I suck at running this week and a Vegan Curry recipe

This week was a big win on the clean eating and training. I got in all my runs, as planned and met all my nutrition goals.


Well not quite…….

Even though I got all my runs in, Friday’s 6.5KM and Saturday’s 8KM run were absolutely the worst! I had ZERO energy, “heavy legs”, and the SLOWEST pace I have ran in a long long time!

Jamrock Vacation Recap and….it is my 100th post!


whats up

Guess what……

This is my 100th Post on my New Blog! The Tipsy Runner!!!!

Wellllll……that might be a bit of a stretch…….


Ok ok…..Getting on with it!

We got back from Jamaica on Sunday morning at 2am……..(We were having so much fun I barley took any pictures…..I just didn’t think about it….Now I am a bit sad!)

I think Shane was particularly happy to get back to Jamaica for a visit since his Mom grew up there (Dunns River Falls) he seems to have a strong connection with all things Jamaican!

We arrived in Montego Bay Tuesday around lunch time, and headed to the resort…….It was raining a bit on the way there….But no worries it cleared up by mid afternoon and the sun shone the rest of our vacation!


The view from our room was beautiful! It was great to wake up to the Ocean waves every morning!

CHOCO-PB Smoothie

Here is a super delish Smoothie….Great for Pre-Run!

Choco-PB Soothie

  • 1 scoop vanilla protein (your choice, I use plant based but whey is fine if you have it)
  • 1 Tablespoon Natural Peanut Butter
  • 1 small Banana
  • 1 teaspoon Chia Seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon cacao nibs
  • 1 Cup Unsweetened Cashew Milk (or any non-dairy milk)
  • Ice

Blend until smooth

Cacao Nibs are great for pre workout…….

“Cacao Nibs contain a constituent known as “theobromine,” an alkaloid structurally similar to that of caffeine, that occurs in greater quantities in cacao and that acts as a stimulant and promotes strength, endurance, and enhanced mood.”


So friggin good!

go down

It just did!


Camo goes with everything!

Seams like I have had a bazillion cupcake orders this summer!
