I accomplished all of 4 things yesterday: I slept, snuggled Marfa, texted Casey about her drunken LA adventures, and tried on my new running shorts. I slept for about 18 hours of the day and dare I say it… blew … Continue reading

One of the best parts of marathon training is how crazy my appetite gets (good because of all the yummy foods I cook and snacks to pack, slightly bad on my wallet ha-ha). I love my Saturday post-run burgers, one … Continue reading

I do when it’s cauliflower crusted pizza! And guess what, you really can if you want, guilt and wheat belly free! Do you guys remember my first post about this recipe back when I launched Pace of Mind? Well, it’s … Continue reading

my best friend is faster than yours

Sunday was exactly what I was hoping for- I woke up before sunrise and took the dog for a nice long walk before the rain hit. I got my Dunkin and settled back into bed with her by my side to track Meghan’s run at MCM. I was holding my breath because of hurricane Sandy, knowing that Meg was totally capable of PRing with a time sub 3:25, but with the conditions not looking great, I was afraid she’d have to scale it back a bit and go for the PR in Philly.

Laura and I anxiously texted through the entire race, checking every split and commenting on how consistant (and fast) Meghan was running. We knew she could do it… and she did. Meg shattered her PR/goal time and finished with a chip time of 03:21:10. What a day, what an accomplishment! I couldn’t be more proud of her and in complete awe of her! 7:40 pace consistently for the entire race. Strong and steady all the way through. I can’t wait to have her next to me in Philly and I hope her marathon running mojo rubs off on me 🙂

In her honor, after logging the last 3 miles of the week, I made the Pumpkin Energy Bites she blogged about last week. They are super yummy and the perfect snack to pack for this week at work. It was a quick and easy recipe for a Sunday evening and I stored them in the fridge over night so they will be ready for me to pack with Monday’s lunch. It’s a simple no-bake recipe and one that will definelty be on my menu regularly!
