2009 Broad Street Run

I'm participating in my first distance run tomorrow morning at 8:30 sharp. The Broad Street Run is a 10 mile race starting at Central High School and ending in the Navy Yard down in South Philly. I'm carbo-loading tonight with a pasta dinner. I'm making whole wheat penne with zucchini, peppers, mushrooms and grilled chicken, as well as a loaf of garlic bread. I've been training for this thing for months, but the butterflies in my stomach have been aflutter all day today. I hope the carb-overload dinner will send me into an early and deep slumber and I will awake tomorrow ready to kick Broad Street's ass, in the rain.

As a reward, my friends at A Full Plate Cafe have invited me to brunch, complete with mimosas. Just what I'll need after a damp 10 mile run.

Wish me luck!
