Autumn Run


Post-Run Smoothie

Today I’m off to run the Nairn Half Marathon.  13 miles is a distance I’ve done a few times now but I always feel a little nervous about running in events beside real runners.  I still feel like an impostor runner, for some reason.  Why is that???   I mean I move at a pace considerably faster than a walk. I sweat.  I pant.  I even make my own recovery smoothies, for Goodness’ sake!  So why don’t I feel like a proper ‘runner’?

I don’t know.  What I do know is that this is my favourite post-run smoothie and I’ll be having one today.
