Race day had finally arrived, and I was very nervous.
Fortunately, the weather was perfect.
I had iced coffee and some yogurt for breakfast and a tomato sandwich for lunch. I quit eating around 2 pm because I prefer running on a mostly-empty stomach.
With chocolate granola!
I spent most of the day packing for my press trip and before I knew it it was time to go!
Pre-race photo, terror level = moderate.
I’m not sure how it happened, but somehow I finished it waaaaay faster than I had anticipated.
Then I got my burrito.
Manged two bites.
Then I puked up my burrito (and about a gallon of electrolyte-enhanced water).
After lying in the grass for a while and dipping our feet in Vancouver Lake, we headed home, stopping at Whole Foods for La Croix and frozen pizza.
My stomach had finally calmed down, and I was able to eat our Whole Food’s goodies.
It was seriously the best thing I ever ate.
