Oldies But Goodies

in All Posts

On Saturday, I posted this picture and said,”Guess where we are going on Sunday?”

If you guessed The Players Championship, you were right!  That famous hole is called the Island Green, and all around it the grounds slope up like a stadium.  It makes for a very fun golf tourny! 


We’ve gone to TPC for 3 years now, but I don’t have any past recaps to share with you because they don’t allow cameras or cell phones into the event.  Unfortunately, TPC is not know for healthy/vegetarian food options, but I survived on beer and potato chops.  🙂


On the way home, I ate a big Chipotle vegetarian burrito (side note: the pinto beans have meat in them) in preparation of fueling up for today’s workout.


Ashley and I are going to attempt to bike 80 MILES today.  I am feeling pretty drained from a full day of walking around a golf course – and we didn’t get home until 10 PM – but I’d much rather attempt what will likely be my last super long ride before the 100-mile race on May 23 with someone else.


Breakfast had some extra calories, too:


Oatmeal contained:


  • 3/4 cup oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup almond breeze
  • Banana
  • Toppings:  Pecans, Coconut, Brown Sugar


Since I’m leaving you without any decent entertainment, here are some oldies but goodies for you to pursue:



And… I’m off!

    Your 30 Day Shred review is how I randomly found your blog 🙂

  • Tracey @ I'm Not Superhuman May 10, 2010, 7:55 am

    80 miles is borderline insane. But in a good way. Good luck!

  • Estela @ Weekly Bite May 10, 2010, 7:56 am

    80 Miles???? What a way to start the week!

    Have a great ride!

  • Kate May 10, 2010, 8:02 am

    I always thought it was the black beans that had meat in them! Good to know.

  • Beth @ Beth's Journey to Thin May 10, 2010, 8:05 am

    Ohh good to know about the beans at Chipotle! I do love their burritos though. Good luck with your 80 miles- you’re a rockstar!

  • John May 10, 2010, 8:06 am

    Good luck on the ride today! Glad I’m working today 🙂

  • Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday May 10, 2010, 8:12 am

    Pinto beans have meat in them? How is that possible?

  • Heather May 10, 2010, 8:12 am

    good luck, you beast!

  • Kelly @ Healthy Living With Kelly May 10, 2010, 8:12 am

    80 miles.. damn. Good luck Caitlin!

  • Courtney (Pancakes & Postcards) May 10, 2010, 8:20 am

    Good luck with the ride!!! That is INSANE. I wish I was as strong as you are! So inspiring. And please fill us in about the pinto beans… first I´ve heard of that!

  • Maura May 10, 2010, 8:23 am

    OMG, I’m sooo jealous you went to TPC! I was watching allll day from home! It made for a great Sunday but I would have loved to be in on the action. Good luck on your ride 🙂

  • Sarah @ cocoanutshakes May 10, 2010, 8:29 am

    Thanks for the post on SLRs!!!!!! The book I use is so confusing…

  • Heather (Heather's Dish) May 10, 2010, 8:30 am

    i am seriously so jealous! when i lived in dallas i’d go to the Byron Nelson Championship ever year, and I had a great time. The PGA tour is one of those things that’s kind of hard to watch on TV sometimes, but when you’re right in the action and excitement it’s a blast! good luck on the 80-miler! 🙂

  • Julia @ www.britbride.com May 10, 2010, 8:32 am

    Good luck today. My fiance is well into golf too but I have never been to a tournament. Would be good.

    Good luck on the 80 mile ride. Riding with a friend will make the miles go faster and hopefully, you will feel terrific. It will boost your confidence for the 100 on the 23rd.

  • Paige (Running Around Normal) May 10, 2010, 8:44 am

    How cool! That course looks beautiful! Good luck on the ride:)

  • Ilana May 10, 2010, 8:48 am

  • Tonyne @ Unlikely Success Story May 10, 2010, 8:50 am

    Have a great ride today! I’m starting to get really envious of people who can bend their knees. 🙁

  • Cassie @ A Very Busy Mind May 10, 2010, 8:54 am

    Good luck today, Caitlin! Rock it like you know you can!

  • Heather @ Side of Sneakers May 10, 2010, 8:54 am

    80 MILES?!? Good luck!!!! Rock it!

  • Megan May 10, 2010, 9:03 am

    if you get an 80 mile ride in before the century, you’ll do fine! I only had a 70 mile ride in and I felt surprisingly good on Saturday when I did my century. The only thing that bothered me what my bum. : ) Have fun!

  • Christina May 10, 2010, 9:07 am

    Good luck with the 80 miles!! And wow, thanks for the Chipotle info. I had no idea about the pintos!

  • Amanda May 10, 2010, 9:08 am

    When will people learn that meat is not a flavor?

    Good luck on the bike ride. You’ve made me want to love biking. I got a road bike for Mother’s Day and I’m terribly scared of it for some reason. I fell the first time I tried to use my clips. Did a 10 mile ride this morning with regular shoes on. I cannot imagine even attempting 80 miles! You go girl!

    • caitlin May 10, 2010, 3:09 pm

      try getting used to the clips in a doorway 🙂

  • kalli@fitandfortysomething May 10, 2010, 9:18 am

    hope you have a great ride. i am glad you have someone to do it with-it will make it go by much faster! i rode 50 on saturday with friends and it was glorious 🙂

  • Jenny May 10, 2010, 9:25 am

    Good luck on your ride!

  • Kelly May 10, 2010, 9:28 am

  • Sarah for Real May 10, 2010, 10:20 am

  • Claire May 10, 2010, 11:04 am

    I read you tweets about the non-veg friendly eats, that is so frustrating! Oh and I can’t wait to hear about the ride!

  • Lisa May 10, 2010, 11:14 am

    Good luck on the 80 miles!

  • Johanna B May 10, 2010, 11:24 am

    Looking forward to the recap of your ride. The Gran Fondo is looming closer and closer. I re-read your post about workout embarrasment. Great post. Thanks for the reminder.

  • Nicole, RD May 10, 2010, 11:24 am

    Good luck on the 80-miler! Wowza! I’m going to read on how to use a SLR camera – thanks for posting that!

  • Corinne May 10, 2010, 11:43 am

    Good luck Caitlin!! Yay for work out buddies. You two are going to DOMINATE the ride

  • Jenna (Hello, I Love You) May 10, 2010, 11:49 am

    They have meat in them?! Thanks for the heads up!

    Oh and 80 miles? You are inspiring! Get it, girl!

  • Katie @ Ordinary Girl, Extraordinary Journey May 10, 2010, 11:54 am

    Good luck on your 80 miles today!!! I started reading your blog earlier this year so I’ve missed a lot of those “oldie” posts. Going to catch up now 🙂

  • Ashley May 10, 2010, 12:10 pm

    I can’t believe the pinto beans have meat in them! How did you learn that and do they offer a different bean option for vegetarians? Good luck on your ride!

    • caitlin May 10, 2010, 3:10 pm

      the black bean are veg. the lady at the counter told me they weren’t veg when i requested a vegetarian burrito with pinto beans 🙁

  • Samantha @Food Edu May 10, 2010, 12:12 pm

  • Sarah May 10, 2010, 2:39 pm
