This is a bit of a belated Cabot Fit virtual race recap but I wanted to wait until it was officially November to announce our giveaway winner. If you missed it, Cabot Creamery held a virtual race to raise funds for Feeding America and local food banks. As a Cabot Fit team member, Cabot donated $100 to the Second Harvest Food Bank in Orlando! I love how they are all about giving back to the community!
I chose to run the 10K distance in no better place on earth than Auburn, AL. That’s where I started running in college so it is always nice to go for a run when we go back to visit. Plus we got to bundle up for part of it!
My bro, his girlfriend Kali, and Eric joined me for the run. It was more of a run/walk/and sightsee for me, with the bummed ankle but I was just happy to be out there and enjoying the weather.
The boys of course would run ahead of us and then we’d find them doing pushups while they waited on us. Talk about #CabotFit.
I was super glad to be running around campus again and there were lots of game day festivities going on.
Naturally, we stopped to pick some cotton. (Auburn has a big agricultural program.) I think it’s so neat to see how cotton grows. I couldn’t help myself.
We also ran over to one of my favorite running trails in Auburn! It feels so good to get off the road and immersed in nature.
I know you’re dying to see who won the Cabot Legacy Gift Basket huh? Well, Congrats to Amy M! Email me with your mailing address and Cabot will get the gift basket out to you to enjoy. YAY!! Congrats! And thank you to all who entered and participated in the virtual race!!
So onto the recipe for Roasted Cranberries and Quinoa Oatmeal! Lately, I haven’t been into oatmeal as much as I use to be (but the hubby is). I use to be a bowl-of-oatmeal-every-morning type of girl but I just LOVE eggs so much these days that I cannot sacrifice my eggs for oatmeal very often. I really enjoyed this bowl of Roasted Cranberries and Quinoa Oatmeal however because the quinoa gives the oats an even better texture!
And oh, about those roasted cranberries!! They will change your life. They are all cinnamonny and mapley and topped on a comforting bowl of quinoa oatmeal! Just know, a bowl of Roasted Cranberries & Quinoa Oatmeal will be sure to give you that holiday fever.
I’m so there. Michale Buble Christmas CD and all.
How about you? Are you in full on Christmas mode yet?Print
