Things I’m Loving This Morning

by Meghann on January 5, 2011

# 1 : The new curling iron my little brother gave me for Christmas.


(Hot Tools 1.5 in

Mine broke a couple of months back and I’ve missed having bouncy, flowing curls ever since. Took the new barrel for a test run this morning and couldn’t be happier.

Thanks Ben!

#2: This weather

It’s amazing out there right now. I ran 6 miles and wasn’t cold or hot – it was perfect!

#3: Supporting Family

I registered to run the Miami Half Marathon at the end of this month!

My little brother is such an enabler, but I love him anyways. 🙂

I’m taking a mini break from speed training (that sub-4:00 marathon was tough!), so the plan is to run the race with my little brother and push him to a sub-2:00 hr goal. He’s more than got it in him, he just needs someone there showing him the way. 😉

(p.s. DO NOT follow the Miami Marathon on twitter. Unless you’re looking for an example of how NOT to do social media, then – by all means – please check them out. They annoy me to no end with their constant contact auto-tweets. grrrr)

#4: Carrot Cake Waffle.


Specifically left over Carrot Cake Waffles that you throw in a toaster and top with hot cinnamon apples.


It’s like dessert for breakfast. Love!

#5: Maddie


What’s not to love? 😉

What are you loving?

I’m loving my Green Monster that I’m drinking right now, the fact that it’s a short week for me because I had Monday off, and my spin class participants that put me in an awesome mood this morning. Have a great day Meghann! 🙂

Ummmm… well I’m trying hard to find something to love this morning…. the weather is AWFUL here in Jacksonville (overcast and cold), I start my classes for the semester in (10!) minutes, and I’m having a bad hair day…. hmmm
Oh, I know something that I am loving…. Disney Half- Marathon on Saturday! 😀
Guess the other stuff isn’t so bad!
Have a great day!!!!

I’m doing the Miami Marathon, too, and yea, their social media/marketing/PR really sucks. I think I’ve received like 2 emails total, and I’m not even wasting my time following them on Twitter. Kind of a bummer, that race has a lot of potential!

37 Jess (Daly Authenticity) January 5, 2011 at 11:53 am

To be honest, I am really loving the fact that I can work out again, after being on crutches for almost 5 weeks due to a torn hip muscle. There is nothing like getting a good sweat session in, I know you can agree Meghann!

38 Michelle January 5, 2011 at 12:11 pm

I’m loving the banana/chocolate chip pancakes my husband made for me after my 4-mile run. And I’m loving that my hubs has a job interview today in his DREAM industry! Think good thoughts!!!

I stumbled into your blog when I was checking your tips for the Disney marathon.

Realized a couple of coincidences: My debut in marathons was planned for the Palm Beaches Marathon (your sub-4h one) but I thought I was not ready so I postponed it to the Miami Marathon (which you will be running too – the half I know).

So maybe I will see you there.

Good luck with your new endeavors. Lots of changes in 2011, huh!

50 BroccoliHut January 5, 2011 at 8:20 pm

I am loving hot baths after long runs and any song by Ke$ha. I’m just being honest:)
