Ticket Madness

in All Posts

Once again, we had some glitches last year with ticket sales for the Healthy Living Summit – but nothing like last year!  Last year was an epic disaster than required a 2 hour conference call (at 9PM) with the other blog organizers.  This year, we had the system say we were sold out before we actually were, but other than that… things went great!


Due to the hanging chads, there are still some tickets available as I post this – so check it out!  I’m REALLY excited to see everyone in Chicago in August!


Other than HLS stuff, I got some chores done and a smidge of work – but not enough.  Oh well, there’s always tomorrow!  Right?


I also got outside and took James on a long run/walk.  I feel so much better and wanted to move my bod a little bit.  I have a lot of antsy pre-race energy.  I think we did about 2.5 miles in 36 minutes – James even ran for a little bit with me.  I threw in some sit-ups and push-ups at the house.


Pre-workout snack was Chobani Pineapple and brown rice crispes.


+ then I did a lot of mindless grazing.  I had a few mini chocolate pretzel, a handful of cereal, crackers etc.  I don’t mindless graze a lot, but I was definitely in the mood tonight!




Stir-fry tofu, butternut squash, broccoli, and brown rice with a sauce made of honey, balsamic, chili powder, cinnamon, and pepper.


On that note… I’m off to bed.  I want to wake up and it be Thursday!  Then it’s just one more day until I go to California.  Wahoo! 🙂

  • Help Meghan Run May 19, 2010, 10:26 pm

  • Katie@peacebeme May 19, 2010, 10:30 pm

  • Amy B (Second City Randomness) May 19, 2010, 10:32 pm

    I can’t wait to welcome everyone to the city! 🙂 I had a nice sigh of relief when I secured a ticket for myself…

  • Amber K @ sparkpeople May 19, 2010, 10:32 pm

    I so wish I could come, I’m sure everyone will have an AMAZING time. I can’t wait to read about it on everyone’s blogs!

  • Astrid May 19, 2010, 10:34 pm

    I am so glad you are feeling better! Hopefully your energy will stay up and you will make it through the race. I am going to the Healthy Living Summit, too. So excited!
    Is there any waw to put together a list of people that want roommates? I am looking to room with someone to save some money.

  • caronae May 19, 2010, 10:40 pm

    I so wish I could go to HLS. Unfortunately trips to Chicago are not in my summer budget. Wah! Anyways, your dinner stir fry combo looks amazing. I love the honey and cinnamon with the squash.

  • Emily Eats and Exercises May 19, 2010, 10:44 pm

    What a great looking dinner – I’m working on getting more creative with my sauces – yours sounds like a good combo – I’ll have to try it out soon.
    I can understand why you’re getting jittery about your race – I am too and I’m not even racing!

  • Molly May 20, 2010, 2:43 am

    Hey Caitlin! We’ve never met, but I’ve been following your blog for awhile now and LOVE everything you’re doing and inspiring others to do too. I’ll be seeing you in Chicago in August. Can’t wait to meet you!!! Great job on all of your accomplishments 😀

    • caitlin May 20, 2010, 10:10 am

      i’m excited to meet you molly! thanks for coming to HLS!

  • Hillary [Nutrition Nut on the Run] May 20, 2010, 2:46 am

    Do you think it would be possible to create a blog badge/icon for the HLS ’10 “goers”? : )

    • caitlin May 20, 2010, 10:10 am

      Yes, I’m going to do that today.

  • Freya @ Brit Chick Runs May 20, 2010, 2:58 am

    Oh I’m so gutted I couldn’t get a ticket!! If there was one in England, would you all come!??

  • Julia @ British Bride May 20, 2010, 3:50 am

    So wish I was USA based for the summit! I bet you are so excited/ nervous for tomorrow!


  • Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) May 20, 2010, 7:17 am

    You all are going to have so much fun! If I didn’t have an internship going on through those dates, I totally would have tried to buy a ticket. 😀

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin May 20, 2010, 8:26 am

    I love the sound of your sauce for your dinner! I’ve been looking for some new ideas so that I can stop using soy sauce and sesame oil on every stir fry!

  • Steph-exercise physiologist and artist! May 20, 2010, 9:13 am

    I seriously can’t believe your race is so close! seems like you guys have been prepping and blogging about it for so long and now it is finally (almost) here!
    I can’t wait to read all the recaps and see the pics. That part of Cali is so beautiful. I am going to San Fran for work in June and I can’t wait!!

  • Annie@stronghealthyfit May 20, 2010, 9:31 am

    Your meals always look SO good. What a great example of how varied and delicious vegetarian meals can be 🙂

  • Lindsay @ The Ketchup Diaries May 20, 2010, 9:41 am

    Scored a ticket and can’t wait to meet you!! Am I the only healthy living blogger that hopes to catch a slice of Chicago deep-dish pizza while I’m there?!? 😯 Moderation, my friends!

    • caitlin May 20, 2010, 10:11 am

      um, me too! don’t worry! 🙂

  • Kelly May 20, 2010, 10:17 am

    Glad you are feeling better, and glad it wasn’t strep!

  • Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter May 20, 2010, 10:58 am

    That sounds like our ticketing system to get football tickets for my University. Some people’s computers just can’t get through the system and others can get about 9 or 10 tickets for other people. It’s crazy madness and everyone gets so mad.
