counting the days

I bought tickets for game one of the American League Division Series (ALDS) at Jacobs Field. So depending on whether the Indians win the wild-card or the division, it will either be game 3 or game 1 of the series, respectively. Unfortunately, they lost today so their wild-card lead is much less secure. The Yankees and the Red Sox both play tomorrow while the Indians are off, so now we can finally get that pesky 1/2 game out of the standings differences.
Not much going on this weekend. Kristy & I went to the Udupi Cafe in Parma Heights again on Friday for some delicious vegetarian Indian food. Saturday afternoon I did my last long run before the marathon, an 8 mile run that was not one of my better runs. Last night we went to a friends house for “movie night” and watched ‘The Wedding Singer’ and ‘Ghostbusters’. It had been forever since I had seen the later, and the first time I could really appreciate how good Bill Murray is in that movie. It would definitely not have gotten as big as it was without him. Today was TV day and I’ve done little else. The weather is miserable. Not too hot but the humidity is unbearable. It feels like the jungle. I guess this is the precursor to the rain from the hurricane remnants.
This week will see me ingesting loads of carbohydrates to prepare for Saturday’s marathon. It is recommended that 55-70% of my caloric intake to be carbs. So bring on the bread and pasta! I just need to be careful not to eat too much since I will only be doing a couple short runs this week, so I won’t be burning too many calories.
