An Inspiration for Creativity and a Tasty Snack

For this week,
1) Boston Marathon's pre-race non-dairy dinner sponsor!
2) an inspiring National Geographic video!
3) and a simple and oh so tasty snack! 

I'm settling nicely into my taper, and getting excited to have another try at the Boston Marathon! It's been 6 years since my first experience in an extraordinary year! 2013 Boston Marathon Post: Heartbreak Like None Other . As a sign of a change in the times, it's exciting that the pre-race dinner is sponsored by a non-dairy brand - Almond Breeze! You used to hear so much about chocolate milk for athletes; heck, I even gave that advice years ago! Now, Canada isn't recommending dairy, and Boston Marathon is open to alternatives!

"Find guides - people who are in love with their life. See the world through their eyes" -- Dewitt Jones. Dewitt left the greatest impression on me when I first heard him talk, and he was speaking with a talented weaver, and asked her what she thinks about when she weaves, and her response still stays with me: "When I weave, I weave." It's a simple reminder of mindfulness, and staying IN the PRESENT moment. When I do, the peace I feel is a lot like Dewitt describes...full, in love, passionate! And I'll add a couple of my words: satisfied, bursting!
