    Hey girl! Nice job on the long run!!!!!! Glad you found your way out of the scary situation- feeling lost always makes me totally nervous (especially when I’m on foot and not in a car). Love toasty sammies. Sorry you have to separate from Derek but I’m more than sure that little girl of yours will be SO excited to see ya!

    How did your legs do with the long car ride after your long run? I feel like mine would have gone crazy (well, as much as legs can go crazy…:-P)!

    Great food reward for a great run! I ran in the rain last week it’s an interesting experience. There is nothing more scary then being in an unfamiliar place alone running. Good for you for keeping going and keeping a phone on you. I always run with one just in case.

    Have fun with the warm welcome Maddie will give you when you get home!

    Running in new areas can certainly be a challenge – glad to hear that it worked out though. Oooooh and that sandwich looks amazing! 🙂

    Ha ha, I love how different you girlies look. College pictures are great, aren’t they?
    Glad you survived the run, it definitely is scary to run in a sort of familiar, but still unfamiliar place. Good for you!

    Awesome long run – congrats! The post-run food looks delicious. I can’t wait to read your review of the protein bar – I’m trying to find one that works for me. Usually I just go with peanut butter toast and a banana.

    Happy running!

    I hate the rain, so way to get out there! Seriously, sometimes I think I’m going to melt, haha.

    Love the before and after shots. The “after” reflects much better fashion choices, definitely!

    Honestly, I’m a little scared to run outside, especially since I moved and now live in a little town with lots of forest and dark creepy corners. Main streets are the way to go. Unfortunately, I don’t have too many of those around here 🙁

    I was in Boise this past week, and ran on their greenbelt in the early morning dark. I debated the wisdom of my decision to run in the dark by myself in a strange place, but thankfully nothing happened to me, except having frost on my clothes when I got back! Running in strange places can be really scary, even if there’s no real danger!

    Sounds like you had a fun weekend in Tallahassee. I did an internship in central Florida back in college, so the names of those town take me back, oh, about 10 years!

    You should’ve called while you were in Gainesville! Would’ve been perfect since I couldn’t see you when I was in Orlando on Friday.

    Great job on your run, despite getting a bit lost. Not fun at all! Oh how I miss McAlisters! They have the best tea!

    Have a great Monday!

    You are definitely an inspiration of working out and eating right! I loved the flashback picture. What inspires you to stay fit?

    Meghann- HEy miss beautiful runner!!!!
    So I had a 20 miler yesterday in the RAIN, I did not like it at all, by the end my hands were freezing. I am glad I did it though because you never know what the weather will be like for the marathon day!!! Oh and by the way, do you like cinnamon? If so ask for some in your pancakes its AMAZING!!! oh mccalisters I like there chocolate chip cookies, and there honey mustard I get it on the side of my turkey sandwich and dip it, another AMAZING thing. To be honest I prefer Jasons deli over mccalisters purely for the yogurt and AMAZING salad bar.

    WOW- what a difference 4 years makes! I love college pictures… your friend looks so different that I wouldn’t have recognized her if you hadn’t told us that it was her!

    Your lunch-time sandwich looks so delicious! Congrats on finishing the 16-miler in the rain, not an easy task. I ran 10 miles in the pouring rain last weekend and looked like a drowned dog when I finished 🙂

    16 miles- I am SO impressed! I just ran my first half marathon today and can’t imagine having to run much farther than that! I watched those that ran the full 26.2 as they ran across the finish and they looked like they were in such pain! One day I hope to be able to do it. You are an inspiration for sure- keep it up!

    I’m terrible, I never want to touch rain during a workout – I’m terrified of slipping.

    Most days I don’t miss Tallahassee – I left there two years ago now – but once in a while it comes to mind, like its hills. I always had good workouts there.
