So, yeah. Carbs made their reappearance into the pre-race diet in the last 24 hours. I lurves my quinoa and my rice and my spaghetti. And I immediately felt better physically. But also gained about 2.5 pounds overnight, after having maintained a constant weight during Christmas, the subsequent vacation, and even during the marathon taper. How is it possible to eat one wafer thin mint weighing a mere ounce and balloon up more than a kilo.
OK, so that was an exaggeration. I had Chinese food.
And red beans and rice.
And Quinoa and black beans.
Next to the marathon expo to get my number and gorge on all the toys and trinkets, like a sugar-highed kid in a candy store.
