How did I forget to show you some of the ways that I refueled after my Wonder Woman Century Ride because clearly that is the best part of endurance sports:)
Please excuse the food that spilled on my camera lens that created a big blur where my ear was supposed to be.
After the ride they had MOUNDS of pasta and salad there waiting for me. My brain forgot that cameras even existed and that I should have taken a picture to show you how delicious it all was. Ziti noodles and marinera sauce have never tasted so good in my entire life.
After I went home, searched for my next century ride that I want to do and jumped off the couches in the living room for 10 minutes screaming I DID IT, I met up with my mom to enjoy one of these…..
A s’more cupcake. The Sweet Tooth Fairy in Orem has sucessfully mastered the correct ratio of frosting to cake (1:1) and the addition of a marshmallow knocked any cupcake I have ever eaten out of the water.
By the time I got home Billy was back from his 11 miler and we were ready to go over to his bro’s house for more food and football.
Enter in Salsa with ORANGES…..
2 large naval oranges, skins cut off and each slice cut in 3 pieces
1 can (14.5 oz.) diced tomatoes, drained
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1 tsp. cumin
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
Mix all ingredients together until well combined. Let sit 1 hour before serving for flavors to soak in.
We topped our Mahi-Mahi with the salsa and I really think you need to try it! We also had grilled zucchini (with lemon juice and olive oil), brown rice and strawberries.
What do you think is the shortest long run that you should be able to do before doing a marathon (not your first marathon….mentally I have it, just wondering about cardiovascular endurance)?
-I am trying to figure out if the New York Marathon is even a possibility.
What is your favorite way to cook fish? What type of marinade/seasoning/topping do you like best?

Favorite Grilled VEGETABLE?

Who got into BOSTON 2012?
******EDITED TO ADD….I just want to FINISH the NY marathon, whether I walk it or end an hour slower than my PR….I just want the experience! THANKS EVERYONE!
