Happy Marathon Monday! Of course I had to start my morning with a run-not 26.2 miles unfortunately! I did an easy 3 first thing in the morning, which felt surprisingly good given the sugar coma I had all weekend! Run fuel? Maybe?

Did anyone watch the Boston Marathon this year? I didn’t but I had fun following the various tweets about it! My first real experience with marathons came a few summers ago when I somehow got hooked on the marathon running. Which is an unfortunate event to be hooked on, given how long the race is! Everyone thought I was crazy for being so enthralled-who knew that now I’d have run 3 half marathons?

I also love the outpouring of support for Boston. I’ve seen a few Boston Strong t-shirts here on my super isolated campus. I remember last year being sort of upset by the fact that no one here seemed to care-I wrote a rather heated blog post about it at the time!

I also remember wishing I could run 10 miles on my birthday that year….but knowing that wouldn’t be possible. But guess what? My birthday is in 2 weeks-this year, I could run 10 miles on my birthday if I wanted to. I probably won’t, but it wouldn’t be that big of a deal anymore. It’s amazing how much can change in a year!

Today, in terms of food, I began my journey to eat the Easter eggs. I can’t believe my mother sent me home with 18 hard boiled eggs…and that I didn’t realize it! So…expect a lot of eggs for a while. I may need to pick up an avocado for avocado egg salad.



Egg #1-totally necessary to match my eggs to my clothing. Clearly.

And eggs #2,3, and 4.



This is the before.




And the after-egg salad with spinach and tortilla chips. What do you guys put in your egg salad? I usually do mayo, mustard, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. I didn’t have any lemons so I improvised with an old orange that was too sour to eat anyways! My family likes relish in it but…blech. It’s not for me!

So, Mission Eat 18 Eggs Day 1 has ended. I am 4 eggs in. Stay tuned.

What’s your favorite use of leftover eggs?

    I loooooooove hard boiled eggs- especially when they look pretty 🙂 I ended up running 6 miles before my first class yesterday at 7am and didn’t even realize that it was the day of the Boston Marathon until that afternoon! Ha!

    Those glittery hard boiled eggs look so amazing. I bet there are even more delicious than how they look 🙂
