I’m liking what I’m seeing. ๐Ÿ™‚

Much better than…

Much, much better. ๐Ÿ™‚

Those 70 degree temps a going to make my planned 20 mile run on Saturday much more enjoyable.

Oh yeah, have I mentioned I plant to run 20 miles on my vacation? Yep, that’s how I roll! Good thing I have friends who are training and willing to run the majority of those miles with me. Woop woop! ๐Ÿ™‚

To recap, in the past I have completed 16 miles in Chicago, 18 miles in Tallahassee, 11 in San Francisco, and 12 in Miami (all while traveling). I’m telling you I love to run in new cities! It makes the vacation that much more fun!

I wasn’t feeling the afternoon snack I had originally packed this morning, so I dug into my snack drawer for something else.

Hello Clif Bar.

There was only half a bar in the wrapping. Don’t ask me how long it had been there or how I managed to just eat half of a bar at one time.

Still tasted good. ๐Ÿ™‚

My fridge is beginning to get that ‘I’m going out of town for the weekend’ glow about it; meaning it’s pretty bare. Just a few random vegetables and a lot of figs.

Dinner consisted of what ever I could scrounge up.

This included a hummus sandwich with cucumbers, feta, tomato, cucumber, and basil on spelt bread.

(The basil really made this sandwich!)

Steamed broccoli on the side

Some chocolate and figs for dessert.

Don’t ask what I was thinking when I purchased two things of fig the weekend before I was going out of town. I feel like I have figs coming out of my head right now. Good thing I like figs. ๐Ÿ™‚

Now, if only I knew how to make fig jam. Anyone have a recipe out there? ๐Ÿ˜‰

New York City Meet Up!

We have a plan! Looks like it’ll be vegan ice cream on Sunday at 3:00pm. E-mail me at graduatemeghann@gmail.com for details.

Halfway through the hump

September 1, 2010

Does anyone else still giggle when someone refers to Wednesday as โ€˜Hump Dayโ€™? Deep down inside I swear there is a 10 yr old little girl dying to break free. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Other giggle words: Penis Fartlek Uranus Nuts What are some of yours?

Happy September 1st! I guess itโ€™s safe to finally flip my calendar over, right? I call Septemberโ€™s calendar my race inspiration calendar. I have two 20 milers, two 5ks, and one 15k to get me through the month. I believe Iโ€™ll need all the inspiration I can get. ๐Ÿ™‚ This morning I hit the gym more ยป
