WIAW: Long Run Day

This edition of WIAW (thanks to Jen!) is a special Long Run edition of WIAW. Below are all my meals/snacks/etc. from Sunday, when I kicked 20.5 miles in the junk.

Unpictured... to be fair, I didn't decided to capture this day's eats for WIAW until I was actually running my long run. Oh well. I feel like you know what 1/2 an English Muffin with a little peanut butter looks like. I know that's not much before a 20 miler... but, I just don't have the stomach for it knowing I have a run. It works for me.
Yup... missed this pic too. Hey! I was RUNNING. Anyway-- I had 1 pack of Strawberry Gu Chomps. I don't really have a favorite go-to fuel source for running. Sometimes Gu's, sometimes Chomps, sometimes ShotBlocks, sometimes SportsBeans. Whatever. I'm easy to please mid-run.
Small skinny iced vanilla latte. Delicious. Tasted even better because I had a coupon so it was FREE!
The Hubs and I walked to Brothers Bar and Grill for lunch. This salad is DELICIOUS. I'm obsessed with it. Add grilled chicken, leave out the dried cranberries. Dressing on the side. Light on the blue cheese crumbles. Yes, waiters love me. Yes, it was worth the complicated order. I devoured this beast with about 4 glasses of water. SO good.
FRO-YO!! The Hubs and I walked there... so, I feel like the calories don't count, right??? :) Oh, like I care. It was AMAZING. Cookies and cream fro yo with M&Ms, Reese PB Cups, hot fudge and whipped cream. YUUUUUM.
A Meagan-staple. Brown rice with red/orange/yellow peppers and onions sauteed in TJ's peanut dressing, soy sauce, and siracha. LOVE it. Could (and do) eat it at least once a week.
Dessert 1:
This stuff is SO good. I only had a few spoonfuls. I swear. Less than a serving. But, I had to force the Hubs to take it away from me or I could have eaten the entire pint without even noticing.
Dessert 2:
{Unpictured b/c I suck} 5 marshmallows with a spoonful of PB and some chocolate chips. Sounds weird, but I promise it's amazingly good. Don't knock it til you go out and try it. Really. Go try it. Right now. You'll thank me.
And, that was it. I could have eaten WAY more, but I try to keep it a little under control on LR days because I know I'm the MOST hungry the day after a LR. Let's not go there today. :)
