Ate at applebee’s and had some quesadillas, spinach artichoke dip and 3 cheese penne. Then I spent some time in the bathroom when we got back from food poisoning I presume.

Summer Eats


Alright here are some things I want to make/eat over the summer.

– Smoothies and lots of them
– Homemade granola bars for recovery runs (similar to luna bars) I want to find a cheaper alternative.
– Good meals for recovery and pre running (need your suggestions)
– Lots and lots of fruit

This Summer series is really for suggestions from readers! So give me some good recipes for good runner’s meals! 🙂



Sorry my posts haven’t been very detailed. But I promise to take the summer series and go into more detail once I get suggestions and actually have a set plan of action for what the summer will consist of! I’ll share the recipes and ideas from everyone as well!

I’ve just been really busy with school since it’s coming to a close and school comes first! But once school is over and after I do some traveling then I’ll be all yours and running of course!

Yesterday on my formspring I was asked …..

What bands do you listen to?

“Oh man, my music taste is all over the place. For running I listen to upbeat music, usually catchy tunes from the radio so I don’t get bored. Favorite band of all time is Copeland. Love John Mayer too! Mayday Parade, Parachute, Taylor Swift, Jack’s Mannequin, Ghosts & Vodka, Breathe Carolina, Never Shout Never….I could go on and on!”

Stay tuned in the future and I’ll show you my running playlist 🙂


Things that make me happy

– Almost being done with school
– Alex is recovering fast
– Getting my hair cut this weekend
– Possibly working 3 hours on Friday to make a quick $30.


Friday, Saturday and Sunday



My dad went in early to work so I had a brunch.


Doesn’t it look like a face? hah funny.

I took some of his trail mix!


So yummy. Most of the trail mix comes from Whole Foods and some from Costco all mixed together in pure yumminess!



Originally I was supposed to do a 4 mile progressive run. But I had a bad nights sleep and was really sore. Saturday I had a 3 mile planned, so I compromised and did a 3 mile progressive run.

Running outfit:


3 miles in 22:30 @ 7:30 pace

Mileage Time
mile 1 8:04
mile 2 7:30
mile 3 6:56

Then of course ice time!!


Then I headed over to Alex’s house and we went to Maggiano’s Little Italy for dinner and ordered family style.

Spinach Dip
Cheesy Garlic Bread


Chicken Pesto Linguini
Chicken and Truffle Tortellaci

It was very delicious as always!

We then went back to his house and watched Music and Lyrics, which he has never seen!!



Woke up and went to breakfast with Alex, his grandma Henthorn and his brother Zack. We went to Ihop and I ordered the Chocolate Chip Pancakes. Next time I am ordering the kids size because 4 pancakes were wayyyyyy too much!


times 4!!!! Yeah, awful.

Then we went to REI and I picked up my first pair of padded bike shorts!! We also walked around and dreamt of all the wonderful things we would buy if we had the money. Yeah, it was fun!!

Then we went back to my house and hung out with my parents and the furball aka graham our dog.

We had to do a run. I had to do 4 miles easy. So I went without my garmin!! I figured I’d take it real easy if I didn’t know my time or pace. WRONG! I went faster than 35 minutes because it took me a total of 35 minutes and I stopped to tie my shoe twice and had to stop at tons of lights.

It was a sad night because KU lost 🙁
I don’t even want to talk about it.

But dinner was great!! My mom’s Italian Meatloaf, some perogies (pasta stuffed with mashed potatoes), and garlic bread.


It was delicious!!! Then Alex, my parents and I played bowling on the Wii.

Alex left and then my parents and I played some Wii. I love playing games with them. I just loved being home.



Then today I had to head back to cape. BOOO HOOOO!!!

My parents were kind enough to drive me to Alex’s house because I had left my car there and he was going to pick me up at my house in the car but I forgot to give him my keys. DUH! I can be so forgetful.

My dad helped us pack and then Alex and I were off!

Lunch was Jack n the Box. I ordered 2 tacos and a chicken sandwich.

We got back and it was pouring cats and dogs!! More like worms really hahaha.

So I did a dreaded 60 minutes on the treadmill. I was supposed to do 9 miles but there was no way I could go any longer, my legs hurt so bad. So I did 7 miles.

Dinner was olive’s pepperoni pizza fold.


So now you are caught up on the weekend!!
