Marathon Momentos

by Meghann on June 9, 2009

My to do list is slowly depleting itself.

  • Buy Cooler
  • Start Laundry
  • Map out road trip
  • Hide Phone in bottom of the purse so won’t be tempted to check e-mail while driving

I was happy to finally have a dry afternoon to place the bumper sticker Caitlin had given me on my car.

I’m usually not a fan of bumper stickers, but I felt I earned the right to have this one on my car. 🙂

When ever I head to a race site and I’m not 100% sure where it is, I always look for cars with running themed bumper stickers to show me the way. Now someone will know to follow me too, though I won’t guarantee I’ll lead them in the right direction. lol

I also got around to framing my Bib & Medal from San Diego.

Bobbi’s Husband gave me the idea for this and I thought it was a great one. It’s the perfect way to remind me what I can accomplish when I work hard for it.

I found this frame at Marshalls for $16! I thought the inspirational sayings went perfect with the marathon theme.

My goal is to some how organize all of my race bibs, medals and other paraphernalia in a neat and creative way. Any ideas?

Just as my morning flew by, so did the rest of my afternoon. I am getting really excited about all of the headway we are making with the Blogging Summit. We are this close to making official announcements with details!!!

I munched on an Apricot Dried Fruit Leather around 4:00.

After running a few errands I was STARVING when I arrived home for dinner. Good thing I had a great meal planned in my head.

I have been envisioning this Eggplant Sandwich for a while and was just able to find an evening to make it today. It was really easy and really yummy!

I simply grilled two slices of Eggplant on the George Forman then topped one slice with Tomato, Raw Goat Milk Cheese, Basil, Mushroom, & Avocado before broiling it until the cheese melted. One the half was done, I topped it with the other half and sprinkled it with some Balsamic Vinegar.

I LOVE this!!! YUM!!!! I think the fresh basil really makes the dish. Each flavor worked perfectly with the other. It tasted fresh, wonderful and reminded me of summer.

With my eggplant creation I steamed some Yuca with a little butter.

Yuca was a great starch component to the meal and a little bit of butter goes a long way with giving the yuca just the right amount of additional flavor it needs.

I was craving some Dark Chocolate for dessert. Good thing too, I really need to start eating up my chocolate stash.

I always forget about how much chocolate builds up in there over time.

I pulled out a Green & Black’s Organic 70% Dark Chocolate Bar.

I ate half and returned the rest to my chocolate stash.

My first load of laundry just dinged, I guess that means its time for another one.

Good night!!

It has been another very busy and productive morning! I am hoping to get as much accomplished as possible before my week off, which makes me work harder and quicker. My bowl of fruit held me over for quite a while this morning. I guess it was all that fiber in bulk. However, around 11:00 more »

My First 5k

June 9, 2009

This morning I awoke and walked the short distance to my apartment gym. The gym is nothing special with outdated equipment and mismatched weights, but it does allow some great cardio alternatives when running is temporarily not an option. I decided to mix it up with 20 minutes of the elliptical, 20 on the stationary more »
