Lou is going on day 5 in her Belle dress. She feels beautiful and unstoppable in it so I won’t ask her to take it off. Another reason is that I’m going on day 5 in my Athleta beanie and New Balances. When you think of costs per wear, we are both basically earning money at this point.
This past week, a big awesome Dunkin Donuts opened on my favorite 10 mile route. I was in the middle of a tiring marathon pace run, but I was so excited I stopped and snapped a picture. Note to self: bring cash next time.
After a race, my stomach always feels uneasy. I usually can’t even look at the tables of food and treats at a marathon finish, much less indulge like all the other runners. The only thing that settles my stomach and brings me back to the land of the living is: a Coke (the real stuff) and a donut. If you have a sensitive stomach after running or racing- try a Coke, Dr. Pepper, or Sprite. The combination of the sugar and carbonation makes everything better.
If you’ve read my FAQ, I briefly mentioned that one time I ate a dozen donuts after a half-marathon. It was in Santa Barbara with my sister-in-laws, Lisa and Rachael. In my defense, I waited way too long to eat anything, so by the time my appetite finally kicked in, I was ravenous and the box of donuts was right in front of me.
One time, Rachael and I were at our kids’ preschool graduation party and there were donuts there. I reached for one. The teacher said, “you don’t strike me as someone who eats donuts.” Rachael laughed out loud.
One time B and I were in New York City and I decided last minute to run a half-marathon in Central Park. While I ran, he waited in line for two hours for a famous Dominique Ansel Cronut. That’s love, my friends.
