Awww, shucks guys

My oh my!  You kids certainly know how to make a girl blush.  Thanks so much for all the flattering and totally unsolicited slightly invited compliments about my race โ€“ kidding!!  ๐Ÿ˜‰

I really enjoyed writing about the emotional side of this race.  Often times, it seems like the physical side of racing gets the spotlight, and I thought the mental aspect should take the forefront for a change.  For me, this is actually the more difficult part of running long distances, and something I am still working on (as evidenced by yesterdayโ€™s struggles).

Anyways.  After the race I was so exhausted I actually fell asleep on the bus ride back to Manhattan. 


Creature of habit. 


Coffee and carbs = frothy, breakfasty yummies.  This is my second (and last) DKB sin dawg.  I cried a bit on the inside knowing how little is left.

A bit later, Kyle got home and we set up shop on the couch watching football.  There is NO way Iโ€™d rather spend my Sunday.  The 49ers won, too!  Any other football lovers out there?  If yes, whoโ€™s your team? (Julie, you can ignore this question, since the answer is practically tattooed on your forehead blog). Or maybe you are a fan of college football?  Current students or alums, who are you rooting for?  Yesterday was a HUGE day in the PAC-10 and my Bruins pulled off a win, too, so no complaints on my end.


I think Iโ€™m on batch #293 of tofummus.  Yeah, I said it.


Tofu, hummus, carrots, and spinach, all in a WW pita. 

After lunch we walked to the park and did some (window) shopping on the way โ€“ but by 4, my energy was waning so we headed home.


I rocked a senior citizen dinner (at 5 pm) of Nateโ€™s meatless meatballs (poor Nate โ€“ not exactly the best reputationโ€ฆ).  After seeing my homies enjoying the meatless balls so thoroughly lately, I knew I HAD to partake (also itโ€™s fun to say dirty words).  Good nutritionals.  No further comment your honorโ€ฆ

Step 1: Heat balls


Step 2: Mix with seasoned tomato chunks.


Step 3: Line pita with plain greek yogurt and stuff the bejeezus out of them with Italian lovin.


Step 4: Get your grub on :O


Too many meat/ball/mouth jokes flooding my brain!  K?  A little help here?

My food coma set in hard core, so I made like Perez and stalked celebs watched the Emmyโ€™s.


With a bowl of melon for dessert (I could never elope).  Sorry for my random mood.  My lame-o humor may only suit me, but thatโ€™s cool.

    Channeling Damien from Mean Girls: Say balls again. Balls.

  5. The Foodie Diaries

    Ah I am the worst mean girls fan ever. He definitely said, “Say crack again.” Not balls. Guess we know where my mind is…

    “My lame-o humor may only suit me, but thatโ€™s cool.”

    Ummm hey, that’s how I feel about my humor in my posts. I love you humor girl, keep it up!

    THat DKB thing…you’re really lucky you are tolerant to gluten. Because I am not boo-hoo and so there has been no bread in my life for 3+ years. Or soy or dairy. But when I see bread like that it just makes me wanna….feel happy for who ever got to munch it all down ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s you in this case. Yum!!!

  11. Katie

    You always make me laugh aloud. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Steph

    Wow! Tofummus looks delicious!

  13. broccolihut

    Adding tofummus to my to-do list…

  14. Jessica (jesslikesithot)

    Aw Elise, just caught up on your last post….i’m so sorry that you had to deal with so much stress right before the race! It’s totally natural, but i’m glad you stuck with it and ended up having a fab time, and doing a damnnnnn good job! ๐Ÿ™‚

    And umm, let me also just say that your TOFUMMUS needs to be in my belly, asap. I really need to try it, like…NEED! And, I really want to try that italian pita sandwich-thang out, it looks delishhhh!!

  15. devan

    hahaha i love your melon comment!
    that tofu hummus is amazing! i have made two batches already. ๐Ÿ˜€

  16. The Voracious Vegan

    YUM! You have such great food. That hummus wrap looks delicious, so fresh and tasty!

  17. ksgoodeats

    So, Nate’s balls are good? I’ve only personally been able to taste TJs balls. It’s good to know there’s a worthy replacement incase I’m out and TJ is just too far away to feed my desire.

    You know I’ve got your back on the TWSS inappropriateness. I was apparently born with this ability – some people are born to become the President, I’m born to throw out ball jokes. It’s my claim to fame in life.


  18. Peanut Butter Bliss

    ahh meatless meatballs are pretty much AMAZING ๐Ÿ˜€
    totally loving the carby breakfast too ๐Ÿ™‚ coffee completes every breakkie.

  19. Courtney

    Mmmm…you HAVE to add nutritional yeast to your next batch of hummus! Seriously–add a tablespoon or two…you will die and go to heaven for a second when it hits your taste buds ๐Ÿ™‚

    Your humor works for me…does that mean I am lame too?! Well, we already know the answer to that, so never mind…!


  20. ellie

    Yay tofummus ๐Ÿ˜€

    12 dayz… ๐Ÿ˜€

  21. adrianna

    balls in pockets look amazing.

    PITTSBURGH STEELERS baby! have been since fetus days, and will be til i die. wootwoot to 6 rings ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. Missy Maintains

    I need those meatballs! They look so good. I am a fan of the Eagles still even though I live in NY now!

  23. lowandbhold

    Haha, you’re hilarious. Love the tofummus. I need to get those balls in my mouth ASAP.

    I’m a college fb fan, Go Oklahoma Sooners ๐Ÿ˜‰

    When I watch NFL I tend to root for the Vikings or the Redskins. But I’ve never been able to get that into it since I lived in a state my whole life that doesn’t have a pro team.

    Glad your teams did well!

  24. homegirlcaneat

    OH YAY for all the balls action in this post! TWSS #1

    WOOPWOOP I do love football but I never really watch it because I forget about it and want someone to watch it with me. Soooo I think this would be grand if I went next door to the cute neighbors and watched it with them ๐Ÿ˜€

    YAY 49NERS



  25. Angharad (Eating for England)

    The meatless balls sound so good!! Meaty bally goodness! There, I said it!!

  26. brandi

    i think you can never say meat or balls too many times, right?

    I LOVE college football. I love fall, mainly because I get to sit on my butt from noon til midnight on Saturdays ๐Ÿ™‚ Is that bad?

  27. ethel

    YES! I share in the Bruin glory and cheered even louder for that SC loss against U Dub! Woot woot!

  28. Jenna

    can you say YUMMY?! omg your wrap w/ hummus looks delish as well as your meatball wrap!!

  29. snackface

    Oh. my. gawd. I am so sorry I’m such an ass and just caught up on your incredible race! I can understand not wanting to run a)that early and b)that long, so you already have a fan here. But that mile time???!!!!! YOU BOSSY.

    And thank you for the ball shoutout. It means the world to me.

    And I LOVE your random mood. Ok, we just know I love you. Can’t help it.

  30. Nellie

    First of all, a huge thank you for your super sweet comment on my blog! I’ve been blog stalking you for a while and let’s just say I’m a bit obsessed! You single handedly convinced me to cook chickpeas from scratch and I couldn’t be happier about that decision… Yum!

    Next order of biz, congrats on your half! You are a running machine and I’m jealous to say the least!

    You are totally right, RR was super nice, just as she is on tv! I definitely an RR convert as well.

    I’m ashamed to say I fell off the Curb Your Enthusiasm wagon. I used to watch is on the regular, but didn’t have hbo at school. I will def have to add it to my dvr list! (As if I don’t already watch enough tv. Curse you Bravo for being amazing!)

  31. glidingcalm

    That pita looks amazing!!! and I totally need to try those meatless meatballs!!

    HAPPY WEDNESDAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  32. ~Jessica~

    I meant to comment on your last post but Postgraduate shenanigans at University meant that I had no time for sleep, let alone commenting…

    Better late than never perhaps? Anyway, your half marathon time simply astounded me. I ran the distance this morning in 1:53:00 and for you to finish in the time you did, with a 3am wake up call and all of the hardships you had to endure pre-race, was nothing short of astounding. I admire you more than words can express. You are an amazing athlete and an amazing person.

    My biggest battle with running is always psychological too…so many negative thoughts can cram themselves into a two hour time-span. If you ever find the secret to banishing them then I’d love to hear it!


  33. Diana (Soap & Chocolate)

    Congrats on your race! Amazing.

    VERY MUCH covet the sin dawg.

    Haha, cant…elope…I GET IT!

  34. elise

    i think that’s the best part about it!

  35. elise

    i cant even imagine…for a while i thought i might be allergic to gluten…i would seriously cry (much like when i realized i couldnt tolerate most dairy products). ill keep chowing down on the gluten-y goodness for the both of us ๐Ÿ˜€

  36. elise

    we’re in that boat together. lame and fabulous!
