Chocolate-covered pretzels are one of my favorite snacks before an afternoon swim or bike ride. I grab a few on my way out the door for a blast of carbs. They also make great road trip food, especially when mixed into a big bag of trail mix with roasted almonds,dried fruit, and toasted coconut.
I always attempt a holiday baking project with my nieces and nephews. This year, I settled on decorating pretzels to give the kids a break from the constant flow of homemade sugary treats.
This post from last year is definitely worth revisiting, especially since we have a year's worth of finisher medals ready to be turned into ornaments. I just put the Half Full Triathlon's crab shaped medal on the tree--my favorite. Are you turning any of your favorite medals into ornaments this year? Which ones??
Like a lot of triathletes, I rely on my blender to fix quick meals year round. In the spring and summer when I'm training all the time, I make smoothies almost every day to pack in calories and nutrients with minimal effort. This fall, I used the blender as a soup-making machine to stock my freezer so that come January, John and I can enjoy a home cooked meal when we’re sleepwalking through new parenthood.
