Last night the kiddos and I ran errands after work. This is something I do not like to do. After working all day I want to go home and get my run on. Then my day is complete.
But last night I had to get a few things for the house. The kids are going to spend the weekend with their grandparents while I race so I picked up a few things to make sure they had familiar items with them while I am gone.
While I was shopping I saw these.
and they saw me coming!
Of course they were NOT on my list but they called to me as I walked by pretending not to notice them.
They playfully reminded me that I have a BIG important long calorie-burning race on Saturday so I could indulge in a few less-than-healthy treats.
Oh, I tried to resist but in the end they came home with me.
I sat them in a bag of other race day after-the-event refueling items for my long drive home. Then I heard them again calling to me. They reminded me that I didn't want to risk eating something new after such an impressive physical demonstration of my utter amazingness and become ill thus ruining a wonderful day!
That sounded like great logic to me.
I ate them.
Not all but a lot.
And they liked it!
I'm not saying they made me but I think they strongly encouraged me.
So now you know.
Don't say you weren't warned!
(The things we do to keep our minds off the fact that the BIG race IS tomorrow morning!)
