PB Chocolate Almond Clusters

Hi Friends!

Thanks for all the well wishes on the race yesterday! It went really well. It was the first year this 5K was put on and everything went really smoothly. It was sponsored by Panera and raised money for breast cancer research. I ran it in 27:37 and my goal was to finish in the 27th minute so hurray! I ran the whole thing without stopping and felt great afterwards! Already contemplating running another icon smile PB Chocolate Almond Clusters

And now, a fun little snack for you! Couldn’t be easier.
