Still time to get a short stack

LizaLiza

I hope you all had a wonderful National Pancake Day.  There’s still time to get to IHOP before 10pm for free pancakes if you haven’t had your fill.  When I ran rescue in Virginia Beach, I’d start most shifts at a greasy spoon diner down on the oceanfront eating a short stack.  There was a group of older men who held court at the diner early each morning, and, more often than not, they’d pick up my pancake tab.  Ah, the good old days.

So I found Asa scaling the chain link fence in our backyard today.  The rascal had one leg over the top and looked at me with a perfect “hand in the cookie jar” expression when I came around the corner.  We discussed “falling to your death,” but I’m doubtful it took. And Eliot looked almost proud when I told him.  Climbers and their progeny.

Oh, and apparently the Tiger Mom’s a runner.  Here’s the Runner’s World article.  I LOVE the stretching picture.

Food log: (I’m still working on formatting this.  Today it’s just a list of ingredients because if I take too much more time writing you won’t be able to get to IHOP.)

    Ah, climbing fences. It brings back such great memories of my youth. That kid is all boy. I can teach Asa some fence climbing techniques. I’m sure Eliot knows many more than I do. But, would he be able to climb a fence in a full length leg cast? As my friend Vincent did when we were 12!

    I often stretch my armpits before a run. That way, they don’t cramp.

    Did you eat immediately after your run?

      Laughing about the armpits.
      And I did have some GU Recovery Brew directly afterwards. Got chopped out of the picture by accident.

    Yup. Looking forward to being on the beautiful course — not so much the running of 50 miles.

      100k and 50 mile champion… Guess you’ll have to run Burning river for the triple crown.
