    I actually like stupid comedies but you’re right, kick ass was just…ew. Not a fan :/ Your smoothie looks incredible though, and I love your bowl!

    Meghann, you never cease to amaze me with your ability to conquer any run! I was wondering, does Derek choose to run because of being influenced in a way by you or does he enjoy running as well?

    Glad you had a great run! I had a 12 miler this morning, and you’re right, I knew from the moment I stepped out the door that it wasn’t going to be a great run. Ugh. One foot in front of the other though. 🙂

    Smoothie bowls are the best! I need to try this Vega mix…

    Well done on the run! I so admire your dedication to it 🙂 I’ve got a 13 tomorrow, and an 18in a few weeks…I’m so scared! Any tips to beat the boredom!? The farthest I’ve evr gone is 16..:s

    I’ve been drinking up that Vega (with fruit/veg additions) too and I’m loving it! Love the snowflake/winter bowl!! Seems like a million years away but it’s going to be the holidays again soon enough.

    Great job on the run, Meghann!

    Great job on the run! Post run smoothie in a bowl looked delish.
    Hubby is also doing Chicago so I will give you a shout out cheer if I see you:)
    LOVE your blog!!!! You have a new fan in Louisville, KY

    I’m loving the Vega from HLS, I put blueberries and bananas in mine with almond milk or soy. Congrats on the mileage too!

    I love that Shake/Smoothie mix. I’m not a huge smoothie person, but I have found through random experimenting that throwing it into my hot oatmeal makes for a nice chocolate-y breakfast when I’ve got a serious sweet craving… Just a thought. 🙂

    And I saw Kick-Ass in the theater unfortunately. I thought it’d be more stupid funny, not a graphic anime kind of thing… I was disappointed. And kind of grossed out. And sad to see all the 10-year-old kids in the theater…

    Meghann! Great job on the run! 18 miles…holy cow! When we get home from vacation we’re upping our mileage to 9 (doing a half-marathon), and that seems like a lot to me!!! : D We always end up running at night, because southern summers are horrible! While on vacation, we started running in the mornings and I think I like that better. If only I was a morning person…

    Your breakfast looks really delicious- especially the toppings!! I’ve never heard of dark chocolate edamame before – where in the world do you find that?!

    Aww I feel Derek’s pain! Getting your mileage and endurance back up is no fun!

    Hi Meghann! Congrats on the run! I am new to marathon training (did 18 mi this morning too!) but wanted to ask you about pacing. I don’t have a set “goal” time for my first marathon, but I have been paying attention to my garmins. When you run, if you stop (bathroom, water, pick up another person), do you stop your watch or include it in the time? I never stop for walking breaks but have stopped for the bathroom/water (usually 2-3 times maybe over the course of a run like this). I just want to know the best way to gauge my “pace”?

    Again, congrats and hope you rest up and eat up now!

    I’m always in awe when you do your long runs. Especially since you aleways seem so upbeat after! Hopefully one day I will get there…
    Your smoothie bowl looks yum! I bookmarked one of your recipes awhile back, I’m going to have to try it soon.

    I think I will use the Vega for smoothies as well- I am not food adventurous- what an awesome run! Derek will get back into it ASAP!

    Good work on completing that long run! I always love that part of training where you look back and realize that something that seemed SO hard just a few weeks ago is a breeze now.

    Tell Derek not to get discouraged; his endurance and speed will come back sooner than he thinks! I’ve had to take weeks of for injuries before, so I feel his pain.

    I agree on Kick-Ass though. It was a little weird. My boyfriend loved it though. Go see Scott Pilgrim vs. the World when you have a chance–its a quirky movie that is truly KICK-ASS!

    This is too funny — I also did 18 this morning, a PDR for me. Go me! It started pouring on me about mile 13 but I was doing and out and back so I soldiered on. (Actually, it made it a lot cooler, so I didn’t mind at that point!) Then I came home and officially registered for the Detroit Marathon, a week after Chicago. It’s my first, and today was the first long run day that I felt like, yes, I can really do this. Thanks for sharing your training with us!

    Your plates always make me smile. I especially love the star plate you have and found one sort of like it at Target, but resisted buying any because it was plastic. I kind of have a bad addiction to the colorful plastic-ware that comes out for each season and sore off buying anything new for my New Year’s resolution (dead serious).

    I realized the other day that I had grabbed a pair of snowflake undies on a day when the heat index reached 110 and I couldn’t stop giggling when I thought about then. Dumb, but it’s the little things!
