Post-Race Partying

Once I got over my lame sauce feeling sorry for myself boo hooing I remembered I was on vacation and it was time to party.

We went back to the condo (thanks again Megan and Bryce for having us) and got ready.  Pretty sure I took a 30 minute HOT shower (sorry environment) to warm up my cold muscles after shivering for the last 2 hours.

We then headed to the best post race fuel ever.  Megan's little bro is sponsored by Cafe Rio for cycling and so we got the hookups.


I got the usual salad but with steak this time.  My body was yelling for some iron and lots of protein.


Pretty funny that even when traveling and a million new restaurants to go to I still choose Cafe Rio.  I don't think I could live if they ever went out of business, but I don't have to worry about that because I am pretty sure I keep them in business all on my own. Maybe I could get them to sponsor my blog.  I will be making some phone calls.

After lunch we went and got Billy new RUNNING shoes using the gift card I won at the race.

He got the Saucony Progrid Mirage.  They are awesome.  P.S.  He admitted that he likes running now:)


Don't worry he is not wearing capri's, they had him roll his pants up.

We may have spent a really long time talking to the running store people and before we knew was dinner time.

Megan is also a chef.  Yes, I know my friends are a trillion times cooler than me and now Billy thinks it is normal for wives to whip up AMAZING dinners for their husbands.   Give me a little credit, I am really good at pushing start on the microwave for his frozen burrito's and taquito's.


Pretty sure I could eat this meal for the rest of my life and be happy.  She used this RECIPE from Cooking Light for the chicken.  There was also real mashed potatoes, roasted asparagus, rolls and a spinach salad.


After dinner we talked for a while and then watched 6 episodes of Modern Family. Sounds like the perfect night to me.

Don't drool but this is what I was served for breakfast this morning.  That's it, I am officially moving in with them.  Waffle's topped with greek yogurt and fresh fruit.


Goodbye St. George, I love you.  I am a little mad at you for having perfect running temps and conditions today, you tease.


We are on our way home listening to Red Hot Chili Peppers and just passed by the Biggest Loser van?!?!  Jillian must be near by.....I will meet her one day.


Hope you are having a relaxing Sunday and THANK YOU so much for the sweet comments!  I can't wait to finally be able to read your blogs and catch up on your lives.....I feel like I have gone from talking to my best friends everyday and knowing exactly what is going on in your life to nothing.  Yes, I am Janae and I am obsessed with blogging.


Where did you grow up?

-I grew up in St. George, Utah but it has changed a lot since we moved.  It will always hold a special place in my heart.

Do you read blogs everyday?  How long have you been reading blogs?

-I have been reading blogs for probably 2.5 years.  It is a major part of my everyday life.

Favorite waffle toppings?

Fresh mango, strawberries, bananas and blueberries won my heart over this morning.

I've only been reading blogs for a few months now, but I love them! They are inspirational, and I love how supportive my blog friends are!

I love regular syrup on waffles. I know, I'm lamesauce, but hey. WHy mess with a good thing?!

I grew up in Jacksonville, FL and it is still my favorite place on Earth. There's just something about your hometown, I think!

I can't even remember how long I've been reading blogs, but I'd guess at least 3 years. I'm addicted to Google Reader.

I grew up in Indiana, Pennsylvania. That is unpleasant to try to explain to people.

I am dying to try Cafe Rio! Everyone I know who lives in or visits Utah says it is amazing.

I think you did an AMAZING job on the race, especially considering the wind, the hills, and the mental effects of getting lost on the way! I'm glad you had such a good time, and every race is positive because you learn something from it :)

I grew up in Chowchilla, CA. It is a tiny farming community smack in the middle of the San Joaquin Valley which is smack in the middle of CA. We moved there when I was three. At that time in 1978, there were no stop lights, no fast food restaurants, and only 5,000 people living there. My mom and sister still live there, and I think there are three stop lights, four fast food restaurants and a few more thousand people. It's still tiny.

I've been reading blogs probably for about three years. I love blogs. Because of blog reading, I don't read books as much much any more! Woops.

I love strawberries and whipped cream on my waffles.

You are an amazing runner. I can only wish upon a star that I will EVER be as fast as you. Great job with all of your goals!

Ahhh wait I think I singlehandedly keep salad joints in business..give me some greens and I will be happy forever. Slash you are a BEASTY girl! You deserve that hugh jass salad slash send your friend to be my personal chef mmk:)

I grew up in Concord, New Hampshire and it was the BEST place to grow up! So pretty, everyone knows everyone, and we had a double lot aka we had grass that went for days. We had two swing sets. Nuff said.

And yes, my name is Katelyn and I spend WAY too much time reading blogs!

I grew up in the Virgin Islands (St. Croix). I lived there until 10th grade & then I moved to South Carolina. Now I just tell people South Carolina because it is much easier to explain!

I've been reading blogs for about 1.5-2 years now. I think I found my first one through a random google search. I don't know what I did before that!

p.s. Does getting sponsored by Cafe Rio mean you get free food as well? You should SO try to do it!

I grew up in Humble, Texas, a suburb of Houston.

I read blogs all day long. I have the Google Reader App on my phone and everything. I've read them for a while but just started my own blog about a month and a half ago.

I just told Jonathan last night that I want a waffle maker!!!! I love ANY fruit on top of waffles. Yummmm. He loves pecans IN his waffles.

I just started blogging a month ago and it's literally changing my life, getting inspired and loving to meet new friends! I grew up in Suburb of Chicago, born and raised, and always thought I hated it- but now that i've moved back after leaving for 4 years in college, I couldn't imagine living anywhere else :) xo

Wow, so many good food pictures. The waffles look amazing.
Congrats on your race, you are an inspiration to me and I'm so proud! I know that you aren't happy with your time but Boston is coming up and you can redeem yourself!
I've always been a California baby, I grew up in the suburbs, yuck!
I started reading blogs 3 years ago, they're definitely a part of every day life.

Hi!!!! It's been a busy weekend - I'm catching up on blogs. (I've been reading for about a year and started mine last June.) Your friend really is a great cook - what a treat to stay with her! I hope you're feeling okay about the race in hindsight - amazing run if you ask me. Just like every experience in life, we can learn a lesson to apply next time. I love maple syrup on waffles! And I love you. :)

I grew up in a very small town in West TN. And now I live in a very small town in West TN about a hour and a half from the original very small town in West TN. lol I hate it here. I would give AAAAAAAAANYTHING to sell everything, pack up my husband and my animals, and move someplace else. ANYplace else.

I do read blogs every day. I only started about a year ago. It makes me wonder what I ever did with the internet before Facebook and Blogger. I honestly don't remember.

Favorite waffle topping is butter and syrup. Mmmmmm....

I LOVE WAFFLES! My uncle got me into putting peanut butter on waffles and it is seriously delicious!

I grew up in Salt Lake City. It's a fine place, but I'm pretty sure I will never live there again.

I've been reading blogs daily for like 4 years now. I'm a bit obsessed!

I'm a purist when it comes to waffles. Syrup and butter please (and lots of it).

Yeah for billy admitting he likes running.

And next time I'm in st george I'm finding your friend and requesting waffles. holy cow. I had to wipe the drool off my screen.

I'm so excited for our fro yo date. :) can't wait to hear all about your race! The bad and the good. Have a safe drive home!!!

At February 27, 2011 at 1:34 PM , Blogger Crafty Jogger said...

I use just a little bit of syrup on my waffles. Also, I refuse to eat waffles anywhere except at Waffle House. Also, there hashbrowns are the best thing ever!

And I definitely read blogs every day. If you skip a day, you can miss so much!

I'm so glad to hear that you got out of your funky mood quickly after the race. It sounded discouraging, but I'm glad you learned from it and are working toward more improvement! : )

I grew up mostly in NC, SC, and TN! but mostly NC. We moved around a lot for my dad's job! I love North love love love love. And yes I read blogs everyday and I read yours about 10 times per hour. What? I like rereading it that much :) And any berries and chocolate and whipped cream is a magical waffle in the making.

At February 27, 2011 at 1:52 PM , Blogger Lindsey said...

I grew up in Virginia Beach, Virginia :) I miss it!

I read blogs multiple times a day...perhaps I'm addicted?

My favorite waffle toppings are butter (enough that each crevice has some!) and syrup...lots and lots of syrup! I'll have to try waffles topped with fruit and yogurt. I've seen that popping up all over blogs lately!

Btw, you're a running star! Don't let yesterday make you forget that!

Confession: I've never been to a Cafe Rio. I am intrigued, though.

For my penance I will find out if it is located anywhere around here, and remedy this situation.

The psychology behind blogging has to be interesting in itself. I do not have a blog, and I do not do I stalk any others. However, I look forward to your posts everyday, and I always read the comments to your posts, and that ritual almost feels like a good phone call from a friend.

I am glad you are obsessed with blogging, because I would miss this simple pleasure if you stopped.

Favorite waffle topping: butter and syrup, but I am going to try that same fruit topping you were served next time. Looks delish.

I read blogs every day now. I just started about 6 months or so ago? I know, behind the times. Now, I'm addicted. I have to read them daily.

Pretty boring here in the waffle area. I like maple syrup on the side to dip. I don't like anything on top of my waffles making them soggy...weird, I know!!!

this is in response to your last few posts, but YOU ARE AMAZING!!! seriously!!!! i can't believe you are always first in your age group after only running for what, maybe a year?! incredible. i wish i was more like you. AND i wish i had gone up to st. george yesterday to see you run! i totally would have..only 2 hours away. next time!

thanks for all your inspirational posts. i love running, but it's so hard for me. it doesn't come naturally at all and i really struggle. i didn't grow up in a family that promoted any nutritional/health awareness, i don't know what to eat, i don't know how to train...i dont' know anything. your blog has seriously been my guide, so thanks for the consistent posting!!

Ok - I'm not sure if anyone had mentioned this yet, but in the picture from Cafe Rio Billy looks like he is wearing a McDonald's Fry Girl (remember her?) wig because of the peppers behind his head.

I've been reading blogs for probably 3 years, but I just recently started blogging myself and interacting with the people whose blogs I read, rather than just creeping and I have to say it's a lot more fun!

I'm glad you had a fun time after the race. The food looks amazing!

Growing up, my dad used to make homemade waffles every Saturday morning. I would fill every single hole with a mini M&M and then top it with fresh whipped cream. It.was.amazing. I also love fresh fruit, nuts, and peanut butter on my waffles (not all together)!

I'm so glad Billy admits to enjoying running now. I convinced Daniel to run with me yesterday for the first time in a looooong time. Today he bought new running shoes. :)

I grew up in a small town in the foothills of the Adirondack mountains in upstate NY. I miss it!

I started reading blogs when I started blogging a few months back- I'm addicted!

My favorite wafel toppings are Nutella and Spekuloos (a Belgian spread that looks like PB but tastes like graham crackers)! My fiance works for Wafels and Dinges in NYC (, so I'm spoiled with handmade belgian wafels ALL THE TIME. Awesome!

What a perfect 24 hours!!! Everything you ate I am cmpletely jealous of - especially that humungo salad! It looks amazing! I have been reading blogs for about 3 years or so - I'm a certified creeper.

Awesome Eats!!!

I grew up in the heart of Lancaster County, PA. (Also known as Amish Country).

I read blogs every day. It is kinda sad, I suppose, but I just love all my internet friends so much. It's such a great community!

I haven't had a waffle in forever, but I LOVE bananas and syrup on top!

I grew up in Vermont and have lived here all my life, love it here! It's so beautiful.
I've been reading blogs since last spring and became quickly SO obsessed. It's such a great community.

Your blog makes me so happy, Janae :)
I love reading your blog. I've been reading almost daily for about 2 months, but I've been reading blogs in general for about 2 years.

Nothing beats waffles in the morning. (ok, maybe ice cream or cake-but thats a given)
I like my waffles with strawberries and whipped cream. Yum.

I grew up all over for the first part of my life. We even lived in Mexico for a while because my parents were missionaries. We finally settled back in Minnesota when I was 13.

I've read blogs for the past 3-4 years. I read yours everyday, Cotters, and a few others.

I grew up in Ohio, Tennessee and Kentucky. I've only been reading blogs regularly for a couple months. I love your blog and I think you are an amazing girl! My favorite topping is butter in every hole of the waffle!

Hiiiiiiii hungryrunnergirl! So I know you have like 593850 comments a day, but I just wanted to let you know I am your newest stalker! (in a non-creepy way of course) and this may sound cheesy/dumb but coming across your blog has motivated me to run with a new perspective and remember the real reasons why I love running...thank you! :)

[I grew up in sweet home alabama, have been reading blogs on and off for 2 years, and love blueberry waffles hands down]

How nice of you to share your gift card with Billy! I loved the disclaimer about the man capris! That waffle looks AMAZING. Isn't breakfast the best?!

I grew up in a suburb of Minneapolis.

Recently got hooked on google reader...i feel so disconnected if i get behind on my subs! haha

As for my waffles...oh man. Chocolate chips! Or tons of berries. Or strawberries and whipped cream. Or peanut butter and syrup.

At February 27, 2011 at 8:35 PM , Blogger Jenn said...

Billy-very European in his man capris. Just needs the man purse aka European carryall to go with them! Score on the shoes!!

I just read your race report. Congratulations Janae!! Great job in subpar conditions! You're processing the the stupid feelings of inadequacy that creep up VERY well and constructively. I hate that for even a moment you would feel upset. You are just EXACTLY where you want to be right now!! A "perfect" scenario prep race isn't always the best thing going into the A goal race! No worries for Boston at all!!! Great job!

Grew up in Canada and Northern MN. Been reading blogs about 2 years. Made a couple of LIFELONG friends. Have a great night:)

I grew up in a small town in Ohio.

I love reading blogs! I read some every day, even if I don't have time to blog myself or comment on others. I've been reading blogs on and off for 2.5 - 3 years now. It took me awhile to start my own, but I liked commenting on other blogs, so it seemed like a good way to connect with others.

1. Rochester NY
2. Read blogs most days. Except when super busy or out of town. Been reading some blogs for probably a year and a half? Maybe 2 years?
3. I'll take anything on a waffle. Fruit, Chocolate, Nutella, Whipped's all good.

Every time you post anything from Cafe Rio I want to jump on a plane and visit RIGHT NOW.

-I grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota (midwest, holler!) and lived there my whole life until I ran away to Massachusetts for college. Now I'm studying abroad in Denmark, which is fabulous, but super far away.

-I read blogs daily and have for about a year and a half, I think? But I only discovered Googlereader recently, and thus my blog-list has expanded from about 10 to about 50 in the last few months. I love it though! Your lives are all so interesting.

-Waffle toppings? Butter and cinnamon sugar, nice and simple. :D

Hey..I just want to let you know that you have inspired me into training for the city to bay fun run (12km run) in september. Its held here in Adelaide, Australia every year. Last year i walked it with my friend. But this year im going to be running it...

I am sorry about your race, but maybe it is a good sign for know, bad dress rehearsal, good opening night? Or something like that...did I just make that up? You will be fine in Boston.

That dinner looks amazing. I don't even eat meat and I want it!

I grew up in Tennessee, but have lived in Connecticut for the past 13 years. Yikes!

I read blogs everyday, but usually not on Saturday. i need a day off!

I've never been to Cafe Rio before but, you make me want to go check it out!! LOOKS GREAT!!

Janae, you're a good wife for buying your honey new shoes!! Who knows maybe you're quietly inspiring/motivating him to run a race with you!!

My father was in the Air Force so, we never stayed in one place too long. I was born in Florida, lived in Denver,CO, spent all of my high-school years in Okinawa,JPN. Utah seems like such a beautiful state. I'd love to visit one day!! Not, crazy about waffles. Once in a great while I like an eggo with a smear of peanut butter. I've been reading a few blogs for a little while but, there's only a couple that I comment on.

1. I think Billy looks great in capris.
2. How do you know all these awesome people and how can I know them too??
3. Everything is so beautiful out there. I am jealous. One day I will visit.
4. I grew up in Springfield, Illinois, aka the home of Lincoln.
5. I do read blogs everyday. I've been reading them for about 2 years now. Most of them are about running.
6. I like powdered sugar on my waffles. I've never had fruit on them.

So exciting that your hubby likes running now! Your friend is an amazing cook for sure. I would love to see the biggest loser van, Jillian is my idol! I grew up in Rochester, NY. I can't live without reading blogs, I was sick yesterday and now I have to completely catch up today or I'm lost. Any sort of fruit + whipped cream works for me on waffles!

Holy cow! I would love to stay with a chef! You do have some really cool friends. That food looks a-mazing.

I have been reading blogs for about a year now. I don't read them too much on the weekends because that is my unplugged time of the week. :) Otherwise, daily! I am obsessed (obvi, look at my gazillion comments to you).

I have Angela try the Beta-Alanine yesterday and she had some seriously funny side effects. Her ears were tingling and they turned bright red! I couldn't help but laugh at her. I know, I am rotten.

You know, all this time, I thought it was your leg on the picture where you are seating on the grass. And I was saying "this girl is super gorgeous but shaving would be nice" . Today I realised it is Billy's leg! :)))

OK I'm starving after looking at that Cafe Rio salad! How fun for you and Megan! (earsinlung) :) Love you Meg! You two look way too pretty to be going to run! I want to run a half soon! I need to get some guts first...but let me just say... you're my inspiration!

- Strawberries!!!!!

I am a rural Iowa girl and always have been and probably always will be. I do appreciate the clarification on Billy's pants because this was what I actually thought: "Hmmm... is he wearing capris? Do guys wear those? I wonder if it's coming into style. (It takes awhile for fashion from the east and west coast to make its way to rural Iowa, so I'm usually completely clueless about things like this)." So thank you for clarifying that little tidbit for me. I am kind of awkward in the fashion realm. :) And I just got introduced to the blogging realm in August. It's fun!

Have a wonderful Monday!

I grew up partly in Farmington, New Mexico, but mostly in Wichita, KS.

I have been reading blogs for about 3 or 3 years now, and read them almost every day. Sometimes not on the weekends...

My favorite waffle toppings are peanut butter, bananas and honey OR blackberry ginger compote with maple syrup. MMMMMMMMMMM.
