Future Husband and I had a lovely ‘date night’ tonight. In between the craziness of work, school, and life…. sometimes we forget to spend time together! 🙂
We went to Spice, which was lovely… we’re thinking about hosting our rehearsal dinner there now, too! We ate out on the patio overlooking downtown Orlando. I started my meal off with a BIG GLASS OF WATER (no booze before the race!) and a yummy WW roll.
I think we can all agree restaurant bread is the BEST KIND! 🙂
I also had a baby greens salad, which included grapes, feta cheese, candied pecans, and green apples. I had a nice vinaigrette on the side.
And for my main course—PASTA, of course! The perfect pre-race dinner! I had mushroom and spinach ravioli. It was pretty good.
After our main course, Future Husband announced he "had" to have dessert. I wasn’t going to eat any until I saw this:
Ummm, HELLO!? This bride does not say "no" to chocolate cake. It was heavenly. I could literally smell the chocolate wafting up from me. I ate about 1/3.
When we got home, I laid out all my running clothes for tomorrow’s big 15K race and called Meghann to discuss the logistics for meeting up in the morning. I’m excited to have a racing buddy!
I am super excited and very optimistic that my leg will hold up! I’m going to heat (yes… heat… not ice. Icing has made this injury feel worse, oddly enough) it a little in the morning. I think I’m good to go, honestly! 🙂 🙂 🙂
For The Record….
Around 2:30, I ate a Larabar Ginger Snap while reading over some landscape plans…
I also had a not-yet-ripe peach….
And, around 6 PM, I had a handful of peanuts to hold me over until dinner.
OK — off to bed! I’m waking up at 5:15, having a BIG BOWL OF OATMEAL, and stretching out before I leave for the race! Wish me luck! 🙂 I’ll be thinking of all of you!!
1 hour, 26 minutes or better… HERE I COME!!!
