Marathon Week

by Meghann on April 30, 2012


The countdown is ON! T-minus 6 days until it’s marathon time!


(p.s. How cute is the “Finish Swine”?! Can’t wait to cross it!)

We’re not leaving for Cincinnati until Friday morning, but the anticipation is already building. Eeekkkk…. so exciting! This is the time where the training is all behind us and we can focus on other details – like what to wear, where to eat, what to see and do, etc. – you know, the fun stuff. ;)

Fun news! I was selected as a member of the Flying Pig Social Media Team (see my blurb on applying for the team here)! This means that I’ll have some fun-behind-the-scenes access during the race – like the possibility of interviewing FPM officials and champions, as well as media credentials for the expo, finish line, etc. – and I’ll be tweeting live through the weekend on all things #FlyingPig, so be sure to follow me at @mealsandmiles for the latest updates. I think this is a really fun program that Flying PIg is putting out there and I can’t wait to be a part of it!   

Live tracking is also now available, so if you’re impatient (like I am!) for race results, be sure to sign up here to track me live on race day. (full name: Meghann Anderson) No pressure. Really.

I’m a little behind on the Tone It Up Bikini Series Challenge, which means I somehow managed to put off Thursday’s workout until today. No worries. I set out for the HIIT IT: Size Shrinker workout, thinking I could just do the 90 second intervals around the block with Maddie.

Lesson learned: Maddie and intervals do not mix. She seems to only have one speed and when she’s not running, all she wants to do is sniff out the neighborhood. Instead of walking during the slower intervals, I tried to keep it to an easy jog to prevent Maddie from stopping to “smell the roses” but she didn’t quite understand what a jogging pace is (full speed. all the way). I pretty much gave up on the intervals half way through and just finished the 3 mile run with Maddie at her pace. She’s the boss.

We returned home and Maddie proceeded to destroy one of her toys (RIP Pink Llama), while I did the Self 8 Toning Moves.

Breakfast this morning was a simple bowl of cereal.


In the bowl:

  • 1/2 cup Wheat Chex
  • 1/2 cup Multi-grain Peanut Butter Cheerios
  • Vanilla Chobani
  • Strawberries
  • Walnuts


The walnut addiction is back in full force. ;)

Have a great Monday everyone!
