Friday Update: Team Panera!

Happy Friday!

Normally, I don't post on Fridays but I have some awesome news that just couldn't wait until next week!

You may remember that I'm running the Akron Marathon Relay with some of the coolest people around- Jeff, Lauren, Chelsea, and Steff as a part of Team #4PrincessesandaFrog. You might also recall that we interact with Akron on social media so much that at the Pittsburgh Marathon Expo, they had left us a little gift- #runAkron stickers.

Well, a few weeks after Pittsburgh, Andrew (communications guy for Akron), invited us to be part of a partnership between Panera Bread and the Akron Marathon as official "Team Panera" bloggers!

Racing AND Panera?! What could be better?!

So, what does being on Team Panera mean? It means that I'll be sharing more about my love of all things Panera here on my blog- specifically, how their menu assists in my training. I have been a long time fan of Panera due to their yummy food and great low-point options for Weight Watchers.

They also have a great menu and training program set-up for Akron, though you can follow it for any race. Side note- their training plans are based on some of Jeff Galloway's and Hal Higdon's plans and you know how I feel about those gentlemen.

I am thrilled about this opportunity and can't wait to share more of the nutrition side of my training with you.

QOTD: What's your favorite menu item at Panera?


  1. Asian sesame chicken salad and green tea!

    1. Asian Sesame Chicken is my second favorite :-)

  2. That's awesome! Who doesn't love Panera? I love their Tomato Soup and the Napa Chicken Salad Sandwich (plus most everything else on the menu haha).

    1. Oh yes- their tomato soup is just awesome! I've never had the Napa Chicken Salad, I'll put that on the list!
