Carbohydrate Junkie

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. :) 
Bill is in a meeting until 12:00, then I am going golfing with his boss, him, his co-workers and their managers. I will be the only non-employee, apparently someone couldn't come, and because I filled in at their last meeting, Bill's boss invited me to do the same. So it should be a good little time. And I can focus on drinking all the water I need to get down today. :) Then we are eating dinner at a Buffett, this usually totally grosses me out, but for what I will need to eat tonight it should work out pretty well. I am sure everyone will stay out and watch the football game tonight, but no alcohol for this lady... I'll be the one with the water, trying not to think about her foot.

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. :)
