Gearing Up

by Meghann on October 26, 2012

Remember this bag because if you bring it home, I promise it won’t last long. 😉


The kettlecorn was part of the Whole Trade gift basket Whole Foods Market sent me a couple of weeks ago and I finally got around to opening it yesterday afternoon. I had a handful “just to taste” and found myself going back for several more handfuls because it was so delicious. Somehow I managed to walk away yesterday(I had a Yelp party to get to!), but there was nothing stopping me today. I finished off the bag this afternoon without a problem. That was some GOOD popcorn.  

Dinner tonight was lighter on the carbs than I would have liked (though I’d like to think I for my carb fill with the obscene amount of popcorn consumed 😉 ).


Derek was in charge of the chicken tenders. He double dipped the tenders in a flour/panko breading, then baked at 375 for 15 minutes.


I took over the veggies with cauliflower I steamed, then lightly mashed with butter, salt, and pepper.


And steamed green beans.


Dessert came from last night’s goodie bag.


Chocolate macadamia nut clusters


I had two.




My gear is all lined up and ready to go!


I used my previous “How to pack for a half ironman” post as a reference and created a checklist separated by sport.


I need to pick up a race belt at the expo, but besides that I think I’m ready to go. We leave for Miami in the morning!

Good Night !

So exciting, good luck! And I know what you mean about that popcorn! We had it last christmas and the only thing that kept me from polishing it off immediately was that my family wanted to eat it too!
