Who Needs Energy Gels?
It's that time of the year again. Time to leave the energy gels and flavored sports drinks at home. These days, there are so many ripe blackberries to pick along my favorite local trails that it is hard not to stop and grab a handful.
Just make sure you bring some extra water so you can wash your hands after you're done picking and don't forget to watch your step in the blackberry bushes. The other day, I almost stepped on a rattlesnake while I was reaching for some tasty berries!
Here is the (remainder of a) blackberry pie that Vicky made the from the fresh berries we picked after a recent run. Yum!
