Funny Foto and a Giveaway Teaser!

I decided last night that it probably wouldn't be a good idea to go running on a stomach FULL of spaghetti. I believe it was either SteveRunner or Chris Russell who said that carbo loading is more like colon loading. TRUE. So, this morning, I turned my scheduled interval run into a MP run. 6 miles @ 7:45 pace. I can still feel something a little strange with my leg, so I didn't want to push it. Good run, great weather. Nailed it. This weekend will be my last long run before Rock and Roll New Orleans. I can't believe that it is only 2 weeks away. Where has the time gone!?

Speaking of races, there are a LOT of people who are racing this weekend. Good luck to them all, hopefully the weather holds in your neck of the woods.

Next, and this is probably the most important thing. I am going to have a little giveaway to celebrate.....running? Blogging? Who knows. I don't know why I am doing it, but I'm going to bet the readers of this honestly don't care. Look for a post on how you can embarrass yourself enter this weekend. No clothing company has contacted me, no running gear sponsor has given me free loot. This is me giving a little bit of myself to you - in the least creepy way possible.

Finally, funny foto Friday. If only Facebook had these types of warnings. We'd all be in better shape.

Nothing worse than a brick in the stomach:(

That's why you're supposed to carb load the night before... so you can drop it before you run. (I can't believe I just said that.)

A giveaway... I'm almost scared to see what this could be about and what the prize is... with you I'm thinking beer will somehow be involved.

Have a great weekend!!!

I am loving that FB message. So true. So true. About this mystery giveaway. You know I am shameless when it comes to embarrassing myself or taking on a dare, so bring it on.

You've really let yourself go in that pic. Mix in a salad once in awhile.

I can only assume the picture is the reason your Blog was "blocked for unacceptable content" at the company I was working at earlier today.

Thanks for valentine's day spirit there! I remember before one my first races I ate spaghetti the night before. A whole lotta spaghetti. I felt terrible the next morning. That run was a challenge in pretending to ignore what was going on in my GI system.

I have never liked carb loading the day before. Never works for me but some greasy fatty foods sure do! Steak and eggs or something like that. Pizza and beer. Those are way better pre race meals for me.

You have lost some weight Adam!

Carb loading works better a couple of days in advance so you have time to get rid of everything...

My husband calls them "gut bombs". Or as I call it, "every single thing on the Taco Bell menu and why I refuse to eat a single thing from there."
