Pre-Race Post

in All Posts

Gonna make this snappy – I have a race to prepare for!


The Husband and I went out to dinner and a movie.  We saw Harry Potter, which I thought was very good but kind of slow.


Before we left, I snacked on cherries.  We ate dinner at Dandelion CommuniTea (a vegan restaurant).  I love the funky vibe at this cafe:



I ordered the Fakin Bacon, a tempeh "BLT."


Ehh – I dunno.  It was good, but I only ate 1/2 of the sammie.  My stomach felt off anyway, so I’m not sure if I truly didn’t like it or if that’s just the stomach virus talking.


I did eat all of the hummus!


And I took a bite of the Husband’s wrap (I was jealous of his meal — it looked so much better than mine! Don’t you hate that when that happens at restaurants?)


I snuck a small mint chocolate chip ice cream into Harry Potter! 🙂


After we got home, I prepped all my running gear.  I’m excited to do a triathlon relay with Megan and Ryan! It’s going to be so fun and I can’t wait to cheer them on as they bike and swim.


I’ll be running a 5.15-mile trail race.  It’s my first running race since April 11!


Supplies:  knee sleeves, Road ID, sneakers, ibuprofen, knee tape and scissors.


And my cute running skirt and lucky sports bra.  We made homemade team shirts that will be revealed tomorrow! 🙂


Off to bed!  See you with a race recap.

    I'm surprised that a healthy vegan restaurant gave you what appears to be white bread! That is probably why it didn't go down well–I can't eat white sandwich bread now after years of ww.
    Anyway, GOOD LUCK with the race!!! Can't wait for the recap.
