California International Marathon 2012: Epic Effusions
Epic Coaster of a Medal
This will no doubt be just another of the hundreds of blogposts that will be filed about this day, but I need to get this down since: CIM 2012 was my first-ever marathon.2012 will be remembered as the year of the epic rainstorm.
Warning. This is waaay too long for to be of interest to anyone except myself, really, but - for what it's worth…
On Friday, though I was still checking the weather every couple of hours, hoping beyond hope for some change, I was pretty much resigned. Yes folks, all indicators pointed to a deluge of not-insignificant proportions in the beginning, middle and most likely by the end of the marathon.
- A bowl of oatmeal w/ brown sugar and walnuts in the morning
- A bowl of ramen with lots of veggies and a minimum amount of protein for lunch
- Risotto and linguine for dinner, from Palermo’s Ristorante in Elk Grove (more on that in another post.)
