Yesterday afternoon I picked up my little brother (who is staying with us all weekend) and headed to the Long Beach Marathon Expo. This place always feels very nice and familiar to me because I’ve attended so many times! Even before running half marys/the blog/Ben/etc I did the bike 26.2 with my ex. Since then I’ve also run the half a few times and full once.
I scored a pair of Brooks Ghost 4s!!! I die. Unfortunately, I did not get the other shoes I ordered in time to break them in and I’m wearing old shoes for the race.
Seriously, these girls are gorgeous and amazing runners! I don’t know why they let me hang out with them, but I’ll take it! We talked running and other less important topics until it was too cold to stand being outside.
This morning I woke up with a smile because it is TIME TO CARB LOAD. Today is the reason I run. According to the experts (or the one Runner’s World Article I read) I MUST eat 95% carbs today.
I started with a Pumpkin Spice waffle (taken from my mom’s) – I expected to be disappointed, but they’re really good!(image source)
Okay, I gotta get back to carb loading! See ya in a bit
