Fueling.

I have a big, scary run tomorrow.  I’m not writing about it or talking about it because I am sick with nerves.  I will be happy to share more when it is over, if I am still alive!  In the meantime, I’m trying to stay calm and do lots of EATING, my favorite! 

Last night’s dinner didn’t have a lot of color, but it sure had a lot of flavor…

Maple glazed tofu.  Inspired by this recipe, but with a few of my own substitutions.

Honey Mustard Whipped Sweet Potatoes.  Deeeeelicious!  Recipe found here, and pretty much followed to the tee.  Only change was adding a little milk in the food processor.

Baked cinnamon apples.  Casey actually made these, when I got busy worrying about the other two dishes.  No recipe – I believe he used brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a small splash of vanilla.  Let them just crunchy enough to still have a great texture.

My gigantic plate of food.  Casey and I were saying last night how I’m kind of surprised that no one has ever commented on how much food I eat.  Healthy eating = gigantic portions, which is a win win in my book.  Fuel in my belly and a good night’s sleep last night.  Off to work all day long and then get to bed early for tomorrow’s run.  A kiss goodbye and I’m off…

Race post tomorrow, if I survive it.  If not, I’ll have Casey do a guest post and give you all the details.  Here goes nothing…
