I'm hoping that today's 7 miler was a sign that I'm back in the running groove. The week off from running may not have been the smartest thing I've ever done, because the following week when I should have been able to just jump right back into running, I came down with a really bad cold. I did get in a couple of short runs while I was sick but I felt like crap. Today felt better, running wise. I'll take tomorrow off and then back at it Friday..
I have several comments to my post on tamales that should be addressed. Sarah and Greentigress-you guys have never had tamales? Wow! I've lived my whole life in either Texas or California, which means I grew up with tamales, as well as enchiladas, tacos, salsa, burritos-all the yummy goodness that is mexican food. Go find a good mexican restaurant and eat some tamales. Trust me-if they're done properly, they're worth the fat and calories!
Bosco-I know Gilroy well, and they do indeed have a garlic festival with garlic ice cream. I've never been there for the festival, but I know people who have had garlic ice cream and they tell me it's pretty good. If you happen to drive through that area, roll down your car windows. The smell of garlic hangs in the air like perfume!
Stan-Come on over! We'll put you to work wrapping tamales, and you can go home with a dozen or so tamales for your freezer. Bring beer.
