Exciting Mail! (11.08.2008)

It was SO cool to come home this afternoon and find some very exciting mail waiting for me. First, Larabar sent me their new bars for kids - JamFrakas - one of each flavor. This was all because of Megan over at Megan's Munchies! After she featured them on her blog, the kind folks at larabar decided to send all who commented about them on Megan's post their own to try! I cant wait to sample these!And then, Foodbuzz sent me MiniCards with my Name and blog address on them! Each little card has a bright picture of some type of food on the back. I feel official!My pre-race day breakfast was whole wheat eggos with Greek yogurt, sliced bananas, cinnamon, and maple syrup. I savored every last bite of this filling breakfast.Also grabbed a Sumatra blend coffee from High Grounds. Mixed in lots of skim milk and 1 packet of sugar in the raw. I found my new coffee - the Sumatra blend is the best tasting so far.After watching my nephew's football game, I grabbed a Buon Giorno plain cheese pizza and brought it home for Kevin and I. (No picture, but the two slices I had tasted great!) Maybe I shouldn't have done the pizza thing before my race tomorrow, but we shall see if it hurts or helps me!

Later this afternoon, Kevin and I split a chocolate chip Zbar while out running errands. I think the peanut butter flavor is my favorite, but this one was pretty good.Just got back from a walk in the park with Oscar - it is a beautiful day outside today. It's looking like tomorrow is going to be just as nice, only cooler, which should be great running weather!

Tonight's dinner is going to be whole wheat cheese ravioli with turkey meatballs and marinara. Got some salad and bread to go with. Simple pre-race dinner! Keeping it basic for my stomach's sake - it has enough going on with the pre-race jitters!

Hope everyone is enjoying their saturday!
