Pretty sure I walked 26.2 miles yesterday, I really am an expert on how to prepare for a marathon…..hot dogs and ice cream eating are another one of my tips for the days leading up to a race.
You wouldn’t expect anything less than the best on my blog in terms of fueling would you?
We first started the day with pancakes at some random diner near the race expo.
(Picture pre-butter and syrup……my hands always get sticky no matter how hard I try to not get syrup on them so I had to take the picture before I smothered them in goodness).
The NYCM expo is runner-nerds HEAVEN. The biggest race I have ever done is 2,000 people that means that this expo was 23 times larger than any expo I have ever been to. I kept texting Billy that I couldn’t even believe how happy I was to be surrounded by other crazies that enjoy paying mula to put themselves through blood, sweat and hitting the wall.
I especially loved meeting friends for the first time. MAEGAN ABOVE and KERI, me, cousin and LIZ below (ps Liz is going to SUB 3 on Sunday!!!) I am going to pay for them to all move to Utah so that we can run, eat and watch movies together daily.
I asked Siri, ‘What is the best pizza in all of NYC’ and she responded Lombardi’s. Siri has yet to fail me. I think I would have thrown my phone in the Hudson if she guided me to the wrong place for pizza. Each meal while I am here is very special to me because there are approximately 1,000,000 more delicious choices in NYC than there is at home.
I don’t even know how to explain this pizza. Sorry Billy, I don’t think I will ever be able to eat a Little Caesars $5 hot-n-ready ever again…….no pizza will stand a chance with my new pizza standards.
Other adventures included the Statue of Liberty, Soho shopping, Ground Zero, Queens (on accident) and more shopping (a 4-level F21…..holy cow that was overwhelming).
We ended our day at Times Square and I had to make BIlly a little jealous with……..
a NY hot dog for dinner.
Dear Billy, they really are as good as we thought they would be. Every time we watch 30 Rock and they are eating one we both drool a little bit.
Any 30 Rock fans?
-I am hoping to meet Tina Fey while I am in town.
Would you rather live in a BIG CITY or a small town?
-I am liking this big city thing…..
What do you order when you go to a diner type place for bfast?
Any fun plans this weekend?
