Logging a Few for #megsmiles

Today was not a run day for me for a variety of reasons. It's bitter cold, and I was without a car today. But I wanted to participated in Meg's Miles and show my support for this fallen runner. Meg Menzies was killed by a drunk driver during her morning run on Jan. 13. Today, runners across the country set out to log some time on the road in her memory.

Since I was homebound, I got on Jenny's bike trainer for the first time in longer than I care to admit. It took me an embarrassingly long amount of time to pedal 25 miles, but I don't care. At least I have the privilege of being alive today to log the miles. My thoughts wandered to Meg's family often. I hope all these runners coming together offer some small moment of solace for the family.

This afternoon was a huge time suck because we switched service providers for our phones, meaning we got new phones and spent h-o-u-r-s at the store doing it. I switch from the Galaxy S4 to the iPhone 5c. We'll see how that goes.

I did the grocery shopping today and came home to make muffins for Mandy for her birthday tomorrow. By request, I made coffee cake muffins. Here's hoping the crowds like it tomorrow.

And now, we're watching Spring Breakers for reasons beyond my comprehension. Have a nice evening, all, and be safe on your runs tomorrow.

tell me more why you switched carriers and which you switched to. Also is your car in the shop??

The muffins look delicious. I actually liked "Springbreakers" believe it or not. Congrats on the 25 miles!

We switched from Verizon to T-Mobile because it's a lot cheaper. My car is just as crappy as ever, but it was my husband's car that was in the shop.

We stopped Spring Breakers and are on to Flight.

I hopped on my bike yesterday for #megsmiles, too, since I can't run. My heart goes out to her family.

Welcome to the iPhone crew! :)

I have an iPhone 5c, and I love it. Which color did you get?

25 miles on a bike trainer is still a HUGE accomplishment... I can barely do 5 or 6 before I'm like, this is boring.

Way to go! I did 5 myself yesterday for Meg.

And those muffins look amazing. Do you have a recipe for these somewhere?! If they are anything like your chocolate chip cookies, I must make them. STAT.

And we watched We're the Millers last night- actually really good! Haven't seen Spring Breakers yet!
