    Your cookie looks wonderful – especially the fruit. I am such a fan of mango. And I agree that getting started is, on some days, the really tough part.

    I have been meaning to try breakfast cookie making.

    I love the baker spotlight! It’s a very cute idea!

    I agree about the getting started being the hardest part. Also, the first two miles are always much tougher for me than any of the others.

    oh man i totally agree with you about getting out the door- it’s so funny how those first couple of steps can be the hardest! sometimes it even takes a mile or so for me to get into my groove, but i always tell myself that i’ll be glad i stuck it out, and i always am!

    My friend has a quote on her fridge, “if you had put on your shoes and left when you first thought of going for a run, it would be over by now”.

    I completely agree with you! For me it’s getting out of bed and THEN getting out the door. When I’m strapping on my ipod, I’m like “ughhh”. Way to get it done!! Any YUM on that cookie!

    Great job on your run today. I know what you mean about walking out the door – and that cold air hitting you in the face. That, combined with the fact that I HATE waking up, makes me an evening runner 🙂 Though I wish I had the urge to get up and go in the morning.

    Great Baker Spotlight – Heather is great 🙂

    The hardest part of running is the effect it has on my knees.

    For me, the hardest part about running is getting my butt out of bed. Once I am up, I know that I WANT to run. I set my coffee make at night and it turns on 7 minutes before I get up. Once I hear that sound, I usually have no problem getting up 😉

    I love Heather and Mark’s blog, especially her recent video taste test of Greek Yogurt!

    And I think most people have that problem – but once you get going, there’s no stopping you!

    Anybody who goes running before work is my hero, I just can’t do it!
    Your breakfast cookie looks great, I’ll be making one of those this weekend for sure.

    I swear, every morning it is a STRUGGLE to get out that door, but once I get about 15 minutes in, I’m fine. Its even worse now that I’m trying not to drink 1/2 a pot of coffee before heading out. I’m thinking a cattle prod might help things out.

    Oats and pineapple are a great combo!

    I love the tropical breakfast cookie! I hate walking out into the cold and warming up for the first few minutes with the worry of ‘can I finish?’ I usually don’t feel really great until 15-20 minutes into a run.

    The hardest part for me is totally is getting out of my warm bed and leaving my sweetie behind to go work out. I just feel so TIRED 98% of the time when I wake up, but then once I actually get going, it’s great, of course.

    I still haven’t tried the breakfast cookie. I think I’ve been hestitant because I’m not the greatest fan of overnight oats and these seem like they’d be about the same in consistency and flavor. Maybe this weekend though, just like Danielle, I’ll give it a go.

    Totally agree with you on the hardest part of running. Once I’m out the door I’m SO happy I went, but sometimes I have to be dragged out of the house!

    Oh, and yes, Heather’s Olive Oil Muffins were amazing! I’m so glad I got to meet her recently and praise her cooking skills in person! 🙂
    Can’t wait for the next bake sale!

    I am always kinda nervous to try a breakfast cookie because I am afraid I will mess it up and have to through it out! Thanks for the tip 🙂

    The hardest part about running is definitely walking out the front door in the morning for me. Something about that cold, dark world outside always brings out the inner whiny runner in me. The best tip I have is to just do it, I tell myself that if ten minutes into it I want to turn around I can, but of course ten minutes into it I’m rocking and rolling in those fabulous endorphins and can run forever : )

    That’s how I make my breakfast cookie too…way easier that way and they come out great!

    The hardest part of running for me is the first 2 miles. I never feel good during the first 2, but once I get going I could run forever!

    Mmm, breakfast cookies! And I agree that getting started is the hardest part. On rare occasions, I’ve been known to take off my running gear and put back on my lounging clothes. So bad!

    I have those same snowflake plates! I’m excited that it’s almost time to put them away… yay spring!

    As much as I was convinced that I wouldn’t like running nor be any good at it, I’ve got to agree! Just getting out the door is always the hardest part! Then I end up doing something I’ve come to love and feel accomplished for the many hours to come :).

    OMG I had a hiatus from being able to read all of my fave blogs and I just read like 10 of your posts in one sitting! I missed you!!!! 🙂

    Also I’m jealous that the hardest part about running is just stepping out the door! That’s just the first battle for me…then there’s the inner battle when I feel the first hint of sweat, and the war when I start to breathe hard, and the fight when I get bored/tired/sore/frustrated…

    Yeah. I need to work on that.

    i have to agree with you – looking out into the miserable & rainy weather as it was this morning, it was SO hard not to stay glued to my warm house! if you think it gets cold and horrible in florida, think about the ever-foggy london!!

    you bfast looks super 🙂

    I haven’t tried the breakfast cookie, yet but everyone keeps talking about it so I may have to!
