Thanks for all the love yesterday.
You kids are the bestest.
Thankfully, the soreness was kept at a minimum.
After the race and most of yesterday, my hip flexors pretty much hated me. But we worked through our differences, mostly with casual walking around the ‘hood, and today is a much better day.
But let’s talk about important things.
The best part of finishing a half marathon?
Other than that weirdly awesome sense of accomplishment, yada yada…
Indulging in some seriously good food.
After an amazing breakfast with the family, my Sunday afternoon was split into work (yeah- I must stop doing that) and lounging on the couch while cheering on my Bears to victory (Bear Down!!!!).
I was also anxiously anticipating my date with Tiffany @ Snack Snark Bark!
Miss Tiffany was in town for an extended wedding weekend, but we definitely made sure to squeeze in some blogger bonding time.
By being featured on Food Network.
Plus, it’s a burger bar. Which is exactly what I was looking for after the Chicago Half Marathon. CHOW TIME.
Tiff came with her lover boy, and he offered to share the massive salad he ordered.
“I ran a half today. There is no healthy food entering this body today.”
This is a rule.
Truffle fries with parmesan. ‘Nuff said.
We caught up with all the gossip “behind the blog” and decided one of these days I’ll have to go to Denver. Who’s comin’ with?
Anyway, as mentioned earlier, Monday was spent being stiff like an old woman. That in combination with my blood shot eyes from lack of sleep?
Hopefully today, weirdly enough because Tuesdays generally blow, I’ll be a little better off.
If not, I’ll just do what I did yesterday. And hobble my way down the street to get one of these:
Yes, people. I’ve discovered Crumbs Bakery.
My waistline is already concerned.
