It Must be the Pancakes

On Saturdays, I usually make Chocolate Chip pancakes for the kids.  I finally perfected the recipe. I have added ¼ cup of sugar and ¼ cup of water.  They come out perfect.  I also love eating pancakes.  I could not resist my most recent batch..  I always try one or two when I am preparing them, this time I had five!! They were that good. I was not worried, as I was planning on going for a long run Saturday night after the kids went to bed. 

Long runs on Saturday nights are easier to do. I am with the kids all day and we usually go for long walks and hop from one playground to the next.  My legs are usually pretty warmed up before I get out there.  I was preparing to run 5 miles and then switched to 6 in the middle of the run.  After turning around and was on my way back home, I still felt fresh.  I decided to add a mile and make it an even 7.  Even as I was running uphill to go from mile 5 to mile 6, I was still moving at a fast pace. 

I could have kept going, but 7 miles was enough this time. I did not want to overdue it.  Pancakes are my secret weapon.  What is yours?
