Reason to Run: Scones

What better reason to run then homemade blueberry scones? And we're not talking about scones from Starbucks or your local coffee shop.

This morning our usual group of 5 runners plus two newbies met at our usual Starbucks on Kavanaugh to run at 5:30 AM. As we made our first few steps into the cold air, Alan counted us and announced that he had scones for everyone at the end of the run. Not just regular scones, scones made from scratch in some new fancy way that definitely made them better.

So, I was tired and decided when I got up this morning to only run 4 or 5 miles. Our quicker than usual pace reinforced the decision. I had even decided to forego the scones and stick with my plan to cut a couple miles. Well, the more I ran the better I felt and somewhere around 3 and a half to 4 miles I changed my mind and decided I was running 6 after all. Running for scones became my mantra, and it was worth every calorie. We all know runners love to eat and I'll run for scones any day! (or for my usual oatmeal or Kashi Go Lean cereal for that matter....but those scones were definitely delicious...) Thanks for the awesome treats!
