Low Battery

by Meghann on April 18, 2009

I was very sad when I got this screen as I turned my Garmin on before my thirteen mile run this morning.


Low Battery? Noooooo!!!

So for the first time since December I completed a run without my Garmin. I have to admit for the first mile or so I kept checking my wrist hoping to know my time and pace, but eventually I just got into the groove and went with the flow.

Luckily I had a running partner with me who kept a great pace so I never felt like I was going to fast or too slow. Thank god I found my running partner! The thirteen miles went great but only lord knows what time I finished them in or what my pace was for the run. 🙂

At the beginning of practice I presented with a lovely award.


I am the first person in my Team in Training group to succeed my goal and I guess that makes me Fund Raising Champion. 🙂 I owe it all to you guys!

Before my run I fueled up with a Multi-Grain eggo slathered with Naturally Nutty Vaniilla Almond Butter, Strawberry Slices and a sprinkle of Chocolate is For Lovers Granola on top.


During the run I had 2 Margarita Shot Blox at the half way point.

My TnT Coaches and Mentors were very sweet and had plenty of goodies for us at the end. I dodged the wonderful homemade treats because I knew I had good food waiting at home, but I did snag a Green Popsicle for the 20 minute drive home.


During my run I kept thinking of the Easter Scone I had been saving in my freezer for when I finished today. I discovered thinking about the future food I am going to consume really pushes me the last couple of miles.


My easter scone ended up being Raspberry, yum! It was a well deserved treat and totally worth running those 13 miles for.


For a little protein I had 1/2 cup of Egg White Fluff.


THen for something sweet Strawberries, Blackberries & Pineapple with a dollop of Vanilla Chobani on top!


It was a wonderful complete breakfast that I hope will keep me fueled for my very active day.

Derek and I are heading out to take advantage of our new annual passes and are exploring Universal and Islands of Adventure. Don’t wait up!
