The kettlecorn was part of the Whole Trade gift basket Whole Foods Market sent me a couple of weeks ago and I finally got around to opening it yesterday afternoon. I had a handful “just to taste” and found myself going back for several more handfuls because it was so delicious. Somehow I managed to walk away yesterday(I had a Yelp party to get to!), but there was nothing stopping me today. I finished off the bag this afternoon without a problem. That was some GOOD popcorn.  

Dinner tonight was lighter on the carbs than I would have liked (though I’d like to think I for my carb fill with the obscene amount of popcorn consumed 😉 ).

I used my previous “How to pack for a half ironman” post as a reference and created a checklist separated by sport.

I need to pick up a race belt at the expo, but besides that I think I’m ready to go. We leave for Miami in the morning!

Good Night !

When the lights go out [Sponsored]

October 26, 2012

Growing up in the hurricane state, my family was no stranger to severe storms, high winds, flooding, and lengthy power outages. I think the longest outage we had was my freshmen year of high school. Hurricane Floyd wreaked just enough havoc to take our power out for a solid week. Schools were canceled and we more »

Bring On The Carbs

October 26, 2012

When do you start carb loading for a race? I had a sports dietician tell me at a race expo once that you want to consume the majority of your carbs two days before any long endurance event. So if your race is on a Sunday, you would consume your larger meals on Friday, then more »
