Hi, guys! Just a quick blog post because I need to get to sleep soon since I have an early start tomorrow morning. (My alarm is set for 5:31 AM.) Oooooh, man, I hope I’m ready for this race!
Before leaving for the airport, I ate breakfast at home, which was a Sweet Breakfast Scramble with a big scoop of peanut butter. Best breakfast ever.
On the drive to the airport, Mal and I stopped by Marylou’s for a couple of iced coffees. I went with a decaf Hawaiian Chocolate Nut with milk. Holy yum X 10! I didn’t want to waste a single sip of it, so I ended up chugging it before going through security at the airport.
My flight landed in DC around lunchtime, so Katie picked me up from the airport and then we headed to brunch at Pacifico Cantina.
As soon as I walked into the restaurant, the special of the day caught my eye.
I wouldn’t typically think to pair shrimp and mushrooms together in an omelet, but it was a surprisingly delicious flavor combination.
After lunch, Katie and I walked over to the race expo at the Armory.
It was later in the afternoon by the time we got there, so the crowds weren’t bad and we picked up our bibs and shirts (long sleeve – woo!) in no time at all.
Then, we wandered around for a little while and did some shopping.
But I only bought a vanilla bean GU for tomorrow.
After our time at the expo, Katie and I walked back to her condo and relaxed for awhile before heading out again to rent a DVD and buy groceries to make dinner. (We rented The Lucky One, which was pretty terrible, but I thoroughly enjoyed watching Zac Efron in it. He’s just a tad attractive.)
Katie and I cooked a fabulous dinner tonight: baked chicken with sautéed Brussels sprouts and roasted potatoes with fresh Rosemary.
And I went back for a second serving of potatoes—yay, carb-loading!
Now I’m heading straight to bed. Ten miles in the morning! AHHHH! Wish me luck!
