You know you're a runner when - the 'Groceries' post

This is what your shopping basket looks like on your weekend trip to the grocery store. (And yes, my fridge was already stuffed with veggies...noodles aren't the only thing I eat...duh...). How did the nice lady at check out respond? Well... 'Isn't the first nice and crispy day of spring the best day to restock your pantry for summer?'. Uhm...I just nodded and didn't correct her. I think she would be shocked to hear that this is a two weeks supply of taper time food (noodles for dinner!). Carb loading, baby! :)

You can not be called a runner because there are no bananas in your basket.

Well, since I'm allergic to bananas...I don't really have a choice. ;)

I have a serious weakness for donuts, and regardless of whether I'm training for a race or tapering, the donut is essential daily carb loading for me. :)

I often have a completely random basket at the grocery store (depending on what I am out off) and often wonder what the checkout person must think!

too funny. my basket only looks odd because I buy all my veggies and then david's crappy Chef Boyardee because he wants it so bad
