Hi, friends! Just popping in to share my eats from today. We had a really fun Marathon Monday! Iced coffee with sweetened condensed milk – sort of like Vietnamese cold brew Eggs with Breakfast Potatoes and the last bit of the ketchup from the bottle – don’t you hate that when it splatters all over the place?!  CrossFit workout – I beat my old “Nancy” time by nearly a minute and added 30 pounds to the Overhead…

Good morning and happy Marathon Monday to you! Today is my favorite day of the entire year. I absolutely love Marathon Monday (aka Patriot’s Day aka the day that the Boston Marathon is run) because it (typically) symbolizes the start of Spring with the nicer weather and people engaging in many more outdoor activities. It’s like everyone comes out of hibernation after the long winter. And, of course, the energy around the marathon is contagious. I loved Marathon Monday…

Good morning, friends! I’m still on a high from Monday’s marathon! It was such an amazing experience. The whole day. Seriously, I had the best time ever. Ok, ready for a recap? Let’s start at the beginning! I woke up, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, at 3:10 AM on Monday morning. I was too excited to sleep! I tossed and turned for about an hour and then finally decided to get out of bed. I laid out all…

Today is the day. Marathon Monday is here!!! By the time you read this post, I will be on my way to Hopkinton to run 26.2 miles. This day is a long time coming, and I can’t be more excited to finally run the Boston Marathon. It is the race I’ve always wanted to run. A lot of time, effort, and miles have gone into this one day, and I am beyond thrilled to participate…

If you’re a long-time reader of CNC, you know my favorite day of the year is Marathon Monday, the day the Boston Marathon is run. I love it even more than Christmas, Thanksgiving, and my birthday. I’m pretty much obsessed with it, which I explain here and here. To psych us up for the greatest day of the year, I’ve decided to profile runners again on CNC like I did in 2010. (Thanks for the…

If you didn’t know already, TODAY is my absolute favorite day of the year. It’s Marathon Monday here in Boston and everything about today is just awesome! So, why is Marathon Monday so great? Here’s the explanation that I gave last year: Marathon Monday, as it is affectionately called in Boston, is my favorite day of the year. I absolutely love it! Personally, I think Boston is an unfriendly and cranky city from November –…

Somehow it’s almost 6 o’clock, and I haven’t blogged once today. Sorry, guys! 😳 The day has totally gotten away from me– but, it’s not without good reason. Basically, I’ve been on my way out the door all day long. Snack My morning started with an early Body Pump class at the gym. On my way out the door, I snacked on a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on whole wheat bread. When I returned home…
