Relaxing in the Sun

by Meghann on February 28, 2009

It has been nothing, but relaxing and unwinding since our race adventure this morning.

Case in point: a nice glass of Cab poolside.

Now this is what I call relaxation. :)

I split 2 generous glasses of wine with Derek and was feeling fine.

After wine came snack time.

Nothing like Fruit Salad & 1/2 a Heath Bar inspired Blondie to get me through nap time.

Abbie betrayed me during nap time and found another snuggle buddy.

The whore!...jk

My legs were feeling pretty tight after all the rest, so I stretched with some Runner’s Yoga thanks to yogadownload.com.

In continuing with our Carb Loading theme of last night, we decided Individual Pizzas were on the menu for tonight.

We used pre-made Publix pizza dough to make three personal pan pizzas. I topped mine with Cauliflower, Broccoli, Carrot, Onion, Tomato, Mushroom, & Feta Cheese.

I had more Fruit salad on the side. It was GOOOD! and exactly what I needed. :)

I feel like my sweet tooth has been on fire today! I need to get away from all of these sweets. I had not one, but two desserts tonight!

First was a 1/2 cup of Edy’s Chocolate Brownie Ice Cream with a 1/4 Blondie crumbled on top.

Second, was a Thin Mint Girl Scout cookie, Caitlin had bought outside Publix today. The girl who sold it to her was just tooo cute for words!

Help! Help! Help!

So as of right now the forecast for tomorrow morning is not looking good. Rain, Rain, Rain…. :( I’m still crossing my finger and hoping for the best. Please cross your fingers too for bright sunshine for our half marathon.

I have ZERO experience with running in the rain, especially 13.1 miles. Does anyone have any rain advice they can share?!?!?! The race starts nice and early at 6am, right when the first rain cloud is suppose to explode. :(

Other then the rain threat, I feel great about the race tomorrow and no matter what I hope to rock it.

Wish me luck!!!!!!
