Great tips, thank you! One of the things that kept me from doing the Vegas Half this year is the cost. I love Vegas, we could make a vacation out of it but the fee for the race is sooo high!

Quesadillas are one of our standard meals. It's quick, easy, really delicious! Adding black beans to them make them really filling too.

I love the Icy Hot roll-on stick. It works so great and my hands don't smell like icy hot for hours!

Taper days are hard for me too. I hate worrying whether I'll gain weight because I'm no longer exercising. To keep myself sane I stop counting calories for about 3 days before a race. It helps.

Sorry--my suggestion was chocolate milk. That's what I use a lot and it works great.

I just discovered your blog so forgive me if this doesn't apply....Do you take any medications? I lost 110 pounds and then last year I started taking Celexa. I took it for 10 months, did not change my eating habits (I'm a calorie counter) and I still worked out 5x a week. I gained 15 pounds!! Trust me, it was a shocker!

Baked ziti is one of my favorites!! I like doing whole wheat pasta the night before a race. Usually with a red sauce and some turkey meatballs or some kind of meat.

Good advice. When I first started running I thought running was "run as fast as you can." Um, not exactly correct!! I quickly learned I could run longer if I paced myself.
