Here you go.
I got the nicest piece of mail from my bestestest running friend, Rad, who was also running her third marathon on May 1. Running twins, basically.
After not eating candy the whole week of the race, it was only a matter of time before those two pieces of sugary goodness accidentally fell into my mouth.A short road trip down to Monterey with RoadBunner, were we met up with the other ladies to devour pizza and pasta (and for Tara and me, a.k.a. "the smart ones"), beer.
Cheese-less Japanese eggplant pizza & Blue Moon apparently does the body good.We crashed out way too early to catch some pimp buses down to the start line of the marathon.
Tara & PageMe & Susan (Susan, in town from NYC, finished 4th female at Big Sur! I was lucky enough to run with her again while she was vacationing in San Francisco after the marathon. Check out her post on our Golden Gate Bridge adventure here.)
We huddled outside in the cold, waiting for the race to start.Until we learned that people were waiting inside a warm & cozy Safeway.
And had some celebratory pretzels with our celebratory beers.And had some celebratory veggie burgers with our celebratory beer & pretzels.
And then some psycho birds ate our leftovers......while we were trying to take this photo at Cannery Row.Even though we were all exhausted after the race & wanted to go to sleep...
The next morning we were still hungry. We ate like queens at the Old Monterey Cafe.A scenic roadtrip home with RoadBunner & Susan.
