BK and a Big Announcement

in All Posts

Ugh I TOTALLY didn’t feel like cooking oatmeal this morning.  The Husband didn’t want to make breakfast either, so we drove to Burger King for some breakfast.

I got an orange juice, a coffee, a yummy ham and cheese buttered sammie, a large order of hash browns, and some eggs.  It was DELISH — but I couldn’t finish the hash browns.


And GUESS WHAT?  On our way home from BK, we were listening to the radio and heard there’s a marathon this weekend at a nearby town.  They are still accepting entries so I’M TOTALLY GOING TO DO IT!  I mean, I know I haven’t been training or anything, but I figure I can run 13 miles, so I could definitely do 26.2… right?


I’m so excited, I just sent in my entry fee!  I think I can convince Meghann to do it, too!


Wooo HOOO! 26.2 club, here I come.  Have a great day!



  • Meghann April 1, 2009, 3:51 am

  • Courtney (The Hungry Yogini) April 1, 2009, 4:34 am

    Hmmm…Announcing a new Marathon and a trip to BK on April 1? I can’t help but be suspicious =)

  • Rose April 1, 2009, 4:37 am

    April fools?

  • Anonymous April 1, 2009, 4:40 am

    I was totally in when you went to BK for breakfast, thinking, hmmm somthing different here. But the marathon totally tipped me off! Happy April Fools!

  • hillary April 1, 2009, 4:41 am

    happy april fool’s day?!

  • Kristin April 1, 2009, 4:45 am

  • Amy April 1, 2009, 4:56 am

    haha the new zealand butter tips me off, plus that’s not how US BK food comes. Trust me…I have lots of experience in my previous life. 😉

    oh yeah, and too – the picture totally is in a photubucket album that I seriously doubt came from you! 🙂

    Good ONE! 😀

  • Haleigh April 1, 2009, 4:57 am

    Is that an April Fool’s joke? lol.. not saying you couldn’t do it, because you’re a fantastic runner and you most definitely could!! Good luck 🙂

  • Katie April 1, 2009, 4:59 am

    Happy April Fools to you too!!

  • haya April 1, 2009, 5:03 am

    i almost fell for the burger king but you didn’t get me with the marathon 😉

    good one! keep your eyes open for silliness today.

  • Jen April 1, 2009, 5:07 am

    Seriously??? You’re doing a marathon this weekend??? NUTS! 🙂

  • VeggieGirl April 1, 2009, 5:07 am


  • Oz Runner April 1, 2009, 5:07 am

    it’s fun to be spontaneous….good luck on the race…not sure those BK hash browns will help with your training though ( ;

  • Jess April 1, 2009, 5:09 am

    Happy April Fools to you too! Hehe you’re so tricky aren’t you!

  • Tyler April 1, 2009, 5:10 am

    april fools??? you totally had me for a minute….with both the breakfast and the marathon….or are you serious??? i guess i’ll have to read again later to find out!

  • Nicole (anotheronebitesthecrust.wordpress.com) April 1, 2009, 5:10 am


  • Mandy April 1, 2009, 5:15 am

    lol um april fools???

  • Christine April 1, 2009, 5:15 am

    If it isnt april fools…it will make you feel better to know I ran my first marathon this way. Merely 8 weeks after picking up running..without running further than 10 miles beforehand. It was also one of the hilliest marathons in the country…so it can be done! haha

  • Rhiannnon April 1, 2009, 5:19 am

    ah, shame on those who didn’t get the april fools joke (attn: veggiegirl, geeeeez)

    You and the Husband surely have to have some behind the scenes laughs at the comments you receive.

    What has been the most bizarre question you’ve fielded in comment history?

  • jenngirl April 1, 2009, 5:21 am

    Classic BK breakfast!

    Congrats on the marathon, I KNOW y’all can do it!!

  • RhodeyGirl/Sabrina April 1, 2009, 5:21 am

    silly girl!!!

  • Allie April 1, 2009, 5:22 am

    Ditto! I am seriously disappointed in the readers who are saying “april fools” but then pussy-ing back and saying “oh but you might be serious, i can’t tell” nonsense

  • Red Head, Yellow Dog April 1, 2009, 5:25 am

    oh you’re tricky!!!

  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point April 1, 2009, 5:26 am

    Rhiannnon – Hahah I know what what the strangest question is… I get a lot of weird questions and comments. I can’t pick, plus I wouldnt want to embarass anyone!

  • sloank April 1, 2009, 5:29 am

    Hahahaha as a teacher I should have known! April fools!!!!! I knew there was a catch!!!

  • Betsy April 1, 2009, 5:40 am

    That’s so funny – I’ve never seen you eat fast food for breakfast, and the one day you do you hear about a marathon on the radio!?! Yay for Burger King. 🙂

  • Erin April 1, 2009, 5:42 am

    I kept thinking “What?!” then I remembered what day it is! Nice!

  • teacherwoman April 1, 2009, 5:44 am

    Really? This isn’t some sort of April Fools joke, is it?

  • ksgoodeats April 1, 2009, 5:52 am


  • RunningWithin April 1, 2009, 5:53 am

    lol. I completely fell for this for a second until I realized it was April 1st, good one!

  • Elina April 1, 2009, 5:57 am

    Hmm, I was going to say you’re crazy for impulse signing up for a marathon… but now I’m thinking it was a joke. Right? right? 😆

  • Ashley April 1, 2009, 6:02 am

    April fools!

  • Anonymous April 1, 2009, 6:07 am

    I am sorry, but I have to say it: The comments on this post say so much about food blogging! I mean, people will praise anything and everything, just to seem nice so people will read their own blogs. It’s so fake sometimes!

  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point April 1, 2009, 6:11 am

    anon – maybe they are just sleepy? 🙂

  • Audrey April 1, 2009, 6:12 am

    i believed you right up til the marathon part haha..those hash browns do look delish though.

  • Brandi April 1, 2009, 6:28 am

    ha – you girls are crazy! You can definitely do it though!

    what a totally random and huge decision – maybe The King is on your side 🙂

  • healthy ashley April 1, 2009, 6:31 am

    Burger king and a marathon? WOW! You’re crazy but you can totally do it. I can’t wait to hear more about it!

  • girlrunningaround April 1, 2009, 6:33 am

    Holy Moly! You’re crazy! I can’t wait to hear the tales!

  • K April 1, 2009, 6:39 am

    Amen anon… I completely agree. It gets sickening sometimes…

  • Dori April 1, 2009, 6:40 am

    WOW. You are spontaneous! Good luck — this weekend??!! Wow! You are kinda my hero.

  • Dori April 1, 2009, 6:41 am

    Oh, haha. April fools.

  • jane April 1, 2009, 6:44 am

    this is totally an april fools joke, isn’t it?!

  • Whitney April 1, 2009, 7:05 am

    April Fools! Nice job.

  • Kristie Lynn April 1, 2009, 7:06 am

    Wait… seriously? Thank goodness I’m reading through the other comments so I’m reminded it’s April fools. All I could think was… she’s not really that oblivious, is she? She doesn’t really want to get injured running a marathon when she is having trouble training for her upcoming 15 mile run….

    And all I thought about the BK packaging was “hmm, BK packaging changed?”. Heh I’m pathetic.

  • Carolina John April 1, 2009, 7:12 am

    now THAT’s how you commit to an april fool’s joke. Good job!

  • Matt April 1, 2009, 7:14 am

    Nice April Fools joke!

  • Ryan (Chase Daylight) April 1, 2009, 7:19 am

    Hahaha…April Fools 🙂 Good one!

  • tfh April 1, 2009, 7:28 am

    Hahah! Now, that’s the way it’s done. 🙂

  • Katie April 1, 2009, 7:29 am

    whoa! you are crazy!!! But I definitely agree you run enough to be prepared. good luck! I am doing a sprint tri Saturday! I am super excited!

  • Erica April 1, 2009, 7:41 am

    ok…I’m glad I’m not the only one who didn’t get that this was a joke…hehe

  • Erica April 1, 2009, 7:43 am

    PS- whats up with the anon comment? Yes, I only read your blog so you will read mine….umm?

  • Run Sarah April 1, 2009, 7:46 am

    April Fools!

  • Sarah April 1, 2009, 7:50 am

    Whoa – that is out of control! Can’t wait to read about it.

  • Victoria April 1, 2009, 7:51 am

    April Fools! But I totally believed you for a good minute or two there.

  • Amanda (Two Boos Who Eat) April 1, 2009, 7:51 am

    Just reading the comments here made me laugh!

  • Niki April 1, 2009, 7:54 am

    Haha I’m thinking April Fools?? I’m sure you could do it if you really tried though!!

  • kirsten April 1, 2009, 8:01 am

    I completely believed this until I read Meghann’s post… good one ! 🙂

  • carolinebee April 1, 2009, 8:04 am

    baha i will admit i TOTALLY BELIEVED you…you are a spontaneous running maniac so it wouldn’t be COMPLETELY INSANE, although you would’ve been like hey knees i hate you!! 😀

  • ryane.murray@gmail.com April 1, 2009, 8:09 am


  • Lynne April 1, 2009, 8:14 am

    April Fools!!

  • HangryPants April 1, 2009, 8:40 am

    April Fools?

  • Danica's Daily April 1, 2009, 8:42 am

    You are too funny! Great april fool’s….You all plan on doing a marathon plus .4 – you over achievers ;o)

  • LT April 1, 2009, 8:52 am

    Is it weird that I thought the marathon part was more believable than the BK?!? Haha. I actually used to LOoooooove their ham & cheese "croissanwich", but it's a little too salty for me now.

  • greendogwine April 1, 2009, 8:59 am

    SO here’s the thing. You always say your knees just aren’t capable of doing more than half…that makes me suspicious young lady….april fools? 🙂

    If not – more power to ya – I know you’ll kick ass even if your knees fall apart on you…

    but i have a feeling you are pulling our leg 🙂

  • Kath April 1, 2009, 9:33 am

    Caitlin I totally believed the breakfast!!
