The Worst Of Intentions

August 20, 2011

I had NO intention of getting up early to run this morning. Especially before the sunrise.

But when my roommate was up at 4:45 (!) to head out for a 14 miler, I was awake. And excited for the day.

And so after checking Twitter and realizing there was a group going at 6am, I got out of bed and put on my running shoes. There were tons of girls ready to run when I came down! Wheee!


Of course I’m glad I went – we had a really nice time! Got a little turned around, but we eventually ran on the greenway and had a nice group to chat with.

Showering felt gooooood!!!

Chatting it up with a table of ladies over breakfast sponsored by Attune this morning

There was fruit, Attune cereals, eggs, OJ, and yogurts to play with

I munched on this flavor – really liked it!!

I put together a bowl of Oikos Blueberry with fruit + Uncle Sam

Pus some fruit, OJ and Awake Tea

Went back for seconds because the bowls were small! Little milk that time.

Time to chat, learn, and play!

5 Sarah@The Flying ONION August 20, 2011 at 7:57 am

4:45…girl, you have serious motivation! 😀

And thank you for that, because I’m now slipping on my sneakers and heading out for a (hopefully) just as glorious run. 😉

hilarious photo of you… hold the show!!! Have fun at the conference!


7 Kristin @ eat healthy. be happy. live well. August 20, 2011 at 8:05 am

What a nice breakfast for a conference! Usually it’s just lots of pastries. The run sounds fun!! I’d get up at 6am to run too if there was such a great group of ladies going with me!


8 Brittany (A Healthy Slice of Life) August 20, 2011 at 8:11 am

I admire you ladies for getting up to run after a cocktail party the night before- impressive! :) Have a great day at the conference!


9 Katie @ Peace Love and Oats August 20, 2011 at 8:13 am

a 14 miler on a get-away weekend!?!? Haha guess that’s why I’m just now training for a 10K, perhaps one day I’ll be doing things like that! (big goal is a half marathon!). And is Uncle Sam’s a granola? I’ve never heard of it!


10 Sweet and Savvy August 20, 2011 at 8:14 am

Wow! I can’t believe attune sponsored such an AMAZING looking breakfast!:) love all the healthy options!


11 Hannah August 20, 2011 at 8:16 am

Have an awesome day! I wish I had a group of gals to convince me to run in the morning :(


12 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga August 20, 2011 at 8:17 am

Glad you ladies all got a run in. Impressive. Because no doubt everyone was up late chatting…and maybe there was wine drinking? :) And so 6am yeah, that’s early.

Love the 1st pic of you hamming it up…too cute!


13 Khushboo August 20, 2011 at 8:30 am

Unexpected workouts are the best- nice going!

You always feel better after a good run! Love having company to talk with – makes the time go by so much quicker. Looking forward to reading about the day, Kath!


16 Cait @ Beyond Bananas August 20, 2011 at 8:38 am

I can only imagine what all the pHilly residents are thinking when they see massive groups of healthy living gals running along the streets! Enjoy your day – can’t wait to continue to live the summit through you! 😉

WOW! You all really got after it! :) I’m pretty sure I would have went back to bed….. set the alarm for 5:50 and see if I made it down to run…


23 j August 20, 2011 at 10:18 am

When will we see you doing the “Rocky” on the Art Museum steps? You’re in my neck if the woods, I’m 35 minutes away on the Jersey side. Philly is an awesome city, enjoy it!


24 Estela @ Weekly Bite August 20, 2011 at 10:29 am

That’s so great you got a run in! Very impressive :)


25 Christine (The Raw Project) August 20, 2011 at 10:37 am

Holy cow, a 14-mile run at dawn – impressive! And impressive that you ran too, I enjoy my runs more with new company and scenery. Just not always that early. :-)


26 jassy August 20, 2011 at 10:39 am

tea and OJ? are they compatible in your stomach?


27 Alaina August 20, 2011 at 10:49 am

Haha, you definitely looked excited to be going out to run! :-)

29 Emily@SavoryandSavage August 20, 2011 at 11:02 am

Grats on getting the run in.

I keep seeing Uncle Sam’s cereal popping up – I am going to have to try it one of these days.


30 Maria @ Beautiful Busy Bee August 20, 2011 at 11:46 am

That looks so fun!!! I am so jealous of your opportunity to meet (and go running with) other bloggers! :) 14 miles is alot wow.


31 Aine @ Something to Chew Over August 20, 2011 at 11:58 am

Yum looks like there’s some good eats at HLS!

Hope your early start doesn’t leave you pooped for the rest of the day :)


32 Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife August 20, 2011 at 12:22 pm

WHOA that is early! I like the breakfast idea–tons of fresh fruit is SO yumm in the a.m.:)


33 Melody August 20, 2011 at 12:25 pm

I wish I could’ve made this years HLS, you look like you’re having so much fun!


34 Brittany August 20, 2011 at 3:07 pm

It’s such a great idea to run with a group in a new city! You get to explore with great company. Looks awesome!!


35 Meaghan O'Connor (My Spoonful of Inspiration) August 20, 2011 at 8:10 pm

Don’t you live it when other people are such good motivators! :)


36 Lexi @ A Spoonful of Sunshine August 20, 2011 at 10:18 pm

4:45 ?! Way to go girls. I was up at 5:30 a.m. for a flight to DC and was not happy about that, to say the least 😉
