Barefoot Mama

"I started running barefoot in March 2008. I started one step at a time, one day at a time. I decided to start keeping a journal of sorts. Sharing my history, my journey and my adventures."

I have taken some new paths in relation to my running over the last year. This blog will still include my running adventures but I have to move on with more stories of my family and the journey we have taken together over the last year. This blog was started as a way to help me record my barefoot journey but now needs to become more than that. Please be patient as I explore ways to stay connected with family and friends.

The Sport Gel Recipe I made for my long runs.

Thanks to the no meat athlete web site for posting the recipe.
I made the following modifications.

Raw Lemon-Lime Sport Gel Recipe (from Thrive)

I only put in about 1/8 cup agave nectar (it's REALLY sweet with any more than that)

I didn't put in the dulse (what the heck is that anyway?)

I brewed some organic green tea and added about 4 oz. for some caffeine

I suppose like any recipe I use, I use it as a guideline and substitute for my own tastes. I actually like the date chunks.
