The King Cake

I'm not trying to 'milk' the recovery from my marathon - BUT I like taking time off of running. LOVE it actually. I don't hate running by any means, but sometimes I just need a break :) Anyway, I ran for the first time on Thursday and felt great. So, we've made up. But I'm still waiting for a few toe nails to fall off. Next week - back at it full force since my first Tri of the season as in a MONTH! Bring on the wetsuit - I'm ready.

Big J tried to pick up a king cake for me last week on his way home for a two day visit. But since the Saints won, NOTHING was open. So I had to settle for one from Winn-Dixie. Which was still pretty darn good. Let me tell you about my love for the Kind Cake. I'm not a huge sweets person. Chocolate Cake? No thanks. Ice Cream? Umm. Nope. Candy bars? Pass along. But a KING CAKE with cream cheese filling? YES YES YES! I could sit town and eat the whole thing. Which I did. Ok, it took me two days. But it was AWESOME! Thank goodness they are only around a few weeks out of the year.




Speaking of Mardi Gras - that means that lent is right around the corner. Last year I gave up FACEBOOK AND WINE. Not so much this year. But I will give up wine. Well, overall liquor. I can do it.

Random picture:



This is my cutie brother with his 'South Butt' shirt. As you can tell it's a spoof of North Face, some kid in St. Louis decided to sell some of these fun shirts to make $$$ for college, and it took off. Well, the North Face is now suing him. Interesting. And the best part - is that a friend of mine's father is one of the top dogs for North Face. Needless to say, I give him a pretty hard time for suing a kid just trying to better his life :)

Since the Olympics have started - I'm going to have to start throwing out Olympic Hottie of the Post. And today's eye candy? Only the HOTTEST SKIER ever - Bode Miller. Yum!

I am also a huge fan of my post-race eating binges. I always ask the wifey to make an apple pie. Following any Ironman, this is my great post-race recovery supplement. Amen.

Glad you've made up with running and that king cake looks delish (as does Bode)!

You know what Bode and I have in common...... nothing I think, except he probably likes King cake.. that might be one.
