Ready to Go

Well, I’m all packed and ready to go. Hope this can fit in the car, Michelle.

Remember last weekend, I mentioned my tummy wasn’t feeling so well? It wasn’t food poisoning, thankfully.  But I’m pretty sure it was the fuel before my run that day. For breakfast, I had Gluten Free Rice Krispies with Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze (instead of oatmeal) and half of a 7-hour energy shot. < —- bad idea


I’ve been fine for 2 months. I stopped eating sugar and stopped having my beloved Diet Coke before a run. The cereal has almost no sugar so I think it was the caffeine. When my stomach “goes rogue,” it takes days to recover. My stomach was in knots for two days. Then, the four days after poopmagedon, it’s like dry county.

Then after those 4 days, I think you can guess what happens.

I’m hoping everything will be back to normal in a few days. I do not want to have a crappy (ha!) race after two months of finally having no problems. Oh, and guess what just made me happy?


Now I’m off to finish some last minute things and watch American Horror Story. Guess I’ll be writing the recap in the car tomorrow. Savannah, here I come! 🙂

  1. Yippee for the good weather forecast! Sorry to hear about your poopy troubles. 7 hour energy shot? That’s intense. I’ve only ever seen 5 hour energy.*

  2. There are few things in life worse than poop troubles. That toilet picture killed me though. At least you can make fun of yourself! Always a good thing.
    I hope you have an awesome roadtrip! I won’t say good luck just yet because I’m sure I’ll hear from your bright shining face before Saturday, and then I don’t want to have to do the RE good luck, you know.

  3. Dude, what did I tell you about the weather? You are going to rock this race! AHHHH! So excited for you! And I really hope you poop soon. Not pooping sucks (trust me, I do it every day). Safe travels to Savannah!

  4. Woohoo! Awesome weather! Sorry about your poops. Or lack of poops.

  5. Most un-caring-sounding comment ever. But seriously, sorry about your poops.

    I absolutely love how very open you are about your bowel movements! I have NEVER met another girl that was able to openly discuss pooping the way I do. Most girls cringe when you bring up the poop conversation – like their Sh!t dont stink or something. Have fun in Savannah!

    Kick a$$, Ke$ha style!
