One more and Done

Yesterday was possibly the longest day of my life. I only had 24 hours to go before the Wills exam and I knew I needed to buckle down. I worked diligently all morning. After a couple hours of working I decided to drive home. On the way I passed by Huckleberry and there was an open metered space in front with 35 mins left in it! Why does this always happen to me?

I darted in and decided to get some of their prepared salads. A small portion is less than $4 and they have plenty of tasty ones to offer. I chose a protein rich garbanzo bean salad with cilantro and red onion.

This was a great meal. It was just big enough, inexpensive and kept me full. For me, getting a prepared salad doesn’t happen very often but I think I’m going to do it more often. I even had room for a little something sweet.

Yum. Runner’s fuel.

Yes, you heard me runner’s fuel. I went on a glorious 7.5 mile run yesterday. I’ve only gone on one other 8 mile run since the half and afterwards I felt tight and gross. Yesterday was totally different. I just threw on some music and enjoyed the route. It was weird because normally I listen to what can be described as “the trashiest music of all time” but yesterday I listened to an acoustic version of “Champagne Supernova” in the last mile. Go figure.

I also tried this during my run…

After the incident in my half where I reached for shot blocks and they stuck to my teeth I knew that while I really liked them, I needed to try something else. I liked how these “felt” when I was running but I didn’t like the taste. It was weirdly bitter to me. Maybe another flavor will do the trick.

Any runners have flavor suggestions?

  1. Congratulations on the amazing run, girl!
    That garbanzo salad looked great, and for the price… it really looks like an amazing lunch option!
    Now, about the shot..
    Which flavor did you try?
    Maybe you’ll like sweetener ones better…
    Who knows, hehe.
