You Know You’re A Runner…

You know you’re a runner when you read the back of this van as “Ask for Gus”IMG_4462 (800x600)

But picture Gus… Yeah, that happened to me today.gus

I hit my work’s pot luck pretty hard because I have a race tomorrow. You know you’re a runner Monica when you use any excuse to carb load.pot luck spread

Someone made pineapple upside down cake fresh out of the oven. It was warm. My heart melted. I’ve definitely found my favorite co-worker SmileIMG_4467 (800x600)

You know you’re a runner when you sip on Chocolate Coconut water on a Friday night instead of wine.zico coconut water

I don’t like coconut water – plain or flavored, but I LOVE this new chocolate coconut water. I guess you make anything taste like chocolate and I’ll eat drink it! It tastes like chocolate almond milk. Try it if you don’t like regular coconut water – this is good!

    I laughed out loud at the Gus comment :) Someone is definitely a long distance runner!

    I’m going to seek out that chocolate coconut water! I don’t really like coconut water (but I like So Delicious coconut milk beverage–go figure), but I love chocolate milk!

    Here’s to hoping those Deviled Eggs provide enough fumes to propel you through a PR! Or at least give you something to enjoy about being up early on a Saturday.

    Haha! The Gus comment made me laugh out loud. I sat there staring at it like it says “Gus”, I dont get it!?…too funny!
    And thank you for opening my eyes to chocolate coconut water. I didn’t even know it existed!

    It’s so nice to hear someone else doesn’t like coconut water. I think it tastes like spit! I’ll have to look for the chocolate though. Good luck on your race!

    You look like you did pretty good at the potluck unless that wasn’t your only plate!!! :) Good luck on your race today.

    Ok I have to try chocolate coconut water! I have hated every coconut water I’ve ever tried (probably doesn’t help that I hate coconut) but chocolate? Now that sounds good!

    I don’t think even chocolate flavor could persuade me to try coconut water a second time. Since I have a very broad palate (aka will eat/drink anything) I figured I’d like it. Took a bottle to the gym, feeling all healthy and virtuous. Look at me!! Almost sprayed that nasty stuff all over the treadmill. Yuck! It’s not for me.

    Ever notice how the places where you’re supposed to emphasize “health” the most are the places with the BEST food at pot lucks/ parties?? When I was in undergrad getting my BS in nutrition, every single party consisted of about a thousand cupcakes, pies, pastries, bars…. and the savory food was JUST as delish.
    Love my co-workers.

    hmmm… chocolate coconut water seems iffy. i might be spoiled, though. i used to have to make a raw “cheesecake” at my old work using fresh coconut meat. the chef let us drink the coconut water after we cracked the young coconuts (sounds vicious) and that shiznit is delicious! the stuff in the bottles just can’t compare!
    hope your race went well!

    Hm… I don’t like coconut water either. I might need to try that stuff. I feel like I should like coconut water, but it just tastes…weird. Not awful, but not tasty, either.
