Pre-Marathon Dinner

I loaded some pictures from the Marathon up on the computer so I’ll share a couple here.

 

Running in Manayunk--pretty much the death of me.

Family afterwards

Christina & I

Todd & I after the race

Getting ready to take off--Tina's looking a little cold or something!

I’m still waiting for them to post the official pictures from the marathon…we’ll have to see if there are any funny ones.  I remember making a painful face and looking up and seeing a camera…so let’s hope that moment wasn’t caught! 

To skip back a little, Saturday night before the marathon, my sister & I made a great dinner with even greater bread.

The bread was from DiBruno Bros…Raisin Walnut

Yum--we devoured this loaf.

Roasted Chicken Breasts with lemon and a smoky seasoning

Sauteed string beans, garlic, & carrots…

…and last but not least…SWEET POTATO FRIES

This was a perfect meal.  So delicious & great fuel!  I still can’t believe that we ran a marathon yesterday.  Pretty crazy.  I never would have thought that I would ever run a marathon & now I have ran 2 and I’m signed up for another.  Crazy.  I was thinking about how much pain I went through yesterday and how much I wanted to quit during the last few miles…yet I still had an absolute blast and can’t wait to do it again.  It’s really a weird thing.

Tonight I made an awesome pasta dish…recipe to come soon!
