Hello Longevity Seekers!
How are you today? Long Living? Living Long?
The week is easing into SUNSHINE and I am easing into the week pretty nicely. What about you? What is the weather like today?
Have you meditated? Visualized? Even just 5 min – Do it! It will help immensely!
This Weekend in L.A…
My taste testers kids were in town this weekend!
One of them – the youngest – performed at the California Metal Fest!
Pretty cool for a kid that is only 14 years old! EXTREMELY cool to be a ROCK STAR at 14! GO IZZY!
What made it even better was his older brother graced us with the pleasure of spending the night!
This is always nice! I get to cook veggie food for kids and feed a wonderful appetite – healthfully and mindfully!
Ever since these kids were born my taste tester made sure to put instruments in their hands. They both seem to be quite successful at keeping music in their lives. Positive things, positive things!
We have made plenty of “Late Night Craigslist missions” for these guys! I am happy to see that it is all paying off! Drum pedals, amps, bass cases, etc. you name it – we have probably gotten it!
Growing up with a supportive parent is one of THE KEY TO SUCCESS! Don’t you think?
So that was Saturday and when Sunday arrived it was time for him to go! Always seems – just a blink of an eye and the kids are gone…but we will see them soon. I am hoping they will come and experience a race with us!
Although I planned on attending the Claremont Red Cross 10k – that thought was quickly out of my mind once I saw the rain! Heavy Rains!
Since I didn’t attend the race it gave me the opportunity to cook for “Nitro Roc” one last time.
RAW Smoothie attack!!!
Here is my RAW date strawberry banana RAINY SUNDAY smoothie prior to blending!
2 tbl RAW almond butter
1 bottle OXYGIZER water
Directions: Blend ALL INGREDIENTS until smooth!
OXYGIZER improves measurably performance during periods of high physical stress and the resulting regeneration phase. Univ. Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Marktl (Head of Science at the Institute of Medical Physiology at Vienna University) and his research team have completed their scientific ergometry tests. Using a randomised double-blind study, these tests have proven the effective infl uence and effect of OXYGIZER on the body’s performance capability.
Additionally, Sunday was the Los Angeles Marathon!
Ethiopia dominated the Los Angeles Marathon on Sunday!
Markos Geneti ran the 26.2 miles in 2hrs 6mins 35 seconds!
Coming in shortly after Geneti was Nicholas Kamakaya in 2hrs 9min 26sec!
Buzunesh Deba ran the marathon in 2hrs 26mins 34 secs.
Coming in shortly after Deba was Amy Hastings from the USA. This was her debut in the marathon. She completed the marathon in 2hrs 27min 3sec!
Great going ladies! YOU RULE!
Those are CRAZY times! The male winner also broke the LA Marathon record!
There were a total of 19,626 finishers on Sunday. 11,896 were men and 7,730 were women.
UPDATE MARCH 24, 2011: 19866 Finishers – 12045 M / 7821 F
Depending on the weather I may run a 10k Sunday. We’ll see. I will monitor the weather and figure it out by Saturday evening.
Stay tuned for more Musical Meditations, Race Reviews and Recipes!
I thought I would leave you with this image…
Love and Light!
