This morning Lily and I completed our last long run before the Myrtle Beach marathon. I was prepared to be soaked due to the forecast of rain and snow, but luckily it was just snowing/raining the tiniest bit when we started at 8am, and by the time we finished 12 miles, we were only getting hit with droplets falling from the trees and power lines. The 12 miles flew by, and we even did 125 crunches afterwards.
I may have totally half assed my training for this marathon, but one thing I never half ass is the really important part of marathon preparation: the food.
|Marathon runners are known for their healthy eating choices.|
I swore I wasn't leaving the house on Saturday and was going to be a worthless pile of lazy crap all day, but Wegmans was calling my name. Because I love to eat. So as long as I was there, I figured I'd get some necessary items for next weekend. The candy and cookies are for the sundae bar I plan on creating after the race.
I continued to fail at my "no moving" plan as the day continued. Lily's strong powers of persuasion got me out of the house again.
It's a good thing my friends were on the straight and narrow in middle and high school because clearly I'm highly susceptible to peer pressure. Or maybe not. I refused both Carolyn's invite for a zombie bar crawl (for real) and Lily's invite for a party downtown. I'll do insane yoga poses in a 115 degree room for 90 minutes, but I'll be damned if I'll get dressed up to drink at a bar. Since so many readers said that my weekend plans coincided with their ideal weekends, I imagine most of my fellow bloggers are on board with this choice.
|I wasn't about to cancel on this hot date.|
My friend Kristin was at Target shortly after they opened to secure copies of the DVD for us. When I arrived at her house to pick mine up, she was on the final scene. For the second time. That day. We're not ashamed to be Twi-hards.
Between the wine, movie, Forever Lazy, and delicious Wegmans bulk chocolate, I swear I was experiencing euphoria.
Except for the parts of the movie that were making me dry heave and hide my eyes. The wine did nothing to help with that. I won't give away spoilers, but I'm sure my fellow vampire fans can figure it out.
Now we all have to wait until November for Breaking Dawn, Part 2. Thank god we only have 40 days until the Hunger Games comes out! I promise not to do a countdown or obsessively talk about it though. No I don't.
Have you ever drank an entire bottle of wine by yourself
before writing a blog post?
