I iced the crap of it and took two days of rest and (*knock on wood*) it’s good as new! Pre-run eats: Slow cooker steel cut oats with a scoop of peanut butter, two […]

    marathon

    Good morning! Happy Monday! My training for the Boston Marathon officially starts today! Woohoo! I am pumped. Last Friday, we (the Stonyfield mom bloggers) received our 16-week training plan for the Boston Marathon from Megan, our running coach.

    We did it!!! Mal and I both tackled 20 miles this morning! Boo-YAH! At 6:30 this morning, I ate my usual pre-run breakfast. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Then, Mal and I drove to South Boston to meet our team. We didn’t want to be late for our 20-miler, so we gave ourselves […]
