Eating, running, expo-ing?

October 16, 2010

I’ve been doing all of these things to gear up for my race TOMORROW!!!  I’m a little excited.  Just a little.

I went on my last run before the race and it felt glorious.  Do you ever have one of those runs where you feel like your legs aren’t actually doing any work, but instead you’re just floating over the ground?  That was how I felt.  I take this to be a good sign 🙂

It’s been record highs here in Colorado so I’ve been digging into copious amounts of overnight oats of the pumpkin variety to keep me cool.

Layered with banana soft serve and topped with granola and a blob of Justin’s Choco Hazlenut.  Nothing better 🙂

So good that I had to repeat it on Saturday morning.

I switched it up with a different granola and a different nut butter and I mixed some blackstrap molasses in with my banana soft serve but that was a mistake.  I’ve decided molasses is not a taste that I enjoy.  Reminds me of hard alcohol and that’s not something I want in my breakfast, yuck!

At least the other flavors balanced out the alcohol molasses.

In other news, I finished off the last eggplant burger and was all too sad to see it go 😦

This apple tasted like dirt.  I refuse to buy non-organic ever again.

In lieu of the upcoming race I’ve been loading up on carbs.  Yes, I love carbs and yes I love having an excuse to eat them in excess.

Pretend there’s a beautiful pasta picture here.

Joey and I attended the race expo on Friday night and it was quite the experience.  Booths and free samples galore, plus mothers encouraging their toddlers to take in mass quantities of energy bites, which I’m sure made for a fun night…

We came home with bibs, goodies, t-shirts and more flyers than I’d ever like to see.  Oh and I bought a bondiband, which Joey modeled when we got home.

Nice.  And now it smells like a boyfriend in need of a shower… even nicer…

I’m devoted to finishing this paper before dinner at Carrabba’s tonight (told you I was already planning to go back) so I can RE-lax tomorrow and by relax I mean do the following:

  • Run 13.1 miles
  • Eat breakfast at Snooze (Pineapple Upside Down Pancake, anyone?)
  • Grocery shop
  • Make bagels
  • Trip to the pumpkin patch!!

Yes, I consider all of this to be both fun and relaxing, even the grocery shopping.  We’ll see how much I get crossed off that list…

What are your Saturday/Sunday plans?
