Greek Yogurt and Sore Legs

I'd like to start by saying that greek yogurt is my favorite food of the moment.  It is really amazing that I enjoy something healthy and I do not wreck it by putting a ton of non-healthy things in it.

My favorite flavor is vanilla and my favorite toppings are blueberries and a pinch or two of granola.  I am so in love with this stuff that I tear through the grocery store to see if it is still in stock every time.  I hate regular yogurt, it is ironic I love the greek style.  This stuff packs 22g of protein per serving!  Holy crap!  I love you greek yogurt.

Speaking of food, the day after my long runs I am a food monster.

This is actually me eating a bagel, banana and drinking a lemonade in the midst of my run haha-woops!  My hunger seems to continue a day or two afterward also.  Yesterday in class after my 3rd bag of food, the guy laughs and says to me, "Hungry much?"  OMG now I am the circus freak.  "Lady who can eat 100lbs. of food at Eastern Michigan University..."

My legs felt incredibly okay the days after my 18 miles on Sunday.  I guess now they have decided to become sore?  DOMS-perhaps-delayed onset muscle soreness-but it seems this is a bit delayed considering it is Wednesday!  I think a 4 mile run I did last night with flash-err Erin was a little faster than I had anticipated and brought on the soreness.

Good luck to all Rev3 participants this upcoming weekend!

Good luck to everyone else racing as well!

And finally, I have been seeing a lot of inspirational videos from YouTube.  This is probably my favorite speech by an athlete of all time...
