Running the last long run before the marathon tomorrow, a twenty mile run, on marathon pace, through Spokane... I will admit that I am a total carbohydrate junkie, so the day before a long run, is a guilt free carb-fest chased with so much water it's ridiculous. This morning, whole wheat bagel with natural organic peanut butter, and coffee with almond milk. And now, as I sit here at the Qwest Casino in Spokane I gorge on Villa Fresh Italian Kitchen's Mac & Cheese and a Chicken Ranch Stromboli. And the best part of this, that guilt I usually associate with eating these two items is washed away knowing tomorrow I will burn roughly 3,000 calories from my run alone. :)
While I am thinking about my favorite things such as carbs...
Favorite drink: Coffee, my secret love is a raspberry white mocha with an extra shot of espresso from Starbucks, but at over 600 calories a drink, I stick to coffee and almond milk
My Favorite Movie: Story of Us, god I love that movie
Favorite color: pink, duh
Favorite food: My grams used to make me the most delicious chicken enchiladas for my birthday every year and fried zucchini, I miss my grams...
Favorite TV show: long retired Friends, Breaking Bad is my currently airing favorite
Favorite book ever: She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb, I need to re-read this, it's been years
Favorite thing to wear: yoga pants and a sweatshirt that has been washed so much that it's see-thru
Favorite children's book: Where the Wild Things Are, although when my sister and I were little I used to read Clyde The Monster to her when she was scared, and she recently bought the girls a copy, and I love it so much.
I have no idea what that was all about other than I am sitting a casino filled with people that I don't know, needed to eat, too anxious to gamble alone and needed to kill an hour... Mission accomplished. :)
