Miracle Match Marathon Relay

Awesome day today!! I got participate in the Miracle Match Marathon Relay. I was the first leg of my team running 5.8 miles in 58.56 min....(I'm pretty proud of that considering I'm not really in running distance shape!!!).  I handed off to Hunter who ran a good 8 miles.  Then Christie ran uphill for 7 miles.  Matt (and Hunter actually joined him) ran our anchor leg through the trails of Cameron Park for 6 miles! We crossed the finish line together a little over 4 hours.  Not bad for a few first timers :)

Here are our before and after shots!!

The atmosphere at these races is great!  Every time I finish I'm amped to sign up for the next one!!  So proud of our team and for all who came out to run!!

Oooey, Gooey, Goodness


I got this yummy little treat from Brittany over at FunWithTheFullwoods and it is officially my favorite!!

It is a cookie/brownie combo of greatness!!

What you need.....

  • 1 package (18 To 21 Oz. Box) Fudge Brownie Mix
  • 1-¼ cup All-purpose Flour
  • ¼ cups Packed Brown Sugar
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • ½ cups Butter, Melted And Cooled
  • 2 Tablespoons Water, Or More As Needed
  • 1 cup Chocolate Chunks

  • What you do......

    1. Whisk together brownie mix, flour, and sugar.
    2.Using a heavy spoon, stir in the eggs one at a time, followed by butter and 2 tablespoons water. If the batter appears like there is too much flour, add 1 more tablespoon of water. Batter will be very thick.
    3. Fold in chocolate chunks
    4. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
    5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    6. Grease a cookie sheet.
    7. Drop heaping tablespoons of dough on the cookie sheet. You want pretty thick cookies here to get the brownie feel, about 3 inches apart. Press down slightly. Don’t flatten completely. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
    8. Remove from oven, allow to cool 2 minutes on cookie sheet. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely

    These are truly the best cookies/brownies EVER!!
