. As most of you know, I like to use my running time as my thinking time, and these are just a few of the things I’ve been pondering as I run…or read, or bake, or walk to work. Enjoy the links in this round of Run. Eat. Listen. Watch. Read. (Look at August, early and late September to see what caught my eye then…)

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake Bars

As promised in Wednesday’s and Thursday’s posts, here comes a decadent, delectable recipe for Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake Bars! One of the tougher aspects of gluten free baking is that I can never be absolutely sure that the treats I bake taste as good as what most people consider ‘the real thing’. I used to be able to bring treats somewhere and have people tell me they were good before they knew I was gluten free, but now pretty much everywhere I’d bring any food, everyone knows, whether family or friends. So when I set out to make something special for my dad’s birthday this year, I used my brother as an honest taste-tester so I could be absolutely sure that what I cooked up was fit for the occasion.

Eating Gluten Free in England

Hello and happy Wednesday! I returned yesterday from my fortnight-long excursion across the pond, and I hope you all enjoyed following along with me as much as I loved being there. In case you missed anything so far…

My Pond Hopping Trip

Part 1: First Days in London

Part 2: Hiking and Eating in the Lake District

Part 3: More Lakes Adventures and Fun

Part 4: Workouts and Running Hyde Park

10 Tips For Running in London

 

Tomorrow I’ll be sharing my further thoughts on the trip as a whole, but since this is the day of the week when lots of us like to showcase our eats, I figured I’d take the opportunity to talk about what it was like to eat gluten free in England, both in London and in the countryside.

Pond Hopping Part 1: London Run and Brunch

Greetings from England! I thought I wasn’t going to post while here, but I have so much I want to jot down so I can remember it for myself that I changed my mind. It’ll be a picture per sentence kind of day since I’m writing on my iPad and have spent all day out and about, but here’s a look at the first three days of my trip across the pond 🙂

Run. Eat. Listen. Watch. Read.

I’m kicking off the weekend here at Renaissance Runner Girl with a new kind of post. You’re probably familiar with the weekly or monthly Link Love posts on other blogs, and those are pretty similar to what I’ll be doing here. I find that I always bookmark a bunch of blog posts, newspaper articles, and the like and then never get around to actually reading them at my leisure, or save ten recipes without ever trying the first, so I’m hoping this will be a better way to collect everything. I probably won’t do them every week – then again, I said that when I began doing WIAW posts and look what happened 😉 I’ll be dividing into Run, Eat, Listen, Watch, and Read for now. So here’s what I’ve been reading, munching, and so forth in no particular order!
