Happy Friday! No running photos for you today (resting up for a long run tomorrow), but I do have a running question that Anthony and I randomly discussed this morning.
What do you eat before a run?
A lot of my running buddies go for the classic peanut butter + banana or peanut butter + toast. I don’t know why (maybe the high fat content?) but peanut butter makes me queasy on a run. I’m a fan of plain old toast. With a bit of butter and jam! And a side of coffee.Other things I’ve heard people eat before a run: Clif bars, yogurt, dates/raisins, Gu, bagels, eggs, and nothing. What about you?!
And the best thing to eat after a run: pizza and/or Mexican food. Speaking of Mexican food… here’s an overload of tortillas etc from the past week. First, a dinner on the patio of Rosepepper Cantina last night!Look who’s back.I got a massive plate of fajitas. I think this is the first time in history I actually had to surrender and take some home in a to-go box.Mo’ Mexican: the other night, my friend Tracee and her husband invited us over for a fiesta! What a treat. We started off with an herby green gazpacho.Up next: beef carnitas! These were perfectly spicy and a little smoky — and wonderfully crunchy thanks to the cabbage slaw.Lastly, some homemade chile-chocolate ice cream!Not only is Tracee an impressive cook, but she’s also a talented singer/songwriter. Check out her music here!
Happy listening and have a lovely weekend
