How a middle-of-the-pack half marathon runner goes about fueling her body before and after her most recent half marathon. (Did I just third person myself, weird?!)

Yes, Sunday was a good freakin' eating day. Well besides breakfast, that was more for functionality than anything. I wish I could eat like this everyday, my wallet and my waist line would hate me for it! Sometimes (or always) you have to splurge on goodness after a tough race and a great weekend!!

Eat all the food...run later to compensate...

  1. So um you are NOT a middle of the pack runner - I saw your stats lady! Good job!

    Your pre/post race food makes me think I need to run more. The icing on that cinnamon roll?! That chicken and waffles would have also found its way onto my plate. I can't believe he shared with you - what a keeper!

    p.s. I ran 4 miles today and almost died. This is huge for me. HUGE!

    1. Aww thanks girlie!

      Haha. I run to eat! I like food way too much to NOT run ;) Yeah, cream cheese icing, balanced out the sweetness perfectly! I lucked out...the Boy shares very well!!

      Yes, nice to hear you're running. I'd high five you if I could! Any miles are better than no miles, way to get after it :)
