    Interesting products!!

    “It ended up tasting like a Vanilla-Strawberry-Peanut Butter Milk Shake”

    Sounds like a MAJOR winner to me!! 😀

    Hooray for Sarah in the bake sale!!

    I am so impressed that you ran seven miles before work. Go you!

    As for the You bars- they’re so expensive! The concept is really cool though, so maybe someday I’ll try them out.

    Good for you on your long run! I’m so impressed by what a good runner you are.

    I like the idea of the YouBars…too bad you didn’t like the flavor. After my wedding, when I don’t have to save money like a crazy person, I’d love to give them a try.

    What are you going to do with the Banana ones? Interested in some sort of blogger trade? I have some unopened jars of PB2….

    Good idea to mix the You Shake with strawberries and peanut butter! I have not tried that one yet so I am going to do the same!

    OMG, I just went to the YoBar site, and can we discuss how awkward their celebrity page is?!?! https://www.youbars.com/celebrities/

    HAHA, wow. What a fun company!

    That concept of build a bar sounds really cool! But even I love coffee and don’t think that sounds like a good bar combo!!
    Sweet discount!

    I’ve been wanting to try YouBars for awhile. Too bad you didn’t like that flavor. I love coffee, so I have a feeling I would enjoy that bar. Thanks for the 5% discount!

    Way to go on that run! That bar sounds fantastic to me – I love coffee 🙂

    Great job on the mileage! That bar sounds really good- I’m all for coffee in bar form 😉

    My daughter would love those coffee bars – she loves all things coffee!

    Thanks for the review and good job on the run this morning! 😀

    Great job on your run. Just curious – is it dark when you go out at 5:50? (I assume so…) I would love to run in the AM but it’s so dark…

      Yes, its dark, but I have pepper spray and its so quiet with no traffice I prefer it that way. 🙂

    Hi Meghann,
    I LOVE coffee, but it seems like that coffee flavored bar might be too intense, even for me!
    Question – I remember a few months ago you featured some advice on how to build a better blog. I have been unable to find those posts! Where are they? Thanks!

    7 mile AM run on a weekday?? Awesome!! That shake looks yummy and sweet…youbar is definitely a neat concept.

    WTG at slamming out the 7 mile run. You seriously should check out The Magic Bullet for your smoothies. I LOVE mine and use it for so many things. You can get them everywhere but have found that Costco (you can order them online) is the best deal because it includes a blender/juicer for the same price as other stores that do not have it.

    Have a fabulous Tuesday!

    Great job with the run this morning!

    Thanks for the YouBar review. Eating coffee in a bar form does not sound like fun!

    i love how few ingredents they have!

    I love the You Bar idea, but it’s definitely cost-prohibitive for me. I’d just eat a Larabar and call it a day 🙂

    7 miles on a weekday is awesome! Haha who am I kidding, 7 miles any day of the week is more than I’ve ever done. I really hope that someday I find as much joy in running as you do. I still get frustrated because I feel at this point (~6 months since starting the Couch to 5k) I should be better, faster, and fitter than I am. I’m trying to be patient with myself, but it’s HARD 😀

    I don’t think that bar would have been my taste, but your smoothie looked awesome, ice chunks and all! :]

    Sweet about the discount! I can’t wait to try the vanilla shake!
