Stories of a gal who loves to run. And eat. Probably mainly eat. But it wouldn't feel right just having a blog about how much I love to eat. So I had to add the running in there. Yeah, running and eating. That's me.
Usually I plan out what I am going to eat after a long run, but then sometimes I don't feel like eating what I got. So today I decided I would do my run, and then eat whatever I was craving afterward.
After 10 1/2 tough miles, my body decided it wanted mesquite bbq potato chips. This is not a common craving (I can't remember the last time I had these - last summer maybe?) so I went with it.
Me and my new BFF
They hit the spot! Sweet, salty, crunchy, and a little spicy.
Besides eating delicious artery-clogging snacks I have also been falling back into last summer's race addiction. Last year I went a little crazy registering for races and ended up doing 7 half-marathons in 7 months. This year's race calendar was looking pretty empty except for my ultra this fall, but I took care of that! On the schedule so far -
June 9th - Helvetia Half-Marathon
June 23rd - Rock n Roll Seattle Half-Marathon
July 15th - Fueled By Fine Wine Half-Marathon
August 26th - Eugene Women's Half-Marathon
Looks like we will be doing a lot of racing this summer! None of them are going to be for PRs since I won't be completing full training cycles for any of them, they are all just for fun. I love the half-marathon distance, it's perfect for where I am in my running right now.
