My new favorite thing

Yesterday I was running late getting into work so rather than parking and taking the train into town I decided to drive downtown and park. The good news was it only took me 20 minutes to get downtown (so yay, I wasn't late anymore), the bad news was it cost me $17 to park. Wow. After work I stopped by the hospital to see Avery again. It was great to have some quality time with her, plus it was also really nice to just sit down and chat with my sister-in-law. Leaving the hospital I knew I had 5 or 6 miles on tap, but somehow I buckled to the thought of taking a rest day and grabbing Thai food instead. So tonight I'll get my mileage in before BBC...
I bought a couple of Larabars the last time I was at Mountain Equipment Co-op stocking up on Sharkies and Sport Beans. These are definitely my new favorite snack bars. You can count the number of ingredients on one hand and they taste terrific. So far the Cherry Pie and the Lemon Zest bars are my favorites, although the Chocolate Coconut was pretty good too. I highly recommend giving them a shot.

It's so funny you mention Larabars, because I picked my first one up last night! Ginger Snap, and man, it was *tasty*. I'm also thrilled about the lack of processing and refined ingredients. It's so hard to find honestly good food that hasn't been through the ringer three or four times before it gets to you.

Just a little over 2 months until ToT!!

I got some of those things in my 3rd place AG goodie bag a while ago. I have to admit, it was a bit strange to eat these things, but they were good.

As for Disney- We shall get together and hobble around. Shoot me an email and we can talk more. I have a feeling that you'll be in better shape than I will. angryrunner [at]gmail.com
