The baby wanted a grilled cheese sandwich and I wanted a quesadilla for dinner.
So, we compromised.
You are not allowed to say that jam on a grilled cheese sandwich is gross until you try it. The night before I run a race or any long run I really try to stay away from fiber hence my simple carb dinner.
I FINALLY got my donut.
Some days I have a real hard time ever getting out of my workout clothes.
Billy and I went to go pick up our American Fork 1/2 Marathon race packet yesterday, one of my favorite things to do together.
The race expo was pretty small but everything was organized perfectly! This race is really special because:
I loved that they had ribbons for participants to take and put on their bibs that corresponded with different types of cancer awareness!
After the expo we raced home because we have been looking forward to watching the Track and Field Olympic Trials for a long time.
My favorite event from last night was the 10,000 meter and my bff Dathan Ritzenhein (remember when I interviewed him?) made the Olympic team along with Galen Rupp (took 1st) and Matt Tegenkamp (took 2nd).
Rupp is the fastest non-African distance runner!!! He made the race look easy and was smiling and waving for the last 50 meters.
And for the women’s 10,000 meter U.S. Olympic team:
The women’s race was SO exciting! Amy Hastings really took off in the last 100 meters and I was kind of freaking out.
Shalane Flanagan actually took third in the race but wasn’t racing to make the team since she will be running the marathon. She is kind of out of control and was racing on tired legs….she ran for 3 hours (28 miles) on MONDAY. Natosha Rogers actually took second in the race but will not be going to the Olympics because she did not have an Olympic A standard qualifying time. Rogers FELL and was trampled at the beginning of the race yet she got up, fought for it and ended up coming in second.
I guess you know you are a running nerd when your ideal night is a race expo and eating grilled cheese while watching the Olympic trials.
Who else watched the Olympic trials yesterday?
What was the last CHEESY food that you ate?
What is your run or race this weekend?
Did you eat at home or eat out last night?
