I sort of get a little excited when I make and eat a meal that is extremely cheap. Take today for example: Baked potato (costco ginormous one) with cheese, broccoli and a side of scrambled eggs (looked like death so I spared you the pictures of those and yes, eggs and a baked potato is a very strange combination) and an apple a few minutes later. The whole meal is pretty dang healthy and no more than $1.50. Why do I get such a high from saving money on my meals?
So that Billy will take me to dinner on the weekends and froyo every other day but also so that I can talk him into letting me sign up for races that involve a plane ticket, hotels and going to all of the touristy attractions and in my case the candy stores that charge $12 per lb of sour patch kids.
Chicago. I really really really want to run you October 2012. I feel good about shooting for a personal record on that course (if the temps don’t do crazy things to me.)
Speaking of cheap food:
Looks like Terra Moody (ran a 2:32 at the Chicago marathon and her pr is 2:30) enjoys some cheap food too…a corndog before a PR race?!? Maybe Billy is onto something with his love of corndogs.
And just because I am in a really weird mood and have no direction for this post whatsoever, how about a picture that made me really happy today:
What was the last veggie that you ate? How did you prepare it, or did you eat it raw?
Has anyone run Chicago before? What did you think of it? Anyone wanting to run the Chicago marathon this next year?
What are you having for dinner?
