Savannah Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon, Here I Come

Where has the time gone? Holy moly, sometimes the day just gets away from me when my to do list is jam packed.

I flew thorough lunch today and enjoyed every bite.

Another Salad Gem

I made myself a lettuceless salad that included:

  • Kidney beans
  • Edamame
  • Sweet corn
  • Cucumber
  • Beets
  • Water chestnuts
  • Honey mustard dressing

It was pretty darn delicious!

On the side I enjoyed a cup of Chobani strawberry banana Greek yogurt. This flavor is a great one to try if you’re new to the whole Greek yogurt thang. It is sweet, flavorful and oh-so-creamy.

Smile! 🙂

I was initially concerned that I wouldn’t be full after this lunch, but I definitely felt satisfied. Beans + edamame + Greek yogurt = filling.

I’m Such a Sucker

Those Rock ‘n’ Roll marketing people sure know what they’re doing.

Less than two weeks after running in the Chicago Rock ‘n’ Roll half marathon on August 1, I received an email from the Rock ‘n’ Rollers about another half marathon that was just added to the race schedule: Savannah, Georgia!

Savannah Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon

Last year Ryan and I visited Savannah en route to a wedding in North Carolina and loved the city! Savannah is unbelievably adorable and we had a great time exploring the area and learning about the history of the city on a historic trolley tour.

Me & Ryan in Savannah, May 2009

Since I adore Savannah and had such a great experience with the Rock ‘n’ Roll Chicago half, I emailed Ryan about the race.  He said it sounded like a great one and would happily come with me to Savannah to cheer me on.

That’s all I needed! I used the sch-weet coupon code for $30 off my race registration from the email I received and signed up! I’m such a sucker for coupons.

Now you know where to find me on November 5, 2011! (While I’m there you better believe I plan on hittin’ up Paula Deen’s restaurant! YUM!)

Immediately after registering, I emailed Ryan to let him know I signed up under his last name. I already received a confirmation email addressed to me with his last name on it and it feels so crazy! I can’t believe we’ll be married in 2 ½ months!
