Post-Race Indulgence

So, it was a nice morning. The rain held off. I stuck to my whole negative splits race plan. Rocked the U2/REM playlist. It was good. I haven't seen any official results yet, but I'm pretty sure I wasn't too far off of what I did last year. So that's fine for me.

And since the race is held in conjunction with this whole goofy festival thing, the wonderman U.B. and I always take a little spin through the festivities. He gets his once-a-year elephant ear. (I would kill for an elephant ear, but I think I'd be paying for it until next Labor Day.) I got what you see above. Real, honest to goodness, German roasted almonds. Coated in cinnamon and sugar. They were still warm when I got them.

They are like crack. Really good crack.

And they disappear fast. Really fast.

I guess it's good they're a rarity, huh?

Strike that. No. They should actually be far more readily available.

(And people wonder why I run. Chocolate peanut butter shakes and cinnamon/sugar roasted almonds. That's why.)

They would be better if they were pecans. Glad you're happy with your results. Love you!

What a great way to begin and end your race day! Perhaps I should take up racing??? Nah just will indulge in the pre and post racing foods instead.
