You know that reoccurring nightmare every runner has before a race where they sleep through their alarm and completely miss the start? Well, that nightmare finally caught up with me this morning. Only, I didn’t just miss setting my alarm – I completely forgot about the race!
I had registered for the Bare Dare 5k MONTHS ago (I even wrote a post promoting the race!), but for some reason I never put the race on my calendar. I knew the race was this morning, but since it wasn’t in bold on my calendar, my tired mind forgot about it when I went to bed last night. The sad part is that technically I woke up in plenty of time to get to the race, it just didn’t click that I needed to be out the door until it was too late. It wasn’t until I saw some tweets pop up about that race that I remembered I should have been there. Dratz!
So instead of racing this morning, I became a couch potato. I finished the first season of Once Upon a Time on NetFlix (can’t wait for the season 2 premiere tonight!) and watched the pilot of The Mindy Project ( loved it! Mindy is hilarious). Would I rather have been running? Probably – it would have been an AWESOME race – but spending some time being a couch potato wasn’t bad either. I can’t change it now, so there’s no sense beating myself up over it.
Have you ever accidentally slept through or forgot about a race you were registered for?
Question: What do you do when you’re in the mood for waffles, but are out of eggs?
Answer: Google “vegan waffles” 😉
Thankfully, I had all the ingredients on hand for this recipe. 20 minutes later – I had waffles.
The waffles were good. Nice and pumpkiny with just the right amount of spice. I liked how the recipe required an entire can of pumpkin and a good amount of cloves (I <3 cloves!).
I topped my waffles with raisins, walnuts, and some PB2.
No eggs needed.
