Not much to say about my ride today. It was long. It was windy. It was hungover. It was undernourished. My sitting area thinks 67 miles over two days was a bit much for this early in training.
At about mile 37, I was REALLY hungry, but decided rather than have a gel, I would wait until I got home and would fix myself a nice veggie/fruit and protein packed smoothie or a nice big veggie and turkey stir fry. Instead I arrived home to find this waiting for me...
...it is fried dough with banana chunks and cinnamon sugar covered in a glaze with chocolate frosting, peanut butter, peanuts and chocolate chips on top!
That my friends, is a Memphis Mafia from Voodoo Doughnuts. If you are ever in Portland and do not stop by, you are really missing out.
You will find a line much like this one...
...that wraps around the corner outside of Voodoo on a regular basis.
It is worth the wait.
Although sweet is not my thing, this really did hit the spot today.
Normally I would go for this treasure...
Sweet AND salty, of course.
Fortunately, my family went there without me today and I didn't have to wait in line.
I just had to shovel it in :P
