The half marathon was a great experience and well some of you may be wondering what did I eat? I think the question is what didn't I eat :-) The night before I indulged and my running friends and I had dinner out. I splurged and had chicken liver pate with some amazing bread for an appetizer and for an entree of salmon w broccollini (I didn't touch the potatoes on my plate) and drank water. For snacks I packed some healthy blonde brownies ( a Jillian Michael's recipe I'll post another time), bananas and I purchased some raspberries and plain greek yogurt for breakfast the morning of the race. For the most part I did really well until I starting eating the blondies (they were healthy and packed with protein and complex carbs but your not supposed to eat several at a time). A small square 1 1/2" - 2" was approximately 200 calories and I ate more than one :-). During the race I had two packets of Gu for a little bit of energy along with lots of water.
