    Gurl.. thats a boatload of cals you burnt on your running stuff. Are you carb feasting before your run like that? I think you are supposed to cuz you burn off your carbs running mileage like that.

    Packing the lunches isnt the hard part.. its actually having the time to eat it. emoticon We arent supposed to eat at our desks... and litterally its zip to the frig and pop something in your mouth. Thats normally how my lunch works as well. You know I have a bad habbit of eating fast anyway.

    the frig is stocked back up.. lots of fruits and veges and rotisserie chicken. Looks like last nite chop had too much salt and threw me into overage. I got an abundance of protein and salt.. and low carbs. hmmmm.

    This mornign I broke out my itty bitty lil skillet and cooked up some egg beaters, put them in a thin with a ww cheese.. and some strawberries. I figured I better just go ahead and eat.. since looks like the salts affected my weigh in. blah blah.

    so your polar doesnt allow any online posting?
    My polar 12 did.. but didnt like.. post to FB like your nike does.
    hmmm. thats definately something to think about.

    I do miss my trophy.
    Luv u more!

    Hi Jenny and good morning!

    I did complete my first 1/2 marathon on Saturday June 12 in San Francisco! Woo Hoo! It was super hot, especially for San Francisco. I ran the whole time, I did stop briefly for water. I completed the 1/2 marathon in 2 hours 25 minutes; an 11 minute pace. I loved it, heat and all. I am signing up for my next 1/2 marathon in November! When is your 1/2 marathon?

    Have a fabulous day!

    Ciao, Donlyn
