Pre-Race Fueling & Post-Race Recovery

In addition to racing a 10K this weekend, there was an awful lot of ridiculous eating and drinking.

Pre-race dinner Friday night:

Dry-aged roast & Yorkshire pudding, courtesy of our roommate, the Master of Beef:

(Seriously. Any time anyone asks me what my favorite steak house in San Francisco is, I say "My house.")

Fresh-from-the-farmers' market salad with homemade dressing, courtesy of his lovely lady:

Some people say you shouldn't drink alcohol the night before a race. Well, eff that noise. If there's beef involved, there's damn well going to be some cab up in this bee-yotch.

In short...


...it was a good night.

The recovery meal was brought to you by the letter T, which, in addition to "Ten-K Winner," also stands for....
