Eat Pasta –> Run Fasta!

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on September 26, 2009

Thanks to @maurat for the funny tweet tonight: “Eat Pasta, Run Fasta!”! :)

The rest of my pre-race eats…

Strangely, I haven’t been my hungry monster self today! I guess it is the nerves, but I have had to force myself to get enough food down.

Afternoon snack. 1 english cuke with hummus and balsamic (best combo ever!):

Sketchie got his rest for the big day…

He always sleeps with one eye open.

This one below was taken with the Canon Cybershot point and shoot:

And the Canon 30D DSLR:

Dinner was spaghetti…of course!

I mixed chia seeds in the sauce for an antioxidant kick.

It was just delicious.

With carrots.

And lots of H2O!

Dessert was energy dense organic cranberries and non-dairy dark chocolate chips. This combo was fab!

Time to finish prepping!

Unfortunately, the weather is supposed to be rain, rain, rain and WIND! BOO!!

UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!

Weather report changed!

Untitlegggggggggd

Then hubby and I are going to watch The Proposal and I may read another Marathon story in my book (I’ll find a real good inspiring one to set the tone!). Oh and I will be tweeting tonight of course!

I will be doing a quick post in the morning around 5:30am EST…see you then! Well, I’m sure none of you will be up except my UK friends.

PS- If any of you are running this race tomorrow and you happen to SEE me, please come and say hi! Most likely I will be all by myself! haha. Loner alert! ;)

Weeeeeeee. So not sleeping tonight! :D :D :D :D

Good luck on your race tomorrow! I just ran my first half marathon today! I actually started to get really emotional as I passed the 9 mile marker because I couldn’t believe how far I was running. All along our race trail they posted up inspirational quotes which really helped me since my husband (he’s in the military) couldn’t be there to cheer me on for my first race. And I can say this with all honesty the worst part of the run was the blisters developing on my feet. The Galloway method saved my butt in the end and kept me from getting fatigued. Overall it was a great race and once you’re in that crowd of runners and you start your nerves will completely vanish and you’ll just be excited that you’re really doing it! Good luck again, sorry as you can see I’m still feeling my runners high and get really excited for other’s racing!
