I’ll have the race report up tomorrow morning! Long story short—> It was a tough race, I tried my hardest, I learned a lot and I am really happy with how it went.
Thinking about a large soda for the last 3 miles of the race got me to the finish line.
It was just as good as I thought it would be. Actually, it was even better than I had imagined.
It usually takes me awhile to be hungry again after a hard effort but I knew I needed salt (I add salt to my salads… weird) ASAP because the sweet gus that I took throughout the morning had me craving salty like crazy.
PS does anyone else besides Josse like these little mini corn things on their salad?
We ended up driving back north pretty quickly after the race which meant we stopped for a lot of stretch breaks. I don’t know why I always try to travel the day of a race because it does not help with the soreness. I even booked my boston flight in April to leave back home the same day as the race. Nothing like sitting on an airplane with zero leg room for a while right after running 26.2 miles. Someday I will learn.
The drive was pretty uneventful except for when my car decided to just stop. After hanging out on the side of the freeway for a bit it turned back on:)
When Brooke is gone I pretty much avoid being at home much. It just makes me miss her more and miss that little voice of hers. So I got home at 5:55 from St. George, got ready, made dinner and was at the movie theater by 7.
We went to see The Duff and I laughed pretty hard throughout the entire thing.
My other favorite post-race treat with an ginormous Oreo and a side of Lindsey.
Winter decided to finally show up in Utah. A whopping .2 inches of snow.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I hope you get to sleep in a bit this morning and enjoy an extra good breakfast!
