Running Fuel : New Spring Flavors to Look For

I am SO happy that Spring is upon us now! I can actually go outside in short sleeves with OUT a jacket, Hallelujah!  Another sign that winter has come to an end is that I have ONE Iced Gingerbread Clif bar left. Remember that case I bought last year? I am actually surprised they lasted this long, but to be honest, I hadn't been running, so I hadn't been eating them. I think Scott had been eating them for breakfast on the go!

So now I must be on the look out for some new Spring flavored running fuels.

1. Clif Bars: The new Clif bar flavors for Spring are Berry Pomegranate Chia and Nuts and Seed.  I also saw that they have an Apricot  flavored one out too that I want to try.

  In addition to the bars, Clif also has some new

10 Blog Post ideas for when you are feeling un-inspired

Earlier this week we talked about our thoughts on blogging. Between the two of us we generally don't have a problem with coming up with content.

The Life Span of a blog

 We are now heading into our third year of blogging. Sometimes we wonder how long we can actually sustain this blog. We often wonder if we will ever run out of things to blog about. We wonder if what we write is relevant, are we interesting, and are we helping people?  As you can see, we always have a LOT to say so running out of content is something we probably don't have to worry about anytime soon. Now whether or not you find our content relevant  to you, is up to you.

Today we wanted to share with you some of our blogging thoughts.

A Peek in Our Week and a little questionnaire


Happy Monday good friends!  How did you celebrate the first weekend of Spring? Did you race? I can't wait to hear about all the folks that ran the Shamrock 8k, half marathon, and marathon in Virginia Beach this weekend. As you may know, Lacey usually runs the Shamrock marathon. The weather during that race has not been very pleasant the last few years so she opted not to run this weekend. Instead, she was soaking up some Florida sunshine.  I got a call from her the other day and she was on her way to the beach!   I on the other hand
