Top5 Running SongsI never listen to music while running

Top5 Ever Songs: these are my evergreens:

  • The Gaslight Anthem - Blue Jeans & White T-Shirts

Favorite Pre-Race meal: espresso and oats with banana and peanut butter

Wanna share a recipe? of course! Here are my chocolate-PB energy balls. You’ll need:

  • ½ cup of oats
  • 1 cup of soft/soaked dates
  • ½ cup of peanut butter
  • ½ of shredded coconut
  • ⅓ cup of unsweetened cacao powder   

Start by blending oats und dates until you have a sticky dough.  Add the rest of the ingredients und blend until well combined. Form the dough into (around 12) balls and store in the fridge.
