That's a lotta pasta

Hubby is running his very first 20-miler tomorrow and, as illustrated in the following photos, he takes his carbo-loading very seriously.

That would be a fruit bowl.



Getting there...



And he did it. *burrrrrrrp*





As for me, I'll be heading out for 28K/~17mi tomorrow morning, quite possibly in rain and thunderstorms. We're taking another 'scenic' (read: hilly) route in the country so I'll be thinking of you SFM girls.



I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

LMAO, where'd he put it all! Until you mentioned it was a fruit bowl, it looked like a regular sized bowl! Wish him luck, but I bet he'll rock that 20 miler, as you will the 28k! :) You are both awesome! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

I had the same thought as Mel - he's too tiny to eat all of that!

Good luck on the long runs :)

That bowl of pasta is incredible. I bet he either completely smoked the 20miler or was so full he passed out :)
