In other news, it's National Peanut Butter Day! If you haven't heard, peanut butter is my absolute favorite food and I could easily eat an entire jar if left unattended. Anything made out of peanut butter (especially if chocolate is also involved) is delicious and wonderful. So to celebrate this day I will take one for the team and have peanut butter with every meal. Peanut butter in my oatmeal this morning made it all that more delicious.
In other deliciousness-related news, Runner's World came out with this article that is pretty much trying to ruin my life. They investigate if having a beer after a run (such as that which occurs at many races) hinders your performance or not. The celebratory beer (at 10 in the morning, no less) is the reason half the runners get up at the crack of dawn to run races! Why take that joy away from them? Lucky for me, females in the study (with a tiny sample size of 10) actually performed BETTER after having a celebratory beer (poor men, they performed worse). So cheers to that! But no more research Runner's World, please, in case you find conflicting evidence.
|The best beer in America. If only I could buy JUST this and not the dumb sampler pack. If you haven't had it, get some.|
Yesterday I swam 2,500 yards (50 laps). I didn't drown (though there was gasping and flailing, as usual), so it was fairly uneventful. I hate how I smell like a pool the rest of the day even if I take a shower after swimming.
|This is disgusting. But funny at the same time.|
Has anyone figured out how NOT to smell like a pool after swimming? I would greatly like to learn your tactics. Please share. And have you tried Blue Moon Spiced Amber Ale yet?!
