Wait, It’s Not January?!

I got back from spending time with Whit yesterday only to find out that it had SNOWED Saturday night!  REALLY?!  It’s almost July Mother Nature…if anything, just don’t make it cold this weekend because I don’t run well in cold, especially if I have to run 26.  Yep, MARATHON IN SIX DAYS!!!


Anyhow…I had a simple breakfast of those strawberries and blackberries with a banana and honey o’s with USVAB for breakfast as I sprinted out the door.  Luckily no one on the road since it’s a holiday!  Yes, this girl works on the holiday…I’m a biologist, I don’t get holidays!

Off to the field with the other work horses…or mustangs!

It was some intense birding this morning and man, I need to brush up on my calls! I was getting so overwhelmed but finally pulled it off!  I stopped for maybe 5 seconds to shove my easy lunch into my belly: tortilla and pb with an organic peach and some organic cherries.

Seriously, I can’t believe this. It’s like, 90 in some areas of the east coast and I my town maybe hit 72 or 73 today.  Where is my heat that I love?!

I got home and drowned myself in bird identification and a piece of Banana Walnut Chocolate Chip Bread.  Was great motivation to pay attention to the bird calls…and keep my fingers off my brand new phone.

I took a short nap because I was feeling run down (so much rushing around this weekend it had me beat! Thank goodness birding is relaxing…sometimes) then headed out for a short and easy run of 3.8 miles with some abs afterwards.  Then I was ready for dinner!

I have a ton of summer squash and potatoes from my organic produce box so what better than make them the base of dinner, right? Roasted those babies up in Italian seasoning, sided with hummus and ketchup and bam! Simple and easy dinner!

Now I’m munching on some more cherries and handfuls of air popped popcorn from TJ’s before an early night and early morning tomorrow!

    I wish I had some 70 degree weather! We had highs above 90 today, and it was way too much heat way too fast :(

    I'm sure it'll heat up in time for your marathon!

    Ahh so soon!! Everyone on the east coast is complaining about the heat, but I have to say I kind of love it. Sending some your way :)

    I remember the week before my marathon i was STARVING even though I wasn't exercising. Such a strange feeling, but so worth it for the final result.

    DON'T do anything differentl now – jsut listen to your body, eat and drink lots, and enjoy the rest!

    I'm kinda wishing we had some of that cooler weather out where I live. I spent my day outside today in a sleeveless top, sweating. And getting an odd farmers tan ;). I hope it warms up in time for your marathon though!!
