Noosa Sunday!

by hillarybiscay

Sunday mornings are a Noosa highlight. Sunday morning always meant a long, hot run and the farmer’s market with friends afterwards. These mornings are one of the things I miss most when I’m halfway across the world from my friends here and I can see them all sending messages to each other on twitter about meeting up at the markets.

But today I finally got to join in the fun again! Above was my attempt to capture the fact that Belinda and I looked like we had been swimming by the time we finished our run. Instead I captured the fact that my sunscreen sweated out and turned me into a ghost–and my fave new running outfit, courtesy of other BFF Mere!

We finished our run at the McKenzie house for Amanda’s famous acai bowls. In one of my more brilliant moves, I got her hooked on the stuff during our trip to Brasil for ironman last year—not just on the bowls but on mixing Tropical Tango Vega into them . . . yesssss! And since she is pretty much the chef extraordinaire, she now whips up restaurant-quality acai bowls with Vega right at home. Um, these were amazing.

After a quick shower it was time for the markets!

And more coffee, of course! I also loaded up on gluten-free/ vegan treats, bananas, and found some pumpkin hummus—yes, please! Then since at least 90 minutes had passed since the acai meal, I had some curried lentil soup for lunch.

After this little tour de coffee and food, I had better race hard next weekend!
