Run: I started the day with a less than qualifying for Boston paced run icon smile Marathon Monday!!! 6 miles in approx 56 minutes. Um, I better speed it up if I want to get to Boston!!!

Eat: This morning I made an easy breakfast of Ezekiel muffin with almond butter and butta with stevia and cinnamon. I put too much cinnamon though and added some jelly to take the edge off.IMG 7174 thumb Marathon Monday!!!

Plus watermelon for the fruit factor.IMG 7177 thumb Marathon Monday!!! and coffee for warmth. It’s cold today!IMG 7175 thumb Marathon Monday!!!

Fail: Last night I realized that I made a mistake in scheduling my flights to Orlando this week icon sad Marathon Monday!!! I somehow managed to book Orlando to Baltimore instead of vice versa?!?!

I fixed the mistake, but it cost me an extra $115. Boo.

I have a very long To Do list since I am leaving tomorrow at 3pm!!!  I will be in Orlando only two days and should be home by late Thursday night. I will be blogging from Florida too of course.

Stay tuned for good eats from my travels to Disney World!

See you later icon smile Marathon Monday!!!

    I’m watching the marathon on TV right now :) I love it. I also love when runners get proposed to at the finish line, it’s happened a few times and the cameras have been there to capture it :) adorbs.
    I think you should totally run with a charity if you want to run the race. You won’t have to kill yourself to make a qualifying time and you get to have fun fundraisers to raise money for your charity! Do it up and you can run next year!

    Hi there! I have never commented before but I have now come out of the “lurking closet” to make you fel better about your flight booking issue…..I live in Sydney, Australia and last October I visited the US for the first time (PS: The States are so awesome and I am so jealous of all of you that can live there!!!). Anyway….I am usually the most organised person with EXTREME attention to detail. I turned up 24 hours late for my flight….I thought I was leaving Australia on Monday night but it was actually SUNDAY!!!! I had a non adjustable ticket so this cost me an extra $1500 Australian (about $1300 USD at the time). I was so devastated and that was all I could think about for the first few days of my trip. Needless to say I had the BEST HOLIDAY of my life and I am heading back in 7 weeks time. I have checked my itinerary about 50 times already to make sure I turn up on the right day this time! So don’t feel bad about your mistake at all. I love your blog and I especially love how positive you are….this is what I love the most about people in America!

    One thing I really like about blog posts is that often they spark an idea in my brain. Once that happens, I feel as I must write a comment hoping it may be valuable to some people.
