Carbo Loading Redefined
We are in New Haven. Lara, Sarah, Susie and I drove down a little early Sunday. We practiced the best route into the city for tomorrow morning. We found the best parking places. We know where to meet in the morning and where to slug down beers after the race. We registered. We (Susie) shopped. And we ate. Oh, did we eat. Modern Apizza was a hot spot for pasta hounds tonight. Little did anyone else know what was on the dessert menu. Sarah's mom's famous recipe cookies, Jon's never ending truffles and Dianna's amazing awesome cheesecake. I'm glad I saved room for all that (ha!). I am now 10 pounds heavier than I was after my last long run. It better disappear over night or I'll be dragging in the morning.
It was great to see "old friends" (Sarah and Dianna) and meet friends (Jon and Lara) that now have real 3-D faces besides all their great compositions. It was definitely worth the trip north and even beat out another day at the beach in Rhode Island. I mean, how often can something as sweet as this happen?
