Two Sesame Rye Ryvita crackers spread with Tahini Hummus and sliced, salted, and peppered tomatoes. Drizzle with good olive oil and enjoy with a tall glass of water (or if you don't have a Dr. Gooch of your own, a cup of milk should suffice).
Besides all the running, I can always tell when I'm training for a marathon (don't let me fool you, I've only done this once before). When I first get out of bed after a night's sleep my feet tingle. I have more energy, my complexion improves, and my appetite increases. My time becomes hyper managed because it takes several hours out of my days to fit in the runs I need during the week. My mind is clearer, the house seems cleaner, and I swear the kids are cuter. Dr. Gooch is definitely sexier and I can glimpse World Peace on the horizon.
And now that the weather is GORGEOUS, there's really no limit to the benefits of training.
