I am feeling pretty good after yesterday’s long long run. I woke up this morning with a little bit of soreness in my quads (which only bothers me when I’m going up or down stairs) and my back is sore. I’m glad to report my hips, knees, ankles, and feet all feel fine. I’m going to give a lot of credit to that ice bath.
Speaking of which, when we went by the grocery store yesterday to get some bagged ice, Barry also picked up some treats. Among those treats were two Moon Pies to celebrate my 20 miler. Barry picked up two because obviously you can’t eat a Moon Pie by yourself.
Do you want to know a secret about Moon Pies? Warm them up in the microwave and then eat them with a fork. It will make them taste amazing. This wisdom is courtesy of my father-in-law.
I was trying to find TV coverage for the Ironman World Championships this weekend in Kona, but had no luck (I did later figure out there was live coverage online). I asked my dad to check his cable, since he gets more channels than we do. I received this hilarious picture message from him Friday afternoon:
Note the description on the right. Dad sent me this picture along with the message “I searched iron man. Is this what you were looking for?” I replied back “Nope, try again :)” Of course my dad did know that this was not what I was in search of, but sent it to me as a joke. Just thought I should mention that…
By the way, do you remember those stuffed dog toys I got for Hank and Scout recently?
Well, this is all that’s left of them now:
They like to pull all of the stuffing out of them and chew them up to a certain extent. Then they will carry whatever scraps are left around like the toys are their babies. Strange dogs. This is what they always do with stuffed toys, and is the reason Barry doesn’t like me to buy them for the dogs. But it makes them so happy!
Have you ever had a Moon Pie? Ever had one that had been warmed up in the microwave?
What are your Sunday plans?
