I should rename this blog.

Today's workout:
3.56 mile run

When I went out for my run tonight, it was almost 8 pm and still about 90 degrees outside.  It was hot, humid, and sticky.  I was slow.  I was slow not only because of the heat but because of the fact that I was still uncomfortably full from the lunch that I had several hours earlier.

I met my friend Haylee for lunch at a place called Logan's Roadhouse.  I'd never even heard of the place before Haylee mentioned it, so I looked up the menu.  It looked pretty standard.  Not true.  Logan's Roadhouse is glorious.  It is the place where dreams come true, and I work at the Magic Kingdom, so if I say it, it must be fact.  Everything on the menu looked fantastic.  But I am only one month away from Dumbo Double Dare, so I'm trying to get my workouts in and watch what I eat.  So I was looking at a grilled chicken sandwich, but something took over my mouth when it came time to order.  It was crazy.  Instead of ordering the BBQ chicken sandwich with the BBQ sauce on the side... my mouth started asking for a fried cheese and bacon burger with sweet potato fries.  Yes.  You read that correctly.  A fried cheese and bacon burger.

I can't even lie about it - that was one of the best burgers I've ever eaten.  Whoever thought of putting fried cheese on a burger is my hero.  The burger was amazing, the bacon was amazing, the cheese was amazing... my hands were shiny because of all the grease, but I don't even care.  I can't begin to fathom how many Weight Watchers PointsPlus values I consumed in devouring that thing (yes, I absolutely ate the entire burger) so I think I'll just track it as 30 and move on.

Haylee and I had lunch about 2:30 and when it came time to get ready for my run at about 7:30, I was still full.  Really full.  I have no idea how I got through my run, especially with the heat, but even after a three mile run, I am still full.  Logan's Roadhouse, what kind of sorcery are you performing?!  And more importantly... when can I see you again?!

So maybe "Running with Pixie Dust" isn't the most accurate name that I could have given this blog.  Is it too late to sell my domain and buy "Running with Fried Cheese" instead?
