emily: chicago spring half marathon edition

May 16, 2010 - .  

oatmeal with banana and soymilk

banana, watermelon, two tortillas with hot sauce at the post-race picnic

vegan breakfast burrito (seitan chorizo, potato, avocado, lettuce, green salsa, pico de gallo, i forget what else), sides of black beans and rice, and 2/3 of a peanut butter and jelly fried pie (like an empanada) at handlebar

half a cowboy cookie from ‘vegan cookies invade your cookie jar’ (thanks mom!)

a little of every vegetarian dish at lalibela, which is my favorite ethiopian place in chicago because it’s byob and the owner, who is also the waiter, is okay with you ordering a little of everything and can make exactly the right amount to feed however many people there are; bell’s oberon (i miss you midwestern beer!); dogfish head 60 minute ipa; peanut butter brownies made by marcy

katherine, i am totally in for running a marathon in a few years! i’ll start training.

    how did the race go? it seemed so far away when we visited you! I can’t imagine running more than 2 miles.


    emily's reply:

    it went really well, thanks for asking! it was a little disorganized and i was in line for the porta-potties when it started, but other than starting about 8 minutes late everything went smoothly and i even beat my goal time of 10 mins per mile!
