Day 19

raw grain-free granola & fruit
big honkin' salad
chocolate mousse

Lake Tahoe Trifecta (3 half marathons in 3 days)

So many hills
Look it's a boat!
The elevation was so high that we could see snow
This sign says it all

The hills were tough but the view was worth it

First half marathon..done

13.1 miles done, 26.2 more to go.

The race started at Emerald Bay...

This photo doesn't do it justice, the views were fantastic. The first 3 miles were a brutal downhill, then the course turned onto a bike path. And finished in town.

Bob fusses at me for doing minimal race prep. I usually don't look at race course details, I prefer to be surprised. That's also the case for aid stations and port-a-potties. I figure they'll be on the course somewhere, I'll get to them eventually.

OK, I admit it, I should have read the final instructions. Then I would have known about the non-existent port-a-lets and water only available at mile 10. I knew something was up when I was the only one at the start without a water bottle.

Luckily, after about 2 hours, I came upon a 7-11. I bought a water and used their restroom, all was right with the world again.

Tomorrow I'm going to carry some water, I'm still stumped about the bathroom situation. Maybe I'll stuff some toilet paper in my hat and hope for the best.

Day 11

yogurt & raspberries
sashimi, pineapple & kale
chocolate truffle
salad & yam
White Lion bakery cookies

White Lion Baking Company

These baked goods are the best!
If you're giving up grains but still want dessert, order stuff from White Lion Baking Company. They're the best primal desserts I've ever eaten.

I ordered cookies, muffins and cinnamon rolls. They're made from almond flour and use honey as the sweetener. I love them! I have a serious sweet tooth, although I enjoy raw desserts, they sometimes seem too heavy. I miss the flour-y baked desserts that I would eat on a daily basis, in my wheat-filled days. The White Lion Bakery fills the void, their desserts don't seem as if you're making a sacrifice.

I'm placing another order in a week or so. Their website is
