2:55 PM - katie b leaves for run
interjection by this time i am STARVING!!!! i had eaten 3 shot blocks before entering the water because i was already really hungry but we all know how well swimming works for me on a stomach with anything solid in it and if you don't, ask Dana - she got to see the very disgusting effects of said pukapalooza on our last swim/run brick at the Cove. so with one shot block left to fuel an entire 90 min run, i was not a happy girl.

4:50 PM - pull into Whole Foods, the mother land of all that is good and right in the world
5:15 PM - FINALLY eating, and a lot of it on my part.

5:30 PM - Dana is in a much better mood and forgives me for talking about touchy subject
