Collecting My Race Swag

by Meghann on February 26, 2010

Check it – Michelob Challenge Baby!!! Woop Woop!


Whose pumped?!?! I’m pumped!!!!

I was counting down the minutes this afternoon until I was free for the weekend. I knew I had a long drive ahead of me and the sooner I got on the road the better.

I had to race home to grab Maddie and quickly ate a blueberry oikos with some fiber one.


The drive was as predicted – long and slow. At least I had Maddie to keep me company. πŸ˜‰ She had a ball jumping from one seat to the next in the traverse.

Once in Tampa my first mission was to pick up my race packet and swag for the weekend.


Because really running a cool race is always about the cool swag, right?


3 races = 4 shirts + 1 hat


The 5k & 15k shirt (x2)


The full marathon shirt


This one was my favorite


And the ultra-exclusive Michelob Challenge sweatshirt


Notice how it is already covered in dog hair.


I shall wear this one with pride. πŸ™‚

Derek and I were starved after sorting through our swag and were more than ready to begin carb loading for our races tomorrow morning. (Derek is running the 15k πŸ™‚ ) We headed to Bungalow – a new restaurant in South Tampa – for some good eats.




We started with the Yucca Fries. Derek knows how much I love my yucca fries. πŸ˜‰



For my main course I had the Maui Maui Tacos.


I ate two and Derek ate the third.


They were very spicy and very tasty. πŸ™‚

A pre-race meal would not be complete with out frozen yogurt.



I ordered a small tart yogurt with kiwi, graham cracker, and chocolate chips.


The best bites had chocolate chips. πŸ˜‰

Ready or not tomorrow is the big day!!!

WIsh me luck as I tackle both the 15k and the 5k in the am. Also wish Derek luck as he runs 9.3 miles for the first time ever!!!

Good Night!

Another Packed Lunch

February 26, 2010

This is the third day this week I’ve had to eat my lunch at my desk. I think that’s a record for me. I’m trying to get out of town early to avoid some the lovely Orlando/Tampa traffic, so working through lunch was my best option. πŸ™‚ I had quite a few veggies that were more Β»

Morning Toast

February 26, 2010

Good Morning! Its another cold one here, but at least the skies are blue and the sun is shining brightly! I took it easy this  morning with a simple 20 minute session of Yoga for Runners on just to loosen my legs up a bit. This time tomorrow I will be in the middle more Β»
