Swim, Work, Eat

by Meghann on May 8, 2010

Oh, what a productive Saturday I’ve had! I’ve been going non-stop since 6:00am and am just now getting a chance to catch my breath at 11:00pm!

After breakfast I met my cousin Candice at Lucky Lake Swim.

After I posted about the swim a couple of weeks ago Candice informed me that she would like to join me on my next swim. Back in the day Candice was a pretty bad-ass swimmer and she has been trying to get back into it.

I was in a bit of a time crunch so I couldn’t do the whole swim by Candice’s side and I unfortunately had to book it out of there before she reached the banks. However, I did see her after the turn around and she was still chugging along. Candice did manage to finish and I’m sad I missed it.

Candice – next time I promise to be by your side as you kick that swim’s butt!

The 1 km swim ended up taking me a little less than 30 minutes. It was really just the right amount of time I needed for a quick change before heading to my next gig all the way in Disney World. 🙂

A few weeks ago I signed on to work a few local expos for SpiBelt.

If you are unfamiliar with SpiBelt – it’s a great pouch to wear when your running. Mine can hold my phone, cameras, keys, and gate card with no problems.

I love my spibelt and am very excited to be working with such a great company!

The expo I worked today was in honor of the Danskin Triathlon at Disney World.

The company had sent me all the materials earlier this week. Basically I had to turn this…

….to this in 30 minutes. 🙂

I had fun interacting with everyone at the race and even managed to sell a few spibelts (go me!). I’ve also concluded I want to participate in the Danskin Triathlon next year… just sayin. 😉

Since I was on my feet all day by myself at the booth, lunch was pretty random and spread out through the day.

I started with a Z-bar

Moved on to my arugula, hummus, goat cheese, tomato, and tomato wrap

I had to book it after the expo to meet my family in Daytona Beach for my sister’s birthday.

I joined the birthday girl in a beer.

I ordered the Salmon and Veggies and politely requested they leave the sauce off.

I stole a couple of my Mom’s coconut shrimp. Coconut shrimp are a big favorite of mine! 🙂

We moved on to Mai Tai for a little more celebrating, but I stuck to water. 🙂

I actually felt pretty bad that I had to come back to the hotel room (did I mention my parents’ sprung for hotel rooms for the night?) while everyone continued to party, but I can barely keep my eyes open!

I need sleep ASAP!

Good night!!

girl I’ve been wondering where to meet some man meat (sorry that sounds so crude; I’ve been looking for new male acquaintances) and I can tell that lucky lake swim would’ve been an opportunity

I need to get myself one of those spi-belts! I have a pouch thingy now but it always bounces around when I run/walk. I love the cute pink plaid one you are wearing too!
