Today, I am running a gentle 5k race in Stockholm with a couple of friends and for the occasion I prepared some healthy energy balls, in a new version: raw, spicy, packed with nuts and a wonderful lime flavor!
If the 5k challenge is not to worry about, it’s always good to be well prepared and eating well before the race. Your body feels much more prepared, and so does your mind. And also, it’s the perfect excuse to eat sweet healthy treats that will bring you all the energy you need.
I ran this race last year with a bunch of friends and we had a lot of fun, so we’re doing it again this year. To begin with, the race takes place in a beautiful environment in the midst of green nature and woods around Stockholm University, in the northern part of Stockholm. Spring is blooming everywhere around Stockholm these past few weeks and it’s a real pleasure to run outside.
In addition, when running VårRuset race, you get a small picnic for free, so the party goes on! Running when the goal is food works very well on me as you might well imagine! This picnic idea is also the perfect occasion for us to build a delicious potluck around which everyone from our small group brings some delights to make the picnic even more decadent….
