Two bites of beef

IMG_2781Went to a working lunch today at a burger joint; I was excited because I had heard their veggie burgers were good.

We all sat with our burgers and I guess I was distracted and began eating. And you know what’s coming next… I took two bites and decided that either it was a great imitation or not a veggie burger. Not veggie and didn’t freak out. I only took two bites; I wasn’t worried about it.

Now, 7 hours later, I hurt so bad I feel like my stomach needs to be pumped. Could it be the two bites of beef?

I’ll never know but I learned that I don’t miss meat as much as I thought I did. Before every race, I imagine how good a juicy cheeseburger reward would taste. I never give in to it but now I know: It sounds better than it tastes and feels.
