Race Day For The Whole Fam

by HEAB on October 2, 2010

Chris and I both participated in the Shelby Bottoms Boogie this morning. CD placed first overall in the 15K (9.3 miles) averaging 5:38 per mile, and I walked the 5K (3.1 miles), averaging 15:46 per mile. I didn’t win, but nor did I finish last. The HEABlet placed first in the -6 weeks to 0 age group category…A good race day had by all! :)


CD likes to eat pizza the last couple of days before any race and had bought himself a couple of individual pepperoni pizzas for dinner on Thursday and Friday nights. Last night, after smelling his pizza cooking, I decided I wanted some too. So, I set about making my own based on ingredients we had on hand, and since today is grocery shopping day, the pickings were slim.

For my crust, I made a flourless crepe with 1 whole egg, 2 egg whites, and 1/4 tsp baking powder. Toppings included tomato paste thinned with water, Italian seasonings, and goat cheese all melted under the broiler. My “pizza” was actually quite tasty…all it needed was a little fresh basil or pesto sauce. Love pesto on my pizza!


After dinner, I fixed myself the usual. I’ve found that if I eat 1/2 cup oat bran cooked with water and topped with nut butter before going to bed, I don’t wake up hungry in the middle of the night, and oat bran seems to be the only thing that works. Rolled oats don’t quite do it for me.


Oat bran with homemade chocolate coconut butter and Naturally Nutty cinnamon cashew butter…slept like a baby! :)

It’s beautiful here in Nashville today, and I can’t wait to get outside this afternoon. However, first I have a fun lunch date with a HEAB reader. See you guys tomorrow for Pancake Sunday. How do you plan to celebrate?
