"Who Dat Girl" - Flo Rida

Uhhhhh uhhhhh.

Yep.

It's
Jess.

There is nothing like kindness.

"How beautiful a day can be



When kindness touches it!"


~George Elliston


This.
Girl.
Rocks.

On Saturday, I received these:



Yep.
the.
Famous.

4 ingredient protein bars.

Yes.  you.  will.  want.  the.  recipe.

Click [here] to get it.

I had to put eight in the freezer.  What?  I totally trust myself.



I'm not disclosing how many I've already eaten.  But I did the math and they are calorie freaking free.  So I'm off to my freezer.  I'm useless

It's like freezing your credit cards in ice.  A good thought but seriously way to easy to undo.

Thank you Jess.

Your kindness has made my March already.

Indoors!

Emz said...

J-moo. Nice. So creative.

Jess @ Blonde Ponytail said...

Awwww EMZ!! Thank you for my warm fuzzy of a post!! YOU made my month!!! I'm so so so happy you liked them!! They in fact are zero calories, cause instant muscle definition, increase speed and reverse all signs of aging...okay, so I exaggerate! but, they are healthy snack options!!

Karine said...

I'm thinking I can't qualify for the awesome gift but you might think about a gift for ME for keeping the location secret!

Matty O said...

At the actual facility that you are raising mula and awareness for :)

Those look amazing.

misszippy said...

Love Jess and I am going to click on that recipe, non-fat burning lifestyle that I have right now be damned!

Not at your own house? Moving a treadmill outside somewhere might be tough, so it's not that. Somewhere in Sedona with a nice big window would help...I give!

Jason said...

This is easy...The P-Nuts school !!!!

I am a medium in the RUN EMZ shirt size please.

Thank you.

Have a great day and you know a foodie/endurance athlete like me is click, click, clicking away.

H Love said...

Gotta love Blond Pony! Those things are good! Enjoy! Glad your day is bright!

Rose said...

Those look YUM.

I'm guessing: a local YMCA?

Also, I totally ditched the Costco bun. I did get funny looks for taking pictures of myself, but they were just jealous of the deliciousness I was feasting upon.

Katie said...

i'm jamming to this akon song right now myself. who dat girl!

Big Daddy Diesel said...

Ok, not outdoors in the Valley in May, too hot, you will melt

I say Sedona

AND

This is cool

My first outdoor Triathlon is that weekend of your run, I will be suffering along side (for about 2 hours, then I am eating pizza)

BabyWeightMyFatAss said...

What a great way to celebrate my bday (the 6th!) and I'll think of you on the 7th when I do my half marathon post injury!! You are awesome!!

Kovas said...

Suspended in the air above Times Square. No wait, that's been done. On the Skybridge above the Grand Canyon? (That would be a good place to do it, actually, what a view.)

Caratunk Girl said...

I like Kovas's canyon idea. Shoot, I don't know...I am going for...your house jammin to tunes.

You freaking rock. Wow, that is coming right up!

Gracie (Complicated Day) said...

Have I mentioned your amazingness? I'm guessing your run will be...in the Louisiana Superdome so I can visit and spoon pudding into your mouth as you run. And sing up beat songs to keep you going. Ha!

Michelle said...

OK - I'm all over that recipe - those look good!

I'm guessing the Sojouner Center?

Julie said...

There is NO WAY I could have those in my house...

My guess....a mall or store?

TRI714 said...

those look awesome and Im jealous. Im guessing on a treadmill positioned on an outdoor patio with some kick butt view.

The Hungry Runner Girl said...

Those look amazing!!! I hope your treadmill marathon is somewhere absolutely amazing!!!

Melissa Cunningham said...

CLICK,click,yummmmm!
may have to modify those bars a bit!

my guess is somewhere,indoors,for a good cause....

:)

Patrick Mahoney said...

On another planet? You'd fit right in and hopefully gravity is a little lighter there.

Shellyrm ~ just a country runner said...

Yum! I need those. NEED I tell you.

I agree, the Sojouner Center.

But Patrick's answer is way funnier!

Sarah said...

What's in the protein bars?

Caroline said...

Arizona Mills Mall

hey see who WON last night??

Emz said...

caroline. ugg. I did. ;)

Sarah: whey, PB, honey, oats. yum. yum. yum

Nelly said...

those bars look great! gotta love presents!

For your treadmill run location, I'll go with on the U of A campus, haha

Though I love Kovas' idea over the Grand Canyon, make it happen!

Caroline said...

I got to tell you that this morning I had a tempo run with intervals and I wanted to give up in the middle of it and I don't know why all I could think about was the pics you posted of you on the treadmil for the review you did and that got me through it, I kept telling myself run like EMZ!! I did not give up!

Emz said...

caroline.

I am all smiles. ALL. smiles.

Happy Emz [even with the *cough* Duke *cough* win].

thank you for telling me this. happy. happy. happy.

Marlene said...

Ohh those bars look good! And 4 ingredients? Even I cna handle that! Thanks for linking the recipe!

XLMIC said...

Those bars do look amazing. A. May. Zing.

So you'll be running on my birthday and can't come to my party then :( No! You are doing the run at MY house so you can be AT the party WHILE you run! lol

You will be doing it some place where LOTS of people will see... and there will be a treadmill there... and running.... those are the Blues Clues and I am stumped.

Jill said...

Bring your TM to Colorado and I'll be your pacer! :)

Candice @ I Have Run said...

The cultural hall?

Actually I was gonna guess your house. There's no other place I would rather run.

Jim ... 50after40 said...

ASU Stadium with 80,000 cheering you on!

Candice @ I Have Run said...

OK, maybe Nordstroms would be a fitting place too. Kind of like your home away from home. A treadmill would be a nice touch in the middle of the shoe dept.

Emz said...

Candice. I'd be lying if I said I didn't think of that. Love it.

Jess @ Blonde Ponytail said...

24 hours on the mill--I have no idea?!?! Hopefully, on a stage in Scottsdale with Peanut and Pita in their "RUN EMZ" t-shirts cheering you on. And a new pair of heels waiting when you finish!!

Kelly Leigh said...

omg LOOOOOOOOVE that recipe! eeeeek I love recipes. yum!

My guess is at the YMCA

Karen R said...

The protein bars look yummy!

The run. Hmmmm. In the middle of a crowded casino? :)

Trish said...

No guess for me! You're far too clever ;)

And woo hoo! yet another excuse to eat peanut butter!!

Will said...

We run to eat...that is all that matters!

Rad Runner said...

Freaking yum tastic!!!!!! I cant wait to make em!

Molly said...

hmmmmm, I have no idea where your run will be. But the 7th is my son's birthday, so that's good luck. : )

Char said...

Food that comes in the form of gifts is ALWAYS calorie free.

cheryl said...

Thanks for the recipe! They look way yummy...
I'm gonna say....at some gym in Phoenix area-
I will have to get back to you on this as I don't know the area very well, but I bet it's one that is BIG and gets lots of Press and people...

Happy Training!

Jeff - DangleTheCarrot said...

So can you stop to pee on the TM? Or are you going to go all triathlete and just pee on yourself? What are you gonna eat? Too much GU could be bad for the GI. I'd get a bunch of sandwiches - tell a local Subway to sponsor you. Are you allowed to walk like in an ultra? You can just pretend you are going up a hill? Are you going to try for a 100mi? 100mi in 24hrs is like a sub-3hr marathon in the ultra world right? So many questions ... I know! Inquiring minds want to know! (remember that dumb slogan?)

Her Name Is Rio said...

Hmmmm...in a clothing store? Perhaps one that sells some nice shoes to look at while running?

Zaneta said...

ok, those bars look pretty delicious... and you're running on a treadmill on a rocket to outter space... just sayin... that'd be freakin awesome ;)

RoseRunner said...

Lame guess, but 24 hour fitness. blah.

Mel -Tall Mom on the Run said...

LOVE LOVE Jess :)

Hmm on top of a really tall building with an awesome view so you feel like you are running outside??

The Green Girl said...

Your local YMCA. Or YWCA - do those even exist?

Silly Girl Running said...

I'm so making these peanut butter bars for my next long run! :) I already stalked Jess' website for the recipe...that's just me. ;)

And where? Hmmm...the gym I go to? Pretty please? ;)

Teresa said...

Love it

btw, bird nest (www.geocities.jp/hongkong_bird_nest/index_e.htm) is made up of about 58% soluable proteins...the highest amoung all food and even synetic protein powders

it greatly increase tissue regeneration

AM-GoalsfortheWeek! said...

Hey there!
that was so sweet/cool of Jess!

Dang!;-)

and again...how do we procure one of your shirts...?;-)

Amanda@runninghood said...

Awww, I LOVE Jess! She's so wonderful! I love her sticker too! I didn't get the bars though. :( :)

So, who is your friend meeting up with Chris in Dubai?? Is she traveling there or does she live there? Curious.

This 24 hour TM run...I'm impressed! Happy Friday!

She said I need a goal said...

Holy commnets!! Treadmill race will be held at your house? ummmm on a treadmill? Stop with the hard questions already, it's Friday and I've been working since 8:30, and I've been working hard and my head hurts and I'm still 30 minutes away from having a beer.

ps - our team shirts were not running shirts, they are tri shirts so I'm looking into getting tech run shirts made because everyone seems to want them. Will keep you posted..

I already know. your secret is safe with me, or is it?
