A 10 miler and FESTIVAL time! Again!
Our little town has more festivals than most. I am pretty sure of it. That is why I love living here though.
This one is the Kansas Sampler festival. It is a traveling festival that goes around the state and show cases all the cities in Kansas and what they have to offer. There is a fee to get in but the food is amazing and there is tons to see and do. Here is a recap of last year's festival. I am really sad it is leaving to go to the new location next year.
Shhh! Don't tell him it is buffalo meat and not beef. I actually had a homemade brat but tried the burger and it was AMAZING! I thought buffalo would be dry and rangy tasting, but it was juicy and yummy! I am sure they had to add some sort of fat to it to make a good burger.
As last year, the goats were a huge hit, especially the baby goats. This little guy LOVED andrew and tried to eat not only mine but his hair.
Since I had run a 10 mile long run prior to us going, I kind of let myself eat sort of badly. I had a brat for lunch and a cookie for desert ,that was divine. It was a cross between a cookie and a scone in texture and dough, and had chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips and walnuts. I did share with andrew, but the majority of it went in my belly:) I also took a few sips of Tony's fresh squeezed limeade, that probably had a ton of sugar in it, AND, i had frozen strawberries and bananas on a stick that were drizzled with chocolate. Oh well, we probably won't go down tomorrow and i had 2 K calories left after my run. Not trying to beat myself up too bad about my poor eating choices pretty much all day.
I have another easy week and then Running with the Cows next weekend! Mom is coming up mid week and we are going to a bra fitting/fashion show thursday night. Then Friday we are off to packet pick up and the race. I talked her into the 5 K so she gets a shirt and swag as well. So excited to finish my second year of the Heartland series!
