I'm surprised I made it. I think I cried a little on mile six, thought about flagging a car down and hitching a ride back to mi casa.
But I didn't. I kept going.
It was also at mile six that I started to think about what I was going to eat for breakfast when I got back to mi casa. Food pushed me through those last two miles.
When I got back to the house, I threw myself across the bed where my sleeping husband lay; I announced loudly that I had made it and that I really really REALLY needed some food. I thought for sure he would leap up and do something about this. But there was no leaping, only a congratulatory grunt and a roll over. Unfortunately, my running victory did not turn him into a morning person.
I figured I was on my own and went on the hunt for some breakfast food.
What I made, I've made before. And I've shared it here before. But I'm going to share it again. Why? Because there's ham involved now. Why? Because I'm trying to up the protein. Why? I don't know, it just felt right.
