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.)
