An Easy Weekend Recipe to Try + 10k

Oh hey, did I mention that I'm running a 10k this weekend? You know the one I've hardly trained for?

If you read the introduction post you know that I used to be a pretty serious runner.

For four years straight I ran 100 miles a month - every month. No exceptions. 

I always said that it 'kept me accountable', but really what it did was held me back from discovering the amazing world of fitness that I now understand to be weight lifting, high intensity training and dance class. It also kept me from that thing called 'balance' that I try so hard to achieve in my life these days.

Here in 2014 I've only ran a total of 14 miles (hello, it's April!) and I have a simple goal for the 10k - to finish under 55 minutes.

But today isn't all about me - it's about you too!

Yesterday I had a reader ask about a healthy breakfast idea so I want to send you into the weekend with a simple three ingredient recipe from the archives that you can try, no experience necessary.

You'll need:

Veggies (any kind you want - 1 cup per serving)
Eggs (2 per serving)
Chicken Sausage (1 link per serving)
7 minutes to prepare, 3 minutes to devour it maybe that's just my time

Let me know if you try it this weekend by tagging @JessiFitPDX in your instagram food photo.

Wish me luck on the 10k and do something for yourself this weekend!
