An interesting run and recipe

The run was interesting. The recipe is good.

Thursday morning I woke up around 6am and couldn’t decide if I wanted to do my long run on the dreadmill or outside. It was 20 degrees outside, which wasn’t a big deal because I’ve run in colder temperatures, so I decided to run outside.

I set out for a 15 mile run around 7:20 and all was well until mile 10 when it began to snow, lightly. By mile 11 it was really coming down and I couldn’t see well. The roads had ice on them but I couldn’t see it because the falling snow was covering it. Then I slid on ice (but didn’t fall.. huzzah!). I was about a mile from home and I was nervous that I was going to fall or something!

Luckily I made it home safe and sound! It was interesting.


Now onto the recipe:

Corn muffins


-1 cup all purpose flour

-1 cup corn meal

-1 teaspoon baking powder

-1/4 teaspoon salt

-1 1/2 tablespoons honey

-1 egg

-1/4 cup oil

-1 cup milk


Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a muffin tin that holds 12 muffins. Mix the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl.

In a small bowl mix the egg, honey, and milk until fluffy. Mix the liquids into the flour bowl and stir lightly, until just combined.

Pour into muffin pan and bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.




  1. I’ve run when there was snow on the ground (not much snow) but not when it was snowing. Then again it doesn’t snow much here anyway, lol. I’m more likely to be found running in 90+ degree heat! Those corn muffins look really tasty and cute too- it’s a good picture of them, my baked good never look that good even if they taste allright. Glad you’re okay and didn’t get hurt after the fall during the run, too.
