  • Meaghan knew Vinnie had to be on the Dr. Drew show
  • She is very involved in podcasts and running


  • Meaghan went to Runner's World Festival (4 races in three days (1/2 marathon))
    • Generally, people want to "carb up" before races
    • At this conference she went to they had a gluten free pasta option
  • Often, Gluten-Free marked foods are quite processed 
    • eat REAL food, not foods that have to be marked gluten free if you can 
  • It is frustrating when everyone asks if she eats "Quinoa" because she is gluten free
    • She said "Fuck Quinoa"
    • Even Quinoa can make you inflamed


  • There is resistance to black women wanting to run/do triathlons simply because their hair can be hard to deal with and requires a lot of work
    • Meaghan thinks it is healthy and good to discuss race and gender and it makes the world interesting that people are different  
  • Vinnie loves people of all races, genders, religions even if he rants or makes comments :)
