I ran the Fredericksburg Wildflower 10k on Saturday. I haven’t been running much since February and it was really humid, so I was super surprised that I PRed by a minute. Oh that’s right. I didn’t PR because I ran over a quarter mile in the wrong direction instead. But I’ll tell you about that later.
First, I want to tell you about the shenanigans that occurred after the race and through Sunday. To say I’ve been eating badly would be putting it mildly. Just when I was so full that I couldn’t possibly eat another bite, I did. My stomach is currently in a full-on revolt with my body and I never want to see a piece of clothing with a button or zipper again.
1. German Reuben, German potato salad, and red cabbage from Winslow’s Restaurant in Fredericksburg
I noticed yesterday that Winslow’s was completely slammed on Urban Spoon but I thought everything was really good. Maybe I just have taste buds with low standards.
2. Peach cobbler
More like peach pie. Or piebbler. (new dessert!) I was annoyed that it didn’t come with ice cream. Who serves piebbler without ice cream? Of course, I ordered some and it was almost the same price as the pie. I’ll spare you the ice cream picture, just know that I was full and didn’t need it.
3. Ombre cake from The Pink Pig
This is vanilla cake with vanilla frosting and a fancy name. I ate it about an hour after the piebbler. With my fingers. In the car. The frosting wasn’t even good. I still ate it all. Bad frosting is better than no frosting.
4. Pink pig frosted cookie
I ate that cookie shortly after the cake. I still wasn’t hungry and I may have been slipping into a diabetic coma. It was a disappointing cookie. We were told that we had to check The Pink Pig out and I wasn’t really impressed. I still ate it all. No cookie left behind.
5. Gummy pigs
I wanted to die at this point. My teeth felt like little pieces of sugary chalk but I still had to try them.
6. Bacon cheeseburger from Reunion Grille in Austin
It doesn’t look like much but that was a great burger. I really did consider getting a salad for a good 10 minutes, so I think that counts for something.
7. Bloody Mary bar at Z’Tejas
A BLOODY MARY BAR. What won’t these kids think of next? The Bloody Marys were four bucks each and had Grey Goose vodka. Pretty much heaven.
8. Tableside guacamole with tortilla chips
This guacamole was amazing. I made yummy noises while I was eating it was so good. I ate about 75% of it and was so full afterwards that I didn’t even want the meal I ordered. But I’m sure you know where this is going…
9. Barbacoa beef breakfast enchiladas
I only ate the enchilada part because they messed up my egg order. I don’t do eggs over easy. Runny yolks gross me out. The part that I did eat was amazing.
10. Fresh baked apple muffin with butter
So good. I don’t even like butter that much but somehow it made it’s way all over that muffin. I really buttered my muffin. < — couldn’t help it
I drink almost anything. Alcohol is delicious.
I think I’ve forgotten what it’s like to feel hungry. I have been uncomfortably full for 48 hours now. Texas might be killing me.
