We had such a great time during our run in wine country in July that we couldn’t wait to race again. This time for the Niagara Running Series’ Race for the Grapes in St. Catharines, Ontario.
The night before we took a stroll through downtown St. Catharines and carb loaded for our race with treats from Rise Above Bakery.
Just a really lovely bakery that offers ALL vegan options! So you can munch happily away on your brownies and muffins – with no guilt!
And yes while their brownies, muffins, and other baked goods looked really really good, we were here for one thing, and one thing only: DONUTS!
While they didn’t quite top the vegan donuts from TBC, we still happily enjoyed every bite! Our favourites flavours were the Green Tea donut and the Raspberry Lemon donut.
The next day we managed to get up early and run 5k powered on these donuts (and also a lovely breakfast at our B&B – more on this later)
Overall a fantastic little bakery, and by the way – they also serve a pretty interesting looking brunch on the weekends.
Here’s to more donut powered runs! Om nom nom nom nom…
