SDRNR Part III: The Celebration

If you missed it check out:

SDRNR Race Report Part I: Before the Marathon
SDRNR Race Report Part II: The RACE!

All weekend I had been saying how all I wanted after the race is some GOOD Mexican food and a giant Margarita! I actually never eat Mexican food when we go out, because I am always afraid of what might be in it. I also rarely get Margarita's because that’ how I gained 20 pounds in college, but I just ran 26.2  miles, so I didn’t care!!!

After taking a super fast shower and checking out of the Hostel, we picked up Derek and Meghann and met up with my Aunt and Uncle  at the Old Town Mexican CafĂ©.

There was a little bit of a wait when we arrived so we hit up the street for some homemade tortillas made right in front of us!

Fred’s is really good, and I just love me some warm and gooey tortillas!

In celebration of the marathon I began my meal with a Mango Margarita and a few chips and salsa!!

Derick and Meghann, aren’t they so cute!!! Look Meg’s has a halo over her head!!

For dinner I was super indecisive and finally decided to go with a wet Lobster burrito(minus the cheese). When they brought out my jaw dropped because it was the size of my forearm, seriously!

42

The burrito was actually a little bit of a let down for me, it was too salty for my taste, and the lobster was not that flavorful. Oh well I ate half and then Hubby gave me some bites of his chicken burrito, which was AMAZING!

I was so excited that I didn’t eat my whole meal because that left me with some room for dessert! Amanda and Meghann, had never had self serve ForYo, and here in CA it is a staple. On Saturday night we saw Yogurtland in Little Italy and we headed straight there so these ladies could have their first slef serve experience!!!

43

It’s pretty simple you grab a cup and fill it with a mix of any yogurt and topping you want and then pay for the ounce.

I of course sampled every flavor!!! I ended up getting 3 different kinds, Double Cookies and Cream, Vanilla Wafer Cookies n Cream & Peanut Butter fro-yo with Almond Slivers, Strawberries, Brownie Bites, and a little peanut butter cups.

44

We all sat around chatting with each other and our significant others about the race. It was so nice hearing them talk about their experience and being excited to already be ready for their next! After the Fro-Yo it was sadly time to say our good byes.

45

It was one of the most amazing racing weekends I have ever experienced, these ladies are truly amazing and beautiful inside and out! I am so glad that I got to do this race, and I can not wait to run again with Amanda in the Wild West Relay in August, and hope to do another race with Meghann in Florida one day!

Once again I want to thank Ashley and my blogger sponsors; Kristin, Melissa,Leslie,Sara,Jennifer,Monica,Lacey,Shannon,Danica, and Janetha for supporting me financially in this race, it meant the world to me!!!!

Excellent blog Bobbi. Thanks for sharing your journey on this marathon. I liked the tip you gave when going up the steep hill, to keep arms down, take shorter steps, and look down (I think that's what it was). There's a great hike trail at the base of Mt. Baldy in the Claremont Hills that has some steep areas that I have trouble on. After each mile I take a breather and look up. Seems the path keeps getting steeper and steeper. Frustrating. Great blog though. Enjoyed reading it.
