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.
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?
