I cranked out the miles this weekend and so glad I did. I am feeling really good about the Fort4Fitness half coming up next weekend. Besides the fact I am beyond thrilled to be seeing some of my close friends and meeting new friends, I REALLY want to kick booty on this course.

M / 3-4 Miles
T / 3-4 Miles

Looks like we are here folks... ready to begin training for the St. Jude Marathon in Memphis. I also wanted to send everyone over to Holly's blog for an amazing recap of her donation page from Friday - please take a moment and read HERE.
I have a question - what do you eat before your long runs? I eat my usual - english muffin with pb, string cheese, and banana BUT I have noticed I do so much better on an empty stomach, but I am afraid that is not good. I ran 13 miles on Friday on an empty stomach with a pack of GU Chomps at mile 7 and it felt great. So not sure - your thoughts?
My weekend was very nice and relaxing. I got TONS of housework done, spent time making fatty dinners (Meatloaf on Friday, Saturday ribs, and Sunday Spaghetti Carbonara), put up my Halloween decorations (too many decorations throw me into a downward spiral of "freaked out"), watched tons of sports, ran, practiced golf with my babies, and studied for my mid-term... which is TONIGHT!
Tomorrow's post is in honor of my girl Erin from Homemade Happenings - she wrote how she wants to know more about "Mel" in day to day life - so tomorrow's post will be a CURRENT "Day in Life of Me".
Monday OutHow is your training going? Thoughts on fueling? Started fall cooking like a mad person yet, like me?
