protein pancakes

aaaahhh. Is all I can say today, A WHOLE DAY OFF. We finished our marathon yesterday in great spirits and finished the day in even better, knowing that this morning we didn’t have to rise before the crack of dawn.

Today then we started with a lengthy breakfast and a casual walk before heading into town to pick up a few supplies. The main and only task for the day: a make-shift attempt at home-made protein bars (unfortunatly those were all in the lost luggage.) The ingredients available to us: raisins, oats, granola, icing sugar, peanut butter, cocoa and lots of eggs. After a group effort to mix the heavy batter we’ve now set the concoction out in the sun to bake for as long as it needs.

(we picked up a few MARS bars to get us going in case this flops)

  1. So, maybe Drew will be carrying some protein laden luggage when he heads over to meet you in a couple of weeks?! Entertaining to read of your daily adventures and wonders. Keep healthy!

  2. Can the sun bake things or is it a recipe for salmonella? Mmm….salmon. That’s protein! Get it any way you can, eh?

    WAY TO GO for making the five–right on schedule! So proud of you all! Still praying for that luggage to come in…we can smell you from here!

    Remember: Lori Bowden, famed triathlete, put a Snickers bar on her bike during her Ironmans. Snickers. Yum. Protein, sugar, and laughter!

    Love to you ALL; we think about you TONS!

    Dear Reuben and Erin and companions.

    Oma is not impressed with the recipe for your Pancakes, she would LOVE to bake a whole heap of them for you. Also I could make you some pretty good porridge with those ingrediens.(if I had a fire). We follow your progress every day, and aim to take a daily walk of 4.2 km.
    But not the last few days , we have tons of Snow and at minus 10 deg F it’s not fun, we could use some of your hot temp to melt the snow.
    We think about you all the time and you are the main topic of our conversation,and visualize that you are sustained by God’s Love.
    Hope that things will work out well and that the luggage will yet arrive.
    It is about 5 am monday for you so that means you are getting ready for the second week of running.
    We would love to know the names of some of the villages that you pass through,so we can check if Google has a map for us to see.
    Be strong Be bold for the Lord your God is with you.
    Hugs ang Love from Oma and Opa

    Hey you guys, way to go on the 5 marathons!! Still praying for the luggage to come through. God can do miracles!! Thanks for the daily updates. We love to read them. Hope the day off was very restful and you are geared up for week two. You are all so awesome. Maybe you will want to try the new energy bars on a rest day??? Hope it was a very hot day when you left them to bake in the sun. 🙂
    God bless,
