    “The Official Chicago Marathon Photos went up last night and, as per usual, I do not have a good one in the bunch. Bummer.”

    Maybe we are looking at different pictures but I think you have a lot of good ones in the bunch!

    Those are flattering photos! When I played basketball in college I swear there wasn’t one good picture of me taken in 4 years πŸ™

    I’m so jealous you ran along a beach today! And I change my mind all the time about what foods I do and don’t like. I like it when I realize I like something…gives me more options and opens me up to a whole new world of food!

      I clicked on like I was going to buy it to make it bigger then did a print screen shot and cut the photo out. πŸ™‚

    I think if you have pretty race pics you aren’t running hard enough πŸ˜‰ haha. They’re not terrible though!

      Haha, great point! My pictures always come out gross and sweaty. Guess that means I’m pushing hard enough!

    I was so bummed with my race pics. The sun must have been in my eyes the whole time because I eyes are pretty much closed in every pic or I look like I am in severe pain…..not cute. Oh well, another reason for the next marathon!

    I think you have lots of options to chose from if you wanted to buy one — they’re great Meghann! Once again, congrats!

    Congrats, again!! You all are so amazing – what a fantastic accomplishment. Running a marathon is DEFINITELY on my “must do” list.

    ps – THANK YOU for bidding on my cupcakes! I shipped them out to you this morning. I had to make them a little less-fancy for transport, but hopefully they make it in once piece and taste fabulous!

    Thanks for being such a great inspiration <3

    It’s hard to justify spending the $$ when I think your personal pics were better!

    Glad you got a run in – and for the record, a 10 minute mile is sprinting to me πŸ˜€

    Your run along the beach sounds so nice. I won’t get to Florida until March and can’t wait to do the same.

    I got super lucky during my first marathon and had some decent photos. I didn’t have anyone on the sidelines to take pictures of me, so I’m really glad in retrospect! That is one day I hope to never forget. My parents ordered a 3-pic collage + finishining time poster as a gift and I just LOVE it!

    I love oatmeal! Though mostly in the fall to late winter time frame. I make it at home a lot, and add lots of delicious things like nut butters or flax seed or dried cranberries. Since I make it at home, I don’t usually order it while I’m out. I know it’s different for you since you’re traveling right now – but if I’m at a restaurant for breakfast it’s usually a rare occurence and a treat and I’ll get some kind of fancy omelet or something awful for me I’d never make at home like eggs benedict.

    Aw, I think your race photos are really cute! I love the way you wore your hair. Very adorable.

    When you run on the beach, do you run barefoot or with sneakers? I’m always tempted to try it when I travel, but I’m not really sure what the best way to go about doing so is. Would love some tips!

    A morning run by the water sounds wonderful. Also sounding wonderful, being able to run so quickly that a 10 minute mile is slow. Ha ha, another comment above mentioned it — but I STRIVE for a 10 minute mile. I suppose practice makes perfect (or better)…

    Your race pics look awesome!! I only have two from my half-marathon and in both of them, I look either really pissed or annoyed. Here’s hoping I get some better ones in my next race!

    I think those pictures are all pretty great! My race photos always look like I’m going to die or something. I have not yet mastered the looking-good-while-running thing like you girls have.

    Keep checking back throughout the week to see if they add any new finish line photos. There are NONE of me crossing the finish line up yet and when I emailed MarathonFoto they said they were still identifying and uploading photos. So, fingers crossed they find a better one of you guys at the finish.

    Love seeing the photos. And running on the beach sounds like such a peaceful day. I can’t believe the cost of oatmeal and fruit alone. Why would anyone not get the buffet?
