10 Miles Before a Half

Last night Ben hit up Happy Hour with his co-workers so I paired my adult beverage with a quesadilla. IMG 0556 thumb 10 Miles Before a Half

Then, when he got home he mentioned fro-yo and I was on it!IMG 0557 thumb 10 Miles Before a Half

Since I have two half marathons back to back the first weekend of June I decided to do a test “run” if ya will, and do 10 miles today. I have a half marathon tomorrow. I know my legs will be tired, but I’m just hoping to feel good tomorrow and enjoy the race.IMG 0558 800x533 thumb 10 Miles Before a Half

I kinda think 10 miles is my new favorite distance to run. I’m not sure those new shirts are great for a heavy sweater like me though…IMG 0559 800x533 thumb 10 Miles Before a Half

Before my run I had PB toast and half a banana (because I shared it with Ben).

When I got back I rolled a bit and showered. Then, I wanted lunch. I’m used to longer runs on Saturdays (and later starts) so I usually have lunch-y food after a long run. But today it was only 10:30am! IMG 0568 800x533 thumb 10 Miles Before a Half

Disgusting leftovers salad…IMG 0567 800x533 thumb 10 Miles Before a Half

After my 10am lunch I hit up the expo for tomorrow’s half marathon. It’s a small race and the expo was at a 24 hour fitness location at the Irvine Spectrum. IMG 0578 800x600 thumb 10 Miles Before a Half

Okay, it wasn’t an expo – it was packet pickup. I was in and out in 3 minutes.IMG 0570 800x600 thumb 10 Miles Before a Half

Ben and I also hit up Costco to check out a ceiling fan that was on sale. It was a fail, but the chocolate chip waffle sample was a win.IMG 0583 800x600 thumb 10 Miles Before a Half

Since we were there, I grabbed my favorite bread…IMG 0584 600x800 thumb 10 Miles Before a Half

But, does anyone else think it’s weird that each slice is “81” calories – not 80 or 75… That seems suspicious (mainly because each slice is so doughy and delicious I would believe they are more).IMG 0587 800x600 thumb 10 Miles Before a Half

Aaand since we were there, Ben grabbed his favorite mixer. Looks like we’re going to have some fun tonight. I keep telling him I have a race tomorrow, but he can’t hear it. I think we should get his ears checked. IMG 0589 600x800 thumb 10 Miles Before a Half

    yesss i love that bread! i just eat it plain and toasted. my parents say it tastes weird (too sweet) for sandwiches, though. haha and i agree that the calorie count is oddly exact.

    I bought the same mix today… To ‘health up’ my margies, I’m blending in some mango (round 1), strawbs (round 2), and pineapple (round 3). I can’t tell you what’ll happen for any additional round though!

    Costco has the best samples! Its one of the reasons I love going in there.

    I had frozen yogurt today too but it was from some place called Yogurt City. First time I ever went there and it wasn’t too bad. Pinkberry is still my fav!

    I always wonder about calorie counts that are that exact. I’ve seen protein bars that are 217 calories and drinks that claim to be 103. Seems oddly specific!
