future marathoner.


Holy crap. I registered for my very first MARATHON today!

This comes after last night’s I’m never going to be ready for the National Half in two months freak out moment.  I had been contemplating this marathon, but I wanted to get through my spring races before registering.  Then, this morning I decided I needed to stop thinking about it and just sign up!  So, that’s what I did.  October 16, 2011, I’ll (hopefully!) be able to call myself a marathoner!


I had a bowl of Kashi Heart to Heart and crumbled in a banana bread muffin.  It was a great combination!  The muffin soaked up some of the almond milk and it was super moist!

And within an hour of getting to work, I had  breakfast number two.  Monday mornings are a most excellent excuse for two breakfasts, especially when someone  brings in cinnamon rolls the size of your face.  That is only a slight exaggeration.  These things were massive!

I resisted the immense temptation to eat an entire roll and cut myself a much more reasonable quarter piece.  Not nearly as exciting, but I didn’t need to have my calories for the day (or a couple days…) downed before 9:30!


I broke out an old, beloved favorite combo for today’s sandwich:  the peanut butter, honey, and apple!  Note to self:  when bringing a container of honey to work, take it out of your lunch bag before it goes in the fridge!  Nothing that a quick spin in the microwave couldn’t solve!

On the side was some hummus and red pepper.  The pepper was slightly past its prime.  I’ve tasted better.  I still ate it.  If you don’t hear from me within the next 24 hours, send an ambulance to make sure I’m not dead from a case of bad red pepper.

This future marathoner must get back to work!  Hope y’all are having a lovely Monday!
