The Farthest I Have Ever Run

Today was the first day I have run since Tuesday. I took off the past few days to get better, since I have been sick. Today, according to the training plan I have been doing, I was supposed to run for 2 hours today. I figured I would just do what I could do, and take it easy. I ran at the gym on the treadmill today because it was threatening rain, and it was also easier on my shins.

I watched Mission Impossible in the Cardio Cinema at the gym and I ran the whole 2 hours. It was awesome! I felt real good and the time was just flying by watching the movie. I did 12 miles, and now I feel totally ready for the Zooma Half Marathon in 2 weeks. I was going a pretty ‘slow’ pace the whole time so I was pretty proud of how far I went. Yay! I was happy that my few days off didn’t affect my training schedule.

When I came home I was dying of hunger. Naturally More sent me a tub of peanut butter, and I was ready to rip into it post today’s run.     mas pics 596 mas pics 597 Naturally More peanut butter has:

  • 50% more fiber
  • 25% more protein
  • 20% fewer carbs
  • NO Trans Fat

“ The most innovative benefit of Naturally More™ Peanut Butter is the high level of Omega-3 essential fatty acids, which have been linked to reducing the risk of coronary heart disease, stroke, cancer and lowering blood pressure. In addition, Omega-3 essential fatty acids are linked to physical benefits such as improved hair texture and a more radiant complexion, providing whole body benefits from the inside, out.”

I put the Peanut Butter on Honey Wheat Bread con bananas! It was delish. The peanut butter is a great combination of creamy with a little bit of the chunkiness I love so very much. It tasted so fresh and raw. It was VERY GOOD. I had to give it a little stir, as the tub suggests, but it was very delightful.The perfect post run snack!

Pre- Race Day Eats

I was very conscious of my eats this Saturday before the big Broad Street 10-Miler. I was nervous and anxious and excited all day. Pretty much I was just ready to get out there and RUN! Scott @ Solixir was nice enough to send me some samples to test out. Solixir is an all natural sparkling botanical beverage that comes in 3 flavors – Awaken, Restore & Relax. I tested out the Relax on Saturday and it was just lovely. A very subtle taste of blackberry and chamomile. All the Solixir drinks are all natural with no sugar added.  I really enjoyed it!

On the way to the Phillies game I had my first ZBar! I had blueberry and it was really good. I have been reading such wonderful things about the ZBars on blogs, people just love them! Now I see why!


I snuck in some Emily’s Desserts into the ballpark today. I like to have a treat or two in my purse at all times. The Coconut Cranberry cookies were divine. I really just can’t get over how fresh the cookies and donuts from Emily’s were. When did I get those? Early last week? Each bite tasted like it just came out of the oven and finished cooling. It was that fresh!

Boyf and I also split some peanuts. I feel like munching on peanuts is a staple snack at a ballpark. I love just snacking on food while I sit there and watch the game. Since I wasn’t able to partake in any of the alcohol fun (due to the early morning race on Sunday) I very much enjoyed my overpriced ballpark peanuts!

For dinner, boyf and I made Whole Wheat and Honey Pizza. I had made this before early in April, and its just SUCH a good meal. Bobbi from N Her Shoes suggested this meal for my pre race dinner eats. Such a good call! I got my good carbs and some veggies in the mix and I loooove this pizza. So good. I had lots of feta, onioins, green peppers, tomato sauce and some pepperioni! A winning combination and perfect fuel for my race tomorrow
