    Congratulations on finishing the marathon! What an amazing accomplishment! πŸ™‚ I hope to do that someday! Personally, I love Panera. It’s fast food, but there are a lot of healthy options!

    Either way I bet a massage felt heavenly. And I know I could use some tips on accessorizing. That’s my big downfall with fashion. I seriously own NO fun jewelry.

    Looks like the perfect relaxing day! I’m always recruiting friends to help me shop. Sometimes it’s totally necessary.

    I could not agree more!

    I wish someone would come help me with clothes shopping, I’m hopeless at matching things and at present, I appear to have an entirely black wardrobe! Must.get.more.colour!
    Congrats again on the marathon!

    Am I understanding correctly? You poured the raw egg dip over your finished French toast? =/

      haha nope! I cooked up the remaining egg and added that to the french toast.

    Oil also works to take off fake tattoos (I think baby oil is the best for it, but any should do)! LOVED reading all your race recaps, and got a little misty seeing your splits and knowing that you and Kelly finished together! I was thinking of all of you as I did my long run in Madison, WI (2.75 hours from Chicago) and hoping it was somehow cooler there for you! Congratulations on an incredible race and amazing experience!!! You are a ROCKSTAR!!!!!!

      BABY OIL! That’s what I meant Meghann, not RUBBING ALCOHOL! Sorry πŸ™ I hope you didn’t try it!!!!

    so fun! I have no fashion sense whatsoever. I have big hips/butt and a small waist and am tall so everything is short on me. “regular” clothes just don’t fit!! looks like you found some cute stuff.

    Congrats again on your epic marathon finish! You must have had such a high today, knowing that you and Kelly were able to finish hand in hand and in a decent time despite the heat!

    All your meals today look delicious! I’m drooling just looking at the pictures πŸ™‚

    Not sure if you’re a tattoo person or not, but getting a real tattoo to commemorate the CM experience would be cool!

    You’re so lucky! I wish I was living in Orlando so J could help me shop too! I’m so clueless when it comes to accessorize… And I HATE shopping alone! I last 15 minutes in the store and then I go back home, without buying anything. Well, I guess it’s better for my wallet.

    And you’re right, bread is definitely the best part of the meal. No competition…

    I Love J’s website. Thanks for posting about shopping with her…I was curious about her new offer!

    Also, I LOVE panera (being an STL girl where the chain started). Interesting to see how the ingredients change down south. Up here the Orchard salad has chicken, pears, pecans, and dried cranberries. And an amazing cherry balsamic dressing that is probably laden with HFCS like the rest of theirs πŸ™

    I definitely strained a muscle trying to scrub off a calf tat after a running relay last summer. Way to make the most of marathon recovery/rewards for a race well run!

    Weren’t you starving after your marathon or does it take an extra day for the raging appetite to kick in? I feel like I eat more than your day’s eats after a regular workout! Is that typical?
