I headed out for what was supposed to be a 10km run. It took forever for my mussels to warm up. My hamstrings have been tight lately.

When I saw this, the first thought to go through my mind was this

Power Balls

I usually call these Power Balls but I have seen them referred to as Energy Bites. Either way they are delicious and pack a great energy Punch. These are a great pre workout snack, coming in around 100 Calorie each.
