Pumpkin Coconut Tea Latte

    For two days I have been walking like an old cowboy who just got off his horse.
    No I have not spent days in the saddle. Two days ago I came close to summiting San Bernardino Peak and my calves, butt and yes, even my shoulders are still feeling the burn. ( No, I did not hand stand my way to the top of the mountain. My shoulders hurt from carrying a moderately heavy back pack for twelve miles.)
    I did not have plans to do a work out of any kind this morning but I woke up to the power out.
    There would be no coffee, no heat and no Fox News this morning. I was cold, sleepy and grumpy that I couldn’t watch reruns of Shep Smith from yesterday.  So I decided to go for a run.
    I mean my only other option was clean the house,  talk to the cats, read or spy on my homeless neighbors. I just didn’t feel like being a creep or being a cat lady so off to the trails I went.
    Good thing I did because the marine layer was thick over the valley and unbelievably gorgeous this morning.
     The clouds were stacked up so thick at about three thousand feet and as my feet pounded the dirt trails above seven thousand feet I had a epic view of clouds so thick I felt like I would walk on them.
     My calves were aching like they would explode any second as I tried to wearily make my way up the steep hill sides. The only thing that kept me going was the fantastic views above seven thousand feet. The cloud coverage got thicker as I looked out to the west and Mt Baldy.

      After I accomplished a good four mile run without my calves exploding some how, I made my way back home to my cabin and the power was back on, oh think god!
      I was already awake and pumped from my run so I whipped up a Pumpkin Coconut Tea Latte in my nutri bullet.
      This tea latte just screams fall! Making it in the nutri bullet will foam it up like a latte  without  using a espresso machine!
