I feel like I have so much to say in this post! :) First of all:
- No Meat Athlete has a great post that proves you can be an endurance athlete and a vegetarian. Yay for veggies! I love his blog — he’s trying to qualify for the Boston Marathon.
Secondly, here are my eats.
I got very hungry this morning and snacked on Barney Butter and crackers.
Lunch was leftover soup from last night, a slice of whole wheat toast with hummus, and salad.
Thirdly (is that a word?), I signed up for my first race of the season this morning!
The race is on September 12. Better get my speedwork on!
Fourthly, today is the first day of the Official Operation Beautiful Charity Necklace Drive! As you know, I’m teaming up with Dress for Success Greater Orlando for a charity fundraiser! As part of this fundraiser, a portion of the proceeds from sales of the official Operation Beautiful necklace will go to Dress for Success Greater Orlando (I’m not making money off of this, of course!).
